Online dating, while useful, can also be a tricky thing if not managed properly. While it exposes you to a lot of great potential matches, it also introduces you to the weirdos. So how do you find the Prince Charming while avoiding the creepers? Let’s take a look at a few ways you can maximize your online dating profile to do just that.
Don’t Come Off as Being Stuck-Up
If you’re going to draw anyone in, the key is to be approachable. Guys, unlike girls, don’t usually fall for the A-hole routine. Guys are lazier, so if you’re acting like a female dog to them, they’ll think you’re not interested and move on. Nice guys might finish last, but nice girls will usually do better than the stuck-up ones. On your profile, try to be open and friendly while keeping the negativity low. Another tip is to share one of your most embarrassing experiences, which can help to show others that you’re a bit more down-to-Earth.
Post Flattering Photos of Yourself (That Look Somewhat Natural)
As a woman, looking at the gazillion photos of duck-faced, push-up bra wearing, and spray tanned girls on the internet may lead you to think those are the elements that constitute a flattering photo. Do not fall into that trap. Yes, while there are definitely a lot of guys who are into that look, they are probably not the type of matches you’re looking for. Because if you are, all you have to do is go to your local club and you’ll find dozens of them ready to grind with you from behind without asking. But odds are you’re looking for something a little deeper than that if you’re trying online dating, so a good idea would be to post photos of yourself looking like a normal human being.
Put Out a Vibe that You Want Coming Back to You
As discussed in the previous tip, you get back what you put out there. So if you’re just looking for some no strings attached fun, then by all means get some promiscuous language in your profile. But if you’re looking for something more stable and deep, then let people get a glimpse of the genuine you.
Online dating isn’t that complicated; you get back what you put out there. If you’re honest with people, then they will be honest with you in return. So with that and the above tips in mind, go out there and mingle!
