"No More Duck Lips"! and Other Rules of Great Dating Profiles


"No More Duck Lips"! and Other Rules of Great Dating Profiles
Online dating is a great tool. Figure out how to utilize it the right way here.

And please stay away from clichés. Duck lips, cleavage shots, and photos of you hanging on others don’t help you stand out. They just make you look tacky. You want a picture that’s flattering and looks like the real you, not a gimmick.



Of course, everyone is displaying her best side on an online profile, but don’t feel a need to put every single positive detail about yourself on there. You want to make sure you include enough in your profile to describe yourself well and honestly, but you still want to have something to talk about when you meet.



Keep any emails and chats short. If you think you like the person, take it offline and meet for a date to get to know the real him. Remember, dating is about face-to-face interaction!

The dating world can be complex and intimidating, but setting up an online profile is an easy, wonderful way to start meeting new people. Keep your profile simple and honest, and online dating will be a fun adventure. (If nothing else, you’ll have some great stories to share.) You never know – you just might find what (or who) you’re looking for!
