Knowing what kind of relationship or interaction you are looking for before you carefully craft your online dating profile will save you time by ensuring you only post your profile at the most eligible and suitable dating site(s).
The meat of your online dating profile is the "about me" section, which is called various things on different dating sites.
"A handle (or username) is the name other members of the dating site will use as your "name".
Peruse a couple of dating sites and you'll quickly see what I mean: "I'm the one your mother warned you about," is still a favorite after more than a decade of use, and many online daters steer clear of anyone using this tagline because of it. Try for thought-provoking, unusual and/or intriguing one-liners.
No matter what its title, most online dating sites will require a paragraph or two from you in essay format, describing who you are and what you are looking for.
If this part of the process seems too daunting to you, or if you'd rather not invest the time, sign up at one of the online speed dating sites instead, as most don't use essay introductions in their profiles.
Quickly brainstorm what you'd like to share in the essay portion of your dating profile on a piece of paper.
Hobbies, interests, work, and family are all things to consider (just make sure to tell the truth).
