As a dating coach, I've worked with singles from all over the world who are totally frustrated by online dating. I tell them the same thing I'm about to tell you: meeting the person of your dreams on a dating app is all about proper marketing.
Basic profiles yield basic results. One badly lit photo, weird facial expression, or empty bio can take you from living happily ever after with the woman of your dreams to being the old guy at the pub that everyone calls "Old Yeller." I scored a fiancé on Tinder -- but almost missed him because he was alone in all of his photos. Did this guy not have any friends? I was about to swipe left, but his profile was intriguing and he was definitely attractive. Figuring I could always unmatch him later I swiped right. But we almost missed each other -- just because he didn't have a good balance of images.
To help you avoid easy mistakes and keep you from spending the foreseeable future alone, here's a four-step plan to make your profile more attractive and land you a date with the person of your dreams.
