I’d reached the stage where a lot of my friends had started to settle down but had never been convinced by online dating. To be honest, I wouldn’t have known where to start. I found PenMyProfile just by searching for dating tips and the whole concept of someone sorting it all out for me really appealed. Now, three months in I’ve been on some great dates, no hassle and I’m actually pretty enjoying it!
I’d been online for ages and was basically just meeting a load of wrong uns. I’d reached the stage where I’d just close down my online cos I was sick of it, but then end up going back on to check messages. A friend told me about PMP’s Full Works package and I just went for it. Then, I met my Sam! It was literally love at first sight and the best bit is we’re now engaged and have our little baby on the way.
I was sick of waiting for Mr Right and just seemed to have bad date after bad date. A couple of mates had met some nice guys online, so I put my profile on but again was just underwhelmed at the men I seemed to be attracting – they all seemed to be the same type. Then I came to PenMyProfile for help, who recommended the Spit and Polish package to bring out the qualities in my personality, which I wanted to find in a man.
“Now, a few months down the line, I’ve found a funny, fit, engaging chap that ticks all the boxes. Watch this space!
When I walked into the bar to meet P on our first date and he’d hidden the bottle of wine – as a joke – I knew I’d met someone off beat, special and perfect for me. I’d had the usual share of bad dates, good dates and attempted relationships from my online dating, but it wasn’t until I turned to PenMyProfile who edited my profile, that I started meeting those special people that really got me – and that’s how I met P, or should I say, my husband.
Use software, a careful re-read or a keen-eyed friend to ensure your profile has no spelling or grammatical errors. Paying attention at this stage shows you are taking dating seriously and what your mum says is true - first impressions do last.
Don't use a crude username or tagline on your dating profile. Even if you're only after a bit of fun, you don't want to scare people off.
Don't talk about your ex, baggage is best avoided at this early stage and any tricky past relationships are best explained in person when you know each other better.
It seems like a no-brainer, but avoid using phrases such as ‘Pick me’ and ‘Are you the one?’ as you might sound desperate.
Make your dating profile easy to read and entice more views by structuring your text into short paragraphs with simple sentences.
Yes, it is. And everyone writing a dating profile thinks that, but don't let on! It will make you sound indecisive, not sure of who you are, and a little samey.
It is better to hear from one perfect match than ten who tick none of your boxes. Quality not quantity should be your watchword when trying to find someone compatible.
Ask a mate to help you tackle your initial dating profile writer's block and list your best qualities for you. You can then build your profile around this.
Don't start spouting cliches or use long words just for the sake of your dating profile.
