Profilesby Dan Epps
Don't settle for a mediocre dating profile.
Create something memorable....
Dating profiles are somewhat
When you first look at an online dating
profile, it looks easy. All you have to
do is briefly list your interests, put in
a catchy line or two, and that's it,
In reality, an Internet data profile is
much more difficult than it looks. You
have to pack so much information into
those few profile dating lines; otherwise
no one will know enough about you to make
a useful judgment. One of my pet peeves
is seeing a profile with nothing more
than the words "I'll tell you later."
Actually, no you won't, because there
won't be a later.
A dating personality profile has to say
everything about you. It has to say your
likes, your dislikes, and most of all it
has to give a strong message about who
you want to meet while at the same time
giving a positive impression of you. This
is why it is so difficult to make perfect
free dating profiles.
When I was trying to get my Internet
dating service profile together, I
couldn't figure out who to ask for
advice. In general, I am a great writer,
and I am also pretty good at presenting
myself. The problem is that it is much
easier to get advice on your resume or
your interviewing techniques than on your
dating profiles. You see, to get dating
profile advice, you need to ask the
opinion of someone of the opposite sex. A
gal friend who is similar to someone you
would like to date. Once you get dating
advice from a friend who is your type,
however, it puts things in an awkward
position between you and that
On other hand, you can't really get
advice on your dating profiles from your
guy friends either. There is a certain
way that guys talk to each other, and no
matter how well meaning they are, they
probably won't give you good advice. When
you're hanging with the guys, they will
talk to you like one of the guys. They
will tell you to put things in your
dating profiles to impress the ladies. To
show off. To look strong and manly. It
just doesn’t work.

|Dating Tip: Listen to what the other person is saying! This is important. Instead of fretting about what you’ll say next, still the wheels of your mind and listen. If a man tells you about his weekend on the golf course, and you know absolutely nothing about golf, just ask him what he likes about it, how he got into it, etc.
In reality, however, your dating profile
needs to be a little less filled with
bravado and a little more charged with
In my case, I went through about five or
six dating profiles before I was done. As
a matter of fact, before I decided which
of the dating profiles to use, I was so
wound up that I couldn't even decide on
the dating service. Should I go to the
service for fitness conscious singles or
the one for musicians?
In the end, I put all of the dating
profiles in a hat and picked one. Now
I am waiting to see the results.
