I need help with my online dating profile

by singlemomseeking on December 4, 2008

I’m thinking about giving online dating another try. But my profile is one year old — and it clearly needs a tune-up. Can you help me out here?

Let’s face it: if you’re browsing online profiles — whether you’re a man or a woman — you look at the photos first. (If you don’t agree, I’m not sure about you!)

After this, a catchy username might make you pause. And then, there’s the headline. It has to be compelling. Do you agree?

I’m definitely not keeping my former online headline, which went like this: “Are you honest, with a big heart, and no addictions?”

Here’s my favorite so far:

“Single mom seeking single dad…”

I think it’s clear and to the point. But one of my girlfriends has already told me: “You’re being WAY too exclusive! What if he’s a great guy, but he doesn’t have any kids?”

(Note to JDate: I wish you had a way I could search for a man with kids, the same way you can search for certain location, age, etc.)

Your turn: If you have an online profile, what’s your headline? I would love to hear it!

If you were previously online, what was your headline?

And if you’re thinking about trying online dating, let’s hear your headline ideas!
