Considering the current scenario, we think it’s safe to say that we are extremely grateful for the internet, social media and all things online.
Be it binge watching your favorite show, ordering food or meeting new people, we can all agree that the online world has its own set of advantages.
With Valentine’s Day around the corner, it’s only natural for us singles to get resentful towards all things romantic. But deep down, we all know that we would love to find our perfect match too.
Well, you’re in luck because that’s exactly what we’re here for. Keep reading and you’ll know how to create a nice dating profile that is sure to catch right swipes!
1. Copied Quotes
Most dating profiles have these fun questions that are sure to reveal more about your personality. Take your time, think about it and then answer the questions. The biggest mistake you can make here is copy a popular quote and paste it as it is. This indicates laziness and will not reveal as much about your true personality. The more personalized your answer is, the more chances you have of getting a right swipe.
2. Wearing Sunglasses In All The Photos
Your dating profile images are the most important part. They are meant to show off your personality and you can’t really do that with sunglasses on. Isn’t it weird talking to someone with sunglasses on in real life? It’s the same kind of weird when you can’t see someone’s eyes on their dating profile. Stay away from sunglasses, at least in few of the images. Trust us, it makes a huge difference.
3. Not Smiling In Any Photo
Another common faux pas is not smiling in any of your photos. It’s nice to have a few smouldering shots but smiling is just as important. It shows that you’re an approachable and friendly guy. This only makes it easy for someone to start a conversation with you. Just like eyes, a smile is very important if you’re trying to build a connection.
4. Political Views
It’s always wise to not discuss your political views when meeting someone new, be it a group setting or a one-on-one hangout. The same rule applies to online dating too. More so, people are on an online dating platform for romance, not controversial debates.
Don’t get us wrong, politics is an interesting topic of conversation, but it isn’t the first thing you should bring up. It can cause a lot of misleading judgements and a swipe left from a potentially good match. You can fill up space by talking about your hobbies instead, it works better.
5. Demanding Statements
Lastly, stay away from any statement that starts with “swipe left if..” or “don’t bother if…”. No matter what you say after these statements, it will always sound condescending and demanding. More so, these statements are mostly presumptuous in nature and make people feel judged. It can make you seem closed minded and judgmental. So stay away from being too demanding, in real life as well as on a dating platform.
