You can’t step into the octagon with a B-team profile if you want to score dates with top quality women.
The above example is written for a site like Match.com, where longer profiles are the norm.
You want to highlight your most attractive traits, but you want to do it in a way that keeps her attention and sets you apart from the competition.
And the entire first paragraph is packed full of attraction triggers.
By the time she’s done reading it, she’s learned that you are adventurous, you’re in good enough physical condition to windsurf, you love to travel, and you’re financially able to swing a fabulous getaway – all without having to write “I love to travel” or “I’m adventurous, physically fit, and financially stable”.
Open with an exciting travel story or a humorous anecdote that hints at your personality.
In this example, the first line of this profile immediately gives her something pleasurable to visualize, so within the first couple words she’s already imagining her tropical vacation with you, filled with warm blue water and cute sea turtles.
For online dating sites, a good rule of thumb is keep the length of your profile down to about 300 words or less.
