1. Starting introduction in a negative way. Example “I don’t want / need a man who….” Another example is making undermining statements about yourself, like “I am only….. / I am an average woman” or “I haven’t had much luck with men so far….” Instead say something nice and interesting about yourself.
2. Using a picture together with the previous boyfriend – while this should be obvious, many women actually don’t realize how big turn off this is. Use picture of yourself, possibly doing some activity you like, which can steer an interesting discussion.
3. Coming across as a bitchy diva. Many women use as a motto such as of Marilyn Monroe: “If you can’t handle me at my worst, you don’t deserve me at my best.” While Marilyn, a professional seductress, player and idol of many men can get away with such statements, most women can’t. Men don’t get any idea of your BEST yet, but can already worry about your WORST.
4. Sounding like desperate, depressed, needy or controlling. Most men look for someone to ENJOY the life with, not to SUFFER with. Would you like to date yourself? Steer curiosity about you with a hint of a fun life they could have with you.
5. Writing too much. Keep it light, give a few highlights about yourself and save the most for later. Men will anyway first look at your picture, whether you look sympathetic, whether you smile, and only later they might become interested in your life story.
A good dating profile can make a difference in the number of the men that want to meet you and increase the chances that you will like one of them. To find out how to write an eye catching bio and filter only the interesting men online, check out my article: How to filter out a great man on Tinder
