Ways You May Be Sabotaging Your Dating Profile

If you find yourself having a hard time attracting a possible match on any of the various matchmaking websites you’ve signed up for you may want to look over your profile again. It’s common for men to sabotage their profiles when first signing up for dating websites without meaning to. Be sure to include only positive information about yourself and don’t go out of your way to put yourself down in your own profile. Be sure to upload friendly looking profile pictures and not act too mysterious in your description of yourself. You want to create an image of yourself that women can fall in love with and you won’t do that with dorky photos and self-criticism. You don’t have to lie and claim to be great at things you are not, but you can find more positive ways to describe yourself to the Internet at large that will prove more successful in attracting women.

Negativity and Excuses Are Always A Turn Off

“Stop whining about your previous relationships, it will frustrate her”

Be aware of how you phrase things in your profile and be sure to avoid negative language or make up long winded explanations that read more like excuses than interesting information about yourself. You don’t have to lie but go by the rule of omission if there’s something you’re thinking of including in your profile that just might be better left unsaid. Women like men who are uplifting and strong, not whining on dating profiles about their life or making excuses for their pathetic state of affairs. We’ve all had relationships end badly at various ages, no one needs to explain why they are on the dating scene again or give sob stories about exes. No one wants to hear about your exes. Dating should be fun and not a giant pity party to rehash all the terrible things you’ve gone through. Don’t mention it in your profile! And if you did, remove that information immediately! No wonder no one wants to talk to you if all you do is cry about your ex.

Don’t Sound So Impressive You Don’t Have Time To Date

“Don’t irritate her by mentioning your busy schedule in your profile”

Don’t litter your profile with so much information it becomes overwhelming to potential dates. If your life looks too busy and full of adventure without having a girlfriend, potential women may think you’re too busy to tend to their needs properly. Dating requires time and commitment and if you’re just so impressive that you’re jetting around the world every week women may think twice about dating you. They want stability and attention and if you look too busy for them they will skip right over your profile. Avoid this problem by talking about how you long for a partner in your travels and feel lonely without someone to share your life with. Seem interesting in a way that leaves room for a woman in your life to join you. Many women dream about the high life, so paint a picture of you together enjoying that life instead of you living it up single on your profile.
