"[This line] also opens up the door for a variety of interactions," Burns says.

Someone could reply, "A tasty dinner you can whip up for two," or they could tell you to get something vegan, which gives you more info about their eating habits, she says.

People that use "I noticed that" or "you mentioned that" in their messages tend to be successful, Markowitz says.

So, lets look at a few typical examples of bad profiles: “I am not good at writing about myself, but my friends say that I am intelligent, professional, educated and ambitious. I am looking to a meet an intelligent, beautiful woman for dating and relationship.” – at first, this looks like a well-written profile by a guy who seems to have head on his shoulders. There is nothing “catchy” about this profile – there is nothing that would compel a reader to stop and respond to it.

However, it has one major flaw that will make many women skip over it. Lets look at another bad profile: “I went to school in the east coast, but now I work for a major software company where I work up the corporate ladder. I love hiking, watching baseball, and bbq on weekends.” – the writer must be reminded that this is a dating profile – not a resume or a sales presentation in front of his human resources department. as a rule, you should never start your profile by talking about school or work, as it’s not interesting and not really relevant to what you should be trying to achieve – to catch a woman’s attention.” “I love to have fun, party, dance, and drink of my buddies.

The Whole Foods part of this implies that the person is "trendy, health-conscious, and financially able to afford an expensive store," Dr. And the "want me to pick you up anything" part implies immediacy, Dr. "It signals an openness to engage in further positive interaction," she says.

"It implies that he is thinking of the other person, wants to be of help, and wants to see her."Statistically, the most successful opening lines on Ok Cupid, for example, tend to be specific and targeted for their audience, says Dale Markowitz, a data scientist at Ok Cupid.

Some women will think of the writer of the profiles below as weird, but…

ideally you shouldn’t be interested in “most” women anyway, but you should be targeting those women with your profile that you believe you will get along and will have a connection – whether you are looking for a short-term dating, a lifetime partnership or anything in between: “About Me: I would hate to bore you by telling you how wonderful I am by attaching to my name a bunch of flattering adjectives.

With the use of modern technology, people can date via telephone or computer or meet in person.

Dating may also involve two or more people who have already decided that they share romantic or sexual feelings toward each other.

The casual nature of this message reads like something you'd text a long-term partner, so it's "unexpected and silly," Burns says.

Even though it's a little sarcastic, it also implies that you are thinking about the person's needs and would like to see the person — as soon as you get back from Whole Foods, that is.

So, why not start with a bad stuff – I am impulsive and restless at times, I can’t kill a fly, I cried twice like a girl when I watched “Notebook,” I cuss too often, and stay up way too late way too often. And what made you weak in your knees from joy and pleasure?
