Creating the ultimate online hookup profile

opinion

You even have a job, a tidy flat, and a hilarious cat named Mortimer.

Short (And Super Short) Profile...

Most men are Creating the ultimate online hookup profile clueless when it comes to crafting dating profiles, because they do it in a rush. I reckon that should be enough to attract the perfect girl. This strategy is the rough equivalent of a bakery putting a cake in a garbage bag. Pester, bribe, or threaten one of your friends until they agree to take a picture of you in natural light doing natural things like eating, standing, or sitting.

You should be the only one in the photograph, or at least easily identifiable: This looks good when The Rock does it, but is inadvisable for everybody else. Avoid the infamous under-the-chin angle.

You look like a potato with nostrils. What can they infer about you? On to the next profile!

Listen, your snarkiness is probably adorable in person. But online, this amateur stand-up comic act is doing you no favours.

Your unreasonable love of geology documentaries — as boring as it may seem- is a much better thing to add to your profile than a list of dislikes. Besides, how can you be so sure about your preferences? Relax them a little: That means you have to have a memorable bio. This is a terrible word used by terrible people. You want to meet women who read books sometimes. Cute girls with glasses, who you can talk about Netflix shows intelligently with.
