You’ve already learned how to weed through women&rsquo,s profiles, but after reading that article, it became clear to me that dudes need to understand how to make their own profile stand out from the crowd. As a woman who dated online for years and now has her own business in the field, A Little Nudge , I know what other women want. I&rsquo,ll break it into three categories: photos, profiles and emails.
Just as a woman is only as attractive as her worst picture (being a woman, the same may be true for studs). Put your best pictures out there &mdash, as long as they are accurate. Two good photos win over four or more mediocre photos any day. Women will look for the one bad one and determine not to email you because of it.
No. Two: What to put in the pictures
I see so many pictures of guys with their mates. Why? You are already being compared to all of the other profiles on whatever dating site you&rsquo,re using, so why let someone compare you in your very own profile picture? Have you ever looked at a damsel&rsquo,s profile and thought to yourself, &ldquo,Well, she&rsquo,s nice, but her friend in the pic is cuter. Man, I wish I could meet her instead.&rdquo, Women do that too. So, commence cropping! Also, pictures of scenery to demonstrate your &ldquo,lifestyle&rdquo, or last vacation should be saved for facebook. We want to see you &mdash, period.
Getting in front of someone after you&rsquo,ve posted inaccurate pictures won&rsquo,t win her over, it will drive her away.
No. Four: The &ldquo,interesting&rdquo, pictures
The last picture you post should be your &ldquo,interesting&rdquo, picture. This is my secret. Now that we think you&rsquo,re good-looking, we need something to help us begin a conversation. Posting a picture of you skydiving, being a volunteer firefighter, posing with your dog &mdash, these are what make you different and give us something to ask about if we email you.
I&rsquo,m sure we&rsquo,ve all seen the &ldquo,I love music and traveling, and I love to laugh&rdquo, profiles. Most people I know love those things. But I don&rsquo,t know a lot of people who have lived in eight states in the U.S., love taking improv comedy classes and took three weeks off from work once to see if he found his calling in bird-watching. (The response was no.)
These are the things we want to know &mdash, the things that make you quirky and unique.
