Relationship and Dating Advice for Finding Love Online

Online Dating Profile Tips

There are so many people looking to find dates online that sometimes the competition is intense. The best thing to do to find a match is to be honest with your online profile because you may meet an interested person and they will eventually find out the truth. This is especially the case when posting false photos. The more specific you are in what you are looking for the easier it will be to find a match. When building your profile here are some tips you can follow to improve the profile you have.

* Don't be negative - If you see a profile where people are negative and complaining do you respond to it? Not usually. You should always be upbeat and positive with the profile you have. If you talk in a negative way it can be a turnoff to others. If there are things you dislike or hate do not word it that way but instead put what you do like. You may meet someone and find out they do something that you dislike but you can find that out when chatting or by e-mail. Always be positive with your profile and never use the words "hate" or "major turn off."

* Don't be too general - This is a typical problem with many profiles on online dating services. People can put "I like to have fun" or "I am looking for someone who is going to make me laugh." These are just two examples, but really, what person does not want these things? Be specific in what you are looking for. Use words and phrases that describe you and what you like, but do not be general. Also, general profiles are boring, and therefore not attractive, because they use wording like many other profiles. Make your profile stand out by being specific and using exciting wording on the person you are and the person you are looking for.

* Filter out people you are not looking for - If you have an online profile it is not the goal to only get responses, but to get responses from people that will be a good match for you. In your profile tell what you are looking for in people, and much like the above tip, do not be general. In a positive way state the type of person you are looking for not the type of person you are not looking for. Be specific when it comes to age, likes, wants, and appearance. It will only make it easier to get a response from someone who will be a match for you. When filtering out people do not use "I am not looking for" but "I am looking for" instead, as positive wording is much more attractive.
