One of my friends teased me, doing an impression of a Starbucks barista having to take my order, interrupting me to say, "Ma'am I really hope it works out with this guy but would you like whipped cream or not? You can tell me what you like best -- or edit however you like or tell me if I need to go walk the desert until I find my truth. I'm smart, sometimes funny, kind and positive. Anyway, I get along great with ambitious, social, authentic people so if this might be you, drop me a line. It's almost like I've started a fight with my imaginary boyfriend in my About Me section.
But I can't bring myself to fill out the profile. Then I got the idea: How about I brainstorm some sample About Me's for you all to critique. I'm 38, a writer and sometimes performer and I have a dog. I think the second one might even win an award for how horrible and stern and aggressive it sounds.
That being said, if you want to find your perfect match, you want to create a headline that is eye-catching.
Think of it as the first impression for showcasing your personality – your headline (combined with an interest in your photo) will be the first glimpses of your personality that make someone want to connect with you. We’ve put together a list of some of the best headlines online dating users are finding success with.
This phrase has become a part of our modern culture, so it’s a pretty fun (albeit obvious) one to use for your dating profile.
But, you could earn bonus points if you say what TV show you want to binge watch – that way you find someone who has similar interests!
So a week ago, I decided to activate this free trial membership someone gave me at Match.com, because I've had success there in the past -- as have some of my friends -- so I figure I'll give the site another try. I think I'm ready for a serious relationship with a great guy.
I mean seriously), and I feel like the only thing left to do in this situation is to force myself to date -- like really properly date. Besides hours of time I actually need to decompress and unwind instead of handing it over to someone who I am too kind to tell I am not interested in about 5 minutes after meeting him?
Which was so clinical and unresponsive.(And before you say anything, I know you probably think I self-sabotaged by texting him that, but I see it as I was protecting myself.
Sorry for the spam-sounding headline but I met a nice lawyer when I used that headline a year ago so why not repurpose, right? If you Google me you might be freaked out because I've written about my dating life in the New York Post and a few other places, but at my core, I care most about personal relationships and am a loving person.
And yes -- I realize you guys already told me He's Just Not That Into You Mandy, Wake the Hell Up, Dude.
