Techniques to Make your Online Dating Profile Stand Out

Most people who join dating sites either don’t know how or don’t take the effort to make their online dating profile stand out. The following techniques will help your profile rise to the top, so that you’ll attract the cream of the crop!


Online Dating Profile Examples

Your online dating profile tells the short story of you! What are your pet-peeves? What makes your heart sing? Here is a good example:

Seeking Yang to Balance my Yin

I’m an introverted romance writer, with a rich inner-life. Alone but not lonely describes me. But…my life is lacking balance. If you are an outgoing guy who loves laughter, bring it on!

My likes: caramel lattes, cantaloupe smoothies, weekend getaways to no particular destination, walking barefoot in freshly mown grass, new age music and kind people. My dislikes: politics, stupidity, lies and zucchini.

Message me if:

You enjoy people watching and creating their pretend stories.

You have the soul of an artist.

You enjoy your life but want to share it with someone.

This is a woman who knows what she wants. She’s captivating, but quasi-mysterious. Most of all she isn’t needy!

Funny Online Dating Profiles

Ask 10 people the #1 thing they seek in a mate. All 10 will reply “a sense of humor”! Here is an example of a funny online dating profile:

Help Me Stay Awake!

My circadian rhythm peaks at dark-thirty. Unfortunately, by day, I’m a suit struggling to keep awake at a real job. By night I’m a great sax player.

My favorite food group is chocolate. For fun, I enjoy canoeing and snow tubing. Am trying to spiffy up my vocabulary by mastering a word a day, but keep dozing off, on the dictionary.

Give yourself a plus if you’re a dog lover. But don’t waste my time if you’ve got a poodle dog. (Or any sissy species that wears nail polish and bow ribbons)

Message me:

If you know 100 ways to help me stay awake.

If you don’t believe everything I said, but still think I’m kinda cute.

This guy is a keeper! He knows how to appeal to the “mothering” instincts of women, yet still comes off totally masculine.

Write a Bang-up Headline

This may be your sole opportunity to attract your dream guy. You’ll likely spend more time writing a bang-up headline than writing the profile itself. Take care to stay away from tacky headlines like “I might be the woman of your dreams…”.

Cheesy headlines like this are a dime a dozen. Your object is to make your profile stand-out from the rest.

If you can’t think of a headline, write your profile. Something in it will spark your creative inspiration. Or, you can read other women’s profiles to get ideas. Of course, you won’t copy them verbatim! That’s not only plagiarism, it does you a real disservice because you are unique.

Introduce Yourself

Consider the intro as your bio for online dating. You’ll fare much better if you write an accurate and honest description. If you get “stuck”, consider writing a list of 5 good attributes about yourself.

Your picture is already posted, so that focusing on your physical characteristics is redundant. Also, don’t resort to clichés like “enjoys moonlight walks on the beach”.

In other words, be the preview, not the movie.

Positive Mental Attitude

Your profile should make a positive impression on men. You’ll get much higher male-mileage by describing who you are, what you like and what kind of person you want to date than with negativity.

For example, you will commit online dating suicide by bringing up failed relationships, your broken heart blah blah blah. Save your non-negotiables, such as “cheaters need not apply”, until you meet him face-to-face.

The All Important Picture

Men are visual! Hook them with your dazzling smile and reel them in with your stand out profile.

Consider ending your online dating profile with a question that will intrigue men to message you. (Is your RV excited to hook-up with my Crockpot?)
