When you start building your profile, you’ll notice on some sites there will be an option or space for a “headline.” The headline section of your dating profile is similar to the headline in a news article or blog post.
Think about the posts that stand out to you when you’re scrolling through Facebook or Twitter.
Make it relevant The best headlines are those which immediately let the viewer know what to expect from the profile.To do this, choose a defining aspect of your personality and construct the headline around it.For instance if you are a person who loves reading, you could come up with something like ‘Booklover looking to begin a new chapter’.If on the other hand you are into sports in a major way, introduce yourself with ‘Here I am. ’ Highlighting a select aspect of your personality would also help you to avoid clichés which make a headline dull and uninteresting to potential dates.If you’re looking for a relationship, you can say “seeking a partner to do ___ with” or simply say “seeking a friend to have coffee with” if you’re only using the site for friendship.
By adding an activity, you’re immediately mentioning one of your hobbies which will be eye catching to someone with shared interests.
So you need to make the most of this part of the dating profile and ensure that it is catchy enough to compel a browser to go through the rest of it.
TIP: Visit to browse photo profiles of single women and men looking for dates.
There are so many people adverting themselves as ‘Warm-hearted’, ‘generous’ or ‘compassionate’ that it becomes easy to ignore them.
On the other hand if you are clear about which aspect of yourself you want to focus on, the headline on your dating profile becomes specific and unique and hence catchier.
Again a headline with negative terms like 'Lonely heart looking for love' may seem depressing; instead use positive words like ‘Bright spark looking for fireworks’.
