Online dating is a minefield, and if you’ve used dating apps, you’ll know that writing a profile for yourself can be a daunting task.
Somewhere between an anonymous love letter and CV, a dating profile is designed to cast its romantic (cyber) net as wide as possible.
But a good dating profile is difficult to write and people are often uncomfortable talking about themselves. As a result, most online dating profiles are a collection of cliches, text-speak and exclamation marks.
Dating sites are full of “genuine, easy-going, sensitive” people who “love laughing” (does anybody hate it?) and “enjoy evenings out and evenings in”.
Everybody has something fascinating to say about themselves, yet somehow 90% of all dating profiles read almost identical.
We get it, writing about yourself is hard, but that shouldn’t stop you from going on great dates.
