Are you ready to embark on the exciting journey of online dating? Whether you’re a seasoned pro or just dipping your toes into the digital dating pool, writing a dating profile that gets attention is an art. 

As a therapist and dating coach, I have a penchant for warmth, professionalism, competence, humor, empathy, and, of course, humor (because why not double up on the fun?). I’m here to help you navigate this process while infusing it with a touch of personal experience. 

With these tips, I’ll help you craft an irresistible online dating profile that gets you noticed.

Plus, we’ll sprinkle in some SEO magic to ensure your profile shines bright. Let’s dive in!

1.  Include Picture-Perfect Profile Pics:

First things first, let’s talk about those profile pictures. We all know a picture is worth a thousand words, so make yours count!

 Here’s what I recommend:

  • A professionally taken headshot to capture your best angles.
  • A body shot that showcases your confidence and style.
  • One picture doing what you’re passionate about because nothing’s more attractive than someone who loves what they do.

2. Craft a Catchy Intro:

Now, let’s move on to your introduction. Instead of listing your interests, captivate your potential matches with a vivid experience. 

Share a story that reflects your personality and passions. For instance, if you’re a nature enthusiast, don’t just say you love hiking – paint a picture of a breathtaking mountain hike that left you in awe.

3. Be Specific About Your Desires:

Don’t be afraid to ask for what you want in a partner and a relationship. Be clear about your intentions. 

Whether you’re looking for romance, love, or a long-term relationship (LTR), put it out there. This helps potential matches understand your goals and align with your desires.

4. Proofread to Perfection:

It might sound simple, but it’s crucial – proofread your profile to ensure it’s free from grammar and spelling mistakes. 

A well-crafted profile exudes professionalism and competence, and typos can be a turn-off.

5. Tell an anecdote

Instead of simply listing your interests, share an engaging anecdote about one of your passions when writing a dating profile.

If you’re an avid scuba diver, recount the most thrilling experience from your best scuba diving trip. If you’re passionate about cooking, share the story behind preparing your favorite dish and what makes it so special to you. 

This will also help you match with people who share your interests.

If you still need help writing a dating profile, I’ve got you covered! As a licensed therapist and dating coach, I help people just like you find love every day.
