It’s the same on POF: Now we’re not going to make any snarky comment about these headlines (but seriously, they’re awful, don’t use them).We just want you to see where they are and what they look like.For women, they should include things like yoga, acting, and fashion.If you look at these terms carefully, you’ll see the theme is they evoke an attractive picture in the mind’s eye of the reader.If everyday experience hasn't convinced you of this, there's research that will. Writing an online dating profile comes with easy and hard steps. This may seem obvious, but a recent study posted on e Harmony, which analyzed 12,000 online dating profiles, confirmed that both men and women chose “funny” as a characteristic they are looking for in a partner, ranking it sixth out of a list of 10 enticing words. Got some Pablo Neruda quotes you’ve been keeping on your intentions board? That same e Harmony study also revealed that you should describe the kind of person you are, but only using certain “attractive” words.If you’re not totally boring (and we’re guessing you aren’t), you want something more interesting than just some variant of “hello,” but you aren’t sure how to distill your entire personality into one phrase or sentence.
Zig Ziglar Good-looking individuals are treated better than homely ones in virtually every social situation, from dating to trial by jury. They'll pick eye color and hair color, all the way down to what she does for a living, what school she went to. But at the end of the day, dating is dating, because they're human beings.The #1 mistake that people make when making their profile is that they write the EXACT SAME things that everyone else does!90% of profiles feature the same cliche phrases like: "I'm a hard-working guy who is looking for a nice girl." "I enjoy hanging out with my friends." "I'm an easy-going, fun person." DON’T DO THIS!Easy might include filling out your height, while hard might include coming up with a good dating profile headline. If you can be funny, it’s universally acknowledged as a good idea. Looks like women should use words like sweet, optimistic, and thoughtful, while men should use words like passionate, spontaneous, and perceptive. A study of 1.2 million profiles by Plenty of Fish showed women who got into a relationship online used the word “relationship” 16 percent more than women who were still single. Why not be honest and speak from that place in your heart? If they don’t and it’s still funny, you look like you’re funny and original. Apparently people who talk about relationships and love find relationships and love.
