Dating: What To Put In Your Dating App Profile
In today’s digital world, dating apps like Adam4Adam are one of the best places for you to find Mr. Right. And not to brag, but we do have a couple of success stories. You can totally find Mr. Right on Adam4Adam.
So what do you need to do to make that happen? The best thing to do is to have a profile that really catches the kind of attention you want. Take a look at our five tips on what to put in your dating app profile below!
1. Make sure to fill out every part of your profile
Yes, it seems like a lot of work to fill in all of the information required by a dating app profile, but it’s a must in this age of catfishing. A filled out profile — with the maximum number of photos, a description, the works — is an assurance to the person on the other end that you are who you say you are.
A fully filled out profile also makes it easier for like-minded people to find you. It’s a fact that dating apps are also used to find Mr. Right Now just as much as Mr. Right, and being explicit about what you want helps weed out people who aren’t looking for the same thing as you. Adam4Adam has a “Looking For” section so be sure to select “dating” or “love”!
Also, making sure your Adam4Adam profile is completely filled out lets you be included in the app’s search/filters feature. Other users can search for you by “Sexual Orientation”, “Sexual Position”, or even “Communities” for instance, and not being part of filters just means you miss a lot of opportunities, so we strongly suggest that you fill everything listed in your “Edit Profile” page.
2. Be honest
This goes hand-in-hand with tip number one. Unfortunately, catfishing is prevalent in this digital age, so sometimes you really just can’t blame people if they’re a bit apprehensive about the people they meet online. Keeping it honest will make you stand out, and will really make face-to-face encounters a lot less awkward.
3. Pick a profile photo that doesn’t cover your face
How do you expect people to want to meet you in real life when you don’t even want to show who you are in your dating profile? Don’t put pictures where you’re with a group, or one that’s blurry, because that makes people think twice about you right from the jump. Find your angles, look for a recent full body picture where you look great, so people don’t end up just scrolling past you when you’re on the app. Also keep in mind that your profile appears both on the website and the app. And since Apple and Google have very strict g-rated rules, make sure to upload at least 1 g-rated photo of yourself if you want to appear on the app grid. More than 50% of users are using the app to access A4A so you wouldn’t want to have an empty profile, right?
4. Include a conversation starter when you describe yourself
In the same way that the people who are on dating apps just for sex make it very clear in their profiles, you should be the same if you’re looking for a relationship that’s more long-term. If you’re looking for a conversation but have nothing to talk about in your profile, it kind of makes things a little difficult. Include things like “Ask me what my favorite book is!” or something similar in your profile so potential partners can have something they can start a conversation with.
5. Don’t spill your whole life story in your profile description
While you should definitely include a conversation starter in your profile, people don’t want to read a resume either. You don’t have to list down everything you’ve ever done in your life on there — that’s what face-to-face dates are for. Just include enough details about your life that will make other people interested to know more.
