Maybe some people find me hilarious (usually the ones who love puns and wordplay), but others aren’t amused.
Unless your name is Bonnie or Clyde, there’s no reason to include this overused cliché.
My response to this is similar to the one for the fancy dress/jeans conundrum, with this added advice: Stop trying to attract everyone.
While it may seem counterintuitive, I’m giving you explicit permission to turn some people off in your profile.
Biggest offenders include those where the author’s lack of imagination or energy just scream out “I can’t be bothered”, or “I’m lame” which of course, all reveal clues about character, intelligence, or confidence.
If a person be bothered to think of a few interesting words strung together to represent themselves, imagine how stimulating they would be on a date!
It also can work to attract someone who has similar interests with one quick zap.
As Dan Winchester, co-founder of Scamalytics said: “Scammers need to create relatively unique profile text, which supports their story, and often not in their mother tongue.
Think about it—it’s more important to be the genuine you than the version you think people want to see, or the version that tries to attract every single person on the site. That way, you know that when someone is interested, it’s because he or she likes what you have to say, not just the fact that you were trying to be inclusive.
Of course your friends would say all of these great things about you—they’re already your friends!
The dating profile headline is a one-time lightning-quick opportunity to show a little flair, and highlight something about your personality or a special interest.
The tagline can showcase your wit, a love of poetry, sense of humor, a romantic or philosophical nature, etc.
