Death by Adjectives in Your Online Dating Profile


It is unfortunate that so many people join dating sites but so few put a fair effort into writing a really good profile that makes them stand out from thousands of other users. I am not sure why people go through the trouble of signing up and filling all those questionnaires and then post a profile that looks like a copy of any other neutral, boring, profile full of cliches and types. What makes any female dating profile great is the fact that it stands out from the rest of the profiles on any given online dating site. It doesn t blend in. It s not generic, neutral and overly politically correct. It doesn t describe you with overused adjectives such as intelligent, compassionate, educated, and independent and it is free of boring statements that say nothing such as I am as comfortable staying in as staying out. Rather than continue describing what a good profile is, I want to bring to your attention real examples of three actual dating profiles from on popular site that I rated for content. I commented in parentheses throughout the profiles below what I thought of them and why:

The Best And Worst Words To Use In Your Online Dating

I gave this profile a passing grade because while it s not great, nothing about it makes it terrible. This profile gets a higher grade because it reflects on the writer s character and her personality. It s a bit negative and has a few red flags but other than that it s not bad! Tired of meeting BOYS who tell me what I want to hear, make and break promises, and aren t ready for something serious. (This woman is voicing her opinion and shows her personality early on.

(Great move! ))This is one great dating profile. It consists a number of thought provoking statements right from the beginning that show a woman s great personality and sense of humor. It s eloquently written, it s concise, straight and to the point! It is free of fluff and very compelling for a guy who can appreciate this type of no-nonsense attitude in a person:

I don t like most guys, but I am not interested in most guys and besides perhaps that what makes those few unique individuals that I do connect with all more special. (Great, thought provoking opener that shows a woman s engaging personality. Myself restless, analytical, and opinionated. I am not offended by a dirty joke and can dish out one of my own. I am independent but far from being a feminist.

Sarcasm is a spice of life, so bring it on. (Guys really, really like to hear that). Timeless books and movies that make you wonder for days about whose side you are on put great flavor into many of my evenings. What s your story? What are you greatest pet-peeves and what makes you weak in your knees from joy and happiness.

This last profile below gets the highest great for both the content and the creativity. It almost sounds like a poem. What I particularly like about this profile is that it shows that a woman hasn t lost faith in true love and romance but at the same time she is also realistic. The ending of it might sound a bit on a more desperate side, but all in all maybe it s not such a terrible thing to sound a bit desperate for love and connection if that s how you really feel. Use the above profiles as an inspiration for your own dating profile to make it more creative and more interesting.

Remember, quality single guys that you are looking to meet are more picky than others. Many of them are looking for a special connection with a special woman.
