The stigma is gone -- and don’t listen to anyone who disagrees. Today, my clients zip their credit cards to the tune of anywhere around 0 to 0 (though I spill 144 pages of easy, actionable advice in my new book, for those on a budget). To be completely corny and completely honest, these sites and apps can help you find the most important person in your life -- and they all require some sort of profile (yes, even a series of photos counts).That goal alone, though, can be paralyzing, giving even writers writers’ block and above all making the majority of profiles…let’s just say lacking the personality they so desperately need.
Online dating is like advertising: Know your ideal audience and target them by positioning yourself to be as appealing as possible.
You’ve got your sweatpants on, ordered enough Thai for two but only for one, and there’s a bottle of open booze somewhere in the room -- you must be single on Valentine’s Day. And I’m probably doing the exact same thing, with one big difference: instead of crying my way through…er, I mean dry-eyed watching a cheesy romcom, I’ve got my computer open, and I’m working overtime.
Such is the life of an online dating profile ghostwriter.
So you’re new to the online dating game and you’re finding writing an effective dating profile is trickier than you expected.
You’re trying to master the art of displaying your confidence without showing off.
