A study of 1.2 million profiles by Plenty of Fish showed women who got into a relationship online used the word “relationship” 16 percent more than women who were still single. Why not be honest and speak from that place in your heart?
But I have learned a lot over the years about what makes for a good headline for a dating site. Most dating websites & apps don't use them anymore.
If you happen to be using one of the few sites that still have them, your profile headline is the least important part of your dating profile.
Writing an online dating profile comes with easy and hard steps. This may seem obvious, but a recent study posted on e Harmony, which analyzed 12,000 online dating profiles, confirmed that both men and women chose “funny” as a characteristic they are looking for in a partner, ranking it sixth out of a list of 10 enticing words. Got some Pablo Neruda quotes you’ve been keeping on your intentions board? That same e Harmony study also revealed that you should describe the kind of person you are, but only using certain “attractive” words.
Easy might include filling out your height, while hard might include coming up with a good dating profile headline. If you can be funny, it’s universally acknowledged as a good idea. Looks like women should use words like sweet, optimistic, and thoughtful, while men should use words like passionate, spontaneous, and perceptive.
• Some people chase dreams, I make mine a reality.• Looking for someone who can deal with new age, female Einstein.• Please don't email me saying that you think I'm hot... • You think Lindsay Lohan or Kim Kardashian is hot and sexy? • Where to find my Gerard Butler from PS I Love You! • Your last online date.• I believe that griffins, good men and other mythical creatures exist - prove me correct, at least in one respect!
• Finding a good man is like nailing Jello to a tree - I'm desperate to nail Jello to a tree! • If you don't like coffee, there are always the movies and the baseball games!
• My soul mate's gonna be my only property; guys who can commit unconditionally only need apply.
These dating headlines may seem a little over the top, but gone are the days when the profiles read, 'Looking for true love', 'where's my prince charming? Do update your profile every now and then, as people get bored of seeing the same things over and over again.
If you look at these terms carefully, you’ll see the theme is they evoke an attractive picture in the mind’s eye of the reader.
