10 Tips that Guarantee You'll Stand Out

When it comes to online dating, your profile is the initial factor in determining the type and quality of men you'll attract.

 

Spend thoughtful time in developing or updating your profile because what you put out there is what you'll attract. Here are 10 tips for creating a profile that will catch his eyes and heart.

1) Get in the Right Frame of Mind


Many people approach online dating with skepticism, hesitation or doubt due to past unsuccessful online dating efforts and unresolved issues from previous relationships. This negative energy will come across in your profile if you don't change your mindset. Before creating your profile, get in the right frame of mind by putting yourself in a positive state where you feel uplifted and inspired. This may mean working through unresolved issues, spending time in nature soothing your soul, getting a massage, visualizing your ideal partner and feeling cherished and loved in your ideal relationship, etc.

2) Come Up with a Great Username and Headline

Create a username and headline that reflects who you are. For a username, come up with 2-3 short words that reflect your personality, passions and/or looks. Create a headline that is positive, upbeat and intriguing. Ideas for your headline include playing off of your username, stating your intention for being on the site, asking a question or sharing your favorite short quote.

3) Show Current Pictures of What You Look Like on a Daily Basis

Men are more visual than women and tend to skip over profiles with no or poor photos. Post a headshot as your profile picture (where you're smiling, that's no more than 2 years old) that clearly shows your face. In the photo gallery, post wholesome and classy photos of yourself in different settings (i.e. full body photo, enjoying your favorite activity (e.g. playing golf), hugging your dog (if you have one), out with friends, etc.). Don't post photos where you're dressed or posed provocatively, drinking too much alcohol, with a man - even if he's your brother or friend and that show what you used to look like.

4) Complete the Checklist About Yourself and Preferences You'd Like in a Partner

If you're serious about finding a compatible partner, check as many of the aspects that describe you and check the preferences you'd like in a mate. This will let potential matches learn more about you and helps dating sites create and email matches to you. You'll attract more of the kind of man you're looking for when your checklist and preferences are complete.

5) Be Open
