A dating profile for the ladies
Don’t choose a picture where you are not the main focal point.
‘If a dating profile asks what you’re looking for, don’t give too much detail.
Anything concrete like this brings you alive to anyone reading. Make the effort to renew your profile on a regular basis with relevant information about yourself.
Many people find poor grammar and spelling a turn off, and the best of us can make mistakes, so be careful on this point.
And secondly, you’ll be surprised how often people fall for someone who doesn’t tick any of their original boxes! It’s good to love yourself but there is a line that should not be crossed. If so, don’t contact them if you’re someone who likes to be in bed by 9pm. A profile that mentions family and friends, volunteering, and enjoying spending time with kids is a good sign.
Another survey found that ‘basic’ ladies are steaming hot: Potential love interests are 8% more likely to reach out to a woman who has the words “pumpkin spice” somewhere on her dating profile, than they were to those who didn’t mention the fall drink.
That’s according to a survey of 2,800 singles released this week by dating site Plenty of Fish, which concluded that “ladies may want to consider putting the words ‘pumpkin spice’ in their online dating profile.” (The same did not hold true for men.) This is mixed news for the dating set.
So it only seems logical you would use the good old Internet for finding that special someone, too.
That said, the world of online dating can be daunting if you’ve never tried it before, so here are our top tips for making the most of your dating profile and spotting a great potential partner.
