Combining the two in an online dating scenario can complicate the delicate dance even further. Maybe Boy and Girl meet—or maybe they don’t, and if they do, do Boy and Girl live up to their profiles and live happily ever after?
Once it was: “Boy meets Girl,” and, depending on circumstance, “Boy gets (or does not get) Girl.” Now, it’s Boy posts profile. You never get a second chance to make a first impression.
Yet, when it comes to online matters of the heart, finding “the one” often remains elusive.
That’s because love, like the Internet, has a lingo and etiquette all its own.
For that, you need to combine persuasive language with the kind of images that makes your profile pop rather than flop, which, as many have learned from experience, isn’t as easy as it sounds.
There are myriad of dating sites on which you can cast your line to do a little love fishing.
These 10 top online dating profile examples will help. One reason is because their profile reads like a boring, dating profile shaped turd. If you don’t keep on reading, I swear I won’t be upset with you.
If you recognize yourself in some of them, I think it might be worth taking the time to keep on reading my profile.
Bottom line: a dating profile—your first impression—is “sell copy,” and you’re the product being marketed.
The trick for you as “Boy” to get the biggest bang for your buck is to optimize your pitch so it will best appeal to Girl’s brain with content that directly tags her where Cupid lives.
