It is unfortunate that so many people join dating sites but so few put a fair effort into writing a good profile.
I am not sure why people go through the trouble of signing up and filling all those questionnaires and then post a profile that looks like a copy of any other neutral, boring, profile full of cliches and types.
I commented in parentheses throughout the profiles below what I thought of them and why: I gave this profile a passing grade because while it’s not great, nothing about it makes it terrible.
“I have been in the ——- area for a few years now and always looking to meet new people. I enjoy meeting new people and going to new places.
(This first sentence says nothing eye-catching about the woman and is very bland, and boring). (still, nothing thought provoking or attractive) I am very spontaneous and I love the outdoors, watching movies, dancing, and traveling. (Finally something somewhat interesting that she says about herself).
(Another cliché statement that is being used by thousands of other women) A great date can be staying at home with a movie and popcorn, or a night on the town. I made myself a promise a few years ago to take a vacation somewhere new, out of state, every year. Well, that is a little about me if you are interested say hello and we will chat. ” *********************** This profile gets a higher grade because it reflects on the writer’s character and her personality.
It’s a bit negative and has a few red flags but other than that – it’s not bad!
“100% Italian, fun loving, affectionate young lady who knows what it takes to make a relationship work.Tired of meeting BOYS who tell me what I want to hear, make and break promises, and aren’t ready for something serious.(This woman is voicing her opinion and shows her personality early on. )) You: Honest, mature, gentleman, emotionally, mentally, financially secure (“financially secure” is a bad move in a dating profile because it’s an immediate red flag to a guy that he might be dealing with a materialistic woman.) Knows how to treat a lady, ready for a long term relationship (this would sound a bit too eager or even desperate to most guys. I live on the East Coast and travel to West every week for work. (This would make the reader believe that she is not looking for anyone special, but just someone to kill time with and subdue her loneliness).First, meet a guy, then decide what you want out of him). I am looking to meet someone in the this area and see what happens! 🙂 (good, funny, statement that shows personality and sense of humor, she should have used more of this kind of words throughout her profile).Relocating for the right person is definitely an option. ” ******************************* This is one great dating profile.It consists a number of thought provoking statements right from the beginning that show a woman’s great personality and sense of humor.
