Tips to create a great Dating Profile

How should you start – Guideline

It is always a bit hard to start writing your dating profile. What should you put? What shouldn’t you? What’s the best tone to use? I am being too much?

Generally speaking, it is always recommended to use some humor. Humor when dating is a great way to break the ice, to show some confidence but also to give a little glimpse of who you are.

It is also good to put some “romance” in your dating profile, whatever that really means for you. You don’t want to sound too cheesy but either too desperate. In the end, just try to think of what kind of romance you’re really looking for and you’ll have the perfect tone!

Some dating profiles are filled with clichés (and some lies). It is completely counterproductive unless you want to start a relationship based on…clichés and lies?

Avoid them!

# Step 1 – How to write a great biography

What’s the biography of your dating profile?

A snapshot of yourself. As simple as that!

You can tell other singles about the little things you like to do, or what you tend to avoid, your main characteristics, etc.

You get the idea!

Try not to write an exhaustive list as other users might lose interest pretty quickly! Instead, focus on 3 to 4 adjectives to describe yourself and don’t forget to also explain the character traits of your ideal partner?

Are you looking for somebody fun? Somebody serious? An adventurer?


# Step 2 – Choose a good profile picture

Every dating site will state their specific guidelines when it comes to uploading a profile picture. However, you should note that if you don’t add a picture, you won’t get much attention, as you won’t add any value to your profile and it might even not look trustworthy to other users.

Generally speaking, good practices when it comes to choosing a great profile picture are the following:

  • eye contact
  • Show a picture where you are being active and/or adventurous
  • A picture that shows a bit about your personality


# Step 3 – Stay positive and be honest

To sum up, your dating profile should be giving a little glimpse to other users about who you are but also about your attitude towards life (and love!!)

That is why the secret to finding a match is honesty. 

Try to always stay positive and be true to who you are.

Cynism, pessimism and bitterness have never been attractive!
