The Change In Personal Ads
For someone with no knowledge of copywriting or previous ad exposure writing personal ads for dating reasons can be a real challenge. You need to put together a short text ad that will attract the right person. You need to list your qualities and the qualities you are looking for in the opposite sex. Some consider writing personals a real art form in its own right.
You will soon realise it’s near impossible to sum yourself up in 25 words or less. The old personal ad was a small newspaper section where you advertised who you were looking for.
The new upgraded personal ad is called the dating profile!
Now you have a lot more room to describe your interests with an image attached.
The difficulty with writing personal dating ads is you have to sell yourself. You have to be confident enough to say “yes…
I am good at …”, you have to perform your own little personality test on yourself, really rank your skills and what you can offer someone else.
This process can be tough.
Luckily dating sites help you along with the process of filling out a dating profile.
By presenting your best side to the world and chatting online daily you can drastically increase your chances with online personals.
Online Dating Personals Tips
Make use of your profile! It’s always amazing that people pay for online dating but don’t fill out their profile properly…
OR not at all!
What good is an online personal ad with no description?
Passerby’s will have no idea who you are and what your interests are.
Be thorough and be interesting! It’s easy to stand out from the crowd when hardly anyone actually writes a decent profile.
Use multiple fun photos of you doing cool things. Photos that capture who you are as a person you will get 9 times more responses with images compared to without.
Write bullet point interests and dislikes
No need to use profanity to be cool. Or though being your self should reign supreme over any other dating advice. Because if you choose to use all the dating advice and this stops you from acting how you usually act you will be attracting the wrong folk.
You want to attract compatible singles – If you swear you swear. Just tone it down well your online! You see text and biting humour do not mix very well! Same goes with witty sarcasm (if there is such a thing).
Another online personal ad tip would be to tone down the past relationship chat to ZERO
No matter how rough your past relationship you should not bring this up. No one wants to hear about how bad you were treated.
If you were the one treating her badly then perhaps you should look into your security issues.
Online dating is not a dating interview: Ease off on the inquisition. Lighten up and they will too.
Dating Personals – Hobbies
Be honest about yourself and your hobbies online: If you love to play with your rabbits in the weekend then write it down!
Underwater hockey? Great
Spend all day playing video games? Write it down (perhaps not like that… but mention your passions!)
The point is getting laughed at, or having low replies is not the tragedy. Faking your profile and meeting people you are not compatible is. You confuse yourself and waste peoples time in the process.
If you know your intention for online dating is only to find someone fast within 5 km of your house then don’t go suggesting you’re in for long term relationships.
Reply to messages within 48 hours or sooner. If you wait they will likely move on. Love and connection happens fast fast fast online.
You best bet is to just be online more, so you can chat live with online users.
Online Personals – Be positive and be patient
Real dating and relationships take weeks if not months to establish any kind of connection. Don’t expect overnight sex or your knight in shining armour to save you by tomorrow.
Using online personals to date singles in your city is the new way to connect with the opposite sex.
Just make sure you are ready for the ride.
