How to Create the Perfect Online Dating Profile

online dating profile

The goal of an online dating profile is to attract a person that best compliments you. This cool infographic shows you how to create your perfect profile.

 

According to Pew Research, more than 20 percent of singles in their mid-30s and 40s hit up online dating sites and apps to seek out that perfect match. While the preference for online dating isn’t as high among Gen Xers as with millenials, the power of the right swipe has definitely picked up popularity over the years.

However, for singles who are used to finding dates in a face-to-face environment versus a glowing screen, creating that creative and concise dating profile might be tricky. Attracting someone in the e-centric world can be a digital dilemma. The profile and pictures must be grabbing—but not desperate. You need to be honest—but not go overboard with details.

[VIDEO] If you find it hard to stay positive while dating, you’re not alone. Here are 4 super tips on becoming a dating optimist on your journey to true love.

Is it hard for you to stay positive while dating? For many people, dating can be frustrating. You go on first dates with men who lied about their age and bore you to death with endless stories about themselves. And then, you finally see someone online with potential. Nice looking, seems pretty ‘normal’, interesting, bright, and fun. You do a little happy dance. You start a conversation on Bumble or Tinder, Match or OkCupid. You exchange a few texts or emails, and then…radio silence. Argh!

Or, you go on a first date, and you have a great time. Conversation flows. You even make out at the end of the date. You agree to see each other again. And then…poof! He disappears. Oh no!

It’s natural to want to stop dating. There are obviously no quality people to date. And you’d rather be single than settle, right? Women get cats and men go to the gym or bar seven days a week.

Well, it doesn’t have to be that way. There really are wonderful quality people to date.

Don’t give up! The challenge is to keep on going, maintain your self-esteem, and stay positive. And if you put the following 4 tips into practice, it will help you enjoy the journey to true love.
