To succeed in online dating is to have a great profile. Your profile is your first impression to anyone who might click your name. There's a saying that first impressions lasts. And with online dating you will surely want to leave a good impression.

Create a great profile page that will make anyone mail you in a heartbeat! Here is a list of tips on writing a great profile:

When choosing adjectives. Think of your top 3 character traits. Start off by using 3 adjectives that best describe your personality. This will allow the others to know you have confidence and see a small glimpse of who you are.

How you live your life. Talk about your hobbies and your job. But less focus on the job and more on what you love to do. This should be the most engaging part when you're writing your profile. It allows everyone to distinguish if you have any similar interests. And having similar interests can be a great foundation for a great relationship.

What are you looking for?

If you're looking for a serious relationship, say so.

If you're looking for casual dating, say so.

If you're looking for someone to just have fun with, say so!

People turn to online dating sites for plenty of reasons: casual dating, serious relationship and hook-ups. It is important that you let it out in the open on what you came here for. This will block the people whom you don't want approaching you.

Who are you looking for? When you describe who you want to meet, do not talk about physical appearances; like: height and body type. Don't mention their education, their hobbies and interests. You wouldn't want to seem superficial and no one wants to meet one either.

We're talking about values here! Values like: family oriented, values health and fitness, animal lover and etc...

Grammar and spelling check! Okay, it's not easy to keep track with the right use of punctuation marks and spelling. Heck, even I make mistakes! But, the purpose of your profile is to make a good impression, and having a wrong-grammar-free profile is definitely a good boost.

There are a lot of free softwares and sites that you can use to check your grammar. You may use Grammarly or hemingwayapp, or ask someone who can check it for you.

It's hard to admit it, but grammar can really make a huge difference when it comes to online dating.

With this list of tips as guide, surely, you'll be able to create a great profile! What do you think? Let us know!

I actually recently saw an old ted talk about this subject which goes into what kind of profile you should create. I personally made a few changes to the description text of my tinder profile and I did saw a increase in matches at least over the short term. It's hard to say how big of an effect it had or does changing it in general help with how many people you are shown to by the algorithm. Regardless her tips did show an improvement in her own tests also, admittedly the sample size is rather small, and I think what she's saying makes a lot of sense so I personally have no reason to doubt the findings.
