(This goes for all profile pics on all social media anywhere ever.) *Please. Unless the picture is from the beach, or another no-shirt appropriate location. So does wearing anything Ed Hardy and your cap worn sideways. *If a girl says she’s looking for between 24-33 and you are outside that range, maybe you should look elsewhere. *If you start seeing someone exclusively, take down your profile. You do not need to show off your car, or an awesome scenic picture you took. *Flexing for the camera makes you look like a douche. *Talk more about yourself, rather than what you are looking for. Which comes off more as arrogant than “he knows what he wants.” *Be very clear if all you are looking for is a hook up. If that’s what you’re looking for, awesome for you. If you are looking to date, then freaking go on a date. Learn how to use it to make you look slightly more desirable.

Text appeal: Women describing themselves as sweet, ambitious or thoughtful are more likely to attract male attention and receive admiring messages on online dating websites (illustrated), while men who claim they are physically fit or describe themselves as perceptive, passionate or optimistic prove more irresistible to women A study of 12,000 online dating profiles posted on e uk found that women describing themselves as sweet, ambitious or thoughtful are more likely to attract male attention and receive admiring messages.

The language of love: Physically fit or perceptive men attracted between 60 and 70 per cent more interest from women who wanted to get to know them better, while sweet, ambitious or funny women saw between 20 to 45 per cent more approaches, which could lead to a date (stock image) Words used on a profile were shown to have a larger impact on women’s decision to approach men at between 64 and 69 per cent, while men are slightly more biased towards a pretty face, with only 43 to 46 per cent being more swayed by words.‘While the research shows certain words serve to grab fellow daters’ attention, at e Harmony we know that daters are looking for quality dates every time.
