Your phone lights up. Your online dating inbox has a new message. For a split second, you have hope. Maybe this message will be different than all the others.
Maybe you will even find this man attractive. Perhaps this email will finally be the one that doesn't have you contemplating the potential rise in serial killers populating your neighborhood. You open your inbox.
A profile written on a third grade level. And a message that seals the deal on the trifecta of feeling hopeless: You have the most beautiful brown eyes I ever seen. If this sounds familiar, don't get too down on your luck. The world of online dating is filled with the good, the bad and the downright ugly when it comes to suitors.
But that doesn't mean you don't have control over your fate. Much of your destiny online depends on the quality of your online dating profile.
Sub-standard profiles will attract any man. Great profiles will attract the best men. Well, its time to become the best.
With a bit of hard work and training, anyone can create a profile that will stand out from the competition and attract the right people. In this post, I am going to teach you a few steps to help make this happen. It's time to stop getting passed over and start getting noticed. I hate to start this list on a shallow note, but no matter how amazing the written portion of your profile is, if the pictures are not up to par, the majority of men will never even read it.
This doesn't mean you have to be above-average in the looks department. All it means is you have to present yourself well.
Make a calculated effort to post pictures that are both flattering to your particular look while also revealing the best aspects of your personality.
Provide "bait" for the reader.
Often, men will see a profile they are attracted to, struggle with what to say, get frustrated and consequently, skip to the next profile.
They know they have to be interesting to get a response, but thinking of something interesting to say every single time they message a woman is very difficult.
Providing bait for the reader is the solution. Suppose you love camping.
