We frequently get requests for help from Plenty of Fish (see our review on POF) and Match (our review on Match) members for advice on making their online dating profiles more appealing.Typically, the alarm bells start clanging as soon as we see their profile taglines: 90% of these taglines are either typical (overused and boring) or slightly needy.This headline tells users you’re new in town, or have a good story to tell.Plus, it creates a bit of mystery about you and the people who want to know more about you will reach out!Here’s what search results look like on Millionaire Match: See how that headline is the first thing you see?It’s the same on POF: Now we’re not going to make any snarky comment about these headlines (but seriously, they’re awful, don’t use them).
A nice quantifiable return on attention invested goes a long way toward getting her to check you out, and as long as you deliver with a quality profile, you’ll have a happy girl on your hands. First, it presents the girl with a third party endorsement of you. So you’ve been single for awhile and wanting to fall in love. Don’t take anything too personal and enjoy yourself.
Fill in the blank with your current location and you’ve got yourself a pretty intriguing headline.
This is a great headline to use if you recently moved to a new city because it immediately opens up the conversation.
You’ve made the decision to try online dating and it’s time to start creating your profile.
When you start building your profile, you’ll notice on some sites there will be an option or space for a “headline.” The headline section of your dating profile is similar to the headline in a news article or blog post.
