If a person be bothered to think of a few interesting words strung together to represent themselves, imagine how stimulating they would be on a date!It also can work to attract someone who has similar interests with one quick zap.Some we created ourselves, and others we borrowed from dating headlines on the web.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.The tagline can showcase your wit, a love of poetry, sense of humor, a romantic or philosophical nature, etc.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.
We perused hundreds of dating site profiles and headlines for red flags or dullsville, so you don’t have to. There are more cringe-worthy headlines than we thought possible.Biggest offenders include those where the author’s lack of imagination or energy just scream out “I can’t be bothered”, or “I’m lame” which of course, all reveal clues about character, intelligence, or confidence.The Dating Gurus are at your service to explain just why a dating profile headline (also known as a tagline) is more important than you would first suspect.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.
If the photos don’t cut it, we generally don’t click on the person. But if we make it past the photo, skimming profiles, the first thing you'll notice is the profile tagline.
This little ditty can compel us to read further, or it can cause us to roll our eyes and move on.
