Advice to Men Designing Online Dating Profiles (From a woman also on online dating)

  • Smile. For Heaven’s sake, why do men think they look better without a smile.  Seriously. Smile.
  • Be yourself. We can tell when you are trying to say what you think we want to read.
  • Post a picture already.  Of yourself.  Not your dog, your motorcycle, your favorite team logo.
  • If you must include a grown woman in your photos, it better be your mother or daughter, and you must explain it.
  • Do NOT include any other grown women. At all.
    • Don’t mention her in your profile.
    • Don’t caption about her in a picture where we couldn’t even tell there was a woman.
    • Don’t post a picture with her clearly cropped out.
  • One serious picture is okay. The rest should include smiles.
  • If you are going to start the conversation, make it more than “Hi”.
  • Also “You are gorgeous” is not an acceptable opening line.
  • And “U R Cute” is not cute at all.
  • If the other person initiates the conversation, answer with more than 2 sentences.
  • If you want a conversation to continue, ask a question.
    • Not “how are you?”
    • Not “what u doing?”
  • Put some effort into your profile.
  • Did I mention SMILE?
