It also can work to attract someone who has similar interests with one quick zap.
We perused hundreds of dating site profiles and headlines for red flags or dullsville, so you don’t have to. There are more cringe-worthy headlines than we thought possible.
Use them at your own risk as you’re going to coming across a lot of such headlines while you’re browsing profiles.– Love walking in the rain.– Guaranteed more fun than your ex! – Down-to-earth angel seeks wings.– Can you keep up? -If FUN was a MUST then I must be the one you’re looking for.– Bad Boy Seeks Good Girl– Looking for a partner in crime.– Some will, some won’t, some do, some don’t. – Hi, I’m Miss Right, someone said you were looking for me!If they’re not satisfied with either one of them, they’re not going to even consider entering your profile.In fact, 8 out of 10 girls check out the heading first and only a couple of them go through the entire profile (this is according to surveys conducted on dating sites).If the photos don’t cut it, we generally don’t click on the person. But if we make it past the photo, skimming profiles, the first thing you'll notice is the profile tagline.This little ditty can compel us to read further, or it can cause us to roll our eyes and move on.Just as bad are those which scream of desperation, or have a rescue complex. All we did was look at some random pages of dating profiles and just pulled these typical taglines.But this is great news for OUR readers, because you are now going to stand out as a creative and clever person amongst the yawners, oddballs, and desperadoes. We had to stop ourselves, because they just went on and on.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.Truth be told, the majority of potential candidates won’t even get into your profile as they will be heavily filtering their search results according to location, age and interests.Then they’re going to scrutinize the heading and glance at the photo.
