The goal isn’t to tell your life’s story, it’s to hook – to get women to invest their attention.
For example, under “favorite books, movies, etc.” most people just list shows – just facts. Long paragraphs only work if every part of them hooks.
Maybe you’ll see that one woman used a quote in her headline that you thought was clever and would attract a guy, or maybe you’ll notice another woman posted a video of herself instead of just photos.
Whatever it is, you won’t regret doing your research.
(Though this example borders on being to overtly sexual. A guy who asked me for online dating advice had this on his profile: A girl reading that knows it’s probably bullshit, but it’d make her laugh, show her he’s funny, and that he has interesting experiences to share.
See point 4 below.) From this story, you also know I don’t take myself too seriously, and don’t apologize for anything. Take it a step further, and you can convey perspective.
Writing this way doesn’t just get more girls, it gets the type of girls prefer.
You profile should be short and flow, like a burst of tight twitter messages. Profiles are like girls, you don’t have to give them a direct answer.The worst thing you could do is use old photos of yourself.It’s dishonest, and you’ll only make the guy mad when you meet in person.Indian Roommate: Write that you always practice safe sex. If I wrote “I’m funny, get laid a lot, and have a big penis,” no one would ever believe me.I know because you leave your Magnum condoms littered all over our shared bathroom. Because I used a story, it wasn’t qualifying or approval seeking, and girls pick that information up from the details.I stack my profile with about a dozen different twitter sized anecdotes girls can ask me about. There’s a reason people say “let’s get coffee sometime” rather than “let’s talk for thirty minutes before walking back to my place for naked thrusty time.” Giving an alibi (“I’m just coming over to do laundry”) allows girls who don’t feel comfortable directly seeking a hook-up to rationalize meeting you, the same way inviting a girl back to your place to finish a bottle of wine is more likely to work, than just inviting her back for sex.
