Elite Singles Partner Psychologist, Relationship Coach Sam Owen, explains that, “Online daters will be asking themselves questions like, if his/her written language is sloppy, does that mean they’ll have a sloppy attitude towards me, not respect my time, turn up dressed shabby, forget commitments they’ve made to me if we started dating?

Your online profile is there to help those you're matched with find out who you genuinely are.

Owen explains that, “Most people also prefer humility in others, so bragging is often a sure-fire way to repel someone.

The first prompt usually asks you to choose a username that you would like to be identified by.

Dos of Choosing a Username: The ‘about me’ section of your profile is absolutely crucial when it comes to finding a potential match through an online dating site.

Successful online dating relies on your dating profile giving a memorable first impression.

But, how can you let people quickly and easily get a true sense of who you are?

An upbeat attitude is essential if you want to win people over, so sit down to write your profile when you are in a positive frame of mind.

Be interesting, distinguish yourself, and express your personality as much as you can.

Owen explains that, “We build up an idea of a person’s personality by looking at their photo, how they have posed, their facial expression, the clothes they are wearing and much more.

If you provide people with those cues they feel they can make more of an informed decision as to whether or not to pursue you.” Steer clear of dating profile photo fails; in the UK, 33% of survey respondents said they’d turned off most from a photo that was too revealing, followed by wearing sunglasses (18%) and bad photo-shopping (16%).

52% of our survey respondents said they wouldn't open a profile without a photo.
