When you search for possible matches on dating sites, you will generally get
a screen that pops up with between 10 to 15 photos of people who match your
search criteria. Beside those names, you usually have some brief details about
that person. This small section is often your first and only chance to make
an impression so the details you put there are often more important than what
you include in your full profile. This is where the importance of a great title
comes into play. It is usually one of the few things that are shown in this
area so you need to pay particular attention to it if you hope to catch the
"People are strange and they can think
weird things that might not occur to you."
Writing a great title isn’t hard but it does require a little effort.
First off, you’re going to want to be creative so it stands out from the
rest. This means that you should avoid clichés. How many times have you
seen “Searching for Mr/Ms Right” or “Just looking”?
Headlines like this suggest that the person inside is boring and unoriginal,
whether they are or not. Another good way to spark interest is to ask a question
or include a call to action. You’d be surprised how many people act or
react to simple suggestions. You want something that will pique the
interest of others and get them excited about the person that they’re
about to meet so you're going to need to make an effort.
It’s also important that your title is spelled correctly. Being lax with
your grammar and spelling can suggest that you’re illiterate or lack the
motivation to take pride in what you do. Send your title through a word processor
before you publish it. Also, never use short forms such as ‘2’ for
‘to’ or ‘U’ for ‘you’ unless the sentence
just wouldn’t look proper without them. Your odds of finding the perfect
match are greatly improved when you give yourself more options and perfecting
every area of your profile is one of the best ways to do this.
I’ve reviewed profile titles in a couple of articles which you can see here
Take the comments with a grain of salt but realize that people are strange and they can think
weird things that might not occur to you. One of those people might
just be your perfect match so go out of your way to perfect your profile title
