How to write a good dating profile
Even if you do like “walking on the beach” or “drinking wine in front of a roaring fire” leave it out – everyone says that.
Think of something interesting that could be a conversation starter.
The only difference is in real life you have time to immediately correct a faux pas.
So you need your profile to show you off in a way that will catch a man's eye and interest right away. You might laugh more at his jokes, you pay closer attention to what he says, and you show your best side.

‘Play up your love of anything sporty, outdoorsy or public – like concerts and exhibitions.’ Wouldn’t you know, profile photos that demonstrate you playing your guitar or downhill skiing – even if your face isn’t showing – get more messages.
After you’ve filled in your basic information, you can add more detail in the “A few words about me” and “More About Me” sections of your profile.
Use the latter to describe the things you’re passionate about such as your interests and hobbies and your favourite places to visit.
