Do your online dating profiles make the cut?

My online dating profile was almost complete.  The only thing that I wanted to add was a video of myself.  To gain some insight about exactly what people put on their online dating profiles, the ones with videos, I decided to look at a few… 

I quickly came to discover that online profile videos have a lot of good points and well…bad points. 

I learned that you should not mention prior relationships in the video or mention characteristics about someone you dated in the past.  Many of the videos that I painfully went through contained people comparing what they had to what they were now looking for in a new relationship. It was very clear to me that his was NOT the way to go.

The online profile that you build should be about you, and the type of relationship you are looking for. So after deciding what to focus on I started the prep work for the video recording.

To my surprise it turned out to be much more intimidating than I thought. While looking at one of the takes, I realized nervously that people were going to judge me physically, mentally, emotionally… My entire personality was going to be scrutinized based on the video!

I dealt with this by thinking: I can always make it better, I can always take it down. There is nothing binding about the video or your profile. My best advice now is to get one uploaded and see what happens.

The other online dating profiles that I viewed that had videos were not that great in my opinion.  the videos were in many cases long winded with people going on and on about themselves.  In my profile I provided detailed information regarding my likes and dislikes.  I included information about my background and a bit of family history but I did not go on and on…

I have to say that some of the better online dating profiles that I looked at were well worded and the videos looked and sounded great.  I took in all of the information that I could and tried to put together a profile that had all of the learning from the online video profiles that sI wanted to attract people to my profile that matched well with me.  I did not want anyone and everyone to try to get me to go out on a date.

I stayed as true to myself as I could and learned as much as I could from other online dating profiles.  Let’s see what happens!
