How to write great online dating profiles
‘It’s been proven that the more photos you have on your profile, the more attention it will get,’ says Charly. Include at least a couple of clear head shots, where you’re not wearing sunglasses and you can clearly see your face.
I always include at least one full length photo too, so there are no surprises when we meet up in real life.’ Most people want to find someone who can make them laugh, so show people you have a sense of humour.
And you want to portray yourself in an attractive, flirty way without seeming forward.
‘If you struggle for inspiration, why not look at other profiles to see what other people are saying?
’ suggests Charly Lester, co-founder of new over 50s dating app Lumen.
‘Reading other peoples’ profiles might give you ideas for things to include in your own one.’ Wouldn’t you know, profile photos that demonstrate you playing your guitar or downhill skiing – even if your face isn’t showing – get more messages.
If you love travelling, say where your favourite place is and why.
Anything concrete like this brings you alive to anyone reading. Make the effort to renew your profile on a regular basis with relevant information about yourself.
