Writer For Rolling Stone Loves My Profile, But Hates My Writing
A compliment can go a long way, but see why other people's opinions don't really matter.

When I was online dating I received a message from a guy living in Boston. I wasn’t too impressed with his pictures. He wasn’t completely bad looking, but he was no Brad Pitt either.

He sent me this message: “What a great--and-well-written--profile. Funny. Learned. Arousing, too, even. Cheers for the great read.” –C. (I will keep his name hidden to protect the innocent).

I told him that I write profiles professionally.

I’m proud of what I’ve learned about men and women and the way we can communicate effectively with one another. I’ve gotten lots of testimonials from clients all over the world about their online profile rewrites. I don’t have them on my website yet, I’m still in the process. Here are just a few.

-“Dinacolada's carefully designed questionnaire, help her better understand you and create great summary of you and your personality. Your profile picture is one thing, but how your present yourself is another. If you are struggling with you dating profile dinacolada is your go-to person.”

-“Best way to make a lame profile awesome!”

-“Excellent. Added the perfect amount of polish to my profile to make it dramatically better, but still kept the writing style in line with my old profile. Highly recommended!”

These testimonials were not from professional writers from the New York Times Review (one of his other gigs).

They were people just like you.

People who are looking for love, looking for romance or just looking to make a connection with someone new. We all want somebody to love. Want to know how rejection can be turned into EPIC Love?

Mr C. sent me his website, which was basically his resume. Seeing his resume didn’t inspire me to date him, but it did inspire me to collaborate writing with him. I wouldn’t mind writing for Rolling Stone, (one of the magazines he has written for), but my writing dreams are more along the lines of Cosmopolitan, not World Literature Today.

I sent him the link to my site, and said, “But whatever you do, don't read the sassy sexy dating toolkit for women. It's horrible! Seriously. It's so far down on the bucket list.”

I know my site and toolkit need editing. I’ve been thinking about it for a while. I am in the process of redoing my entire site, and it doesn’t happen in one day because I put my heart into what I do. Empires aren’t built in a day.

Here was his response after seeing my website.… “That is unbelievably awful. Wow. Do not call yourself a writer.” My website since then has had a total makeover, I would love for you to check it out and come away inspired!

I’m a big fan of the list: The do list, that can be found on a double-folded piece of paper which I snagged from The Four Hour Work Week by Tim Ferris. The grocery list, the kissing list (which I started after an inexperienced kissing session in 7th grade), the yearly to-do list, the 3-year big goal list, the bucket list, and my all-time favorite lists ...
