People often use cliches, filler sentences, and self-aggrandizement to make certain information more interesting than it is. Don't be that guy. NEVER use words like ‘adventurous’ or ‘spontaneous.’ And it should go without saying, but DON'T TALK ABOUT YOUR EXES. “Try to write the way you speak,” Hoehn advises. “You’re not writing a book report. You want someone to relate to you...[Your matches] want to know what your life is like now, in the present.”
As counterintuitive as it seems, online dating is a medium largely hinged on the written word. It's easy to get lost in the optics and forget just how important you narrative is. And sometimes, you need perspective. Writing a good profile requires you to be unbiased and self-analyzing -- things Hoehn says are hard to sift apart.
