Mistake #1: You Don't Self-Promote You might be hesitant to really play up your assets because you worry it will make you seem cocky or self-involved.
But leaving out interesting info, like how you're awesome at snowboarding or speak two languages, results in a lackluster first impression.
You went online because there's a huge pool of guys to date, and hooking one is supposed to be easy. According to Internet dating experts, many women are guilty of making these five mistakes online.
So how come you're only meeting losers, or worse, not getting any attention at all? With a few tweaks and maybe a little white lie or two, your inbox will soon be stuffed with messages from guys dying to meet you.
But that can backfire because it makes guys think you have issues or are high-maintenance.
Also, specifics are key, so if you're going to add "music" to your likes, be sure to mention one or two of your favorite bands.
Plus, guys have learned to dismiss those generic descriptions since they've been on dates with women who describe themselves the same way but are total duds in person. So instead of writing that you're adventurous, make him really believe it by including a story about that time you took a spontaneous trip to the beach with girlfriends and swam with dolphins.
Not only does this approach make you seem a hell of a lot more interesting, but it also gives guys an easy icebreaker.
