5 Mistakes In Your Online Dating Profile

Repel men with these five classic errors.

Write about it like you are talking to the reader so it is engaging and he can almost hear your voice. It's so much better to pique a man's interest with a few nuggets than brush the surface, bore him or sound run-of-the-mill.

4. Stating what you don't want. Singles online are apt to spell out exactly what they don't want in a partner rather than explain what they do want. Are you guilty of this? Don't write about the types of men who need not apply by saying things like "no couch potatoes," "no liars" or "no unemployed." The best way to attract what you don't want is to focus on it! (That's from the law of attraction.)

 

5. Using demanding language. When you use the word "must," you send up a red flag making men think, "This woman is going to be tough to please and demanding." A lot of women demand that a man must be honest, must like children, must love dogs. This acts as a repellent for the quality man you hope to attract. In addition, you are actually tipping men off about past relationship problems when you included these phrases. For instance, insisting that a man must be honest lets everyone know you've been taken in by liars in the past.

Of course you can certainly explain what you do want, but do this softly to be more inviting. Use language like, "I admire men who are honest," "who live an active lifestyle" or "who enjoy fatherhood."

If your profile has any of these five problems listed above, please apply the nine dating tips provided to improve your write up and to your chances for attracting the kind of man who will make a great romantic partner.
