Stop making these mistakes and you can double your dates overnight.
If your philosophy about online dating is that you don’t want to turn someone off with your profile, you’re doing it all wrong! You cannot be all things to all people. It’s much better to be specific and memorable than vague and forgettable. So, if your profile consists of a series of juxtapositions like, “I’m just as comfortable in high heels as I am in sweats.” Or “I like to go out and have fun, but I also enjoy a quiet night at home,” you can consider your profile completely unmemorable and resolve yourself to having an empty inbox
If you are frustrated with your online dating results, you may be making one of several, classic mistakes, so revising your profile could be the solution. When clients come to me as a dating coach asking for help with their profiles, these are the mistakes I tell them to watch out for.

You may not have pumped into one another at the Shakespeare and Company bookstore in Paris while you read Simone de Beauvoir and he browsed through Jean-Paul Sarte, or sat beside each other on a train bound to Rome, or had a kismet moment one night at a London nightclub, but it all began with a click and wink on POF.com but the rest is still history.
The rule about not being able to make a second first impression definitely applies to writing an online profile. Many people do not take much time and put forth very little effort into composing a meaningful description of themselves and the type of person they'd like to date.
