To Grab A Man's Attention, Say THIS In Your Online Dating Profile

I am healthy, caring, respectful and mature. I have been told that I am a down to earth type of woman. Love nature, long walks, beaches, hiking and yoga. I also like to cook, shop, read, and go to the movies.

Really? BORING. Please shoot me.


Saying this on a dating profile STINKS! Please tell me this isn’t you! No one wants to hear a list. Instead, tell men about how totally and utterly AWSOME you are! Be different! Talk to guys in the 1st person.

Say this instead:

It's the simple things in life that please me. Running around in the rain without an umbrella, walking barefoot on the beach with the sand between my toes, reading Danielle Steel's latest and PRETENDING to work my abs at the gym are some of my pleasures! I make a mean chocolate chip cookie and I can whip up a stir fry that is to DIE for, but I need you to handle the grill. I mean propane is explosive ... right?

See the difference? Don't say "I can cook" — tell them what you LOVE to cook and make them drool. Don't say "I like the beach" — make them feel the sand between their toes. 

What's your favorite movie? Why? Explain a part in the movie that fits your life.

Hit guys at their senses. Include them in your plan and make them feel special.


Don’t tell me you have two daughters and they are "the most important things in your life". Instead, say "I have 2 kick ass daughters —​ one robbing me for tuition money and a second borrowing my car and never refilling the tank.”

And, of course, don't forget to have a great opener:

"Single mother and full time student by day and sassy bartender by night! I am a hard working Tigress with an award-winning personality."


NOW you have my attention!
