You may think that creating a perfect dating profile isn’t important. Nobody reads descriptions anyway, right? Well, no. Everybody reads descriptions on dating services. Photos are important because they grab attention, but a well-written and complete profile reveal a lot about you. The quality of the profile makes a difference. Many people won’t send a message to somebody who didn’t take time to provide any details about themselves. Don’t let that happen to you. Read this, and you’ll get a lot more attention on every dating service you ever join.

Perfect Online Dating Profile isn’t About You at All

Why do people join dating sites? Is it because of them or because of you? Because of them, of course. Nobody knows who they might meet online before joining, but every person who joins has an idea of who they are looking for. That’s why writing a good profile is important. It’s your chance to show perfect partners that you’d be great together—even people who understand that sometimes don’t know how to present themselves in the best light. Most members fill their profiles with generic stuff that bores everybody. After their profile doesn’t bring any results, people start losing confidence and blame everything on a bad photo or their looks. None of those things are crucial for success on online dating sites.

The Most Important Tip About Making a Perfect Dating Profile

Showing other people how you can make their life better is the most important thing you have to keep in mind while creating an online dating profile. For example, if you’re looking for love and you’d like to meet somebody who loves dogs and outside activities as much as you do, don’t write this:

  • An active person who loves spending time outside. My dog is my companion, so I’d like to meet somebody who cares about animals and loves being outside.

    That’s boring as hell; it reads like some medicine description. Instead of that, write something like this:

  • I can’t wait to show you my favorite hiking route. If you manage to get to the top before my dog Oscar, you’ll get a sweet reward. Are you up for that challenge?

    You see, it sounds much better just because the focus isn’t on you anymore, and you aren’t just throwing info out. The first sentence is an invite for a date. The sweet reward would spark curiosity. Challenging them at the end would make sure they’ll hit that “message” button. All of that just because the description plays with the imagination.

Mistakes People Make While Creating an Online Dating Profile

Apart from the mistake we mentioned above, new members do a lot more mistakes while creating an online dating profile. Some of them might seem obvious to you, but people are still making them.

  • using filters and photoshop on photos - doing that makes no point if you’d like to meet other members in person. You can’t use filters in real life, and profile photos that look too good to be true are smelly to an average user. Posting a photo like that might make other people think your profile is fake. Choose real photos, and you’ll have a much better chance to meet people interested in you.

  • not providing enough info on the profile - using every bit of space is important even while creating a profile on sites for casual dating and hookups. Other singles can learn more about you from that info, but matchmaking algorithms will also value your profile more. If you don’t provide your body type, hair color, etc., you’ll be invisible to everybody who uses those filters to browse profiles.

  • not being 100% honest - being dishonest about your looks, income, or anything else makes sense only if you aren’t serious about finding relationships. Just chatting online isn’t the goal for many people on dating sites, and that’s the most you can get if you lie on your profile.

Dating Profile Examples - for Love and Lust, for Men and Women

Here you can see some great examples of dating profile descriptions. Reading them will surely make you start thinking about rewriting your description. We’ll focus on short descriptions, the kind you see while browsing a site.

Dating Profile Examples for Men that Make Single Women Send Messages

Examples of profile descriptions that work well on sites for love:

  • Looking for a partner who’ll make you feel like you’re the only girl in the world? Just send a message, and every other woman in the world will disappear.

  • I’m done with being awesome on my own. Let’s start chatting; we may be awesome together.

Both examples are confident; a man who wrote them knows what he wants. Although it’s not directly written anywhere, the man from the first example shows that he is faithful and knows how to take care of his lady. The second example is open, inviting, and it sparks curiosity. A man with a description like that can expect many messages where women ask him what makes him awesome. Showing awesomeness in the chat is easy once he knows there is interest.

Examples of profile descriptions that work well on hookup sites:

  • My personality isn’t perfect, but my abs are. We won’t grow old together anyway. We may never see each other after tonight, but we’ll remember it forever.

  • Let me make you forget about all of your issues by fulfilling all of your sexual desires.

The first example works because it’s direct. It shows that a man isn’t looking for anything serious, but he’s confident, fit, and knows what to do in the bedroom. The second example is a bit more personal but still generic enough to attract more than one girl. It shows that a man understands everybody has problems (insecurities, work, bills, etc.). Still, he knows that some fun under the sheets is the best medicine.

Dating Profile Examples for Women Men Can’t Resist

Examples of profile descriptions that work well on sites for love:

  • Can you imagine yourself sitting in front of a fireplace with me? If so, send a message; it may start a fire.

  • Never underestimate the power glass of wine has. Let’s drink it together; who knows where it could lead us.

Both examples are quite mysterious, which leaves a lot of space for imagination. Instead of talking about themselves, ladies describe what they would do on a date or in the future.

Examples of profile descriptions that work well on hookup sites:

  • Men scream, too. If you’ve never screamed from pleasure, you just haven’t met the right lady.

  • You can have experience and youth at the same time. Or can you? Hit me up with a message and find out.

Men love women who don’t mind taking control and have experience. Nobody likes having sex with women who just lay there like an oil stain on the road. Both ladies from our examples did a great job showing they know how to handle a man very important on hookup sites.

How to Write a Good Online Dating Profile

It’s obvious from the examples above that the best way to write a perfect dating profile is to focus on things you can do for other members. That gives a lot more results than just shooting vanilla info about yourself. Also, always write to one person, although a lot of people will read your profile. Nobody on dating sites wants to be one of the many. Everybody wants to be the one. Users don’t want to think about other members you’re chatting with while reading your description, even on hookup sites. They want to feel like your description was written for their eyes only.

How to Make a Good Dating Profile

To recap we’ll make a list of 9 tips you have to follow when you decide to create a dating profile:

  1. upload and post real photos

  2. remember, you aren’t looking for friends

  3. don’t focus on yourself; focus on your potential partners and their needs

  4. don’t leave any blank space (if a site allows you to enter your height, eye color, etc., do it)

  5. be confident

  6. it must feel like you’re talking to only 1 person

  7. spark curiosity, let the imagination make them send a message

  8. be 100% honest

  9. your description must be positive; you want to spark joy, not sadness.
