Check if you didn’t make the following mistakes when you built your personal profile…

Everyone wants to write a great dating profile, but it can be difficult to describe yourself. Dating experts from tendermeets.com found out the things that you need to kick out of your profile once and for all.

Grammatical errors

You might think that it is not a big deal if there are some grammatical errors on your profile, but actually, it has some importance. Indeed, when you make grammatical errors, other singles will automatically unconsciously see you as an uneducated person. You will look like someone with no culture, no intelligence, and no maturity at all. So unless you are looking for someone immature and ignorant, try to watch your grammatical errors.

Don’t Say General Things That Mean Nothing.

The idea of the profile description is to let other singles know who you are in order for them to decide if there is a possibility for a match or not. Consequently, you should not be too vague. Don’t say things like “I like to have good moments with other people” or “I love to learn interesting things” because it is something so obvious that anyone could say it. Instead, explain what makes you different from others: what are your interests, your special characteristics.

Fake Information

The biggest mistake you could make would be to give fake information about yourself. Indeed, whether you are lying about your height, your weight, your profession, or your situation, people will eventually find out about it when they will meet you offline, and they will be very disappointed. You will most probably lose all their trust and all their interest.

Super Personal Information

This mistake could be the most dangerous for you. A lot of people will see your profile appear, so the last thing you want to do is to give information that is too personal. Don’t reveal your worst secret or your worst weakness to total strangers because it would be weird. Don’t give your address either because it could be dangerous. And also, if you don’t want everyone to be able to spy your private life, don’t give your social network account and don’t reveal your full name.

The List of Specific Demands

When singles put a list of specific demands on their profile description, it will usually be a turn off for a lot of people. Indeed, who are you to request all these things? Are you completely perfect? Also, are you wanting to meet interesting new human beings or are you simply selecting items in a supermarket? Another problem with the fact of having a list of specific demands is that some singles might be discouraged because they don’t match some criteria so they might ignore completely your profile.

Photos With Exes

Putting pictures with your ex is another huge turn-off. Who wants to have to deal with someone who is not over his/her ex? Putting a picture with your ex is the best way to show that you are not over him/her, and it will disturb immediately any singles who will see your profile.

Saying How “Good” You Are

People simply don’t like arrogance in general, and they prefer people who are humble. So if you want to irritate the other members, the best way to do it is by starting boasting about how good you are and complimenting yourself. Of course, you don’t have to be negative about yourself but try to avoid boasting.

Details of Past Relationships

First of all, it is weird to explain your private life like this publicly. Secondly, it might be an indication that you are not over your past relationships, which is something that we want to avoid at all costs.

Negativity About Dating

Some people are almost aggressive in their profile description, explaining how they hate dating and how everyone is “mean” or “ill-intentioned.” If you do that, people will wonder: why are you doing online dating then? Isn’t it a bit contradictory? Also, when you go on a date, you want to have a good time, and you want a pleasant experience. The last thing you want is to spend time with a negative person who will just bring you down.
