Over the past week, I have been scouring through tons of Male Plenty of Fish online profiles.
Not that I’m checking out guys or anything (I love the ladies) but I was trying to look for some examples of great male dating profiles.
When you’re online dating, you should think of your profile as you would your résumé.
It’s the first thing women are going to see, and they’re going to use it to determine if they want to hire you for the job of hookup, date, boyfriend, or husband.
Selecting a Username A good username should tempt potential partners to open your profile and learn more, Donaldson says, so you want it to stand out.
Using just your name implies that you didn't put a lot of thought into it; plus, it's generic.
To do this, I browsed through as many guys as I could and anyone that had 10 or more favorites, I jotted down in my spreadsheet for later analysis.
First off, I would just like to say that finding male profiles with more than 10 favorites was quite a difficult task. Just a rough calculation, I’d say that for about every thirty male online profiles I visited, only one would have 10 or more favorites.
I hope one day I can pass down those qualities to a family of my own, and it’s why I work so hard today.
I thought of that and yes some looked like they were borderline male models, but not all of them.
I’d say half of these guys were average looking at best.
Schreffler also advises against usernames that might make you look like a show-off. When in doubt, Schreffler says: "Choose one or two key facts [about yourself], and insert them into your headline.
"The purpose of a tagline is to create an icebreaker for users to reach out to you," Donaldson says. This works, because, again, you're keeping them guessing." Summarizing Yourself Boooooring. When describing yourself, be specific and avoid cliches, too.
