Not Just Your Attic
Like your home, your online dating profile could more than likely use a spring cleaning, especially if it has remained the same all winter. The term shopworn also applies to online dating profiles, because they begin to look tattered and picked over if they haven’t been changed or updated in a while. Online daters automatically skip past profiles they’ve already looked at.
I suggest online daters freshen up their profiles to reflect changes in their lives, timely activity interests, or just to make them sparkle like new again. More recent interests might include exercise activities you’ve become interested in like hiking, tennis, or golf, but be certain to express them as interests you’d like to share with someone special. Remember to make your interests inclusive by mentioning how much you’d enjoying sharing them with someone special.
Or perhaps you’ve subscribed to a theater or a concert series this spring and you have an extra ticket you’d like to share? Maybe there’s a lecture series about art or science you’d enjoy having a date accompany you? Be specific regarding your subscriptions and be open to sharing tickets in terms of taking a date as a guest. Instead of asking to be reimbursed let your date offer to take you to dinner instead.
A Complete Rewrite
Don’t simply add a few new items to your profile. Take time to rewrite the entire profile to attract the men or women who have been skipping past you. People frequently miss the best potential partners and once they pass your profile they’ll continue ignoring it.
