Online Dating Profile Examples
Hmm, as a woman new to the world of online dating, there were two things I knew I wanted to get right. My picture for my online dating profile, and my profile. Naturally, I scanned the web for good examples of a dating profile, but I ended up on a number of personal websites, and none of them had the profile examples I was looking for.
After some research, I discovered the perfect formula… what to do, and what not to do on your online profile. Here are some examples of dating profiles that got it right, and some that got it wrong.
Some who got it definitely wrong?
#1 in My Online Dating Profile Examples: I’m in a relationship but I’m looking for something new and exciting. Seeing what’s out there where I can have a passionate relationship. To me, it’s all about the passion and when there is passion, everything else falls in line. I hope it doesn’t bother you that I am attached. I like all kinds of music except rap. I’ve lived in Vegas for almost 4 yrs and really enjoy it out here. I do have pics I can send you once we make contact.
First of all, pull your head out of your ass. Saying you’re attached doesn’t make you come off as any better than if you hadn’t said anything at all. Thinking the “well at least I was honest” approach is going to get you anywhere is just plain cocky (and completely delusional). The vast majority of people in a relationship who are actively looking for something better have one major red flag: extremely low self confidence. Not having the nerve to break it off with someone you clearly are unhappy with signifies an impressive fear of being alone.
#2 in My Online Dating Profile Examples: It’s really not a lot to say about me but I love to laugh and have fun. I think I probably talk too much once you get to know me but at first I might be a little quiet. I like to go clubbing because that is the only thing to do in Vegas. I don’t really have any hobbies at the current time.
Here’s an example of honesty is the best policy, I just wish they would’ve followed it up with a little bit more information. It seems like they are new to Las Vegas, their sample profile for dating also says they have no hobbies at the moment. Surely, even if you are new to a city, you have hobbies. What did you used to do in the town you lived before?
And then there’s this:
#3 in My Online Dating Profile Examples: just looking for some nsa fun hit me up if you interested so now you know what im looking for what about you blaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
What the F*#k is that?
A couple good ones?
#4 in My Online Dating Profile Examples: Hey there im just looking for a bit of fun while im young. I love to surf and snowboard and play my violin. I play other instruments, but that is my favorite. I love relaxing and watching movies just as much as going out on the town with a group of friends. Although im in the military right now, im going to college for my teaching degree. I love to box and play football. My two favorite sports. I love all sorts of music and can listen to anything as long as it fits my mood. I hope you’re interested and send me a message sometime. …)
Nice. He has interests that set him apart (plays the violin, but is also athletic…sexy), has an idea of where he wants to go in life (military now, perhaps teaching later) and mentions nothing about sex. This is a decent one out of many horrible profile examples for dating.
#5 in My Online Dating Profile Examples for Men: I would describe myself as an eternal optimist, who loves to laugh and spend time with the people who are important to me. My family and friends would probably describe me as kind and loyal with a good sense of humor. I tend to be the kind of person people feel comfortable talking to and confiding in (I will admit, I am a talker…but I’m a good listener too!)…. I try not to take life too seriously and also tend to be pretty sarcastic – and yes, I can take it as well as I can give it out!
Another decent profile. He tries his best to describe his personality, and his “happy go-lucky” personality seems to show through the profile. And once again, there is no mention of anything even remotely sexual.
Here’s a great post on how to write a dating profile of your own.
