Gone are the days of building your dating profile yourself. Things have gotten a lot more complicated. There are actual dating profile professionals you can hire to make your Tinder profile more appealing.
One such expert, Meredith Golden, claims she has perfected the profile and has a 100% success rate with clients. If you aren’t quite ready to pull the trigger and hire a dating profile builder, here are some tips she says will spruce up your online dating game:
Don’t make your profile about what you want in a perfect match: Make your profile all about you, so you don’t inadvertently eliminate someone you might actually have great chemistry with.
Avoid negativity: That means leave out a long list of pet peeves and never use the words "need not apply" in your profile. You don’t come across as very nice or approachable.
Don’t swipe on the weekends: Meredith explains, "An attractive single is one who presents themselves as having a happy and full life. Sitting around on a Saturday afternoon online-dating sends the message that you don’t have much happening."
Stick with sunny, happy pictures on your profile: Leave the serious, brooding and artsy photos for your Instagram feed. A photo that gives off positive vibes is much more likely to get swiped.
Ask a friend what they think: Have someone look at it and give you honest feedback. (Glamour)
