Once you have a good picture in your mind of the kind of person that you are looking for, get ready to tell your story.
The best way to write a dating profile that nobody pays attention to is to list what you like to do, or, even worse, what you are NOT looking for in a partner. They paint a picture of a unique person, with passions, experience and an abundant personality.
Speaking of fascinating, if you really want to learn how to capture someone’s attention, in person or in print, check out Sally Hogshead’s excellent book, Fascinate.
Be genuine and embrace what makes you a little quirky or different.
You may not appeal to everyone, but, you don’t need to. Or, are you saying what you think other people want to hear? Ask one or more friends what they appreciate most about you.
Instead of saying that you like hiking, talk about the time that you climbed Machu Picchu and camped under the stars.
Some people are afraid to be too bold in their dating profiles.
If your partner wants a younger man or woman, and they think that they can find them, no problem! But, if they are looking for someone with life experience, passion, honesty and wisdom, they need look no farther than you.
