Mistake #1: You Don't Self-Promote You might be hesitant to really play up your assets because you worry it will make you seem cocky or self-involved.But leaving out interesting info, like how you're awesome at snowboarding or speak two languages, results in a lackluster first impression.You went online because there's a huge pool of guys to date, and hooking one is supposed to be easy. According to Internet dating experts, many women are guilty of making these five mistakes online.So how come you're only meeting losers, or worse, not getting any attention at all? With a few tweaks and maybe a little white lie or two, your inbox will soon be stuffed with messages from guys dying to meet you.Plus, guys have learned to dismiss those generic descriptions since they've been on dates with women who describe themselves the same way but are total duds in person. So instead of writing that you're adventurous, make him really believe it by including a story about that time you took a spontaneous trip to the beach with girlfriends and swam with dolphins.Not only does this approach make you seem a hell of a lot more interesting, but it also gives guys an easy icebreaker.
Here are five crucial themes you need to address in order to create a compelling online dating profile.
Roughly 90% of women’s profiles stress that they’re seeking adventure, and for good reason.
No man wants a boring woman, and nothing demonstrates that you’re exciting and compelling as effectively as repeatedly mentioning how adventurous you are.
If you actually have traveled, be sure your profile includes at least one shot from every place you have ever visited.
If you haven’t traveled, try misdirection: talk about how you love to travel.
To stand out in the online crowd you need a profile that is unique and compelling – turn the ordinary into extraordinary.
And no, I don’t mean listing naked bungee jumping or trekking across the Himalayas as your usual weekend activities.
It doesn’t matter what you mean by the term, either.
Whether your idea of adventure is hunting kodiaks with brass knucks or taking the scenic route to Whole Foods, the details are irrelevant. Research demonstrates that “travel” is used only slightly less often than “adventure,” and again, the reason is simple: there’s no place men would rather be than someplace else.
For example, “my profiterole chocolate tower is always a hit” sounds far more enticing than “I like cooking”.
Or, “I’m adventurous” doesn’t tell me anything, however by writing “I’m taking flying lessons” you’ve got my attention.
