An online dating profile doesn’t have to be long and very detailed to be interesting or even captivating. Here is an example of discrete parts of women’s actual dating profiles from a major, free dating site:
The first profile is not necessarily terrible, but it is so boring and cliche, because every other profile pretty much says what this one says:
“I am an easy going person who doesn’t take life too seriously. I believe in the work/life balance and don’t want my work to define the person that I am. I love experiencing new things and will try almost anything once.Traveling is my passion and I just returned from a trip to Sri Lanka, Maldives, India, Nepal and Costa Rica. I volunteered for Habit for Humanity in Sri Lanka helping build homes for families in need. I love giving back in anyway I can and feel very fortunate to have the life I do.”
Here is a much better profile, because it’s actually unique and interesting:
“I dream in color, I have a penchant for the absurd, and as a New Yawka I keep it real. I’m part mermaid and happiest in water, whether I’m swimming, scuba diving, soaking in hot springs or taking a long shower. My nature is generous, sensitive, sometimes sassy but always sweet. You should message me if You want to old school romantic court me and make me feel like a girl. You’re doing what you want to do when you grow up. You want to leave the world a better place.”
