Funny things to put on a dating site
In this fast-paced, social media-dependent world, we rely on the Internet for everything – from keeping in touch with old school friends and career networking to ordering takeaways and finding a cat-sitter for that weekend away.So it only seems logical you would use the good old Internet for finding that special someone, too.Put your profile into Word and use your computer spell check for peace of mind.Lying doesn’t get you anywhere in the dating world. Talk in specifics to give a full flavour of who you are.If you love travelling, say where your favourite place is and why.‘Play up your love of anything sporty, outdoorsy or public – like concerts and exhibitions.’ Wouldn’t you know, profile photos that demonstrate you playing your guitar or downhill skiing – even if your face isn’t showing – get more messages.Avoid negative tones and always be positive about yourself. You wouldn’t want a future employer to read anything negative, so why would you want a potential partner to read anything that isn’t positive?
After all, it’s not always easy to big yourself up without sounding conceited or (even worse) desperate.
