With this is mind it’s good to use ‘buzz words’ that stand out, for example place names, film titles, football teams…whatever will make someone stop and linger on your profile.
Giving your profile a headline is the perfect chance to make your profile distinctive.
So you’ve signed up for a dating site like Plenty Of Fish, thought long and hard about your profile, and selected just the right pictures to demonstrate what a great catch you are.
But there’s one area that’s still stressing you out: More specifically, coming up with one of your own. If you’re just hanging out on OKCupid or Christian Mingle, then you’re one of the lucky dudes who don’t need to stress over their headline.
When you first sign up with match.com, you’ll be asked to give some basic info about yourself.
You’ll be able to pick the words that best describe you, and give others an idea of the things you’re interested in, be it eating out, dancing or volunteering.
You’ll also be asked questions about the type of person you’re looking to date.
The answers you give will help people to connect with you, whether that’s through advanced searches, or by seeing your profile as one of their daily matches or the matches we recommend to each member.
If you’re interested in travelling, why not take this opportunity to discuss your favourite destination, or the most amazing things you’ve discovered around the globe?
Here’s what search results look like on Millionaire Match: See how that headline is the first thing you see?
It’s the same on POF: Now we’re not going to make any snarky comment about these headlines (but seriously, they’re awful, don’t use them).
After you’ve filled in your basic information, you can add more detail in the “A few words about me” and “More About Me” sections of your profile.
Use the latter to describe the things you’re passionate about such as your interests and hobbies and your favourite places to visit.
