Second Chance to Make a First Impression

Looking to spruce up your online profile to catch a new set of potential suitors? Feeling that a good shake up of your online self could be just what the doctor ordered to get you more dates? Below are some tips to updating your online profile so that it is more eye (and date!) catching.

Exude Confidence

Confidence is sexy. If your profile screams that you are a confident person, then you are sure to get attention on your online profile. Consider taking some professional photos that show you in a very confident light. Be sure to highlight things about yourself on your profile that show you are proud of yourself, your career, and your accomplishments.

Won an award lately? include that on your profile. Been voted “cutest,” “prettiest,” or “funniest” by your high school or college class? Include that, even if it was a decade ago! Showing that you are confident can be very attractive to the opposite sex.

Write A New Bio

Drafting a new bio that has a funny or sarcastic twist can benefit you and your love life in ways you never expected. Add some self deprecating humor if that is appropriate, and show that you are able to laugh at yourself. Maybe even add an embarrassing photo that would be a good ice breaker on that always awkward first date. Showing that you have a sense of humor and can laugh at yourself also shows confidence, and as mentioned earlier, that can be very becoming.

Get Some Outside Advice

Find a friend from the opposite sex and get them to give you some honest feedback about your profile. They may see things that you have never seen before or may be able to give you some unbiased advice about how your profile is being perceived. Ask them to tell you what they would look for in an online profile, and add some of that to yours.

Maybe it’s information about what books you’ve recently read or what movies are your favorites. Maybe it is information about your strengths and weaknesses that you may not realize yourself, but that others find interesting. Get another set of eyes on your profile and you may be surprised how much better it can be.

Jazzing up your online profile may be just what you need to get a fresh set of suitors knocking on your door. Following the tips above can lead you in the right direction and may even get you a few extra dates. Happy dating!
