Best catchy headlines for online dating
I kept my profile congruent to who I am rather than a fake facade as I knew some people I know would probably come across my page and question it.
Online dating is a laid back version of speed dating except you don’t need to be physically presentable; you need to arm yourself with catchy headlines, subject lines, and come up with a successful way to approach and initiate conversation to a complete stranger.
Which brings me to my next point- If she isn’t responding then don’t send a message to her saying something like this “What? ” *face palm* It screams insecure and desperate which are both undesirable qualities in a man, and it’s a great way for you to never get a message. When girls are asked what they want in a guy they always say “a guy with a good sense of humour” or “a guy who can make me laugh.” Watch a little stand up comedy! Do pay attention to her profile, read it, and ask questions related to her interests.
You are a cool guy, you don’t need to seek validation from strangers on the internet, if she is interested than awesome, if she isn’t than move on. Don’t use the ‘copy and paste’ tactic, this is when a guy uses the same general message for every girl, most women can see right through it and it gives off the impression that you made no effort to read her profile.
That this guy has really nothing more to offer than the external.
Women are emotional creatures, yeah we all like something to look at but we rather have someone who we can relate to and feel connected to on emotional level.
Girls get swamped with messages, with an average of 17 messages a day, that means if you are a guy who is legitimately interested in a girl you need to have a snazzy subject line in order to not get scanned over and deleted. ” is just not going to cut it in the online dating world, nor would it really go over well via Facebook or Twitter.
Also those bathroom pictures of all those guys with washboard abs are an instant turn off (insert 14 year old flashbacks to the good ol’ Nexopia days here.) This picture tells me (and the other girls) nothing more than that the guy is probably insecure and need a body shot in order to gain my attention.
Here are a few examples from current profiles on a popular site: Now be honest, do any of these headlines intrigue you, or make you want to know more about the person? My dating profile led with a quote instead of a position description. It has content (what the quote actually says), it has tone (beautiful, funny, sarcastic, solemn), it reveals something important about you in relation to the author (a Homer Simpson quote says something different to an Anais Nin quote), and it attracts someone who has a similar cultural or literary taste (again Homer Simpson vs Anais Nin).
Instead of presenting a laundry list of who I was and what I wanted, I created a story about what my partner’s life would be like with me in it.
Most dating sites give you a place to write a heart stopping headline.
This was enough to intrigue me in the concept as well as seeing it as a possible platform for me to give feedback to help guys through the web as well as a way to distinguish the best approach for women who are interested in online dating.
So I took the plunge as Cam and I set up my very own account on POF to try a social experiment on online dating.
So here is my experience and what I have noticed in the POF (Plenty of Fish) world.
