1. Uze spelll chek.
Better yet – ask someone to read over your profile. Bad spelling and grammar are instant turn offs.
2. Don’t be too general.
Oh you like movies? So do 99% of people. Tell us which genre of movie you like best.
3. Avoid clichés.
Mentioning “long walks on the beach” is a waste of your word count. Find original ways to express your interests.
4. Don’t describe your ideal partner in too much detail.
Sure, we all have a “perfect” candidate in mind, but often the right person ends up surprising you.
5. Don’t be too sarcastic
…or self-deprecating in your profile. Humour is an asset, but so are confidence and positivity.
6. Don’t be a Debbie Downer.
You’re allowed to dislike girls in Ugg boots, but there’s no need for judgment or criticism on your profile.
7. No one wants to be your last-resort.
Even if you’re “desperate” and “sick of the hunt,” maintain a positive attitude towards dating on your profile.
8. Don’t include your autobiography.
Give enough info to grab someone’s interest, but save some details for the first date – and hopefully the second!
