Using proper spelling and grammar in your dating profile is vital, especially for men.
A study by Grammarly, a writing-enhancement app and browser add-on, shows men with just two spelling mistakes in their dating profile are 14% less likely to get a response.
Even something as simple as “I love working out and tried yoga for the first time a few months ago, but I’m more of a spin class kinda girl” will do the trick.
Most dating sites, like Match.com, offer tons of advice to make the profile writing process smoother.
Now, don’t go and copy the entire profile, but stick with the overall themes that worked for you.
We’re not trying to burst anyone’s bubble, but it’s probably only a good idea to talk about sex in your dating profile if you’re on a site just for that, like Be Naughty, not a mainstream one like Match, Zoosk, or e Harmony.
Research done by Plenty of Fish says women who found a relationship through online dating used the word “relationship” and similar words 16% more often in their profiles than women who didn’t.
Here’s how to write a dating profile to attract women.
If you’re going to follow one piece of advice from this article, make it this one.
Think about how you would feel if you read a guy’s profile that said something like “I want a blonde, blue-eyed woman who isn’t over 5’5″, is a doctor, doesn’t smoke, has never been married, loves dogs but hates cats, enjoys Italian food but hates Indian food, knows every word to every Beatles song, and has visited all Seven Wonders of the World.” OK, that’s an extreme example, but you know what I mean.
Avoid lists like “I want a blonde, blue-eyed man who is over 6 feet tall, is a doctor, doesn’t smoke, has never been married, loves dogs but hates cats, enjoys Italian food but hates Indian food, knows every word to every Beatles song, and has visited all Seven Wonders of the World.” It’s unlikely that you’ll find someone who can check off all the things on your list, and you probably can’t check off everything on his list either. So, pick the most important qualities you’re looking for and be more specific about those instead of creating an exhaustive list.
