Having trouble attracting the attention you deserve on dating sites? Maybe your profile just needs a tweak or two. There are specific types of photos, words, and phrases that will make you instantly more enticing to the opposite sex. Once you know what they are, you can grab the ones that accurately describe you and drop them front and center in your profile. Review Weekly has compiled data from eHarmony, OkCupid, and other sources into a handy infographic that could turbocharge your social life.
Men can't seem to resist women who smile or flirt directly into the camera in their profile pics, for one thing. Add a sweet selfie with a little cleavage if you really want the responses to roll in. Men also like to see you doing interesting things, traveling to exotic locales, or snuggling with your fur buddies. Women also like to see travel, animals, and fun activities, but we seem to prefer a man who looks away from the camera and doesn't smile as much.
Word choice matters. Describing yourself as ambitious, perceptive, passionate, or physically fit could improve men's response to your profile by a whopping 50 percent or more. Toss in optimistic, funny, and spontaneous, and your inbox is going to get blown apart. If you can work in references to yoga, skiing, London, or New York City, make sure to include those. Men, on the other hand, do well to describe themselves as sweet and thoughtful as well as ambitious. Check out the infographic and use what you learn to spruce up your dating profile.
