Resolutions are something that we do every year, and if we’re lucky we get to accomplish all of them by the time the next new year rolls around.
Aside from things like being healthier and taking care of ourselves more, improving our relationship prospects is another thing that we resolve to do better at. Since we at Adam4Adam are in the business of finding you Mr. Right or Mr. Right Now, here are some dating profile resolutions you can easily accomplish for 2019.
1. Make sure all of your information is up-to-date
We date people so we can get to know them better, and if you’re profile is missing a lot of information or has a lot of untrue information in it, then you’re just setting yourself up for dating failure in 2019. It’s especially egregious now that Adam4Adam has spruced up its profile section, allowing users to put in whether they identify as a trans, as a man or whether they’re part of a couple.
When your profile is completely filled out, Adam4Adam can include you in the result when people use the search/filters feature. You can appear under the filters for “Sexual Orientation”, “Sexual Position”, or even “Communities”, and you miss a lot of opportunities when you don’t show up there if you think that the search/filters is the most used features on A4A.
Adam4Adam also has a “Looking For” section, and selecting either “dating” or “love” helps you find people who are looking for the same thing as you, whether that’s a lifelong relationship or just someone to sleep with for the night.
2. Keep your profile description short and sweet
People on dating apps aren’t going to be looking at just your profile. They’ve probably scrolled through rows and rows of profiles before getting to yours. Dumping a novel’s worth of information on them isn’t going to give them the incentive to talk to you; they might just be intimidated by the wall of text.
It’s best to keep your profile short and sweet, with just enough information to keep the guy intrigued. That way, he’ll be curious to know more about you when the two of you finally meet face-to-face.
3. Change your photos to your most recent ones
Yes, you may have looked really hot in that one photo you took in 2009. But that photo is a decade old and you probably don’t look like that anymore. A more recent photo is a better representation of who you are and prevents you from being accused of catfishing. Besides, if you’ve been using that photo since 2009, people are probably already tired of seeing it and they know that you’ve had this photo for 10 years.
4. Put in more photos of your face
Think about it. Every dating app is swamped with rows and rows of pictures of abs. Sure, they’re nice to look at, but if you’ve spent any amount of time on dating apps they can all end up looking the same. Putting up a face photo immediately makes you stand out in a crowd. Additionally, Google and Apple don’t allow nudity on apps, so if you only plan to put up dick and butthole pics on your profile, you probably won’t show up on Adam4Adam’s app. Keep those shots for when the other guy asks for it.
5. Look outside your “normal”
Sure, you have a preference when it comes to dating. But having a preference doesn’t mean you close yourself off to guys that might not fit that, because then that becomes prejudice. If all of your relationships with your “preferred” guys haven’t worked out, try dating someone out of that. Who knows, you may just find out your match?
