Live Your Dating ProfileFebruary 10, 2017
The wonder of online dating is that it gives you the opportunity to showcase your best self. You can take the time to carefully curate the pictures, interests and characteristics that you share with others. While it is always good to put your best foot forward, don't let yourself fall into the trap of hiding the truth about you.
Think back to all the dates that you thought could be "the one" and turned out to be yet another case of false advertising or selective truth telling. Is it possible that you could be doing the same thing to your potential dates? If you are tired of wasting time on all the wrong people, you might want to ask yourself if you're living your dating profile or if it's just lovely words on a screen.
The best way to find true love with online dating is by being true to your authentic self, both online and in the real world. Do your best to exhibit the attributes that you claim to value to make a genuine connection with a romantic partner.
Are You A Thrill Seeker?
You can't claim to be a thrill seeker and shrink from the mere suggestion of adventure. Don't let yourself be afraid to try something new or say yes to a new experience. If you prefer to stay at home and play it safe, just say so or list hobbies that don't include extreme sports.
Are You Inquisitive?
If you say that you are inquisitive and love to learn about others, be sure to ask about their life and listen to the answers. While you shouldn't be afraid to reveal stories about yourself, be sure to prove you are inquisitive with thoughtful questions that show you listened to the answers.
Are You Self-Assured?
Do you want to be known as self-assured and confident? If so, don't spend your time asking for the approval of your date and carry yourself with poise. Don't give into doubt and indecision, and never let someone treat you with anything less than respect.
Are You Bighearted?
Show your big-hearted nature by engaging in volunteer efforts or donation drives for the causes that move you. Vow to do your best to remain generous with your date and give them the benefit of the doubt, at least a time or two!
Are You Candid?
The best way to show that you are candid is to be open and honest with the people in your life. That doesn't always mean saying hurtful things, but it does mean that you should do your best to be genuine when giving compliments and gracious when you know things aren't going to work out.
If you want to find greater success with online dating, be sure that you are living the life that you claim in your profile. If you take the time to live the life of your online profile, you'll attract a compatible partner who shares your values and interests.
