Creating Your Online Dating Profile

Are you considering the possibility of using an Online Dating Site to find the Date or Love of your dreams? Yes? Well, did you know that the most important part of finding your special someone through online dating is your profile. As explained in my book "the Ultimate Online Dating Handbook" even if you plan on being proactive in your search, you will still need a stellar profile. Why? Mainly because anyone you email, wink or nod will most likely use your profile as a way of deciding whether or not they wish to respond to you. So, how do you create an eye grabbing profile? Here are 6 steps that will get you on your way to dating ecstasy.

1- Take as much time as you need to build your profile, there is no need to rush through this process. Read each section carefully and be sure to give as much information as you can. In the "talk about yourself" section be sure to have more then just a just couple sentences. You must remember that potential dating partners are reading this info to get a feel of whether or not the two of you might "hit it off". So tell them about yourself. Your likes, your dislikes etc.

2- You want to standout from the crowd. There are lots, and I mean lots of "I'm a 26 year old SWF/SWM who likes movies and swimming". You need to be more specific so you can create an interest in you. After all you are creating a sales page for yourself. What are your favorite movies, t.v. shows, music, singer, group, etc? Do you have any hobbies? Play sports? Yes? Then tell people about it. Do you have a great sense of humor? Then show people that great sense humor.

3- Remember that being negitive is not an attractive trait in a date. Be positive about yourself. You really don't want to say things like "I'm doing this on a dare" or "I'm just trying this out for the hell of it". You won't be taken seriously with this type of comment. And, don't be conserned about looking for a date or romance online, you won't be thought of as being desperate. Just like you, 61% of American Singles will look for a date online this year. That's a lot of dates! So project a Happy you, saddness isn't an attractive trait either.

4- Be honest about yourself. You can say you are as funny as Jim Carey or as hot as Pam Anderson, but if you're not your potential date won't be impressed. Remember that there is always the possibility you will take you online romance offline and meet face to face. So be honest, you'll get great dates just being yourself.

5- Use a spell checker! There is nothing worse than reading a profile of someone you think you might be interested in and very fourth word is incorrectly spelled. Sure, we're not all great spellers, but you know that squiggly red line under half of your text, well, it's there for a reason. Create your text in a word processor, then copy and paste it into your profile. This way you can save it and use it again if you sign up for more than one dating site. It will also allow you to tweek your profile from time to time.

6- This one is a given - Upload a photo or two. As part of your profile, the photo is one of the most important parts. If you decide not to upload a photo, again you will not taken seriously. Even if you don't consider yourself terribily attractive, beleive me there are hundreds of people out there who will. Just think about this, When you're reading someone's profile, how important would it be to see a photo of that person?

Well, what you have above are the basics. You're ready to get started. Hope these tips will help you to create an eye (date) catching profile.

Good Luck!
