Making A Good Dating Profile - What Not To Do

Here Are Some Guidelines On How NOT To Make Your Dating Profile


Do not use photos taken with a flash!

Exhausting online research shows that photos with flash age your face by approximately seven years. And don’t include alcohol, group shots of friends, or a hastily photoshopped-out ex boyfriend or girlfriend. Have several professional photos done of yourself exclusively to use for your online dating presence as this is the most important factor in meeting somebody and that's being attracted to them. 

Do not use outdated photos in your profile or leave them archived

Generally dating profile photos should be updated once a month to acheive the best possible results but don't let them go longer than 12 months as they begin to deceive other people into thinking you look that way now. Keep your profile images as updated as possible just like you would on your Facebook profile. The biggest reason first dates don't lead to second dates is "unmet expectations". Don't let that happen to you by having an old photo ruin your first date.

Never mention your ex boyfriend or girlfriend in your profile

This looks bad on many levels as the other people looking at your profile are thinking this could be them and will pass right over your profile faster than you can say "ABC". Mentioning your ex boyfriend or girlfriend suggests you're not ready for a new relationship and shouldn't be using Dateinsea.com anyway. If you're divorced/separated with children, use the drop-down menu to reveal that. Honest is always the best policy when meeting and dating new people, remember that important fact above all. 

Write a shopping list of what kind of person you are looking for and be as detailed as possible.

"I'm looking for someone who's tall, funny, intelligent, kind, loyal, romantic, sociable..." For readers, they're both dull to read and incredibly daunting. Instead, send out a request for company. "I'd love to meet someone with whom to explore far-flung places," or "Dining alone is getting dull. Join me?" Or "I love to travel to places by the beach and go swimming in the ocean, would you ever like to go?" Things of this nature will get you a date quickly as it raises hopes for adventure and intrigue with another person. 

Never be intimidated by "dos and don'ts" lists like these

Just upload a brief profile and several nice professional and updated photos then get started at looking around other people profiles. You can always tweak things later. It's good to look around for an hour or so and then come back in 8 hours and repeat. Do the same for a couple days to find out the best time to get online and get quick responses. Don't forget to regularly update your profile like it's your Facebook page. Doing this alone keeps you active on the site and leads to more matches, so see your profile as a work in progress. Constantly add new likes, photos of things you like, videos and update the extensive match details found in Dateinsea.com This will help you find somebody who likes the same things as you and hopefully find your future boyfriend, girlfriend, husband or wife.

Good luck and happy dating on Dateinsea.com everyone!
