Can’t you ‘write hard’ and put a little effort into your profile? If you reject me, I will hound you to the end of the earth… But it does hint at emotional neediness.) We are all looking for a good match, and that person who makes you laugh and lights your fire, but in the 21st century it sounds a little naive to be talking of soul mates.People who need to describe themselves as crazy, zany, or any of the above are usually none of those things.When you first sign up with match.com, you’ll be asked to give some basic info about yourself.You’ll be able to pick the words that best describe you, and give others an idea of the things you’re interested in, be it eating out, dancing or volunteering.Have a look at what other members are writing for some inspiration, or ask your friends to describe you.
Instead, consider what makes you different from everybody else – are you just crazy about peanut butter sandwiches?
Why not go with lyrics from a song that sum up your personality or attitude to life?
Alternatively, make it brief and to the point; capture your passion and character and make it easier for people to find you.
Sarah Beeny, founder of My Single and TV personality, explains that using tired, dating clichés are not going to make your profile and you stand out, and ultimately could hamper your love life.
She said: 'Your dating profile is a vehicle for showing what makes you different, why someone should choose you compared with the thousands of other people available. Show people what makes you special and you are much more likely to find someone who you can really click with.'Sarah has teamed up with her in-house dating experts to compile a definitive guide of dating clichés many people have most likely been guilty of peddling, should definitely avoid and what they really tell you about someone. Great to see that you are a balanced human and have such ‘varied’ interests that span staying in and going out, but it’s hardly original.
With this is mind it’s good to use ‘buzz words’ that stand out, for example place names, film titles, football teams…whatever will make someone stop and linger on your profile.
