I don't know that I've seen headlines that made me want to pee my pants before - but some of the profiles sure do. I have this thing I do, to news headlines, article headlines, profile headlines, whatever.If it's seven syllables long, I'll sing it to myself in the tune of "Camptown Races"."I'm looking for Mister Right", doo-dah, doo-dah,"Tired of the games men play", oh-bah-doo-dah-day Try it.For women, the words and phrases most associated with popular profiles include: London, NYC, yoga, surfing, athlete, fitness, fashion, .Researchers also looked into the 400 highest-rated dating profiles to mine insight as to what makes for the best profile photo.Here are a few examples from current profiles on a popular site: Now be honest, do any of these headlines intrigue you, or make you want to know more about the person? My dating profile led with a quote instead of a position description. It has content (what the quote actually says), it has tone (beautiful, funny, sarcastic, solemn), it reveals something important about you in relation to the author (a Homer Simpson quote says something different to an Anais Nin quote), and it attracts someone who has a similar cultural or literary taste (again Homer Simpson vs Anais Nin).Chose a quote about love because after all that’s what you’re here for.
Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing...
