Though you probably already know some tips on how to make your profile more attractive and get more responds, it’s sometimes good to review the most useful tips on what you should do to attract the right person online and what you shouldn’t do. Well, the best way is to keep your profile updated, log in regularly and quickly respond to messages.
Besides this, here are some more interesting DOs and DON’Ts which will be helpful to you:
DO: Ask a friend or two to view your profile on a dating site and give you suggestions. Listen attentively to their comments, because they want to make you happy and can give you some valuable tips on what to improve.
DO: If possible, try to find a single friend who will go in for online dating with you. It’s much more fun to share your experience with each other and inspire to go on a date.
DO: Refresh your photo on regularly. Like on Facebook, your photos should look new, unusual and it would be better if you were photographed when doing something interesting, not just posing. Also, try to have different variants of photos, including a full body shot.
DO: Pick a profile name that expresses the real you. Instead of writing something boring and common like “Sexy Girl” use a more unique name that will be associated with you.
And at last one important DON’T.
DON’T: Be intimidating. If you demand a response when sending a message to someone, you’re less likely to get one. Also, if you write in your profile something like “no cheaters”, it possesses the wrong message (that you’re still thinking of your previous relationship). Be light, flirt with other users – it’s perfectly fine, and just communicate and discuss your interests. And leave your previous relationship behind.
Now, if we speak about your self-description in a profile, try to be imaginative and stand out of the crowd. Write it as if you’re writing to a person you already know and be genuine. If you don’t like cats – write it down, let other people on the site know what you like and what you don’t like. Try to show your personality, don’t think that writing just about who you’re looking for and what you do for a living is enough. There are a lot of people who write the same things, so don’t be one of them.
Even if you actually think you have low self-esteem, try to pay more attention to your advantages, to your unique traits of character and write about your hobbies and life values. You’ll not be able to conceal everything but let only those who’re really interested in you find out more about who you really are.
Raising your confidence and self-esteem is not easy but it can be done. Concentrate on the positive things and try to improve in life. Looking interesting and attractive to the opposite sex will boost your self-esteem and is going to make you a more successful person in life.
You probably know that confidence and self-esteem are essential in the world of dating. Confidence is usually common to your first dates and first phone calls, but it’s also valuable while you’re just browsing profiles and writing about yourself. Self-esteem and confidence can make your profile look more attractive and thus increase your chances of a future first date.
Lack of self-esteem can become your nightmare because it concerns every aspect of life. As for online dating, the first thing people usually view is not what you wrote about yourself but your photo. If it was taken when you were in a bad mood or when you felt awkward and uncomfortable, even though you might think it’s actually good, other people will be able to find out what you actually felt. It’s easy to notice when your smile is not genuine or when you feel at ease. So, try to take pictures on a day you feel good, inspired and comfortable. This is will provide a much better result.
