Scientists from Barts, the London School of Medicine, and The University of North Texas say you should look at the online dating profiles and headlines of people you are interested in and mirror some of those same things. Are the objects of your affection all similarly artistic or athletic or academic? Try something like “I hold an MBA, a library card, and high-brow conversation.” In my experience as an online dating coach, many people won’t even see it.
A study of 1.2 million profiles by Plenty of Fish showed women who got into a relationship online used the word “relationship” 16 percent more than women who were still single. Why not be honest and speak from that place in your heart?
If they don’t and it’s still funny, you look like you’re funny and original. Apparently people who talk about relationships and love find relationships and love.
A study by researchers at Queen Mary University of London shows men like women whose names draw to their physical attractiveness, while women like men whose attributes are showcased as intelligent, cultured, brave, and altruistic.
I would say this means owning what you are — all of it — because confidence receives 23 percent more responses.
If you look at these terms carefully, you’ll see the theme is they evoke an attractive picture in the mind’s eye of the reader.
Some stereotypes hold true in the online dating sciences, namely men falling in love with what they see and women with what they hear. Paint the portrait of yourself with words that attract the opposite sex.
