So you’ve signed up for a dating site like Plenty Of Fish, thought long and hard about your profile, and selected just the right pictures to demonstrate what a great catch you are.
But there’s one area that’s still stressing you out: More specifically, coming up with one of your own. If you’re just hanging out on OKCupid or Christian Mingle, then you’re one of the lucky dudes who don’t need to stress over their headline.
If the photos don’t cut it, we generally don’t click on the person. But if we make it past the photo, skimming profiles, the first thing you'll notice is the profile tagline.
This little ditty can compel us to read further, or it can cause us to roll our eyes and move on.
I scoured the internet for evidence claiming otherwise.
The best I could find was a 2015 academic study, which said "If you can get the potential date to stop and think about your headline message..will increase their liking."I couldn't think of an effective way to check if a dating profile headline was "stop & think" worthy.
Whatever it is, you won’t regret doing your research.
Uploading a photo is one of the first steps is to creating your profile.
Not only will a good dating profile attract men to you, but a good dating profile will also prompt men to message you first.
The 3 most important components are your photos, headline, and text.
Your main photo is the first thing men will notice about you, so it’s worth taking the time to make sure it’s perfect.
The worst thing you could do is use old photos of yourself.
So if you’re interested in optimizing your profile and beating out the competition right off the bat, a catchy dating headline is absolutely essential to piquing a woman’s interest and getting her to click on your profile instead of the other guy’s.
