from Brooklyn, NY for suggesting this week’s topic: Online dating, once a fringe and stigmatized activity, is now over a billion industry.
Over 40 million Americans have given online dating a try, and over a of the American couples married between 20 met online.
I fully don’t expect you to message me, I guess if I was getting 20 or 30 messages a day from people I wouldn’t have to.
Unfortunately real, honest guys like me often get passed over because we don’t stand out among the hundreds on here trying to find a date by auto-blasting e-mails they have stored up on a hard drive.
What makes any female dating profile great is the fact that it stands out from the rest of the profiles on any given online dating site. It’s not generic, neutral and overly politically correct.
It doesn’t describe you with overused adjectives such as “intelligent, compassionate, educated, and independent” and it is free of boring statements that say nothing such as “I am as comfortable staying in as staying out.” Rather than continue describing what a good profile is, I want to bring to your attention real examples of three actual dating profiles from on popular site that I rated for content.
The way the current trend is heading, what will dating be like in 2030, and will that be a better or worse time to be on the dating market than 1995? I think the term “online dating” is part of the problem and makes people who don’t know much about it think it refers to people forming entire relationships online and only meeting in person much later.
Simply considered as online meeting people, it makes a ton of sense.
“100% Italian, fun loving, affectionate young lady who knows what it takes to make a relationship work.(This first sentence says nothing eye-catching about the woman and is very bland, and boring). (still, nothing thought provoking or attractive) I am very spontaneous and I love the outdoors, watching movies, dancing, and traveling. (Finally something somewhat interesting that she says about herself).(Another cliché statement that is being used by thousands of other women) A great date can be staying at home with a movie and popcorn, or a night on the town. I made myself a promise a few years ago to take a vacation somewhere new, out of state, every year. Well, that is a little about me if you are interested say hello and we will chat. ” *********************** This profile gets a higher grade because it reflects on the writer’s character and her personality.I commented in parentheses throughout the profiles below what I thought of them and why: I gave this profile a passing grade because while it’s not great, nothing about it makes it terrible.“I have been in the ——- area for a few years now and always looking to meet new people. I enjoy meeting new people and going to new places.
