So you want to write an online dating profile, but you don’t know where to start.

You’ve been staring at that little blinking line for hours and you still can’t think of anything to say.

Now you’re starting to wonder if you should just give it all up and spend your afternoon trying to beat the next level of Angry Birds instead.

Chicks dig guys who would rather spend time shooting birds out of slingshots than trying to talk to them, right??

No! Put down the smartphone and get your ass back in front of that computer.

I’m about to share three tips that will take your profile to the next level, and you don’t want to miss it.  The pigs can wait.

Eliminate Clichés

“I love life and live it to the fullest.  My buddies say I’m funny and cool.  I love going out to eat, listening to music, and hanging out with friends.  I’m looking for a woman who’s comfortable in her own skin.  No baggage.”

Does any of that sound familiar?  Well it should, because I just summed up 95% of the profiles on dating sites.

Let’s break it down for a second: what does that profile actually tell me?

That you’re not a suicidal maniac like all the rest of the men I meet online?

That your friends have nice things to say about you because they’re your friends? 

That you’re looking to date someone who’s happy, healthy, and drama-free?

That you enjoy doing things that literally everyone else on the planet enjoys doing?

Wow, you’re really a catch!

Sarcasm aside, you see where I’m going with this.  A profile that’s full of cliches doesn’t actually tell women anything about who you are, what you’re into, and why they want to get to know you.

Find your delete button and use it.

Paint a Picture with Your Words

Women are emotional creatures.

I know, I know…that’s not a shock, right? Every man knows that we love anything that appeals to our emotions, even the bad ones.

But if you know that, then why don’t you use it in your dating profiles?

We want you to paint us a picture with your words. Make us feel something. 

If we wanted to read something boring, we’d crack out our old high school calculus textbooks. But we don’t want that.

We want to feel inspired.

We want to laugh.

We want to feel a connection to someone.

 You are not your height and weight stats or your astrological sign.

You are someone far more interesting, and if you play your cards right, you might be a someone we want to get to know.

Tell us why.

Let Your Confidence Shine Through

There is nothing hotter than a confident man, except maybe two confident men who have massage therapy licenses and some spare time on their hands. But let’s not go there…you’re not here to hear about my fantasies.

A recent study found that women are able to determine the attractiveness of a man online without ever even looking at his pictures.

How’d they do it?

Without even knowing it, the most attractive men expressed more confidence in their profile writing than their more average-looking counterparts.

So what does this mean for you?

It has nothing to do with whether or not you’re physically attractive (and that’s subjective anyway).

If you display confidence in your profile writing, women will be more attracted to you no matter what your pictures look like.

And there you have it…three tips to break the mold and write a more attractive online profile.

You may now resume your regularly scheduled Angry Birds game.
