Even though a dating matchmaker will do most of the heavy lifting when looking for your rib mate, you still have to explain yourself before the process begins. You have to create a decent and honest description that sells who you are, your interests, and what you are looking for without being overbearing.
Here are some simple tips that will help you prepare the perfect dating profile and ensure that you attract and interact with the right people from your efforts.
Ask Your Close Friends for Help
Writing an honest description of yourself without exaggerating or glossing over some strengths and weaknesses is hard. You can get a more practical description from close friends or family who has had the chance to observe you from a distance for years. Get a couple of friends to describe you then summarize their key point into a simple and straightforward profile.
Always Use a Photo
Photos are a great way to showcase the person behind the description long before matchups. Posting a picture is the first step to unveiling yourself. While putting your best photos forward is tempting, it is wiser to go for regular images that capture you doing what you love most. Instead of organizing an exclusive photoshoot, go for pictures that:
- Show you doing something you love, for instance playing the guitar, cooking, riding a bike or mowing the lawn
- Don’t go for unique photos that might give an illusion of who you are not. For instance, don’t go for one holiday photos from three years ago just because it looks great and you rarely go on holiday
- Ensure that the pictures are up to date. If you must upload an old photo to your album, ensure that you explain why it is so crucial in the description
Getting the first matchup isn’t hard. The tough part is converting it into a friendship or a real romantic relationship. Telling nothing but the truth increases your chances of making strong first impressions since you won’t have to pretend to impress.
Avoid white lies or misleading information. It doesn’t matter how boring you think you are. That is who you must describe in your profile. The better option is working on fixing those imperfections so that you don’t have to lie anymore.
Any matchmaker relies on your honest profile to identify the perfect people who might be interested in you. A good profile increases your chances of success tenfold. You should also go for a reliable dating matchmaker who also assigns an experienced assistant to help you get your rib mate faster.
