I don't know why, I don't know how, I only know that I was at the supermarket one fine morning, minding my own business, when suddenly I came face to face with "the sun-dried plum." I will tell you right now that I'm a fan of the prune—particularly when it's in Danish form—but the prune was clearly not selling.
For the prune to turn heads (not to mention meet a nice guy, move to the suburbs, and have a couple of baby prunes) it needed a fresh marketing strategy.
It all started when my pal Paula asked me to figure out why she wasn't getting a response to her JDate ad. " What I get is that we all want to be loved for exactly who we are. " It wasn't long before news that I'd taken Paula's profile from drab to fab spread far and wide (okay, a couple of people in Brooklyn heard). I've seen the dumb, the dull, and the klutzy; the bitter, the brazen, and the too cute by half.
I didn't have to read beyond her opening sentence—"I like the library! All the exclamation points in the world couldn't save that line. But surely there's a juicier way to bring up your literary fetish.
of emails when they use online dating.”Lots” doesn’t tell me any darn thing though. I needed to turn this “Lots” into something I could understand. Ok not really But dammit, I do make a sexy girl don’t I?! This is what I really did: Me and the e Dating Pin-up picked out some of her sexy photos and created a few profiles on the different dating sites. How can you survive online dating in this apocalypse? We toned it down and went for cute this time I set the Zombie Bait then checked it 4 hours later… This time I wanted to see the Zombies in action and how long it took them to strike. The Zombies should be at work so I thought it would take a while… Same mistakes, over and over and over and over and OVER and O-V-E-R!!!!
Ohh-yeah– Time for an experiment and you know how the e Dating Doc loooves experiments! I dressed up like a girl, took some photos & joined ok Cupid. I wanted to see what would happen if we used some of the e Dating Pin-up’s photos that were not smokin’ hot. And this was to cute photos NOT bangin’ hot photos. I saw them start to pile in: In 4 minutes & 14 seconds this is how many emails the e Dating Pin-up got: 18 emails in 4 minutes on a Monday at noon. Because 99.9999% of those messages were mindless Their photos were mind-numbing Zombie Group Photo – Their written profiles STINK!
If you fail to do either of those two things, she’s instantly moving on to the next guy.
But if she likes what she’s seeing, she’ll keep reading – and more importantly, she’ll be way more likely to respond to your message.
Open with an exciting travel story or a humorous anecdote that hints at your personality.
In this example, the first line of this profile immediately gives her something pleasurable to visualize, so within the first couple words she’s already imagining her tropical vacation with you, filled with warm blue water and cute sea turtles.
aka Zombie Bait We created profiles on: I set the bait then checked it the next day. “They all love living life to the fullest.” Blah Blah Yeah right Mr. Creating a profile or sending emails that are just “ok” won’t cut it either. Sooo how are you suppose to succeed in online dating with so much competition?
Checked again a few hours later: 110 emails!!!!!!!!! And you’ll stand out in the girl’s mind like there’s a giant flashing neon arrow over your head, and guess what it says?
Struggling to write a dating profile that gets results? Most guys find it difficult or frustrating to write about themselves, so taking the easy route with a two-liner like this can be pretty tempting: However, if you’re looking for the total package, a short, boring profile like this isn’t going to cut it.
