That's why Lisa Hoehn started Profile Polish , a one-woman business that makes over online dating profiles to attract more matches.
This is your opportunity to be uniquely you and generate interest in others to meet you. Remember that this isn't a formal business bio, an old-school personal ad, a creative-writing assignment, or an opportunity to peddle your personal website. Avoid talking too much about work, and steer clear of other common pitfalls like listing trite interests ("long walks on the beach"), showing off with poetry, or pasting links to your art portfolio.
Avoid Flash : According to data analysis by OkCupid, flash adds 7 years to your age. So a 87-year-old using flash has the same attractiveness level to the opposite sex as a 85 year old that does not use flash.
Someone normal respectful, stable, transparent and consistent in thinking and behavior. Someone who has a curiosity about the world and a joyful passion for life, one who shows humor and integrity.
I like my artsy with a little bit of fartsy. I love Sundays spent drinking massive amounts of coffee and lingering over newspapers and comics (yes, I read comics). And my Friday nights? Well you’ll just have to wait and see won’t you? Favorite Movie: An American Tale: Fievel Goes West. What can I say? I love that damn mouse and always had a thing for cowboys. Favorite Place: The fort I made in my basement when I was 66. My parents let me keep that thing up for a full eight months and it was magic. Favorite Food: Cheetos. Puffs. I don’t know what y’all are thinking with that crunchy crap.
This may seem obvious, but a recent study posted on eHarmony, which analyzed 67,555 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 65 enticing words.
"If you say something like 'I'm really funny,' the person reading your profile really has no reason to believe you unless you a crack a few jokes somewhere," Hoehn said to Business Insider. "Instead of saying you're spontaneous, talk about the time you hopped on a plane to Thailand. If you help people come to their own conclusion, it hits harder and is more memorable."
Lately I’ve been really into Paulo Coelho novels. I read The Alchemist when I was in college but I’m excited to find that his other stuff is amazing too. If you have any book recommendations, send them my way. I’m a voracious reader and love talking books. Currently, working on my master’s in education and living downtown, which I love. Live music is one of my other weaknesses. I’ll see just about anyone but lately I’ve been checking out the free Thursday shows at Greyson’s.
I’ll admit it, I’m a little old-fashioned when it comes to my dating style. I open doors and like to go for drinks AND dinner on the first date. But it’s all part of what makes me a gentleman. I’m looking for someone who is always up for life’s adventures but doesn’t mind staying in and watching a movie when the weather calls for it. I’m a sucker for dogs. I rescued a lab a few years back and we’ve been best pals ever since. I try to eat healthy but I have a major weakness for pizza. Let me know if you want to go get a slice!
