Getting started on a new dating platform can be a daunting task. You may feel obligated to think of the cleverest puns and spend hours finding the right angle for that cover photo. But crafting an excellent dating profile isn’t an impossible task, especially if you know some tried and true tactics.
Here are some tips to follow if you want to maximize the chances of finding your perfect match, even if you’re new to online dating.
Great photographs are a must; even a top-notch profile description won’t be effective without them. Plan on uploading multiple photos for potential partners to get a better idea of you as a person. To make your photos as flattering as you can make them, consider:
Chances are, anyone using a dating app probably won’t have the same attention span as someone reading a novel. For this reason, make your profile description short and easy to read by dividing it into mini-paragraphs, each at most 3 sentences long.
Dedicate each paragraph to one aspect of yourself you’d like to share. Some ideas include:
Remember, keep it short and sweet so it can be skimmed easily while also painting a vivid picture of your personality.
With how convenient dating apps are, users tend to browse through dozens of profiles in a minute. If you want to reel in potential partners and ensure they don’t move on to the next profile too quickly, end your profile description with a conversation starter to push the interaction further into the messaging.
A question that’s fun to think about is a common tactic. Questions like “if you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would it be?” and “steak or sushi?” are friendly, thought-provoking, and the perfect spark for an interesting conversation.
You want to be concise but include as much important information as you can about yourself, as it shows to your partner how exciting and interesting you can be. When talking about yourself in the description, remember to:
Run a draft of your profile through a friend or family member for outside advice before publishing. Someone you know might have more experience in online dating.Plus, look at what other profiles are doing. Note if anything they’re saying catches your attention quickly and adopt those ideas into your profile.
Not all dating apps are created equally. Tinder is popular in heavily populated urban areas with its high traffic and fast pacing. But what if you live in a more peaceful rural area? Country singles are everywhere, but it can be difficult finding that special someone than in the city.
Bonfire might just be the perfect dating app for you. Available for Android and iOS, Bonfire lets you chat, send likes, follow other users, and share moments with potential partners throughout the countryside.
Country dating is easier at the bonfire.
