And this is why your dating profile is not getting action

So you gave online dating a shot but still haven’t met anyone. Perhaps it’s your profile that is keeping your potential soulmate away. Hopefully you aren’t guilty of these online dating faux pas.


  1. Too cliche.  Is your profile a little too cliche. Don’t limit your profile to the regular I am seeking someone who enjoys long walks on the beach. Truly express what your genuine interests are. Rather than stating you love fine dining, list some of your favorite restaurants. The more details you provide of things you like, the more likely you will attract a better potential match.
  2. You are saying what you want but not who you are. Rather than listing a list of demands of what you want in your future mate, try listing what you value and why it’s important to you. So for instance rather than saying must be educated, list your academic accolades and why education is important to you.  
  3. Your photos suck. Ok this sounds harsh but it’s seen way too many times. If your photos are old, outdated, or simply only selfies your photos are BORING. Incorporate pictures of you out and about doing some of your favorite hobbies.
  4. Your profile is too long. Ok we know we stated provide more details. However you don’t want a long wordy profile that people quickly stop reading. Remember keep it short and sweet!
