7 Essential Dating Profile Tips for Men

Gentlemen, it's time we had a chat. You're ready to make your mark in the world of online dating, but your profile isn't making the splash you were hoping for. It's tricky, right? What are potential partners really looking for when they visit your profile?

Not to worry! We've been doing our homework. Drawing from extensive surveys and interviews with women who are active in the online dating scene, we've compiled a list of ten essential tips that can turn your profile from 'meh' to 'marvellous'. By the end of this, you'll be equipped with the insights to create a profile that truly represents you and attracts the right kind of attention.

Now, let's dive in!

Ditch The Facade - Embrace Authenticity

Remember, you're not marketing a product, you're presenting yourself. Be genuine and authentic in your self-description. Ditch the clichés, forget the buzzwords, and let your true personality shine through. Women are seeking a real connection, and that starts with authenticity.

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words – Choose Wisely

Your profile picture is your first impression, so make it a good one. Opt for a natural smile that reaches your eyes – a sure sign of genuine happiness. Add variety to your photo collection, showcasing your hobbies and interests. But remember, the pouty selfie or gym flex can be a turn-off. Balance is key!

Words Matter – Write With Purpose

When writing your profile, be clear and concise about who you are and what you're looking for. But don't just list facts – tell a story. Make your profile engaging and unique. And for the love of autocorrect, spell-check your profile!

Honesty is the Best Policy

Honesty is sexy. Whether it's a serious relationship or casual dating, be clear about what you're looking for. A woman will appreciate your transparency and it will save any confusion down the line.

Spread The Positivity - It's Contagious

An upbeat profile is attractive. Focus on the things you love, your passions, and the positive aspects of your life. A positive outlook is an indicator of a good partner, so let your sunny side show.

Showcase Your Unique Flavour

What makes you, YOU? Perhaps you can play the guitar with your toes, or you've travelled to an exotic location and have a fantastic story to tell. Whatever it is, don't be shy about sharing what makes you unique.

Respect – Earn it, Give it, Live it

Respect for women is not just essential – it's non-negotiable. Any hint of disrespect in your profile can be an immediate red flag. Show that you value and respect women by the way you present yourself and interact online.


While these tips will undoubtedly help you improve your online dating profile, it's important to remember that online dating is just one way to meet new people. In the vast world of dating, there are numerous avenues to explore.
