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…
Attract beautiful girls without acting fake,
following a complicated system, or being creepy!

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.
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.
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.
