If you have just signed up to online dating, you might be curious about how you attract the right people to your profile. You don’t want to waste your time on people who aren’t looking for the same thing as you, so you need to know what to put up to attract the type of people you do want. If you keep reading, you are going to discover our tips on how to create your profile to attract the right person.

Make An Effort With Your Profile Picture

The first thing that you should think about if your profile picture. You want to make sure that you have something clear, that showcases all of your best features. We would highly recommend that you don’t have any other people in the photo with you, but if you insist on doing this, make it known which one you are.

People aren’t going to be inclined to get to know you though if you have multiple members of the opposite sex in your profile photo. So try to keep this out of your profile photo if you can. We know that some people feel more confident when there are more people in the picture, but if you can, avoid this at all costs.

Keep Your Profile Short And Sweet

You don’t need to put your entire life story on your profile. You need something about yourself, what you like to do, and other things like this on your page. You can even put what you do for a living if you want to, but don’t ramble on. The person looking at your page isn’t going to spend more than a minute or so reading what you’ve written, so there’s no point in writing a lot.

Just keep it simple with your interests and key information about you. Leaving some things to the imagination can be exciting, and an aura of mystery can even attract more people to you.

Leave Out The Negatives

Do not start talking about the fact that you hate life, things that you don’t like etc. Your online dating profile is not a place for you to list all the things that you don’t like, or you don’t want. Not only is this going to turn people away from you, but it is likely that people are going to assume you are the very thing you’re saying you hate. Like, if you say ‘I don’t need a drama queen’, a lot of people will assume you are one yourself.

So, to attract the right people, you need to keep your profile happy and positive, so that you don’t come across as a negative person yourself.

What Do You Want?

Make it clear on your profile what you are looking for so that you don’t end up with timewasters. So, if you are looking for something long-term, just put that in your profile, but if you aren’t looking for anything serious, make sure that onlookers know this.

Hopefully, you will use this guide to create your online dating profile to attract the right type of person.
