Take our advice; clichés are one of the most bland, boring things you can include in your online dating profile, so leave them out wherever possible.
Here are 10 phrases your should definitely avoid using.
It could take months, even years, before you connect with Mr./Ms. In other words, keep the big picture in mind, but don’t be surprised or disappointed if things don’t work out right away. If you approach dating with similar passion and effort, you’ll have a much better chance at finding love.
That person will not likely show up five minutes after you sign up for an online dating site. I suggest that you go on each date with a combo pack of short-term realism (he/she may not be right for me, but you never know) and long-term hope (I want a serious relationship, and I know if I keep on dating, I’ll eventually meet someone wonderful). But if you’re serious about finding love, you have to put the effort into it. You would dress your best for interviews, get your résumé in order, and figure out how to make great first impressions until you land that fabulous job.
We’ve all had times where we felt we couldn’t live up to someone’s expectations and describing your ideal date so rigidly can do exactly that.
Saying you want a non-smoker with a good sense of humour is fine, but mentioning that you’d also like them to love animals, look like a catwalk model, earn millions and be passionate about sci-fi is a little too far.
If the rest of your life is filled with things that make you happy and fulfilled, you’ll have a better attitude about dating.
◊♦◊ It’s easy to forget that if you are dating for a serious relationship, you are only looking for one special person. There’s someone for everyone, and it’s amazing when you find that special someone.
All the people you go out with have too much baggage, are too needy, have major financial issues or no common interests. Besides, who wants to date a grouchy bitter person?
The truth is, accepting who you are, just the way you are, will help more than anything when it comes to finding your ideal match.
Feel proud of your hobbies and interests and convey them accurately in your online dating profile.
