Not getting the results you hoped for from your dating sites?
This is how to write an online dating profile that gets results.
Filling out your online dating profile certainly isn’t the best part of the process.
The stigma is gone -- and don’t listen to anyone who disagrees. Today, my clients zip their credit cards to the tune of anywhere around $100 to $500 (though I spill 144 pages of easy, actionable advice in my new book, for those on a budget). To be completely corny and completely honest, these sites and apps can help you find the most important person in your life -- and they all require some sort of profile (yes, even a series of photos counts).
That goal alone, though, can be paralyzing, giving even writers writers’ block and above all making the majority of profiles…let’s just say lacking the personality they so desperately need.
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.
You want to indicate your fundamental personality traits while maintaining an air of mystery.
And you want to portray yourself in an attractive, flirty way without seeming forward.
" A handle (or user name) is the name other members of the dating site will use as your "name".
