Full Bio Online dating is the greatest invention the world has ever seen. You browse profiles, find someone you like and start a conversation.
The best way to demonstrate sincerity is to write your main bio in a loose conversational manner without trying to “big” yourself up.
This isn’t a CV; you aren’t auditioning for anyone, so don’t write it like you are trying to impress. Don’t be afraid of telling people who you are and what you love doing.
I think everyone has at some point, and imagine how often you would do this if you received 20-50 a day instead of 1 or 2 a week. Most attractive women don’t even open all of their messages simply because they can’t be bothered to sift through them all.
You have to assume that a quick glance at the thumbnails is all she is going to use to decide whether to open the message, so if your main image isn’t the single best photo you own then you are doing yourself a disservice.
No cheesy topless shots, no stuffy formal pictures and no Myspace style self-portraits either—you want a picture that shows you are a relaxed, fun person who has an active social life.
The best way to do this is to suggest moving away from the dating site to a more personal method of communication.
With regards to messaging men, don’t be overly flirtatious as that can immediately set off their BS detector.
Instead, give a man a non-sexual compliment and show interest in something from his profile.
From here you can send each other messages throughout the day and it’s a great way to have some fun.
After you have built up a little more trust you can then transition to speaking on the phone—hey, you have each other’s number anyway so it makes sense.
