How to write dating ad
We’ve asked David Miller from disability dating site Disability uk to explain how to write the ultimate online dating profile.
Writing a dating profile is a task that many singletons face when they venture into the world of online dating.
I spend lots of time in this column and over at A(n)nals of Online Dating documenting the worst of the worst internet daters. But there are also some really good ones — and some mediocre ones that could be so much better if not for rookie mistakes.
So, welcome to Internet Dating Bootcamp, where I'll teach you how to trick unsuspecting users into thinking you’re actually cool and normal. You need to be you in your online dating profile, but the process of creating one is a good time to think about what kindergarten teachers call “being your best self at school.” If you’re attracted to Type-A go-getter types who get up at 6am to exercise, emphasize your similar love of hard work. Want someone who shares your taste for obscure French films? No, not everyone wants to date a carbon copy of themselves, but most of us want to be with someone with some overlapping interests.
Here’s an example that really works:“I am a rocket scientist. And after mastering Italian, I became an international super spy. But I do like a good martini and I got a B in my 5th grade science class. Bumble mainly attracts women in the 25-35 age range who are intelligent and successful.
Right now, I’m yachting my way across the Caribbean, stealing top-secret information, and sipping martinis… Message me for more straight talk, and I’ll send you FB links, photos of science fair trophies, and much MUCH more…”Surfer. It’s been marketed as a “woman-friendly” alternative to Tinder, so you definitely want to keep your profile classy to be successful on this app.
Wait till you are in a better mental space before you write your profile.
Your despondency will color your profile and you don’t want to be the wallflower or droopy dude at the online party.
So select photos that look good, but could also in some universe be reasonably understood to be you.
Relatedly: Select photos where you can actually see what you look like.
Online dating is becoming increasingly popular and more and more people are logging on in the hope of finding The One.
But with such a lot of fish in the sea, how can you make your profile stand out from the crowd?
