Let’s face it folks, men do most of the work when it comes to online dating.

It doesn’t describe you with overused adjectives such as “intelligent, compassionate, educated, and independent” and it is free of boring statements that say nothing such as “I am as comfortable staying in as staying out.” Rather than continue describing what a good profile is, I want to bring to your attention real examples of three actual dating profiles from on popular site that I rated for content.

I commented in parentheses throughout the profiles below what I thought of them and why: I gave this profile a passing grade because while it’s not great, nothing about it makes it terrible.

This depends on your target demographic, but some good examples would be pictures of you skiing or on a cruise with friends. Women get tens to hundreds of messages per day, especially young good looking ones. The first is a well thought out message that’s specific to her profile.

In the example above, it clearly shows the person’s face, has good lighting, and is shown outside his bedroom hinting at an exciting life. An example is something you noticed that was unique in her profile.

You want to attract the men you want, not just the desperate ones who swipe yes to everyone. This is where you can tell a bit about yourself, and also state what you’re looking for. Your goal is to mostly sort through the tons of messages that will come at you, so use your profile to help discriminate between the good guys and the bad guys.

Your aim here is to get better quality matches that you want, because you’ll definitely get more messages than you can handle. When using online dating sites, it’s important to keep yourself safe.A bit of mystery doesn’t hurt, because it will make men curious to find out more.If you reveal everything in the first picture, men won’t take it seriously. A percentage of people (20-40%) wouldn’t have even read your profile.“I have been in the ——- area for a few years now and always looking to meet new people. I enjoy meeting new people and going to new places.(This first sentence says nothing eye-catching about the woman and is very bland, and boring). (still, nothing thought provoking or attractive) I am very spontaneous and I love the outdoors, watching movies, dancing, and traveling. (Finally something somewhat interesting that she says about herself).“100% Italian, fun loving, affectionate young lady who knows what it takes to make a relationship work.
