Online Dating Success With the Catch Your Match™ Formula


Exactly what is a Catch Your Match Formula™, and why would someone need it?

I wrote this book because a few years ago, I was speaking to an old friend, someone I grew up with in middle school. She showed me her dating profile, and asked what I thought of it. I said, “Don’t post this. It would be a bad idea.” This happened with several people [who were posting the wrong things in their online profiles.] I eventually realized that common sense is not common practice.

I have a pretty good handle on marketing from my background in advertising copywriting. 

A dating profile is an advertisement. You have to have a call to action at the end. Most people are not getting results. Only 20% of all people online are getting dates/getting married. [I wanted to let people know there’s a better way to date online.]

What’s the biggest mistake people make in dating profiles?

Most people tend to be myopic. Their profile seems self-serving. ‘This is who I am, this is who you need to be, etc.’ It doesn’t do an effective job of building rapport and curiosity.

People throw adjectives onto a profile, and those words mean different things to different people. For example, ‘adventurous’ can mean throwing on a backpack and traveling around the world. What is it to you? If you say, “One of my greatest trips was going on a safari to Africa”, you will grab the attention of the right person and have something to begin a conversation around.

Be clear about who you are and tell some stories. Don’t throw everything into your profile. Leave some intrigue.

Can you explain your acronym: Tell ‘Em Why You’re The B.E.S.T.?

B: What are the Benefits of dating you? 

E: What Experience will we share together? Will we go traveling? Are you health oriented?

S: What’s the Sizzle, the excitement you offer?

T: What are the Traits you bring to the table?

Be positive, and also, be clear with what you don’t want. When you’re clear with your deal breakers, it says, “I know my value.” 

Online dating is not the be all end all, it’s a way to make dating more effective for you. You have nothing to lose. It’s great to be able to say who you are and what you’re about in a profile. It will serve you well in getting to know someone on a date, too.
