Struggling to get much attention on your online dating profile?Include the words “sexy”, “honest” and “confident” and your chances of success will significantly increase.“He was making decisions for his account, swiping one way or the other, based on a single photograph,” Mc Gloin recalled.“I thought, ‘This is insane to me, he’s judging everything about this person just based on this one photo.'” Mc Gloin found himself questioning internally why the women he considered to be beautiful were even on the dating app; they seemed too good to be true.She at least 5'7" (I am 6'), not a bbw, but doesn't live at the gym either.She has high-maintenance looks with a down-to-earth attitude, values, and personality.In the meantime, stay well clear of describing yourself as shy (2%), trustworthy (1%) and, oddly enough, happy (0.3%).If you’re a man whose profile is filled with references to how handsome everyone tells you you are, remove all of that and instead refer to yourself as honest (13%), intelligent (10%) and confident (9%); women value your character over your vanity.
Rory Mc Gloin, an assistant professor of communication at the University of Connecticut, was at a family function when he saw his nephew using the dating app Tinder.
According to dating and relationship consultant Damona Hoffman, online dating activity picks up between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, as single folk try to find someone to kiss as the ball drops and land a date for Valentine’s Day.
But when you log onto your dating profile, how much thought are you putting into the information you put out there, especially the photos you use to attract potential date mates?
New research published in the journal Personal Relationships suggests that things like the length of your profile, the number of positive and negative words you use, and whether or not you use swear words, are all sending subtle signals and influencing how other online daters assess your personality.“Online daters who wish to be perceived as more consistent with the ideal romantic partner personality profile should write fairly lengthy ads that use an abundance of positive emotion words, and refrain from any negative emotionality or cursing,” the researchers write.” Sounds obvious, but if you’ve dated online, you know that it’s not.
People write short ads that reveal little – and then complain that online dating sucks and people are only concerned with photos. e-Cyrano clients, on the other hand, usually have strangers write to tell them that their profile is the best they’ve ever seen.
