And don’t forget to use photos that show you mid-activity — running, painting, wine tasting, skydiving — they help spark meaningful convos as well.
On profile-centric sites (Ok Cupid, Match.com, JDate, etc.) Don’t use adjectives to describe yourself — they’re meaningless. Don’t use too many exclamation points or emoticons!!! Don’t treat your profile as a biography, and don’t introduce yourself at the beginning or sign at the end.
On apps that don’t require much writing Don’t try to summarize yourself in something the length of a tweet or two. Use something that you’re actually interested in and turn it into a tweet length, one-liner, or quick story — think upbeat or even funny. Don’t have expectations, put your phone away, and don’t hype dates to the point of nervousness.
Since its launch, the site has gotten a lot of media coverage.
So online dating — on a site, an app or three, or both — is a no-brainer.
It expands your dating pool exponentially, opens you up to new experiences and people, and pretty much the entirety of the single (and some of the not-so-single) population is doing it. When I launched my business two and a half years ago, I had no idea what the response would be like, so I charged for a complete makeover. This is your romantic life that we’re talking about.
J Do feel confident enough to change your profile text and photos often. Do be relatable, open-minded, and give people the benefit of the doubt.
Don’t fall in love with someone based on their profile.
