Examples Of Dating Profile Essays

It is unfortunate that so many people join dating sites but so few put a fair effort into writing a really good profile that makes them stand out from thousands of other users. I am not sure why people go through the trouble of signing up and filling all those questionnaires and then post a profile that looks like a copy of any other neutral, boring, profile full of cliches and types.

What makes any female dating profile great is the fact that it stands out from the rest of the profiles on any given online dating site. It doesn’t blend in. It’s not generic, neutral and overly politically correct. It doesn’t describe you with overused adjectives such as “intelligent, compassionate, educated, and independent” and it is free of boring statements that say nothing such as “I am as comfortable staying in as staying out.”

Rather than continue describing what a good profile is, I want to bring to your attention real examples of three actual dating profiles from on popular site that I rated for content. I commented in parentheses throughout the profiles below what I thought of them and why:

Example Dating Profile #1: Grade C+

I gave this profile a passing grade because while it’s not great, nothing about it makes it terrible.

“I have been in the ——- area for a few years now and always looking to meet new people. (This first sentence says nothing eye-catching about the woman and is very bland, and boring). I am a very hard worker and love my job. I work a lot, but I know how to balance well. I enjoy
meeting new people and going to new places. (still, nothing thought provoking or attractive) I am very spontaneous and I love the outdoors, watching movies, dancing, and traveling. (Another cliché statement that is being used by thousands of other women) A great date can be staying at home with a movie and popcorn, or a night on the town. (This statement has no purpose whatsoever). I made myself a promise a few years ago to take a vacation somewhere new, out of state, every year. I have not been disappointed yet. I would really love to see Europe. (Finally something somewhat interesting that she says about herself).

Well, that is a little about me if you are interested say
hello and we will chat. Talk to you soon!!”
***********************

Profile #2: Grade: B

This profile gets a higher grade because it reflects on the writer’s character and her personality. It’s a bit negative and has a few red flags but other than that – it’s not bad!

“100% Italian, fun loving, affectionate young lady who knows what it takes to make a relationship work. Tired of meeting BOYS who tell me what I want to hear, make and break promises, and aren’t ready for something serious. (This woman is voicing her opinion and shows her personality early on. (Great move!))

You: Honest, mature, gentleman, emotionally, mentally, financially secure (“financially secure” is a bad move in a dating profile because it’s an immediate red flag to a guy that he might be dealing with a materialistic woman.) Knows how to treat a lady, ready for a long term
relationship (this would sound a bit too eager or even desperate to most guys. First, meet a guy, then decide what you want out of him). Please……mean what you say and say what you mean!!! (that’s a good statement).
I live on the East Coast and travel to West every week for work. Being in California 4 days/week gets lonely. (This would make the reader believe that she is not looking for anyone special, but just someone to kill time with and subdue her loneliness). I am looking to meet someone in the this area and see what happens! Relocating for the right person is definitely an option. First date….not sure!!! I am willing to entertain any reasonable offer. 🙂 (good, funny, statement that shows personality and sense of humor, she should have used more of this kind of words throughout her profile). ”

*******************************

Profile #3 : Grade: A

This is one great dating profile. It consists a number of thought provoking statements right from the beginning that show a woman’s great personality and sense of humor. It’s eloquently written, it’s concise, straight and to the point! It is free of fluff and very compelling for a guy who can appreciate this type of no-nonsense attitude in a person:

“I don’t like most guys, but… I am not interested in most guys and besides perhaps that what makes those few unique individuals that I do connect with all more special. (Great, thought provoking opener that shows a woman’s engaging personality. Myself – restless, analytical, and opinionated. I am not offended by a dirty joke and can dish out one of my own. I am independent but far from being a feminist. Sarcasm is a spice of life, so bring it on. (Guys really, really like to hear that). Timeless books and movies that make you wonder for days about whose side you are on put great flavor into many of my evenings. What’s your story? What are you greatest pet-peeves and what makes you weak in your knees from joy and happiness.”

Profile #4: Grade A+ 

This last profile below gets the highest great for both the content and the creativity. It almost sounds like a poem. What I particularly like about this profile is that it shows that a woman hasn’t lost faith in true love and romance but at the same time she is also realistic. The ending of it might sound a bit on a more desperate side, but all in all – maybe it’s not such a terrible thing to sound a bit desperate for love and connection if that’s how you really feel.

“I don’t know if the world is going to run forever, but I know I’m not going to be around forever!
I don’t know if I will finally meet you to warm my heart and join for a better, happier journey, but I know I can’t stop looking for you, and can’t stop calling you in my heart…
I also don’t know what life holds for me tomorrow, but I do know that we can only get older and I feel safer to get old with you. Someone to remember the days with, and to grow with.
All profiles repeat the same. Everyone is crying out to say how good they are, how cool they are, how fun they are. But how real are you, and how content are you with your real you? I’m tired of the lies, of the fakes…I want someone real! I want my “best friend”, I think this says it all!
Maybe it’s about the right time, right place, right person… can online dating be any good? We’ll see :)”

Use the above profiles as an inspiration for your own dating profile to make it more creative and more interesting. Remember, quality single guys that you are looking to meet are more picky than others. Many of them are looking for a special connection with a special woman. If you know how to and are able to communicate through your dating profile that you are not just another average girl, it will significantly increase your chances of meeting better and more interesting men online.

Not sure how to write your online dating profile? These 10 top online dating profile examples will help.

Most guys get terrible results online. One reason is because their profile reads like a boring, dating profile shaped turd.

Let’s get started!

Self Deprecating & Funny Dating Profile Example

Ok… so let’s start:

I’d like first to apologize for the typos I might have… I must confess I’m French (I know… nobody’s perfect) and I’m pretty much new in this country (I’ve been around for 2 years).

I thought I would throw some keywords that would describe what I like to do. If you recognize yourself in some of them, I think it might be worth taking the time to keep on reading my profile. If you don’t keep on reading, I swear I won’t be upset with you. I will never know anyway 🙂

Travel, surprises, music, dancing, sports, books, last minute plans, open mind, photography, museum, craziness, spontaneity, going out (but also staying in), sharing, simplicity, respect, flip flops (yes, the sandals), down to earth (however fantasy is also very important), people, casual, word, news, work, sense of humor about yourself, awareness.

And yet another short list of things that I’m not really fond of:
– Cars (can’t tell why I put this one first…)
– Self-centered people (but, hey… Have you ever heard anybody saying “yes, yes, I am definitely self-centered.” So this one doesn’t really count!!)
– TV (even if I like one or two shows and some movies)
– Superficial people (but same problem as #2…)

In addition, if you happen to pronounce the following sentences regularly, we’re definitely increasing the chance of a good match here:
“Ok let’s give it a try”
“To be honest, I don’t know”
“I respect that”
“J’adore les escargots” ok this one doesn’t really count either… 🙂

And last (I promise), if you think that Paris is the most beautiful city in the world, I think you should tell our parents to get ready for the wedding 🙂

I am crazy, stupid, and charming.

Time for Francesca Cruz to take over, giving you a woman's perspective on this dating profile:

The French are known for being snooty, and yet this guy takes that into consideration and pokes fun at it. He has a great sense of humor and comes off as goofy but real.

He’s a guy that likes “going out” but doesn’t mind “staying in” which creates a sense of balance for a girl. He likes hitting the town, but he’s not going to be partying to the wee hours of the night all the time. His confidence comes out through his sense of humor.

But WAIT!…nooooo not a BUTT a BUT, as in this is a pretty good profile BUThe has a paramount profile problem. Paramount is such a “girly appreciated” word—let me translate to manglish: This guy is making a HUGE mistake in his profile: “Attraction Killer” Red Flag #4…

Don’t make the same mistake. Discover YOUR #1 dating profile “attraction killer” & how to fix it…

Masculine With a Sense of Humor Dating Profile Example

I live by myself, I pay my own rent, I wear socks that match and I love my mom. I am a confident, attractive & comedic person.

I do stunt work. Have you ever seen it in a movie when a hot actor has to reveal his naked ass? That’s my job. Oh, and I’m in the fitness biz, as well as back in school finishing up my pre-med reqs.

Food: I love food. Period.

Movies: Gladiator, Fight Club, Braveheart, Anchorman!

Six Things I Would Never do Without:

• Laughter/ comedy
• Exercise
• Friends
• Food
• That’s none of your business 😉

On a typical Tuesday night I am: Trying to figure out the major and minor products when 1-bromo-2-propene reacts with potassium tert-butoxide. Either that or partying like a rock star.

The most private thing I am willing to admit: I wear a special cologne. It’s called Sex Panther by Odeon. It’s illegal in nine countries…and it’s made with bits of real panther, so you know it’s good.

You should message me if you are:

Sexy, smart, fit and fun. I don’t think that’s too much to ask…lol.

A woman's perspective on this dating profile:

He’s a manly man. It goes back to evolution and the way women are wired. We like to feel protected by a strong man that will bring home the bacon and make sure we don’t get eaten by dinosaurs.

This profile speaks to the primitive side of a woman’s brain yet this guy also has a great sense of humor, confidence and most importantly, loves his mom. His confidence doesn’t come off as cocky. It is more about him being secure with his masculinity and having fun with it at the same time.

And although “Mr. Manly” seems to have it, as they say, in the bag. I do have a bone to pick with his profile, well a few bones. “What can that be?!” I can here you exclaim!

What’s right and what’s wrong with this
profile
from a woman’s perspective:

From all of the other profiles listed, this guy was a “regular Joe” with average looks, but his sense of confidence in what he knew he was looking for in a gal; along with the great many adventures he had been on, gave him a “knight-in-shinning-armor-returning-from-slaying-a-dragon” appeal. Girls love that!

YESSSS, you know what I am about to fill you in on. You guessed it, Regular-Yet-Adventurous-Joe fumbled with a few things when it comes to his profile; and can you guess what that is? “Attraction Killer” #2!

Intelligent and Witty Dating Profile Example

Basically I love life and I love living life. I enjoy the outdoors, traveling, restaurants, laughing, goIng to cultural events, and sociaLizing with quality peOple. Its just better liVing and sharing lifE with someone else 🙂

I’m originally from the DC area, did my undergrad in NY, and Have lived in a few different cOuNtries. I have a car LOL… I racE cars on race trackS for fun. It’s a greaT hobby.

I enjoy being active, healthy and Staying fit. FaMily and friends Are impoRtanT to me as well.

If you’d like to know more Say “hi”. I didn’t reveAl a lot about my Self for you to read on purpose. Rather we chat, talk, engage in conversation to get to know each other instead of us reading through a long page in this section about each other. Also, just because someone lookS like a good match “on paper”, doesn’t necessarilY translate in reality.

Note: The bold letters are an anagram message.

A woman's perspective on this dating profile:

This guy has a zest for life and is all about positive energy, so much so, that when you read his profile, it puts you in a good mood.

He finds a way of standing out by incorporating an anagram in his profile—very witty and original. Just as a guy can get bored sifting through profiles so does a girl. The more you can incorporate an element that will make you standout, while remaining true to yourself and your personality, the better.

But even this ORIGINAL profile has several things that could have made it SOOOO much better. And those things could mean the difference between connecting with a “not my type” kinda gal and an all out TEN “perfect for me” BABE. What could that be?

Nerdy Romantic (That is not overly mushy) Dating Profile Example

1. The boldest thing that I have ever done has to do with my first internet date—she lived in Romania and I flew there to meet her (I was entirely convinced that she was my soul mate… (I was young). Anyway it was really a triple whammy on boldness, because of my fear of flying, traveling to a new country solo and first date jitters all rolled into one. What about you?

2. The Never Ending Story, Ghostbusters, The Labyrinth, the Princess Bride. I love 80’s movies and I can dance the night away to 80s music. Speaking of dance, I am recently into Salsa, and Tango… I plan to become a fantastic dancer for the next time I find myself on an exotic island one night at a Tiki bar somewhere.

3. They gave me a hard time for dropping out of school… and created my own software business. We help non-computer nerds with their online businesses. It is my dream job, no schedule, no boss and 96.5% free time.

4. I was taught Reiki in Romania, where I lived for two years. Avoided being bitten by vampires, but yes, they do have them there.

5. I am addicted to rock, ’cause I am a climber. Sometimes when I walk by a brick building I will stop and fondle the wall, it reminds me of rock, I have a subconscious urge to climb it… if your a climber you will know what I mean, and if not… I’ll take you climbing a few times and you will be doing it too.

6. Decaf

7. Pancakes

8. I would rather be a rock star then a movie star. My personal theory on music, is that it is just pure, emotional communication, have you ever listened to a song in another language but still understood on an emotional level, what the song was trying to express? Music can bring emotions out in us and bring us back to emotions that we felt in the past… it’s a talent that I wish I had, and emotions are really the most addictive chemicals.

9. I believe in the law of attraction, weird random events that seem to unlikely to be merely coincidence happen more frequently then they should. I spent a number of years in my early 20’s road tripping and meditating. I think that thought has an energy which impacts manifest reality and shapes it in very specific ways.

64% Introvert, 36% Extrovert.
Analytical, kinesthetic thinker
The spotlight is not my friend.
Anti-planner, pro spontaneity.
A shy geek and a smooth operator…. that’s approximately me.

10. Tofino is magic, I first learned to surf there.

11. Gym and jogging. Hiking and biking.

12. Scary movies

So what’s next? Send me a message.

A woman's perspective on this dating profile:

If you are hot, a girl will check you out, but that doesn’t make you a keeper. From all the profiles listed here, this guy was the one with the supermodel looks but his profile reads like someone that isn’t aware of how good looking he is. He is searching for love and putting himself out there.

This guy shares an enduring story of his first attempt at on-line love. He is down-to-earth and romantic yet has a nerdy side. For those of you out there that are good looking and striking out with women—balance is what equals success.

But now: Here ye, Here ye Knights in Shining Armor, there is something I must inform you about this profile…it is off due to a few things. Did you figure out what that might be?

Whimsical and Romantic Dating Profile Example

I crave what the poet Richard Siken wrote in “Crush.”
But I understand that love is sometimes more like “you fit into me” by Margaret Atwood.

James Bond is my mentor and The Most Interesting Man in the World is my life coach. A modern day Arthur Rimbaud, if you will.

Recently my best friend paid me this compliment: “you navigate seamlessly between fun and serious, sensual and sexual, romantic and raunchy”. You can get a grasp of what I’m like from my friends prospective from this quote, and the “raunchy” part I hope is more about my sense of humor. Lol.

Six things I could never do without:

  • Great food
  • Music
  • 5 Senses
  • Love
  • Sex
  • Adrenaline

I used to say the ocean/beach, but I’ve since learned that I would give up the beach for some daily spooning. (the hugging kind)

I spend a lot of time thinking about:
What if the Hokey Pokey is what it’s all about?
When will they make male birth control pills?
How to make more desserts on the BBQ.
If everyone Wang Chungs tonight, what would tomorrow be like?
Or the great debate of green vs red Tabasco, do you want the heat or the flavor?

A woman's perspective on this dating profile:

This guy is a walking dichotomy. He has just the right amount of “laid back” demeanor as he does “go-go-go” attitude. Most women like the notion of being grabbed hard and kissed soft, and this fellow looks like he can get the job done.

He’s in tuned with his tender side, opting to trade in the ocean for “daily spooning”, all the while not coming off as too girly. He has a whimsical side and women always respond well to that—it allows them to fantasize.

B-B–B-BUT…oh come on, by now you know that there is a BUT coming. There are some PROBLEMO’s with his profile description…Yesssss, you read right! There is some stuff going awry. What is that? “Attraction Killer” #1 which is The Age 40’s Profile Writing Paradox. The Doc breaks it down like Charlie Brown for you when you take that quiz…

Top Secret – Why?

This dating profile has been added to The eDatingDoc Academy: Online Dating Workshop for Men.

A woman's perspective on this dating profile:

Let’s start at the end. This guy does a great job at putting the girl at ease. He mentions that in the worse case scenario “we might end up becoming great friends”, eliminating any forced expectations. He starts off his profile by being humorous and even a bit on the mysterious side. Girls fancy mystery (as long as the truth gradually comes to light as the relationship progresses). He also has tapped into his childlike side, which is always an endearing quality. This guy is mysterious, compassionate, fun and funny—an irresistible combo to women if he didn’t totally fumble it with “Attraction Killer” #2!

Down-to-Earth Romantic Dating Profile Example

I just moved back to Australia after finishing ye ol’ American Film Institute for screenwriterin’. It’s like summer camp for makin’ movies, so I’m happy about it.

I am a graduate of Colorado State University, where I double-majored in English and Journalism. I sometimes ‘fast’ accidentally, because I forget to eat. Then I get real hungry. And I eat. A lot.

I like public transportation and wandering around cities.
I like mountains. Seeing them, climbing them, smelling them. I like the thin air of it all.
I also like playing basketball and dancing. Team Sports that involve running are good.

I have a neglected 12-string-guitar named Calypso, who now only has 10.5 strings, but I like playing her.

I have a banjo who’s in perfect condition, but that’s because I never play him.

I absolutely can’t stand the taste or smell of bananas. They make me nauseous. I’m not a picky eater…Rocky Mountain Oysters, Frog Legs, insects, whatever, I’ll eat it. As long as there’s no banana involved.

Wasteland, by Dan Bern, is the best song of the past 15 years (live version only. The studio version sounds neutered).

I think a lot of maxims are false, including ‘Don’t knock it ’till you’ve tried it’ and ‘fair and balanced’ and ‘Just Do It’ and ‘got milk?’

I do believe that ‘love conquers all,’ but that’s because I’m a hopeless romantic.

Most of the time, I don’t take myself very seriously. Most of the time, you shouldn’t, either.

I am absent-minded, laid-back, and dash-friendly…

You are beautiful, kind, compassionate, intelligent, witty, wonderful, giving, generous, self-assured, modest, humble, outgoing, shy, etc.
Or if you just want to give me something valuable, like eternal wisdom, a free ticket to Paris, or a house.

A woman's perspective on this dating profile:

This guy comes off as a solid, down-to-earth, sweet gent with a great sense of humor. But in no way is he a pushover or worse yet, boring.

When he describes what he enjoys, he does it in a way that the vision is clear. I can see the mountain, the banjo and even taste the bananas. He has stimulated my sense and women appreciate that ability in a man.

He brings to light his positive attributes and makes light of his quirky preferences. “I’m dash-friendly” is so funny and out of the ordinary you just have to chuckle. I want to get to know him, and meet his banjo and guitar (insert wink). Hook the reader in without giving away everything–good going Mr. Dash Guy!

Ohhhhh I just love this guy…I have a hard time picking a favorite but he’s up there on that list. If only he had the eDatingDoc’s secret recipe to extra crispy awesomeness he’d be #1. But now YOU can find out and make sure you’re not following in Mr. Banana Banjo’s footsteps. Check out “ye ol’” Dating Profile Analyzer Quiz for the awesomeness…

I love to live an active life and explore.

The climb is also being dedicated to one of my patients that I have become very close to who loves adventure and mountains although unfortunately his lung function prevents him from chasing his dreams due to the high altitude.

I am a complete goofball, dorky, and passionate.

Old fashioned to a certain degree. I laugh every chance I get. I have a love for the outdoors and anything that involves me being on the water. Coffee. Campfires. A challenge. I love movies. Inspirational people.

A girl’s gotta have a… sense of style, the ability to run in heels, a spark in her eye, and a killer smile.

This guy likes to keep things short, and sweet yet what he writes about is compelling. He’s an individual that is giving back within his community. Showing compassion towards others is a very positive character trait that will win you points with women. He also is in tuned with what he’s looking for and goes about sharing that in a sweet and silly way. He’s kept his profile simple but eloquent.
