Do you need help writing a dating profile? If so, you are not the only one! Many people find it difficult to write their dating profile, especially if it is the first one.

Here are 3 essential tips to give you some help with creating that important dating profile.

1. Be Positive!

You may already know that in general, the majority of people are attracted to people who are positive, optimistic, happy and confident people. For this reason it is sooo important to keep your profile positive and upbeat (even if you are having a bad day today!). Make sure that you include your best characteristics and you may also want to inclde a little bit about your dreams and ambitions.

Even if you feel that you are not really a positive person, make an effort to be positive while still staying truthful. You don’t have to tell people your whole history in your profile. Your profile is definitely not the place to mention your depression, drinking problem, ex boyfriend and so on! You can do that later when you meet the person – and even then, save it for the third or fourth date, unless the person asks.

If you are feeling a bit low and you feel that you don’t have lots of positive qualities, don’t make them up, instead go and ask a friend or family member what they think your best qualities are, and simply write down what they say. This will work better if you tell them you are thinking of joining an online dating site. However, if you are worried that they will immediately roll on the floor laughing, you don’t have to tell them.

Most importantly, remember that anything positive could be an attractive quality, but it should be very specific as well. For example, if your sister says you have a great sense of humour, ask them if they can think of an example that you can use in your profile. Giving examples will show rather than tell your qualities and this can be a lot more genuine and convincing.

2. Write your Profile Now, Not Later

The majority of people enter as little as possible when they initially create their profile on a dating site. This is only natural because the first thing you want to do when you join is to check out whether the site has any talent in your area! You probably say to yourself that you will come back later and improve on it.

However, skipping the profile step at this point is a huge mistake because many dating sites have a way for members to see who has just signed up. This is the time when you will probably get the most contacts!

So if you just quickly upload a photo and one or two sentences at this point (or worse, if you don’t actually upload your photo) then you are wasting a huge opportunity to make a great first impression on some of the most active members on the site. Your profile will not be visible on the new members list for a long time, so make the most of your time in the spotlight by writing a great profile when you first sign up.

3. Tell Them How To Contact You

Finally, don’t be afraid to ask questions in your profile. For example, if you enjoy travel, ask the person looking at your profile to tell you about the best holiday they have ever beenon. If you like films ask them what their movie is. This will make it a lot easier for them to write that first message to you, so they are a lot more likely to do it.

Hopefully this has given you a little inspiration and help writing a dating profile. So what are you waiting for?
