Making a connection
A lot has changed since online dating first became popular in the 1990s and oughts. Who doesn’t love Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks anonymously bonding over email in You’ve Got Mail? But online dating profiles are a bit more complex now, and there’s been a lot of ink spilled on how to craft the perfect online dating profile (with the studies to back it up)—to your great benefit!
Your profile is a lot like a resume, but with selfies. It’s important to represent yourself in the best possible light. It’s also important to use unique words that show your personality and allow people to get to know you a little bit better by just reading your profile. Common descriptors like happy, nice, and caring may take you one step closer to a “swipe left.”
So, of course, we’re here to help you out with more interesting, thoughtful word choices about yourself. Read on for some suggestions that may help you express your personality shine even brighter.
Disclaimer: only use these word suggestions if they are right for you. Lying in your online profile is a no-no.
