I am going to go ahead and state that this post pertains mainly to men, but it’ll also work for the ladies to filter out the guys that aren’t just sending you messages based on your pictures. This is to help you benefit the most from people who actually read profiles, and I am going to say more women do this than men.
So on with the love it or hate it dating profile.
A popular car designer came up with a theory around 10 years ago and it’s been in place ever since. That theory was to design “love it or hate it” vehicles. Bland gets overlooked, but if they are head over heels for the design they will buy it, and f%ck the haters – you can design something else for them. Bland “don’t offend anyone” design was popular in the 80’s and 90’s when cars looked like boxes or blobs, but since around 2005 its been all about love it or hate it.
Don’t be “vanilla” when creating your dating profile in an attempt to be liked by everyone that reads it. Write out who you are, what you like and what you do not like in a creative and positive way. Yeah, this will turn some viewers away, but it’ll also pull in others and hopefully prompt them to send you a note. Show who the real you is and try as hard as you can to be unique and real.
I put this into place 3 days ago and I haven’t just received messages, I’ve received notes from women that have their claws out. I’ve seen this vigor before, but not this much this often. Hell, I have a 39-year-old from Wisconsin (no clue how she even found me) ready to jump on a plane and 3 locals vying for position.
