Author, Online Dating and Netiquette Expert, CEO of Cyber-Dating Expert, Media Personality, and Author of the Bestseller, "The Perils of Cyber-Dating: Confessions of a Hopeful Romantic Looking for Love Online." It appeared that 80 percent of the audience had tried online dating, yet they were filled with pain and frustrated with the process. Shirley90210 or a bunch of numbers that don't mean anything won't catch his eye.
Something wasn't working and they were all-ears to hear how to improve their profiles to find a meaningful relationship. The key to creating a successful profile name is to be descriptive.
More often-than-not, they'd ask why I chose the name, if I went to music school and what my favorite song was to play on the piano.
By creating this fun and flirty screen name, it made it easy for someone to start a conversation.
I've found from working on profiles for the past two decades, that the magic number of photos to post in your profile is three to five.
If you post anything less, a potential date might think you're not serious or might be hiding something.
Anything more, I recommend posting it on your social media sites such as Instagram and Facebook.
By posting a handful of photos, it's enough to pique his or her curiosity, while leaving them wanting to see more of you.Of these photos, the primary shot needs to be a close-up, smiling, wearing an outfit with a solid color such as red for women and blue for men.Red is my favorite color for women as it's the color of passion, love and romance.It also happens to be the color of the stop sign, so a man's natural instinct will be to stop to see your profile photo.Which photos should you ditch on your dating profile? A man has a split second to decide whether to write you or take a pass.Selfies don't make you look your best and posting a photo with your puppy dog will make him or her assume you sleep in bed with your four-legged friend. They'll assume there's no room for them in your life. If he can't figure out immediately which girl he'd be going on a date with, he'll move to the next profile. My recommended word count its 125 - 150 words on a traditional dating profile and two sentences on a mobile app.
