OK. Thank you to all the people who emailed me for some offline help with the Single Boomer Online Dating profile help. Check your emails for my individual helps to you. To help you answer the questions about really what to include, I’m citing myself below. Fill your worksheet out a bit more. And tomorrow I’ll show you then MY ONLINE DATING PROFILE BRAND.
To illustrate what I do then with my Dating Coaching client’s worksheets. I mull them over. Typically I come up with a few sort of catch phrases and we talk again to test them for how they FEEL to them.
When you are posting an internet personal’s profile, you want YOUR profile to stand out and in a way which accurately reflects and conveys YOU at the Online Dating Sites. And you need to mentally create a BRAND which will simply be YOUR SHORTHAND to conveying you quickly. Yes, you are more than your brand. You are a full and richly nuanced human being with ups and downs, sweet and sours to your personality (me, too! NO! yes, it’s true… lol!) There is more to you than just a few words. Of course. That is a given. However, this is to HELP other singles who read your internet dating profile to quickly get a FEEL for YOU.
Time and again, the feedback I and my clients receive with our online dating profiles is that… “your profile really was different than everyone else’s…. I felt you were a real person…” They got a snapshot of us.
So, let’s take some examples of some things in your worksheets.
Voluptuous figure, tends towards being overweight
White, in fact, quite fair
martian body type
sales and marketing professional (profession can be under OTHER, more important just to cite it than to worry, “Which column should I categorize this into?”)
Grew up in Princeton
Love Colonial History
Bibliovore (I love to read and have LOTS of books, bookcases are a significant furniture consideration)
Entrepreneurial lifestyle and mind set (namely, I “work” on the weekends and in the evenings)
Love getting out into nature
Love New York City in a Big Way
Cat, dogs, horses animal lover
Baker more than cooking and yet good (not GREAT) cook
Peets coffee fan
Love the TV show HOUSE
Love Brit humor and comedies
ah… strong sense of humor (I know a little redundant from previous column)
From East Coast
Live in Las Vegas, former Silicon Valley tech land
Widowed, young widow
OK, that is long enough for today.
Tomorrow I will show you how I take those attributes and created my BRAND. Additionally, I’ll talk about some of the ITEMS which did NOT become part of my brand and why etc.
Happy Dating and Relationships,
