Advice on writing a dating profile

If the myriad of profile questions asked overwhelm you, stop, take a deep breath, and focus on answering each question in a way that best represents who you really are.

Your goal is to look unique; not the same as everyone else. Men see what you look like but if you tell them in a bragging way, they'll think you're stuck up and move on. Even guys with money don't want a woman telling them where to go and what to do.

If the Internet is good for anything—and, actually, it’s good for lots of things—it’s good for finding a needle in a haystack.

Whether you’re hankering after a pistol grip for that vintage Hasselblad single reflex camera, or want to learn all the lyrics to R. M.’s “It’s the End of the World as We Know it,” the World Wide Web has made tracking down and securing even the most obscure objects your heart desires a lot easier.

As I discuss in my free online dating guide, successful online dating relies in part on making great first impressions.

Whether the first impression is in the photos you select for your profile, how you describe yourself, or the first email you write, taking time to make the best first impression is important.
