The definitive guide to crafting a great dating bio!
What’s in a Profile?
We think, everything! It is a very critical part of your account, second only to your picture.
Here’s how you can jazz it up:
1. Your Description:
A short and effective description of your positive attitude and interests.
Should NOT be incomplete, have profanity, describe your physical attributes or qualities sought in a partner.
Example: “I open up pretty fast. A passionate traveller especially road trips and backpacking. I love dancing, ballroom is my favourite! But terribly bad at it, more like I am getting an electric shock :). High on life as well as emotions. Optimistic and highly positive. Love movies, and I may require more tissues than you while watching a film.”
2. The Profile Picture:
- It should mainly have you, or at the most pet(s).
- Should NOT be gym selfies, group pictures & long shots
- Should be clear and of a high resolution.
Your primary profile picture should ideally be a solo-picture of yourself. Steer clear from selfies unless they look like this one! 🙂
If you’re a pet lover be sure to show it! This is sure shot method to get fellow pet lovers to notice you! 🙂 Even a great shot showing your love for the outdoors. This lets people know that you’re the adventurous type.
Pictures that show your interests are generally well-received. So if you’re a dancer, painter, or even someone who runs marathons, show us! Having said that, gym selfies are a strict no-no!
The sooner you paint a picture of yourself, the faster a person can connect with you!
Bonus: Message Response
At Floh you’re assured of a fantastic response rate to the messages you send and it all begins with the first message! Here are some simple tips to maximise the responses your messages get :
- Read the other person’s profile.
- Write something with a query. It’s easier to respond to and keeps the banter going.
- Don’t write an essay; a sentence or two is fine.4. Avoid talking “lyK dis”. It is a turn off for many people.
- Do not copy – paste messages. It never works!
Example : “Hi Tara, I enjoyed reading your profile. What caught my attention the most was your 7 scuba dives and the fact you do it every year:). I’ve been planning to start diving as well, any tips and recommendations on where to start?”
Example: Hey Rahul, I am a fellow addict of Modern Family. In fact I binge watched the first 3 seasons! Are you done with all the seasons? Let’s meet to find out each others favourite characters :).
