Here are a few samples from dating profiles to show you what's possible, but remember the options are endless. Information is repackaged in a more dynamic way and spiced up with interesting anecdotes. Each online dating profile is individually crafted to best reflect your personality and intentions, whether you're fun, serious, quirky…
The more you share, the more I have to work with!
Brandon was a serious, straightforward man with a lot to offer. On consideration of his intentions, what he'd written and the type of woman he was looking for, I rewrote his profile with that in mind.
BRANDON - BEFORE
You would probably like my hardworking personality, my physical qualities, my strength and persistence, my intelligent and ruthless pursuit of knowledge, my stability in life (self employed a decade, home owner), my stubbornness, my incessant dedication to friends and family, my silliness, my interest in travel and other qualities.
BRANDON - AFTER
If I had to choose one word to describe myself, it would be to say I’m dedicated - be it to my family and friends, my career or my passions. My loved ones ground me and I happily go that extra mile to show how much I care. I’m dedicated to a career I really enjoy that, for over a decade, has allowed me to stay true to my relentless pursuit of knowledge and afforded me stability in the form of a home. I’m dedicated to discovering new places and make time for travel on a regular basis. This could mean a weekend road trip on my motorcycle or a longer expedition to a distant land. But don't be fooled - I don't take myself too seriously. I'm equally dedicated to a healthy dose silliness and spontaneity - a surefire recipe for whole-hearted fun…just ask my Bolivian cycling companions!
Melanie's profile didn't require much change. Though she provided lots of detail about her interests, the text was choppy and disconnected. My job was to get her noticed with a hook and follow through in a way that would make her fun personality shine.
MELANIE - BEFORE
About me: I feel very fortunate to say that I truly enjoy my career in healthcare. I'm outgoing and active- I love dining out with friends, checking out new restaurants and interesting places in the city. If there's a great glass of red wine involved.. or two... I'm in! ;) I definitely enjoy getting out of the city as well- going to cottage country is a must for me in the summer! Picking up my passport and exploring other countries through adventure-type travel is also a current love of mine (most recently Italy on my bike!) I like to keep fit through a variety of activities, including spinning/yoga/ weight training and cycling in the summer. This winter I enjoyed learning to snowboard (with a few un-foreseen adventures ;)) I also have an appreciation for the quieter moments- coffee and a newspaper on a Sunday morning, perhaps still cuddled up in bed, or out for brunch.
MELANIE - AFTER
Despite being horizontal on the slopes during my recent snowboarding adventures, I can guarantee that I’m anything but a couch potato! Year round I enjoy the best of urban life and the great outdoors. This includes anything from discovering a new neighbourhood restaurant and reading the weekend newspaper at the local coffee house, to enjoying a spontaneous cottage weekend getaway, long distance cycling and globetrotting. A recent trip to Italy was a dream come true. Not only was it the perfect chance to explore a beautiful country by bike, but the ideal place to indulge in delicious wine and tasty meals – all in the interest of recovery of course!
