There. See how simple that was?
This is how profiles work. Or would — if we all were so perfect. The rest
of us need just a little help. If you're struggling to create a new
free profile or reinvent your old one, consider our 12 hot tips to make
your profile sizzle:
- Be upbeat
From the headline to the last sentence, make
sure you sound like someone who would be fun to know. Let us know from the
beginning how lucky we are to have found you!
- Be positive
Avoid negative statements when you present your
qualities and those you seek in a match. Talk about your likes rather than
- Excite us
Don't just spell out a laundry list of your interests.
Tell us what grabs you and why.
- Be revealing
The values that matter most to you probably are
most important to your soul mate, too. Put them out there so the two of you
will recognize each other right away.
- Be honest
Current photos; accurate descriptions of your height,
body type, smoking and drinking habits and marital status will attract
someone to the real you — not a fantasy you can't deliver.
- Be realistic
Need to drop ten pounds? Be open to dating someone who
does, too. Remember the story about the king who searched the world for the
perfect woman only to be rejected by her. She was looking for the perfect
- Be kind
Remember, there's no telling who will come along to
steal your heart. A welcoming profile that makes you seem accessible and
open to the unexpected could open up a world of new contacts to you —
including the one contact you've been waiting for.
- Make us laugh
Your profile isn't a stand-up comedy routine.
But if you can get a laugh, or at least a smile, out of those who read it,
you're likely to get an email, too.
- Generate some heat
Sure, it's a little early to reveal your every
fantasy. But by showing your humor, your romantic side and your personal
warmth, you can be sexy on-screen.
- Go for quality
Your qualities, that is. As opposed to
your possessions. That'll increase your odds of finding someone who
appreciates a good listener, a kind heart and knockout kisses. Or do you
prefer someone who most appreciates you for your salary and stash of
frequent flier miles?
- Be an individual
Nobody — seriously, nobody — will read your
profile and say, "Finally! Someone else who likes walks on the beach and is
comfortable in jeans or evening wear!"
- Post a photo
Yeah, yeah. We're all shallow. Get over it —
people like to connect a face with the words. That's why Match.com profiles
with photos get 15 times more responses than those without one. Adding a new
photo moves you up higher in search results, too. And make it a
well-focused, close-up shot so that smile and those eyes don't escape
free profile today, then
quick search for quality singles near you and tell them to take a look!
