The Thoughtful Romantic The one thing I am most passionate about: taking care of others, helping people, and making people smile.
Most of us online date—but many of us don’t know how to market ourselves.
After a while, all the profiles sound the same, full of similar clichés and adjectives.
Like a recipe for a great dish, it’s about having a combination of ingredients working in your favour: a couple of well-lit, authentic pictures of yourself, combined with a pinch of wit, a decent helping of honesty, and generous servings of thoughtfulness, individuality, and attention to detail.
In this article, we’re going to introduce you to a few different dating profiles that each contain varying quantities of the above elements.
Here are the top things I learned when working with people on theirs—that will work for you, too. But the e-Cyrano method would have you choose the best, most concise example of one time you were funny with an ex and put it into present tense: “When you have a bad day, I’ll dress like Homer (your favorite Simpsons character) and do impressions of him until you feel better.” 3) Write 200 words or less.
One engaging paragraph is far better than endless run-on sentences.It is unfortunate that so many people join dating sites but so few put a fair effort into writing a really good profile that makes them stand out from thousands of other users.I am not sure why people go through the trouble of signing up and filling all those questionnaires and then post a profile that looks like a copy of any other neutral, boring, profile full of cliches and types.The end result would be a profile that read like a good article or book jacket instead of a dating ad, and when someone reached the end of it, they’d want to read more and contact the person.As e-Cyrano’s founder, Evan Marc Katz, likes to say, “It’s simply our job to capture you, like a cameraman taking a photo.” So, why not revamp online dating profile? Then, figure out and write down what’s 2) Like with any writing, “show don’t tell,” and the more specific, the better. Evan is a big believer in “redefining the adjective.” Meaning, if you think you’re “funny” and state that you’re killing it in your stand-up comedy class, you write the funniest messages in birthday cards and you make everyone at work laugh, that’s OK.Almost every dating site lets you create a dating profile for free, (even lets you browse profiles for free), so make use of it.
