2. Post at least two current photos: Photos significantly increase responses! Try at least one close-up and one full-body shot for the best results.

3. Use a positive tone: Attract positive energy by writing positive essays: I love to learn and meet new people. Life is an adventure and I would like to share it with someone special.

4. Keep it simple: Keep your descriptions light and avoid demanding checklists in your essays. Talk about movies or hobbies versus sharing your life story.

5. Write short essays versus a book: Try using 3-5 sentences for essays and save the details for later. You want to get past a first date before you share any dirt.

6. Add a little humor: Show your sense of humor in the essays: I can laugh at my mistakes. Are you a Letterman or Leno fan?

7. Include a fun hobby note: Give connectors by sharing specific hobbies: I need someone to distract me from the piano. I love to travel and go wild taking photographs.

8. Add your marketing pitch: What makes you unique? Try listing three things and make them catchy (everyone is smart, outgoing, and fun – how are you different?). If you love to take photos, what has been your best shot?

9. Show interest in the other party: Ask inviting questions to encourage a discussion. You might say, Enough about me…tell me more about you.

10. Be confident versus boastful: When you show confidence in being you, it is the biggest turn-on. The trick is not to be boastful in your delivery.

Using these ten winning profile tips, you can significantly increase your numbers, ego and odds of finding a perfect match.

  1. Thanks for the nice tip on how to create profile. Alot of people dont believe in online dating or find partners online, because they will not tell you the truth. There is lot of way you can find out, if the self you meet online is telling you the truth or not. You can discover lot of things from the person when you are chat online and find mails you exchange too.
