I started by filling in my dating profile, and actually found it quite hard to know what to say.I had never written a ‘personal ad’ so to speak before, apart from in my CV, and I didn’t think that details about my work experience would be enough to attract the man of my dreams on an a dating website!I firstly had a look on some people’s profiles on the dating site to see if that would spark any inspiration.
So many people had written, ‘I don’t know what to say’ or ‘I’m really new at this’ and it got a bit repetitive going through people’s dating profiles which all had the same summary.
I realised that what you need to do when writing your profile is to stand out from the crowd, and so the worst thing you could do is to start your site profile like a hundred other people do!
When I was seeking inspiration from other people on match, one dating profile really caught my eye.
He simply had a list of 10 funny/unique bullet points about himself.
For example he said that he was 6’2, so tall enough to carry a girl on his shoulders at gigs, and that he had cooked for a famous band!
This was short, to the point, and also made him sound interesting and exciting.
It grabbed my attention so much, that even though I hadn’t completed my profile, I sent him a cheeky wink anyway!
But back on track again I thought I would turn to Google and the match advice site to see if there were any useful hints and tips that would help me out.
