How to write a good dating profile

A lot of people I talk to about online dating are so worried about how to write their profile.  I have a few tips that I hope will help.  Like everything else you want to indicate your positive personality and  portray yourself in an attractive, flirty way without seeming ignorant.

We’ve compiled a guide of online dating profile tips with the dos and don'ts

Do show your attitude
Have you ever sensed someone's mood via text message?  Yes, words matter, your mood when you write the profile also matter.  Write your dating profile when you’re in a good mood.  Do not write it after a break up or a disaster date.  The more positive energy we give off, the more we'll receive.  Remember energy is everything, love attracts love. Grumpiness attracts grumpiness. Passion attracts passion. Rage attracts rage.  Be more positive and optimistic about the future. In order to make your dating profile desirable and memorable, show people what you’re passionate about and where your interests lie.

Do take a good profile picture
When I was dating I would not even respond to people that didn't have a profile picture.  People tend to build up an idea of a person’s personality by looking at their photo.  People also want to be able to relate to you online and have an idea of what you’re like as a person. So take the time and effort to make sure your photo represents you properly.  A full length head and shoulders profile picture and ideally an action shot are a great way to add variety to your profile.

Do show the real you
Be honest, present yourself in an honest and authentic way– imperfections and all. The idea is to find someone who you are compatible to so lying that you like animals when you don't will work against you if he plans a date at the zoo.  Show the real you and whoever is drawn to that is good for you and  whoever walks away probably wasn’t your type anyway.

DON’T tell  lies
While it may be tempting to sneak in a couple of white lies into your profile, don’t do it! Once you start lying you have to keep lying to cover the lie.  It's much easier to be honest than putting forth the energy required to pretend.
