Eye-Catching Dating Profiles

by Dan Epps

Don't settle for a mediocre dating profile. Create something memorable....

Dating profiles are somewhat deceptive.

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, right? Wrong.

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 friend.

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: Remember the weather! Some people have the “gift of gab,” the ability to make strangers feel like they’ve known them forever. They are fearless about talking about the weather, gas prices, whatever. Shy people worry that talking about mundane things will make them appear stupid. But seemingly dull subjects like the weather affect everybody. People relate to them.

In reality, however, your dating profile needs to be a little less filled with bravado and a little more charged with honesty.

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.
