‘Women have a tendency to write too much because we enjoy reading long profiles. Imagine you are doing an icebreaker introduction where you have to sum yourself up briefly.’ Most people want to find someone who can make them laugh, so show people you have a sense of humour.
Anything concrete like this brings you alive to anyone reading. Make the effort to renew your profile on a regular basis with relevant information about yourself.
Many people find poor grammar and spelling a turn off, and the best of us can make mistakes, so be careful on this point.
After all, it’s not always easy to big yourself up without sounding conceited or (even worse) desperate.
But did you know that one in three couples now find love online?
Maybe you’ve decided to finally give online dating a try, or maybe you’re just wondering why your matches aren’t responding to your profile. Don’t whine about your singleness status, about the bad first dates you’ve had lately or about the sad state of politics in your area.
