Online Dating Profile Tips for Men

Land hot dates with these online dat­ing pro­file tips

If find­ing the right part­ner is as impor­tant as find­ing the right job, then it only makes sense that your online dat­ing pro­file be as tar­geted and entic­ing as possible.

Think of your online pro­file as your résumé. If your résumé is too generic and not tar­geted for the job you want to land, it will be ignored and you won’t be invited in for an interview.

In the same way if your online dat­ing pro­file is not writ­ten to attract the type of women with the val­ues and qual­i­ties that are impor­tant to you, don’t expect a flood of emails from inter­ested women, let alone any hot dates.

In this post we’ll take a look at online dat­ing pro­file tips for men, with a focus on com­mon pit­falls and things to avoid. Fol­low­ing these tips will go a long way to dif­fer­en­ti­ate your pro­file from most dat­ing pro­files online.

Don’t make the rookie mis­take of think­ing that women don’t read this stuff just because you might be more inter­ested in her bikini pho­tos than the per­son­al­ity traits and val­ues she con­veys in her writ­ten essays.

So with­out fur­ther ado…

Things to Avoid in Your Online Dat­ing Profile

Avoid Long Lists of Adjec­tives
Don’t give long laun­dry lists of adjec­tives describ­ing your­self and what you’re look­ing for in a girl­friend. For exam­ple, “I’m con­fi­dent, good look­ing, intel­li­gent, charm­ing, easy going…” or “Hope­fully you’re sexy, smart, classy, roman­tic, fun, inter­est­ing…” You get the point!

Peo­ple don’t remem­ber lists of words, adjec­tives and clichés. People remem­ber sto­ries. Sto­ries not only give her a con­ver­sa­tional hook to email and chat with you about, they can also be used to high­light your pos­i­tive attrib­utes with­out actu­ally men­tion­ing them.

Avoid Sound­ing Too Picky Or Demand­ing
List­ing demands and a long list of qual­i­fiers, as described above, makes you appear cranky, picky and spoiled. Again, get rid of demand­ing sen­tences that start like this, “You must be…” fol­lowed by a long list of qualifiers.

Avoid Being Self-Centered 
Don’t start all your sen­tences with “I”. You’ll sound less ego­tis­ti­cal and smarter by rewrit­ing some of these sen­tences. Rather than say­ing “I like to hike,” say “Hik­ing in the moun­tains and explor­ing the great out­doors is one of my favorite past times.”

Avoid Being Neg­a­tive 
Nobody responds well to neg­a­tiv­ity. If you’re depressed, fed up, lonely, frus­trated, or just out of a rela­tion­ship, you might want to wait until you’re in a bet­ter place before you put your­self out there again. Also don’t bring up your less attrac­tive qual­i­ties. Nobody is per­fect, but hope­fully your good stuff out­weighs the bad. If it doesn’t, then you need to work on it.

Avoid Men­tion­ing Pre­vi­ous Rela­tion­ships 
On a sim­i­lar note, don’t men­tion the trauma of your prior rela­tion­ship. If you rant about a prior rela­tion­ship, you’re basi­cally say­ing that you have a lot of emo­tional bag­gage. Use your online dat­ing pro­file to adver­tise your most attrac­tive self, not to hang out your dirty laundry.

Avoid Sar­casm
A com­mon mis­take men make in their online dat­ing pro­files is try­ing too hard to be funny. Women love a great sense of humor, but be care­ful that it doesn’t come across as sar­cas­tic. If you’re not sure how it will be inter­preted, err on the side of caution.

Avoid Being Risque 
Don’t over­whelm her with your pas­sion­ate nature and sex­ual desires before you’ve had a chance to meet her, or chances are you’ll never get to meet her. Take a cold shower and tone down any sex­ual lan­guage, even if you are as horny as a three balled tom­cat!

Avoid Apol­o­giz­ing Or Mak­ing Excuses 
Don’t make the clas­sic apolo­gies like “I don’t know why I’m doing this…” or “I can’t believe I am here, but…”. Yes, you reg­is­tered on an online dat­ing site like mil­lions of other peo­ple across the world and so what? Online dat­ing no longer has the stigma that it had 10 years ago. There is noth­ing to be ashamed of so get over it.

Avoid Shar­ing Your Entire Life Story 
Try to resist the urge to put your entire life’s story in your online dat­ing pro­file. By not going into too much detail you’ll give her more oppor­tu­nity to ask questions. Save some­thing for later.

Check Gram­mar and Spelling 
Poor gram­mar and spelling makes a bad impres­sion, so be sure to spell-check. There are no excuses for poor spelling in our com­puter age. While you’re at it, avoid abbre­vi­a­tions and acronyms. They might seem obvi­ous to you, but they could be misinterpreted.

Clos­ing Thoughts

I hope you found these online dat­ing pro­file tips help­ful. Don’t fool your­self into think­ing that you can com­plete your online dat­ing pro­file in 10 min­utes and have women lin­ing up to meet you. We live in a com­pet­i­tive world and land­ing a great girl­friend through online dat­ing is at least as chal­leng­ing as land­ing a great job, and will require effort on your part.

I don’t say this to put you off, because their are many advan­tages of online dat­ing and online dat­ing really does work oth­er­wise it wouldn’t be nearly as pop­u­lar as it is. I just want you to go in with the right mind­set and avoid some of the com­mon online dat­ing mis­takes men make. The extra effort that you invest now to present the best pos­si­ble image of your­self, will really go a long way in help­ing you to meet qual­ity women online.

I'm not naturally good with women. Most of what I know I learned the hard way. I know how it feels to be too shy to approach, to get stuck in the "Friend Zone" and have girls flake on me. Check out this embarrassing post about How I Got My First Slap →
