3 Tips To Writing A Date-Grabbing Online Profile


3 Tips To Writing A Date-Grabbing Online Profile
Make your profile stand out with these 3 tips!

2. Promote Yourself. You do not want to give the guy the idea that he does not need to even try to impress you. Telling potential dates you are low maintenance, easy to get along with and up for anything is great if you are looking for platonic friends to hang out with — not the best self-description if you are looking for love.

It is important that you are not so accommodating that you slip into the friend zone. Guys want girlfriends, not another buddy, so place yourself on that pedestal and allow him to go all out. Part of the fun of dating is the excitement of showing off to each other by looking your best on the dates, making special plans together and enjoying that initial first stage of attraction. It is all part of a process and each step builds on each other.

3. Share What You Want. Guys are not mind readers and it is important to describe your relationship goals and desires. The clearer you are about what you want in love will open better doors to the type of person you want to date. Many people have the mistaken impression that the less criteria they list, the better. While you don't want to have an unattainable list that no guy can ever reach, it is important to express those must-haves upfront so you attract those who are reaching for the same relationship goals.

Online dating is a viable resource to meeting people outside your normal routine. The key for making the most of that experience is putting a little time, thought and effort into creating a profile that attracts those you are excited about meeting.
