They say that in advertising, we are the product. At least that’s what Don Draper said in one episode. This is all the more true when it comes to writing an online-dating profile, when we must do what many of us despise: sell ourselves.
I don’t think a man’s written profile is the most important factor in attracting women online — pictures are probably more important — but a confident, articulate self-description can only help his chances. To that end, Rob Overman broke down a mediocre profile written by his former student and added some subtle shine to it.
Here are some issues Rob and I cover:
- What your profile can say about you — good and bad — to prospective dates.
- Writing a profile that flatters you while not getting too serious with it.
- Why younger girls might not respond if you paint yourself as the funny guy.
