Creating a profile: increasing your chances of success

By Garry

A well-designed profile is the key to success. The other person doesn’t see the other person live, so they evaluate the questionnaire. Here are some useful tips for creating an attractive profile.:

Photo. This is the first thing that people pay attention to, and therefore it is extremely important that it is clear and shows you at your best. You should not get carried away with Photoshop: heavily retouched photos will cause suspicions that you are hiding serious flaws.
Character traits. In your profile, you must specify a list of traits that you think are defining in your character. Do not hesitate to write about unusual interests (for example, a love of sand painting), perhaps it is for them that a kindred spirit will find you.
The purpose of dating. Someone is looking for a serious relationship by dating via the Internet, and someone wants easy flirting or friendly meetings. This is certainly worth pointing out.
Positive attitude and honesty. Do not invent something that does not exist, hide the existence of a relationship or a past marriage. But you don’t need to complain about the feeling of loneliness and helplessness either — people don’t like whiners. It is much better to focus on something positive, but not particularly embellish your character or lifestyle.

Short description. On some online dating sites, you can place a small text (about 100 characters) under your photo. Try to make your mini-resume interesting and unusual, avoid cliches and annoying quotes like “I’m hard to find and easy to lose”.
Adjust your profile periodically. Your interests may change, as may the purpose of dating. Don’t forget to update your page and add up-to-date photos.
Increase your rating. On some sites, it is enough to visit your page at least once a day to move up in the lists above others. On others, “getting to the top” will require investment, but in any case it will increase the chances of a successful acquaintance.
How to properly get acquainted on the Internet: take a note
There are several tricks that will not only help you find the right partner, but also protect you from scammers and other unpleasant individuals.

First, keep in mind that the effectiveness of partner search will increase if you register on several sites at once. Select sites based on several significant criteria: the number of registered users, the target audience, and the thoroughness of checking your profile to block unscrupulous users and scammers.

Secondly, when communicating, touch on a variety of topics: it is not necessary to talk only about work and household chores. Non-standard conversations will allow you to better learn the character of the interlocutor and his tastes, habits.

Third, it is better not to use your home or work email address for registration — they can be hacked, and this will create a lot of problems. Register a separate mailbox.

Fourth, meet a new acquaintance no earlier than after a couple of weeks of communication. This way you’ll get to know each other better and make it easier to communicate when you meet. If the user is unsettling with his persistence or seems suspicious — you can safely write to the site administrators to check it. You should do the same if you are insulted or sent intimate photos or videos without your request.

Online dating can be the beginning of a new stage in your life. Millions of users on many sites are looking for their soulmate, and many have already found it. To join the list of these lucky users, you just need to select a suitable site and click on the “Register” button — and everything will work out!

Choosing a service for a serious relationship
As we have already found out, there are many ways of dating on the Internet, but still, which of them are the most effective and reliable for finding your destiny?

We asked a representative of the LinkYou website to answer this question:

“You should not waste time registering and communicating in the service for easy flirting, if your goal is marriage. This rule requires no explanation. However, how to choose the one that is suitable for serious intentions in the variety of services? I advise you to read reviews on the Internet — this is usually enough. It is also very important how the service positions itself. For example, if its main page contains photos of hot beauties or brutal machos and promises easy, easy communication — this is not an option for serious dating.

Our website LinkYou considers professional interests to be one of the key selection criteria. Agree, this approach immediately eliminates dating lovers for an hour. The goal of our service is to help people create strong couples. The well-thought-out auto-search system allows you to choose a pair for each user based on common interests, profession, religion, and other important (and, of course, individual) parameters. There are no robots or advertising accounts on the LinkYou site — we are all for live communication! You don’t have to worry about security either: personal data is confidential, and complaints about rudeness and offers of sex are quickly processed by technical support.”
