"A hat leads her to assume you have a balding problem that you are trying to hide," says Coloccia.
"That's like saying, 'I like sleeping and breathing.'" 4) Stick with the truth.
Typically, men lie about their height and women about their weight.
Most girls will actually do the adjusting and take an inch or two off whatever height you write anyway. If you're only 5'7'', and her profile says only over six feet need apply (or vice versa), play by the rules.
It is unfortunate that so many people join dating sites but so few put a fair effort into writing a good profile.
I am not sure why people go through the trouble of signing up and filling all those questionnaires and then post a profile that looks like a copy of any other neutral, boring, profile full of cliches and types.
What makes any female dating profile great is the fact that it stands out from the rest of the profiles on any given online dating site. It’s not generic, neutral and overly politically correct.
It doesn’t describe you with overused adjectives such as “intelligent, compassionate, educated, and independent” and it is free of boring statements that say nothing such as “I am as comfortable staying in as staying out.” Rather than continue describing what a good profile is, I want to bring to your attention real examples of three actual dating profiles from on popular site that I rated for content.
I commented in parentheses throughout the profiles below what I thought of them and why: I gave this profile a passing grade because while it’s not great, nothing about it makes it terrible.
1) Pick a mature (not silly or arrogant) screen name.
Big Mikey9inch may sound clever to you, but chances are Sweet Jen28 will want nothing to do with a guy who feels the need to "advertise" (particularly when you're probably closer to Not So Big Mikey4inch).
Have fun with your screen name, but avoid being vulgar or cocky.
