1. Not telling the right story with your photos
Posting a couple of pictures by yourself, even if they look good, is the wrong approach if you want to have online dating success. Your photos are an opportunity to tell a visual story about who you are, along with visual stories about your passions, interests, friends, families, hobbies, and more.
You need to take advantage of this opportunity by presenting a visual slideshow that jumps off the page and makes others instantly take notice.
A great photo gallery will provide people with an in-depth view of who you are, where you’ve been, and where you are going in life.
Some pictures that tend to bring great success are:
- Animal photos
- Vacation pictures
- Adventure pictures
- Family pictures
- Photos with friends
- Humorous pictures
- Pictures that portray success in subtle ways (nobody likes a brag)
- Volunteering pictures
- Playing sports
- Outdoors activities
2. Poor profile writing
To stand out from the competition, you need to understand that there is an art to profile writing. You need to make my writing conversational, give it a personality, avoid cliches, use positive sounding language, provide it with the right structure, add plenty of humor, etc.
Once you take the time to create a profile that actually focuses on accomplishing the feats mentioned above, as well as some other tactics, you have the groundwork laid out for online dating success. Your visual story and written story combine for a perfect 1-2 punch that will instantly have others intrigued.
Generic email writing
Having a perfect profile was a huge step. But it get you to the finish line—this is because the highest quality singles online receive a lot of emails. To make them take notice, you can’t just be generic with your writing.
Just saying hello, telling women that you think you have a lot in common, and uninspired small talk about commonalities is not enough to bring you online dating success.
Neither will overly long emails or emails that try to flatter women into liking you. You need to write emails that ignite immediate interest.
So how do you accomplish that? The best way is, and always will be, by initiating with something humorous.
Now that you have a perfect profile, when you make women laugh with your emails, they respond. Just about every time. In fact, your response rate will be well over seventy percent.
At the end of the day, humor is the universal language that makes everyone perk up and take notice. A playful comment, followed by an easy to answer the question will put you leaps and bounds above your competition towards getting noticed.
