Among all the other issues that you can possibly face while online dating, one of the biggest ones would have to be: “How to write a perfect online dating profile”. In fact, there are a million and one tutorials online on how to do it the right way but, sad to say, nobody ever bothers to apply what they’ve learned into their dating profile. You’ll still see a dime a dozen profiles that are uninteresting and lacking luster to put it nicely.
This post is also one of the many online tutorials on how to improve your online dating profile but instead of sounding like a broken record, we will tell you exactly what you need to put in your profile to get noticed:
1. A list of music genres you listen to.
Each of us has different taste in music. You could be listening to rock, indie, country or hip hop. It doesn’t matter. Include it in your profile. You’ll attract people who have the same taste in music as you. Don’t worry if you don’t have a variety of music genres that you appreciate. One alternative could be a list of your top 10 favorite songs of all time. You should probably have a minimum of 5 even if you’re not that much of a music lover.
2. A list of books that you’ve read or want to read.
Another suggestion is to put a list of books that you’ve read or want to read. Everyone enjoys a good book every once in a while so why not share your list with the people who pass by your profile? Who knows, you could get messages from people who are fans of the same book and just from your list, you’ll already have a lot of things to chat about with your European date.
3. Post your bucket list.
A bucket list is a list of activities that you would like to do before you “kick the bucket”. We also consider this one a real conversation starter, all the more when you also include the things that you’ve already crossed off. Let’s say that one item on your bucket list is to go bungee jumping naked in Switzerland; you’ve crossed that off while you were vacationing in Europe last summer. If that doesn’t catch people’s attention, we’re not sure what will.
There are loads of conversation starters that you can put on your profile but let’s start with the basics. Not a lot of people have these kinds of lists on their dating profile so you’ll definitely stand out from the crowd. The idea is to post something interesting so it’s easier for people to approach you – they’ll feel comfortable about saying “hi” and then asking you about what you put in your profile.
