It’s the same on POF: Now we’re not going to make any snarky comment about these headlines (but seriously, they’re awful, don’t use them).
We just want you to see where they are and what they look like.
This little ditty can compel us to read further, or it can cause us to roll our eyes and move on.
The dating profile headline is a one-time lightning-quick opportunity to show a little flair, and highlight something about your personality or a special interest.
And a well-written dating headline is the first thing that will catch the attention of onlookers.
There are zillions of daters out there in dating-land vying for your attention, hoping that you will recognize that they, uniquely,can fill that magical place in your heart.
Too bad most of them are blowing a great opportunity to grab your attention, and make you want to dig deeper.
If you’re not totally boring (and we’re guessing you aren’t), you want something more interesting than just some variant of “hello,” but you aren’t sure how to distill your entire personality into one phrase or sentence.
We frequently get requests for help from Plenty of Fish (see our review on POF) and Match (our review on Match) members for advice on making their online dating profiles more appealing.
