Thirdly, it’s best to leave work out of things at this point. Basically, I’m not on falling over myself to click the ‘read more’ button. In any case they are slightly more interesting and well thought out than the earlier ones, demonstrating a level of creativity and humour. With a little bit of effort you will probably come up with something that is better than 90% of what is currently out there!
Lovesbakingbread, for example, is harder to read and is actually a bit off-putting, the exact opposite of what you’re aiming for.
Firstly, the most important thing is to make sure you’re using correct spelling and grammar (apart from the capital letter usage as outlined above).
If you think of your dating profile as a shop full of goodies then your headline and username are your shop window dressing that are used to attract people inside.
Let’s have a look below at some actual dating headlines in use now (the good, the bad and the ugly…) I literally cut and paste the first 15 I came across directly from two different dating sites today – so these are real, live headlines uncensored by me.
So, avoid names like: I’m sure I don’t need to tell you this, but they are just awful.
Secondly, avoid anything remotely sexy or seductive – it will give the wrong impression.People can see right through fake attempts at being funny, and in fact those attempts, if done wrong, have the opposite of affect of making you sound dull and lame.Never have to worry again about whether or not you sound like a wannabe, use one of these headlines to show off how much you stand out from the rest of the crowd.Frank number two is making his username work hard for him rather than wasting this great opportunity to attract people from the get-go. How much easier would it be to send him an email than the first Frank? But also, crucially, it’s going to be much, much easier to remember the name of the second Frank, so if you want to find him again the next time you’re online, you will. Have a look back at some of the things you came up with about yourself last week.Are there any words/phrases/hobbies that stand out from the crowd that are representative of you?Being funny is a key element to attracting the opposite sex.
