In the previous section, we showed you how to select great photos for your profile.
90% of profiles feature the same cliche phrases like: "I'm a hard-working guy who is looking for a nice girl." "I enjoy hanging out with my friends." "I'm an easy-going, fun person." DON’T DO THIS!
Although there's nothing inherently wrong with these sentences, you should avoid using them if possible, since so many other people have them on their profile.
Phrases like this don't help you stand out and can be BORING to read after having seen them so many times.
The good thing is, if you write a unique profile you'll immediately set yourself apart from others on the site and gain an advantage. We'll get into more detail about how to do this in the sections below.
2) Make a Unique Headline Oftentimes, dating sites like Po F, Ok Cupid or Match will have space for a short headline.
This is an important space, because it shows up in searches beside your photo and can be used to catch someone's attention.
Most people don't put much thought into their headline and will write things like "looking for love" or "nice guy looking for a nice girl"… It will only make your profile blend in with everyone else's and could even convey desperation or a boring personality.
Instead, go with something unique that either creates intrigue or makes someone laugh.
Maybe a movie quote, a pick up line or joke referring to one of your hobbies.
Also, writing about trivial things is sometimes effective (if done correctly), because it demonstrates a sense of humor and a non-desperate attitude.
For example, we've had great success using headlines like "I can count to 10 with my eyes closed." We've received messages from women who say stuff like "Hahaha that's impressive, I like a man who is good with numbers!
