5 Tips to Make Your Adult Dating Site Profile Sizzle
What do you think about this profile for an adult dating site?
Hi my name is Linda and I haven’t dated much since my divorce so I’m really new at this. My body is pretty good for a middle-aged woman with three kids. I’m looking for fun with a really hot guy. I don’t have a picture yet, I’ll post it as soon as I find one that looks good. If you’re a really hot guy looking for a good time, contact me.
Pretty lame, huh? Once you’ve registered for an adult dating site, filling out your profile is one of the first things you’ll be asked to do. The better your profile, the more responses you’re likely to get. Here are 5 tips that Linda should have read before creating her profile.
Photographs are Necessary
There’s simply no acceptable excuse for not posting photographs with your profile. It’s been shown that profiles with accompanying pictures will get up to ten times more responses than a profile without one. If you don’t know how to upload your picture, many sites offer step by step instructions, and it’s really not that hard to do. It would be better for you to have pictures ready to upload before you even register. Consider including a couple of provocative photos; they don’t have to be nude unless you prefer it that way.
Create an Attention-Grabbing Title
The title is like a headline, advertising your presence on the site. Put some thought into creating a short, scroll-stopping headline for your profile. Don’t just say ‘hi’, it’s too boring and won’t cause people to want to click on the profile to find out more. Your title should make them want to read your profile. Linda would have been better served with something like ‘Older Women Make Better Lovers’ or ‘Get Erotic with Me’; almost anything would be more successful than ‘Hi’.
Make Your Profile Descriptive and Honest
Your profile is important; don’t just write it off the top of your head. Spend some time creating a profile interesting enough that people will want to get to know you better. The more complete your profile, the more likely it is to get the responses you’re hoping for. Include more than just your age, height and hair color. Mention sexual preferences if you’d like, but don’t come on too strong. Keep it teasing and flirty to arouse the curiosity of anyone who might be reading it. Above all, be honest and truthful about who you are and what you’re looking for.
Use Common Sense and Stay Safe
Although most sites have methods in place to protect their members, it never hurts to exercise caution when initialing dealing with strangers. Don’t put private contact information in your profile. There’s a time and place for exchanging contact information, but it needn’t be available to anyone who happens up on your profile. This also applies to people you may meet in adult chat rooms. Be smart about who you decide to share your personal information with.
Your profile should reflect your personality. The most successful experiences on any adult dating site starts with a great profile. It should be upbeat, entertaining, informative and alluring. Don’t say you have a great sense of humor; show it off with witty writing. Don’t tell them you’re sexy, show it! Use words that cause people to think, like ‘imagine this’ or ‘think about it’. State your preferences and be clear about what you’re looking for. Take your time writing your profile and have fun with it. When you finish, read it out loud. Does it sound like someone you’d like to get to know better? If it does, you know you’ve got a winner. Now is when the fun really begins!
