Online Dating Photos: Tips to Help Improve Success

Posted by:

Recently I was contacted by a reader who requested that I look over her profile because she felt like she wasn’t having an appropriate amount of success. She seemed primarily concerned that she may have written it poorly. Well, I took a look and I thought her text was actually quite good. She described herself well, covered what she was looking for, and so on. However, one thing did catch my attention: her photos. She ...

If I Am Shy, Should I Mention It In My Online Dating Profile?

Posted by:

This is a question shy men often ask due to the dilemma of wanting to be as honest as possible when dating online but, at the same time, not wanting to hurt their chances with women who may reject a man who mentions this trait. I believe the answer to this question really depends on the severity of the shyness. Due to this, I’ll discuss different degrees of shyness and then give my opinion on what should be included in ...

Getting a Professionally Written Online Dating Profile

Posted by:

Writing a profile that stands out is a difficult task for most of us. When asked to describe ourselves, it turns out most of us sound exactly the same. Whether we’re easy-going or fun-loving, whether we love going out or love cuddling up for a movie in, whether we hate playing games or love the outdoors…putting any of this in our profiles make us sound, well, like everyone else. Sounding like everyone else isn’t the worst thing in the world. ...

10 Dating Profile Headings for Software Engineers

Posted by:

I’ve been thinking about doing some online dating profile heading testing (that’s a mouthful!). I’m hoping to share the results here as I currently have a theory that weird or hard to understand headings may work as well as any other. At any rate, while thinking of a good profile heading to test out I came up with first in the list below. I thought it wasn’t too shabby and thought I could come up with nine more for a ...

Funny Dating Profiles

Posted by:

First a warning: this article does not tell you how to create a funny dating profile. It explains why trying too hard to create a funny profile is a bad idea. There are many things that should be a part of your profile (which I cover in my online dating guide) but being funny, especially artificially so, is not one of them. I know this isn’t what most men want to hear, trust me. I ...

Worth A Thousand Words? How about $150?

Posted by:

Recently, when a friend needed photos for his online dating profile, it was a good opportunity for my wife (who is a professional photographer) to get some portrait shots while helping a friend at the same time. The shoot went well and our friend genuinely liked the photos and had them up on his profile very quickly. A few weeks later, I mentioned that perhaps she could offer this service in addition to her other photography services. Interested to see ...

A Profile Review

Posted by:

A friend asked that I review his dating profile to see if there was anything he could improve on. In the past when reviewing dating profiles, I’ve always included my wife since I like to have a woman’s opinion. As you’ll see, we don’t always agree! What follows is a trimmed down version of his profile followed by my comments and then Kate’s.

The Profile:

Movies, museums, skiing, whitewater rafting, skating, video/board games, mini-golf. I’d like to try camping sometime. Really, I ...
