Anyone who logs into the site can usually read your entire profile, and anyone who grabs a screenshot will have it forever. Because believe me, they are there creeping around on online dating site.
Most of them are probably the harmless, garden-variety awkward types who think a one-liner about your “hot bod” is exactly what a woman wants to hear.
” But if you’re the one writing it about yourself, it pretty much just feels super awkward.
Basically, you’re trying to present yourself to complete strangers in a way that’s positive but not braggy, open but not overly vulnerable, attractive but not vain, confident but not cocky, etc. And of course, you have to select the perfect photos to match, since statistically your cover photo is what makes people actually “click on you” or not.
And when someone presses for why I’m not OK Cupid-ing or Tinder-ing or EHarmonizing my way through these single years, I have also learned to articulate a few reasons.
So if you’re active on an online dating site, you generally find yourself having to sort through yes’s and no’s every single day. And yes of course, it’s awesome and a total honor to have people interested in you.It took me awhile to admit that to myself and to other people, mostly because I thought it would be great if it could “work”.But I’m now totally ok with that fact that it’s not for me.But most dating sites don’t let you off the hook with just your age, occupation, alma mater, and hometown.Oh no, profiles or “personal inventories” can take hours to fill out and write.
