Here’s an example that really works:“I am a rocket scientist. And after mastering Italian, I became an international super spy. But I do like a good martini and I got a B in my 5th grade science class. Bumble mainly attracts women in the 25-35 age range who are intelligent and successful.Right now, I’m yachting my way across the Caribbean, stealing top-secret information, and sipping martinis… Message me for more straight talk, and I’ll send you FB links, photos of science fair trophies, and much MUCH more…”Surfer. It’s been marketed as a “woman-friendly” alternative to Tinder, so you definitely want to keep your profile classy to be successful on this app.And the clock is ticking – she’s only got 24 hours to “like” you.
Such is the life of an online dating profile ghostwriter.
Yes, you heard me -- I craft other people’s online dating pages for Tinder, Ok Cupid, Our Time, you name it.
Well, we actually track their performance while sending openers, handling the back-and-forth messages and even setting up dates for our clients! )There are 100s of online dating sites and apps out there, but what reels in the ladies on Tinder can torpedo your chances on Bumble.
So we’re not only giving you incredible profile examples you can use, we’re also telling you which dating site or app they work best on.
Write the wrong thing, and you’re doomed to fail, with your empty inbox serving as a constant reminder that your profile’s problematic.
On the other hand, when you write a compelling profile, you can watch messages from high-quality women pile up in your inbox, and fill your dating calendar like clockwork. How do we know our profiles really attract beautiful women?
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.
On apps that don’t require much writing Don’t try to summarize yourself in something the length of a tweet or two. Use something that you’re actually interested in and turn it into a tweet length, one-liner, or quick story -- think upbeat or even funny. Don’t have expectations, put your phone away, and don’t hype dates to the point of nervousness.
“I sing Bob Dylan in the shower and Robyn in the car” or “I lived in a houseboat for three months…until it sank. I just moved to dry land.)” or even a quote from your favorite TV show (Tom Haverford from Parks and Recreation is a personal favorite: “When life gives you lemons, you sell some of your grandma’s jewelry and go clubbing”) says something about you and helps spark conversation. Bad dates are good stories (that happen to help you learn something about yourself), and remember: it only takes one good date...
You can get away with more exaggerated humor and funny/cocky attitude on Tinder than you can on other apps and dating sites.
