We frequently get requests for help from Plenty of Fish (see our review on POF) and Match (our review on Match) members for advice on making their online dating profiles more appealing.Typically, the alarm bells start clanging as soon as we see their profile taglines: 90% of these taglines are either typical (overused and boring) or slightly needy.
Your online profile is what will help people decide whether to contact you or not.
Too bad most of them are blowing a great opportunity to grab your attention, and make you want to dig deeper.
Let’s be realistic—most of us enter zip code and age parameters, and then narrow the criteria with a custom search for a word of interest, such as 'brewpub', 'warriordash', or 'camping' Then, as soon as humanely possible we get to the photos.
The dating profile headline is a one-time lightning-quick opportunity to show a little flair, and highlight something about your personality or a special interest.
The tagline can showcase your wit, a love of poetry, sense of humor, a romantic or philosophical nature, etc.
