What Women DON’T Want in a Man… According to Their Online Dating Profiles
Your dating profile is like to store-front window to who you are. What you put on your profile is what’s going to determine if a woman is interested in you or not. While it’s great to be honest on your online dating profile, it’s important that you use it to highlight the great things about your personality rather than just “telling it how it is.”
Here are 5 things women don’t want in a man according to their online dating profile:
1. I’m Really Busy So I Don’t Have A Lot Of Time To Give
We’re all busy, but if you say that you’re too busy on your profile it tells women that you’re not planning on giving her the time of day either. If you don’t know how to manage your time or have a work/life balance, then you’re not ready to date.
2. You’ve Had Your Heart Broken In The Past
Everyone has gone through a rough break up. If you need to vent about a past relationship take it to your friends. Never talk about heart breaks or upsets in past relationships on your profile. Every woman who sees it will be rolling her eyes and moving on to the next.
3. You List The “Type” Of Woman You Want To Meet
This is a terrible and arrogant thing to do. If you specifically want a tall blonde with blue eyes, then start looking for her. Chances are, the tall blonde is going to look at the description and think you’re a jerk and move on. You’re basically hurting your chances of getting with your “type” by listing it on your profile.
4. Your Obsession With The Gym
Being active is great. If you like hiking and going for bike rides that’s awesome. We like your hobbies. A lot of people go to the gym because it’s part of their weekly routine. But when you advertise it, it equates to that annoying gym-selfie that everyone loathes. If you work out, we’ll be able to tell when we meet you.
5. Straight Up Saying You’re Not A Nice Guy
Saying you’re cocky, a jerk or labelling yourself with any other derogatory name for being a not-so-nice person is going to leave you with a less than favourable online dating experience. Do not label yourself with anything that puts you in the jerk-zone. Women are not into that.
Be really conscious of what you put in your online dating profile. Especially if you really are interested in getting into a relationship. If you know a girl who can review it for you, that’s a great thing to do before posting it live. Think of it as an overview of the highlights of who you are. A dating profile should never highlight the negative aspects in your life.
