Online dating no profiles
‘If you struggle for inspiration, why not look at other profiles to see what other people are saying?’ suggests Charly Lester, co-founder of new over 50s dating app Lumen. First off, if you make me hunt for which one you are, through several different pictures, I’m going to lose interest, especially if one of your friends is amazingly attractive.
If you love travelling, say where your favourite place is and why.
I’d rather meet someone I can occasionally be a slob on the couch with and mutually appreciate each other’s potato-ness.
Maybe you’ve decided to finally give online dating a try, or maybe you’re just wondering why your matches aren’t responding to your profile. Don’t whine about your singleness status, about the bad first dates you’ve had lately or about the sad state of politics in your area.
So, unless you think I’m going to spend a date hovering above you like a miniature dirigible, it’s kind of annoying and disconcerting to have six of these… There’s no way in hell I can keep up with that and I don’t really feel like humiliating myself trying.
Secondly, and this might not be an issue for everyone, but if every picture you have is you surrounded by people, I’m going to assume, at least subconsciously, that alone time with you will be rare and probably become an issue and, frankly, if I’m destined to never have any alone time with you, we are terribly mis-matched and I’d rather swipe Left now and save myself all the effort. If I’m perusing your profile pics and several involve you standing with your arm around some amazingly good-looking dude who isn’t a cut-out of Leonardo Di Caprio, I’m going to wonder how I could even approach you without feeling like a laughing stock.
Conversely if all of your friends are goblinoids and I don’t know you’re the pretty one because you could be any one of the 5 people in that picture, I’m probably going to back away slowly and swipe Left.
