The Dating Gurus are at your service to explain just why a dating profile headline (also known as a tagline) is more important than you would first suspect.
After hours of struggling to get the perfect selfie, you have finally opened up a dating profile.
You’ve set it up with a catchy description as well to capture the attention of the perfect girl/boy.
– I would sweep you off your feet but I recently broke my broom.– Couch potato ending relationship with TV– Your search is over.– No Axe Murderers Please! You could even quote someone as a show of your knowledge.
– Your skinny girlfriend will turn into your fat wife, so why not just cut to the chase and try a fatty out? Many who look for serious, long-term relationships on dating sites prefer simple, witty and genuine headlines over the flashy, humorous ones.
You’ll be competing with thousands of other equally impressive candidates.
Making others believe that you are the perfect guy requires some thought and ingenuity in coming up with a catchy headline that will compel them to know more about you.
If they’re not satisfied with either one of them, they’re not going to even consider entering your profile.
In fact, 8 out of 10 girls check out the heading first and only a couple of them go through the entire profile (this is according to surveys conducted on dating sites).
It also can work to attract someone who has similar interests with one quick zap.
We perused hundreds of dating site profiles and headlines for red flags or dullsville, so you don’t have to. There are more cringe-worthy headlines than we thought possible.
