Review-Weekly has collected information from OK Cupid, E-Harmony and Wired to create this nifty cheat sheet for optimizing your dating profile.
The advice for women is wonderfully specific. Mentioning London or Radiohead among your interests will help you entrance the man of your dreams, apparently. So will talking about hiking, surfing and yoga. If you can honestly describe yourself as physically fit, perceptive, optimistic, funny, passionate and ambitious your inbox should be a busy place. Smile into the camera in your profile photo, and include pics with your pets or travel photos. To turbocharge your results, include a flirty selfie with a bit of cleavage.
Men who want to boost their response rate among women should choose unsmiling profile photos where they’re gazing away from the camera, but they should also show off a bit of chest and cuddle a puppy or two. Successful men include words like sweet, thoughtful, ambitious and spontaneous in their profiles. Everyone should be on the lookout for the most common dating profile lies, as well. Outdated photos are common, and people often fudge a little on the numbers when giving their heights and incomes. Have a look at the infographic to see if you can find ways to tweak your profile for better results.
