14 Online Dating Disasters Women Make
Avoid these missteps!

Recently I was coaching a woman on how to write the perfect profile for her personal ad on Yahoo! Personals. So before we wrote the profile, I asked her to send me her four best pictures.

I asked her to do this because men are as visual as Scooby Doo on steroids, and the first thing they do when they see your profile online is NOT read about your trip to Italy last summer. They want to see how hot you are. Keep in mind that every man has different taste in women. What I find attractive, my friend may not find attractive at all.

So I explained this to my client, and I asked her to send me her four best pictures . . . pictures that represent who she is in her life. What she sent me is mistake #1 of the mistakes women make online. Here are the 14 biggest online dating disasters women make:

1. Stop posting four different pictures from four different stages in your life. Women will put up pictures from ten years ago along with pictures that are current. This leaves a man wonder “Who is this person?” I've personally looked through thousands of online profiles, and the majority of women will put up pictures from different stages of their life but not put up current pictures. All pictures that you put on an online dating profile MUST BE CURRENT!!! He's going to find out what you look like when you meet, and there is no reason to lie about your looks.

2. Don't list your dislikes about Internet dating in bold, capital letters at the beginning of your profile. We've all had negative experiences online. It's better in your profile to emphasize your positive points, not your negative ones.

3. List your exact body type. It seems like on the Internet EVERYBODY is “athletic and toned, “petite,” or “fit and trim.” He will find out what you look like!! You might as well tell the truth in your profile, so you'll have a qualified lead and not waste somebody's time.

Summer is magic on the East Coast. It was funny. Before I went on this little break, I was thinking about where I wanted to go. I live in a perpetual spring and summer.
