Finding Your Match

By Tash Fearon

As an online dating assistant at A Million Matches, I have surfed waves of profiles and have seen the good, the bad and the ugly. Finding a love match is one of the most important things we do, and can cause some of our biggest stress. Here are a few tips I’ve learned about one of today’s most important dating tools…

Online profiles are the standing bridge between you and your match. Be sure that your bridge is secured enough to get over to the other side of dating. If your profile isn’t bridging the gap, it may be time for a little reconstructing.

Consider your profile photos. Technically speaking, each photo should be clear and large enough to see without squinting. People like viewing quality photos; they show personality. Having a variety of good photos allows potential matches to invest more of their time on your profile. After all, profile photos are often the first place of interest. Stand out! Don’t just say what you like doing, show it. If you’re a world traveler, post a photo of your travels. It’s also in your best interests to invest in at least two recent quality photos. Putting in the time and effort for a great photo says you’re serious about your search for love.

Be specific. It’s difficult to be interested in vague profiles. Engage potential matches with meaningful information about yourself. Instead of listing your qualities in single words, use sentences. Write about what you do with your time, work and leisure.

Be honest about the type of person you’re looking for. It will help attract the right match. A more detailed profile assists others to better determine a good match.

Before posting, be sure to check for proper spelling. An accidentally misspelled word makes your profile look sloppy.

It’s safe to say that online dating has virtually become the best meeting place for those looking for love. (Pun intended.) Either way, on or off, finding love takes work, and hard work can pay off. Use your profile to show your personality. Most importantly, have fun with it.
