How attuned are you with your own self? Are there values, interests, or personality traits that make you truly shine? At Khadijah Elite, we’re firm believers in a multi-step approach to online dating – after all, a relationship is a journey that can be winding and full of adventures for either half. By following our phased approach, you’ll notice that in-person meetings aren’t recommended until the fourth phase, a period where neither member should be messaging someone else and instead are focused on each other.
With that in mind, and in hopes of helping you make a great first impression, here are some tips for writing an online dating profile.
Be Honest and Friendly
What books do you like? How about favourite foods, pastimes, or newly discovered hobbies that you can’t get enough of? Now is the time to demonstrate your personality and interests to other members, giving them a more transparent idea of who you are as a person. Of course, there’s a limit to bear in mind – you don’t want to come across as too try-hard or desperate, but you also don’t want to sell yourself short in terms of the appealing values you surely possess. Bonus points for an open mind, good sense of humour, and an optimistic mindset – all quality traits that members will surely cherish should they wish to get to know you through the later phases.
In addition to clarifying who you really are, this is a chance to help more nervous but potentially ideally matched members feel more comfortable interacting with you. Since the early phases of the Khadijah Elite journey limit visual messaging based on the woman’s preferences, this is the time to ensure both members of a potential match feel safe, respected, and willing to interact with one another.
Make it “Scroll-Friendly” (Easy to Read)
Of course, there is such a thing as too much information, especially when it comes to online dating profiles. After all, you want there to be plenty for the two of you to chat about in later phases of the journey including in-person meetings! There’s a fine balance to strike in this regard, in that you don’t want to neither bore a reader nor stress them out with an overload of details. Keep your profile short, sweet, and sensible, touching on important points and aspects of your personality that should be provided at the forefront of any potential relationship. If each member can understand whether the other is a right fit for one another, then mission accomplished!
Choosing the Right Photos
While women have the ability through Khadijah Elite to limit the viewing of the photos at their discretion, this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be careful about the images you may eventually share with another member. After all, a picture says a thousand words so, in that sense, choosing the right one is an essential part of writing an online dating profile! You don’t want to come across as overly formal or “stuffy,” but rather genuine and fun – an accurate portrayal of your personality can go a long way! If there’s a photo of you posing with your beloved pet or a shot of yourself enjoying a favourite hobby, these are excellent images to include.
Ensure Your Writing is of High Quality
If English is not your first language, know that you are not alone. Should your profile have typos, spelling mistakes, and/or grammar issues, don’t be hard on yourself – instead, be proud of your efforts! While it’s important to have a profile with a few such errors as possible – an indication of your detail orientation and how you wish to present yourself – you don’t have to make such corrections on your own. In fact, reaching out to a friend or loved one for help may present new ideas on traits, hobbies, or other aspects of your personality to include. Your closest family and friends know you best, so embrace their input to make your profile and writing quality even more engaging!
