7 Ways to Make Your Online Dating Profile Irresistible


Once viewed as a resource that only the desperate would use, online dating sites have become widely accepted as way to seek out suitable partners.

There is much to recommend them; for example, these services are becoming increasingly sophisticated when it comes to accurately providing users with compatible matches, and using dating sites removes the ambiguity from your interactions with attractive women (as there is a mutually acknowledged desire to find a partner).

However, with hundreds of thousands of men vying for attention on dating sites, how do you make your profile seem particularly attractive? Keep the following seven tips in mind.

1) Employ the right strategy when it comes to choosing photos

Unsurprisingly, various studies of online dating practice suggest that users with images attached to their profiles are much more likely to receive messages on dating sites, so you will definitely want to add at least one picture. The tough part is choosing images.

  • Select photos that flatter your appearance, but make sure they do give an accurate impression. After all, you may receive more interest if you use a photograph taken when you were in your early twenties and weighed twenty pounds less, but this type of dishonesty could result in your date feeling both misled and short-changed when she meets you in person.
  • Use your photographs to communicate some of your best personality traits and to illustrate that you have a range of hobbies and interests. For example, in addition to uploading a particularly flattering image, you can indicate that you’re a social person by using a picture of yourself with friends, and show off your talents with an image of doing something like playing piano or going skiing.
  • Avoid photos that make you look vain or self-obsessed (such as topless images or photographs where you’re wearing only your boxers and trying to look like an underwear model).
