9 Surefire Ways To Make Your Online Dating Profile Stand Out [VIDEO]


Stop committing these major dating faux pas!

When it comes to online dating, there's definitely a science to filling out your profile. Sometimes, it almost seems like the amount of effort you put into attracting the right guy never pays off.

You'll hit it off with Prince Charming only for the disappointment to kick in once you exchange numbers. Not only do you have nothing in common, he's the complete opposite of your type. So where did you go wrong?

Let us know if we've got it right. One of the many interests you've mentioned in your profile is that you love pets. You also love long walks on the bench?

Are we getting any closer?

While it's great that you're making your preference known, it doesn't really hint at the type of person you are. Do yourself a favor and throw those overused points away!

What should you include in your online dating profile?

That's the million dollar question. Despite today's modern age of technology, the dating struggle has never been so real.

There are copious guides from questionable sources that promise you'll find your dream guy in just a few steps. Because of that, you can't help feeling skeptical of it all. You're no better off than where you started.

If figuring out what you should avoid putting in your profile leaves you with a major headache, keep reading.
