If a picture is worth 1,000 words, then a good headline is worth 999. The purpose of a headline for your profile is to magnetically draw the person in to want to read more about you. If you can come up with a fantastic headline, it won’t even matter if you aren’t a Calvin Klein model. Writing a good headline is the difference between a woman going onto the next profile or actually clicking on your profile to learn more about you. To make a good headline, try to either invoke curiosity or use humor to capture her attention.
Write Something Funny
After confidence, humor is the next trait that many single women look for when trying to find a man. Tap into that funny bone and feel free to make fun of movies, poke fun at yourself, include a couple of quotes from your favorite comedian, or just post a humorous musing. If you infuse your profile with humor, then you’ll definitely keep her attention.
Short But Sweet
Your online dating profile shouldn’t read like Tolstoy’s War and Peace. Your want your profile to grab and keep her attention, but you want to leave her wanting more. Make sure to keep your profile fairly short, while still giving her some detailed insight as to who you are and what you’re interests are. Keep it funny, make it funny (see above). You should be able to make it interesting enough that she’ll want to reply without writing turning your profile into a book.
No Three Word Answers
I know I said keep it short, but come on. If you keep your profile or communications too short where it seems like your at a loss for words, you’ll end up being on the short end of the stick and getting no responses. Prove a little insight about yourself, but find a way to do so so that you stand out. Make it interesting… share the parts that are worth discussing, but keep it normal. We don’t need to know that you’re still sleeping with a night light until after the first few dates.
Post A Variety Of Photos
One photo of yourself won’t cut it. The women looking at your profile will want to get an idea of who you are and what you like to do and the easiest way to do so is through photos.
- Have at least one photo of you doing something that you love to do. Your natural charisma and confidence will exude from the photo and both are personality traits that women find attractive in a man.
- You should also post a photo of you with your friends and family so that the woman can see your loving and caring side. You’ll be using biology to your advantage as women instinctively are looking for a man who will not only be able to protect them, but who will also be good as a parental unit.
- Finally, if you have a photo of you doing anything unique and wild, you should post it. Everyone craves an escape from boredom and the daily grind. By posting a photo of yourself doing something different, you can show her your adventurous and spontaneous side.
… and remember to make sure your photos are recent!
Women like men who can be confident and assertive without being cocky or controlling. While confidence is not a trait that you overtly tell someone, it is one that can come across through the way you write your profile. It’s the way that you come across in what you write. So choose your words wisely.
