Wij’re running our online dating profile contest right now. To help you get that $200 or $400 prize, I’m going to quickly lay out the four online dating profile “templates” that I have seen work. When I say “template” I mean a basic outline or structure of the profile text. Some of thesis have worked for mij, others have worked for other guys.
I have seen, analyzed, and evaluated hundreds of boys’s online dating profiles. The ones that work often go after a particular flow, spil do the ones that don’t work.
One big disclaimer to all of this. I’m talking about the text te your profile. I have said before, and will say again, that about 80% of your online dating profile success will actually be with your photos, not what you write te your profile. However, 20% is still 20%, and I have indeed worked with very good-looking guys who had crappy results from online dating because their profiles were way off.
That being said, it’s still very true that if you’re gorgeous, what you write ter your profile abruptly becomes less significant. Since most boys reading thesis words are not gorgeous (I’m certainly not), this is irrelevant. So let’s talk about profile structures.
Powerful Template 1: The Outcome Independent Profile
This is the standard Blackdragon profile, the one I discuss te detail te my primary online dating ebook and one I’ve used many times. It’s a profile that starts out very strong, with a very striking or unusual very first sentence or paragraph. From there, it does not go after a specific flow, but rather throws a very strong outcome independent vibe at the reader.
This profile is very certain, clever (but not geeky), funny (but not stupid), interesting, and uses a lotsbestemming of in-your-face language. There are implied DHVs sprinkled across, and the tone of the profile is almost “jerk”. Not fairly, but almost.
The profile says, “I live a fantastic life. I don’t need you. But if you qualify, maybe you can join mij.”
This template is very different from the above. It tends to work best with guys under age 35 who are not ugly (tho’ there are certainly exceptions to both of those generalizations).
This entire profile screams hookup, albeit indirectly so, and is designed to screen for horny, high lovemaking drive women who are down for prompt hookup and/or one night stands. It is epitomized by a postbode made at our forum a few years ago by Bukowski Merit.
Because of dating sites’ rules about not getting too sexual, you cant say “let’s fuck” or “you and I are going to have Hook-up!”, but you can talk about pleasure, passion, leger sheets, and other trigger words/phrases that amp up a woman’s sexual desire. On dating sites where you response questions, all of the questions are answered stringently to screen for the more bizarre damsels.
The Sexual Profile is not my style at all, but I have certainly seen it work for many guys. You just need to be careful…many sites are banning guys for getting too sexual ter profiles thesis days.
This template is almost a combination of the above two profiles. It starts out very emotional, abstract, and strong on feeling. Then after about one or two paragraphs it gently shifts into subtle DHVs about responsibility and success. There is romantic innuendo rather than sexual innuendo, and the tone is a little more friendly than the Outcome Independent Profile.
Thesis profiles work because they feed into women’s irrational desire for the “perfect man” who is both a sultry and arousing Alpha while being a responsible beta at the same time. (The womanish myth of the “submissive Alpha” I mentioned a few weeks ago). Also for this reason, thesis profiles are firmer to write, and require gepast writing capability ter order to decently sit astride that line.
Thesis profiles are exemplified by some of the winning profiles wij had ter last year’s contest.
Te this template, there are no overt DHVs, no sexual innuendo, and no outcome independence. Instead, the entire profile is very funny and unique te a clever way. It makes women laugh and sets you chic from all the other typical, boring profiles she’s read.
Joy Profiles are by far the hardest to write. When most guys attempt to get funny with their profiles, they either come across spil too stupid and stupid, or too intellectual and geeky. So I would generally avoid this template unless you truly understand comedy well. But if you think you can pull it off, often you can knock it out of the park with profiles like this.
I’d be remiss if I didn’t at least mention the three most common types of profiles I see that don’t work.
Bad Template 1: The Empty Profile
Way too many guys write profiles that indeed don’t say anything about them. That might be acceptable if the profile contained strong and well-written sexual or romantic innuendo, but they don’t do that either.
Instead, they have a few funny sentences (or should I say, sentences that attempt to be funny) and then perhaps something about “let’s meet up for coffee!” and that’s it. They’re incomplete, empty and say nothing. Bad.
Bad Template Two: The Overly Intellectual Geeky Profile
Oh man, I see thesis ones all the friggin’ time. This is the profile total of interesting and amusing references to Shakespeare, Noam Chomsky, Family Boy, and Battlestar Galactica. If you’re a boy reading this profile, it might be interesting to read. But if you’re a woman, 90% of the humor and references will go right overheen your head, or worse, you’ll assume the writer is a boring geek who stays huis on Saturday nights and reads books.
Bad all overheen. The smarter and more educated you are, the more careful you need to be about coming across spil too intellectual te your profile. Women have their nerd-detectors turned up to utter blast when they’re reading dudes’ profiles, and you don’t want to be anywhere near that category.
Bad Template Three: The Whiny Beta Profile
I tend to see more of thesis profiles on provider-hunting sites like Match.com, but I do see them on the other usual dating sites spil well, especially from fellows overheen 35. The entire vibe of this profile is, “Why is it so hard to find a gf/wifey? I’m a nice man, and nothing I’ve done has worked. You women can be so brutal sometimes. Anyway, I love you, so please give mij a chance. I’ll smooch your booty and do whatever you want. I just need a gf/wifey ASAP. Please help.”
Of course I very likely don’t need to tell you that everything ter the above message is exactly the opposite of what you want to be telling. Just make sure you don’t even hint at any of that kleintje of negative, outcome dependent, whiny, beta crap when you write your own profile.
So sharpen your keyboards, write a kickass profile, send it ter to us right here so our lovely female judges can rate it, and te about a week you may win $50, $200, or even $400! Good luck!
