Here are 4 online dating profiles examples to attract men as well as some don’ts to watch out for: They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and that appears to be true.
Scientists at Barts, the London School of Medicine, and The University of North Texas suggest that looking at other people’s online dating profiles, finding what catches your eye, and then mirroring the good aspects in your own profile will bring you success.
It’s dishonest, and you’ll only make the guy mad when you meet in person.
See how this photo is clear, there aren’t any distractions in the background, and she isn’t covering her face with a hat or something? You’ll also want to mix up your photos with some headshots, full-body shots, action shots, etc., and make sure they match who you say you are.
So if you say you’re outdoorsy, then you should have at least one picture of you camping or hiking or skiing.
Almost every dating site lets you create a dating profile for free, (even lets you browse profiles for free), so make use of it.
Maybe you’ll see that one woman used a quote in her headline that you thought was clever and would attract a guy, or maybe you’ll notice another woman posted a video of herself instead of just photos.
In terms of group shots, you want the men to actually know which one is you, so stick to solo photos.
As for sexy pictures, you want to walk that fine line between showing enough without revealing too much. Your dating profile headline is the short phrase that usually appears next to your photo.Similar to the “just checking this out” headline above, coming off like online dating is chore to you will be a turnoff to men.Honest, confident, humble, funny, friendly — this is how you want to be, not aloof.Studies show women who wear red in their profile photo receive more initial messages from men than women who don’t, but that’s the only thing that’s right with this pic. And avoid selfies as well as group and overly sexualized pictures — I beg of you.See how it looks like she just rolled out of bed late for Sunday brunch with the girls? Not only are selfies way overplayed, but they really only make sense in the context of a social media site like Instagram.Besides using the example (and don’t) above as a starting point, here are several other tips for when you’re filling out your profile information: If you aren’t as intelligent as Marie Curie or as funny as Amy Schumer, then don’t try to come off like you are. Take some time to think about what you like about yourself and make that stand out in your profile.
