Your online dating profile pretty much seals the deal when it comes to whether or not you land a hot date. Every day, millions of men and women search dating sites, but some profiles get constantly overlooked. If you’re planning on creating a Backpage2 website, you need to craft the perfect profile so that you don’t end up one of those dateless guys who spend their entire weekend dreaming about going out on a date.

A picture is worth a million words

Forget about a picture being worth a thousand words; it’s worth way more than that. You don’t need to hire a photographer or go out and buy a new fancy wardrobe for your profile picture. You do need to make sure that you look nice.

Take a look at yourself in the mirror and see what you look like. Comb your hair, wash your face, and maybe brush your teeth if you haven’t done so recently. You want to make sure that the person who looks at your photo likes what they see.

You can take a selfie if that’s what you want or ask someone to take a picture for you. The camera on your smartphone is good enough for a profile picture. You don’t need a digital camera or anything that’s over the top fancy. People want to see what you really look like, not you looking like a celebrity.

Don’t lie in your profile

Okay, so you don’t want to tell the world how much money you made. Maybe you don’t want to tell potential dates that you just got a speeding ticket. It’s understandable that you might not want to tell people highly personable information. However, this is big, and you don’t want to lie in your profile.

If you tell people you’re a doctor, and you’re really unemployed and living in your mom’s basement, eventually, people will find out. It’s best to be honest or not even mention something if you feel that the information is too sensitive. Sometimes, the best thing to do is to omit anything you don’t feel belongs in your profile and discuss it down the line with potential dates.

Make sure there are no spelling or grammar mistakes in your profile

You don’t need to be an English teacher to create a flawless profile. Run your profile through the free version of Grammarly or use the spell check in whatever office software your computer has. You want to make sure that there are no misspelled words or anything that looks weird.

Someone looking at your profile will immediately think that you’re uneducated and will write you off quickly if your profile is filled with too many spelling mistakes. You also don’t want to use a bunch of emojis or anything that makes the text in your profile difficult to read.

The goal is to have a short bio that keeps everything easy to read and has a flow to it. If you write short choppy sentences or if your profile is filled with words that aren’t spelled correctly, people will skip it over immediately.

Don’t write a book when creating your profile

What’s the first thing that you do when you go to read someone’s profile? You scroll down to see how long it is. No one is going to read more than a few hundred words at the very most. If you find yourself writing an autobiography, stop and clean it up immediately.

You’ll have plenty of time to tell people all about your first puppy and the person who broke your heart. Now isn’t the time to mention any of that. Keep everything as short as possible, and if you must, tell them to reach out and message you if they want to know more. The person probably has no idea that you’re going to tell them all about your grandma’s famous chocolate chip cookies, but it’s a surprise waiting to unfold.

Final Thoughts

Don’t overthink your dating profile. Make sure that people can see you easily in your pictures. The pictures should be up to date, and don’t flood your profile with useless information. Also, if you have a dozen cats, don’t tell potential dates until you go out on your first date. You don’t want the person to get the wrong idea about you.
