Writing your online dating profile is one of those terrible necessities in life, on par with writing a cover letter, writing a staff bio, or putting into writing in any capacity all the good things about yourself. Here are cheats on how to write a dating profile that will give fellow online daters an idea of who you are—no agony required.
1. Use Listicles
Making a list of some of your favorite things is a concise and easy way to communicate what you’re into, and it’s easy for someone browsing your profile to get an idea of whether or not you have anything in common. Huge music buff? Name your all-time, top five favorite songs, à la John Cusack in High Fidelity. Huge movie buff? List your desert island essentials. It can be anything—countries you’ve visited, restaurants in your city, or artists.
2. Add Your Favorite Corny Joke
Admittedly, this is what some would call click-bait, but keeping your profile short and simple by posing a riddle or starting a joke, but leaving out the punch line, is a) intriguing; b) proves you have a sense of humor; and c) forces people to either talk to you, or to think about the beginning of that dumb joke all day.
3. Make Your Friend Do It For You
It’s way easier for someone who already loves you to articulate what makes you special, and more often than not, they see awesome things in you that you don’t even see in yourself. So if you’re wondering how to write a dating profile let your close friend show you how it’s done. Or, better yet, since there aren’t any rules against having a guest author in your dating profile, pose the question to your bestie, “If you were going to set me up with someone, what would you tell them about me?”.
