What does your dating profile say about you?
The internet dating profile is a unique literacy form; somewhere between an anonymous love letter and a CV, it is designed to cast it’s romantic (cyber) net as wide as possible.
But a good profile is difficult to write and by nature, people are often uncomfortable talking about themselves.
As a result, the majority of dating profiles are a collection of clichés, text-speak, and exclamation marks. Sites are full of “genuine, easy-going” people, who “love laughing” (does anybody actually hate it?) and “enjoy evenings out and evenings in”.
Everybody has something fascinating to say about themselves, yet somehow 90 per cent of all dating profiles read almost identical.
In a medium like online dating where the most desirable men and women have unlimited options, your dating profile needs to standout from the crowd, demand attention and encourage matches to message you.
