5 Ways To Ruin Your Online Dating Profile
Is your online dating profile up to par? Check out these critical mistakes to avoid.

5. Leaving your number or email address. If you put your phone number or email address on your profile for the world to see, you are pretty much saying that you are desperate and don't care who calls you or whom you go out with. It is like a billboard pointing above your head that says, "This person has no standards whatsoever. This person will date anyone. Please call anytime day or night. She doesn't even mind waking up to take your call."

If you have pictures of all of your expensive toys and your big house, the beautiful single person checking out your profile might be concerned that you are looking for another object. So keep your profile pictures of yourself, and if you have to put a picture of your car, because you just can't help yourself, make sure you are in it.

If you like biking, talk about where you like to ride and why you like to do it. Get into the emotion of what makes your heart sing and talk about the positives things in your life and how you would like to share these times with someone special. Keep the personal information out, and the periods, commas and capital letters in. If spelling and creativity are not your forte, ask a friend or get a dating coach to help you with you make a few changes and show your best self.

Don't ruin your profile by making these five big mistakes. Make your online dating profile stand out; make it mysterious, exciting and full of potential. Sometimes finding love takes time, so make the time to find it and have fun in the process. Do you know what you are looking for? Here's how to figure it out.
