Once you have your profile picture up and ready to go, it’s time to fill out your personal information. Most dating sites will have options for you to list your name, age, sex, location, and a multitude of other things, including information about who you are as a person. You might be radically political or against some rights movement, but keep in mind that you aren’t creating this profile for yourself. You’re making it as a tool to help you get women, so it’s important to focus more on what you’re saying. Girls are easily offended and will avoid you entirely if you’re too opinionated from the get-go. So, here are a few things to be cautious about when making your profile.
Stay Away From Politics
First of all, don’t list your political opinions. If she wants to know you more after viewing your profile, then you can discuss it with her. There’s no reason to have her first impression of you be about your deep devotion to a political platform that might upset her. Especially if your view clashes with a popular view in the country, stay away from it. It might be important to you, but it probably isn’t as important as getting a date, so just omit it.
Avoid Religion, Too
Second, don’t talk too much about your religion. It’s all fine and dandy if religion is a deciding factor on whether or not you want to be with someone, but there is a line. If your religious views are too radical, keep them to yourself until later. If she goes onto your profile and sees you talking fire and brimstone, she’s probably just going to close that tab and check out some other guys. There’s no quicker way to seem completely mental than to rant about religion on something as open as your online dating profile.
Keep Some Things to Yourself
Last, don’t admit to doing anything you shouldn’t be, recreationally or otherwise. She doesn’t want to hear right from the start about your smoking adventures or how you drink five days a week. If that’s who you are, just don’t let her know for now. You have all the time in the world to let her know. Think of it like an interview – you wouldn’t go in and plop yourself down in front of a potential employer and start talking about your drug habits. Would you? If you wouldn’t do it in an interview, don’t do it on your dating profile.
Getting an “about me” section started on your profile can be tricky to do, and it’s hard to make it compelling. A good thing to do is to talk about some of your less offensive interests – vague things that she can relate to like drawing or watching movies. This is just a brief overview for her of you as a person, and she’s making all her judgments based on that. Give her a good reason to contact you in your description, and all the other stuff that you omitted, can come out later.
