Dating profile introduction lines
y fundamental approach to profile writing is to show not tell.
This means demonstrating who you are by what you do.
“In the beginning…” “Call me Ishmael.” “It was the best of times; it was the worst of times.” “I am an invisible man.” “Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins.” First lines are important and so are first impressions.
While the above first lines helped make their respective literary works well-known, I would not recommend any of them for the opening lines of your online dating profile.
You don’t want your profile to sound like everyone else’s. Craft these two lines into a unique reflection of you.
Keep in mind who you are, who you want to meet and where you are: on a Catholic website to meet and fall in love with another Catholic.
Finally, do not include offensive language or concepts.
Now, lets look at an example of a profile that will stand out through both the way they are written and their content.So, lets look at a few typical examples of bad profiles: “I am not good at writing about myself, but my friends say that I am intelligent, professional, educated and ambitious. I am looking to a meet an intelligent, beautiful woman for dating and relationship.” – at first, this looks like a well-written profile by a guy who seems to have head on his shoulders. There is nothing “catchy” about this profile – there is nothing that would compel a reader to stop and respond to it.However, it has one major flaw that will make many women skip over it. Lets look at another bad profile: “I went to school in the east coast, but now I work for a major software company where I work up the corporate ladder. I love hiking, watching baseball, and bbq on weekends.” – the writer must be reminded that this is a dating profile – not a resume or a sales presentation in front of his human resources department. as a rule, you should never start your profile by talking about school or work, as it’s not interesting and not really relevant to what you should be trying to achieve – to catch a woman’s attention.” “I love to have fun, party, dance, and drink of my buddies.The first 200 characters are of greater importance because they are visible before someone even opens your profile.They appear on member profile pages in the activity stream in the center of the home page and in the “Who’s Viewed Me” section. Today’s online world demands that; tweets, texts, headlines and sound bytes are competing for our attention.
