Eight Mistakes You Don’t Want To Make On Your Online Dating Profile [LIST/AUDIO]
Are you single and about to 'bite the bullet' and try online dating? Or, are you married and have a friend who is talking about it?
Before you create a profile, make sure you know not to the following.
Tom Morgan recently sat down with Chad Stone, author of "Confessions of a Middle Aged Babe Magnet"
In the book, Chad lists the eight mistakes you don't want to make on your online dating profile:
- Don’t post a gloomy-faced shot as your primary photo. Smile! Look happy. Your potential dates are NOT looking for a bad time. No one ever wrote, “For a bad time call 555-7649” on a restroom wall.
- Don’t post a photo of yourself and your friend if your friend is better looking than you are.
- Don’t forget that your profile is a sales brochure for you. Make it fun and snappy. It you’re a bad
writer, ask your creative friends for help.
- Under the category of 'What’s Your Best Feature', don’t choose “feet”.
- Don’t lie. Tell the truth about yourself. Saying that you’re 6 feet tall if you’re really 5 foot six is just plain stupid. Your lie is going to be revealed the first time you meet face to face.
- Sound enthusiastic, not bored. Most women aren’t looking to date bored men. And men definitely aren’t looking for women who sound impossible to please.
- Women: Refrain from bad-mouthing men in your profile unless you are looking for a woman as your next lover. (The same advice also applies to men. Don’t bad-mouth women!)
- Emphasize yourself, not your adorable dog—or your many cats. No one wants to compete with a furry creature that has to go outside to poop.
