4 tips for creating a profile that represents who you are

Creating a dating profile can be tricky. You don't want to seem too aggressive or picky, but you also want to represent who you are so you minimize the number of fruitless dates you experience. 

Here are a few tips to help you create a profile that can help you meet people with potential:

1. Personal information

When entering personal information on your dating profile, you want to keep it fairly simple. Safety first: don't reveal any information that gives your exact location or other personal information that can allow people to track you. 

Entering your basic information is a must, for example, your age, line of work, education, hobbies and aspirations. Don't forget to disclose whether or not you smoke or drink. 

2. Which values matter most?

If your religious preferences are a priority and have weight when deciding your interest in an individual, it is important to include this in your profile. This is also important when it comes to other lifestyle defining issues. 

It is best to be up front with the things that matter most to you so you can have a productive experience.

3. Positive points

When entering your information, you want to give a positive appearance by highlighting the things that you have an interest in and that makes you happy. What do you enjoy doing in your spare time? Do you like volunteering or helping others? These are things you should focus on. 

Try not to discuss negative personal issues because it can be off-putting or attract the wrong type of people. Honesty is always the best policy. 

4. A picture's worth a thousand words

With honesty in mind, you should post a recent photo - people want to know what you look like now. It may be tempting to post your favorite photo from ten years ago, but that is misleading, and can create tension or disappointment on your first date. 

Put your best foot forward on your profile. Be honest, but don't include negative information about yourself, and try to keep it brief - you want to save something to discuss on your first date! 

If you are looking for a positive dating experience, you should give BYBER a try.
