Don’t fall in love with someone based on their profile.
For the better half of a decade I have been writing online dating profiles for men and women all over the world.
It is ok to desire certain qualities in a partner, but they have to worded correctly.
This online dating profile example comes across as needy, negative, arrogant, aggressive, and far too demanding.
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.
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.
So let’s spin the desires above into a profile example that sends positive vibes that will attract positive attention.
And don’t forget to use photos that show you mid-activity — running, painting, wine tasting, skydiving — they help spark meaningful convos as well.
You’ve got your sweatpants on, ordered enough Thai for two but only for one, and there’s a bottle of open booze somewhere in the room — you must be single on Valentine’s Day. And I’m probably doing the exact same thing, with one big difference: instead of crying my way through…er, I mean dry-eyed watching a cheesy romcom, I’ve got my computer open, and I’m working overtime.
Such is the life of an online dating profile ghostwriter.
Yes, you heard me — I craft other people’s online dating pages for Tinder, Ok Cupid, Our Time, you name it.
From choosing and editing their photos to providing individual advice to completely writing (or rewriting) personalized summaries, through Profile Polish I’ve remade thousands of profiles for people around the world.
