Like a recipe for a great dish, it’s about having a combination of ingredients working in your favour: a couple of well-lit, authentic pictures of yourself, combined with a pinch of wit, a decent helping of honesty, and generous servings of thoughtfulness, individuality, and attention to detail.
These three examples reflect the more common online dating personalities: the thoughtful romantic, the witty comedian and the spontaneous adventurer.
While each of the sample profiles below is specific to a gender, the elements of each profile remain the same regardless of whether the user is male or female.
The Thoughtful Romantic The one thing I am most passionate about: taking care of others, helping people, and making people smile.
Yes – I know that sounds cheesy – but I try really hard to brighten the day of everyone I meet, even if that’s just by asking a cashier how they are or holding the door open for someone.
I try to always think of that quote by the Dalai Lama: “Be kind whenever possible.
It is always possible.” The most influential person in my life has been: My grandfather.
He lived until his 90s and was beloved by everyone he met.
He gave me my curious nature and taught me to always think of others first.
He and my grandmother were married for over 60 years until he died, and he always said she was the most precious and important part of his life.
