How to Write a Dating Services Profile
Placing a dating ad on a dating services site is a great way to meet singles. It's like an advertisement - where YOU are the product. The effectiveness of your personals ad is an important factor in the number of quality responses you'll receive.
Many of the dating services listed at the Dating Services Guide give you the option of creating a free dating services profile.
When creating your profile, be sure and list as many personality traits as possible, but not too much personal information or stories. After all, you have to leave something for you to talk about on your first date. Give your public enough to get to know you but leave them wanting more.
You can discuss what you do for a living, but don't say who you work for or where. If you went to a popular university, you should mention it, but perhaps not the year of your graduation.
Avoid mentioning your previous partner! It's not a good idea to say that you're recently out of a relationship or to say that your ex cheated on you so you're looking for an honest person.
If you're looking to get married, don't explicitly state that, you'll scare away anyone, even someone who's also looking to get married. Instead, state that you're looking for a serious relationship and are not looking to play games, for example.
Next, you'll want to give yourself a catchy headline. Look at the other headlines on the dating service you're on to give you an idea of what others are using, then come up with a unique and interesting phrase for your profile that will stand out above the crowd.
Finally, you should include a picture of yourself. If you don't, you will most likely not get any responses to your dating ad. The picture should be flattering but still be a representation of what you look like. Also, it's best to submit a recent picture of yourself, not an old picture of what you used to look like 20 pounds ago.
