Often when people first male their dating profile, they unintentionally bend the truth a little! Now don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with showing the best side of yourself that you can. The trouble comes though, when you meet people via said profile and you’re unable to maintain the image that you’ve portrayed!
The best way to meet someone is to be honest about who you are, that way they’ll get to know the real you. It’s more likely that you’ll develop meaningful relationships if they aren’t based on false truths. Here are three ways you can overhaul your dating profile, to make dating work for you!
Be honest about where you’re from –
It doesn’t matter whether you’re in a group of Sheffield singles or Surrey singles, being honest about where you’re from is key to developing a lasting relationship. Some areas may sound cooler than others, but if you use those areas on your profile, how are you going to explain your actual place of residence at a later date?! So whether you’re a country bumpkin or a city dweller, be proud and add your kingdom to your profile!
Add nice, realistic images –
One of the most common mistakes people make when putting their online profile together is using unrealistic images of themselves. Whether you’re in Strathclyde dating or in Gloucester dating, it’s essential that your profile picture resembles the real you! I’m not saying you shouldn’t look nice, that’s a given. The key is not to add images of you looking a little more youthful from twenty years ago. Make your profile represent the REAL you!
Make sure your interest are actually what you’re interested in –
Some people like to exaggerate a little when asked what their interests are. They think that by declaring their love for sky diving or travelling to every corner of the earth makes them more appealing. Well, not always! You might just be from Northamptonshire dating and that’s OK! You shouldn’t feel pressure to be someone you’re not, plus sky diving sounds mega scary! Honesty is always the best policy, so keeping it real is always the preferable!
