Tip 1 – Stick of brief BUT effective headline that creates a huge impact and very well relates to you. Headlines like – “Single and looking for YOU!” are acceptable, BUT they must be stomped. If you want your headline to have a lot of punching power, don’t stick to what is acceptable. For one thing, such headlines don’t tell anything about you, your personalities, and the activities you love engaging in. And think about it – people know that you are on a dating site because you are single and looking for a potential partner. Instead, look for something creative that would set you apart from the competition, headlines that will make someone curious enough to look twice.
Tip 2 – Your profile should very well tie in your headline. In your headline try asking some questions or leave open ended statements, and in your profile answer it. Let’s say your headline asks – “What’s New?” your profile, the first sentence of it, could say something like you have started college, everything changed for the better, found your own place, landed a nice paying job, so on and so forth. From there, you could post pictures, videos, etc. showing it.
Tip 3 – As mentioned earlier, you need to post pictures relating to what you are doing in your life. Emphasize the activities that you are interested in, your hobbies, interests, etc. that you want to have in common with a potential date through pictures and images. Are you someone who is into customizing cars, sports, night life, and everything else in between? Yeah? Then post pictures conveying those interests. Using seasonally applicable photographs is also of great importance. For example, if it’s summer, post pictures of what you do during summer. Use a picture that is clear and current as your primary photo. First impressions will make or break you, and getting the right photo will give you an edge over the competition.
Tip 4 – Jot down the activities you are currently in. Are you a member of the chess club, have you been in tournaments? Are you representing your college or university in different competitions? Say so and better yet, as told earlier, post pictures showing you engaging in those activities. Doing so will paint a better and clearer picture of how your time is spent. Here’s an even better suggestion – tell a couple of things and activities you would want to do with the person you met – sky diving, watching movies, going to different places, don’t be shy and state it.
Tip 5 – Instead of focusing on what you don’t want in a person and in a relationship, put emphasis on what you want. Statements like – “I hate gamers” “I hate party goers” and the like are to be avoided. Such statements are negative and the person reading on the other side of the World Wide Web will think that your life has a tendency of being surrounded with drama. And that is something they definitely want to avoid. Instead, say something like “I love people who are fun to be with, sensitive in a nice way, easy going, BUT responsible.” That has a much better chances of getting the responses that you desire.
Tip 6 – Your profile’s large paragraphs should be divided into shorter ones – ones that have no more than three sentences. As a college student, I’m pretty sure you often skim the reading and studying material for your next class because they are in large and long blocks of texts. Even though you need that material to fare well in the lesson later that day, you get bored with it, skip it, and your brain never processes it. You see, by using short paragraphs that highlight important topics and areas about your life, your readers will have a better time remembering what you just said.
