Write a good dating website bio
If you’re boldly going forth with your profile on your own, allow me, the professional ghostwriter, to impart some tried-and-true techniques. (Hint: The one-liners discussed above often have a place in these profiles too — and the photo advice stands as well.) On dates Go into each with an open mind, but know when it’s time to get out.
On apps that don’t require much writing Don’t try to summarize yourself in something the length of a tweet or two. Use something that you’re actually interested in and turn it into a tweet length, one-liner, or quick story — think upbeat or even funny. Don’t have expectations, put your phone away, and don’t hype dates to the point of nervousness.
Mentioning cats is fine, but mention “my cats” and you’re a weirdo.
That goal alone, though, can be paralyzing, giving even writers writers’ block and above all making the majority of profiles…let’s just say lacking the personality they so desperately need.
And if you’re not getting the response you want, it’s silly to look outward and avoid looking at the quality of your own page — because a better profile yields better results.
You’ve got your sweatpants on, ordered enough Thai for two but only for one, and there’s a bottle of open booze somewhere in the room — you must be single on Valentine’s Day. And I’m probably doing the exact same thing, with one big difference: instead of crying my way through…er, I mean dry-eyed watching a cheesy romcom, I’ve got my computer open, and I’m working overtime.
Such is the life of an online dating profile ghostwriter.
Don’t fall in love with someone based on their profile.
