Tips for Making Your Profile Description Stand Out

4. October 2012 by Lorena 0 Comments

How hard is it to write fifty words? Easy, until it’s time to come up with at least that many for your profile description on an online dating site. What can you say that will make the best impression on the Russian ladies on our site?


Stay Away from Generic Descriptions

It’s easy to fall into the trap of using generic descriptors that really don’t tell much about who you are as an individual. Avoid clichés about how you are fun to be around, or that you like sports. Focus on the things that are unique to you.


What do you like to do?

Be sure to also include a bit about what sort of work you do, even if think this is not exciting. The ladies on the site want to know what you are like, and what like would be like if they were with you.


What qualities set you apart?

What are you proud of? Are you a pretty good tennis player? A knowledgeable Russian history buff? Talk about this stuff in your profile. While going overboard and bragging should be avoided, there is nothing wrong with sharing the qualities you are rightly proud of.


Don’t tell them, show them.

Are you athletic? Let your profile pictures communicate that. Have a great sense of humor? Instead of just saying that you do, include a small joke. People form their impressions of you based on what they observe about you, not what you say about yourself. Allow the Russian ladies looking at your profile to draw their own conclusions about the positive qualities that you have. When your profile shows who you are, it’s easier for them to get to know you.


Try to see your profile as someone else would.

Most people on online dating sites show their interest by commenting on or asking about something they read on your profile. Gentlemen on Russian Love Match can give interested ladies a hand by giving something to respond to. Here, it helps to be very specific about your values, your hobbies, and how you spend your time. The easier it is for her to write an engaging introduction based on what she sees online, the better your chances of that special lady deciding to write to you.
