When you first sign up with match.com, you’ll be asked to give some basic info about yourself.

You’ll be able to pick the words that best describe you, and give others an idea of the things you’re interested in, be it eating out, dancing or volunteering.

But with so many profiles on match.com, it’s important to make your dating profile stand out from the crowd.

Your online dating profile is your selling point, allowing you a prime opportunity to showcase your best photos and your unique personality.

Your dating profile will be a major factor in your dating success, so it’s essential that it says the right things about you, and truly reflects what you’re looking for in a dating partner.

Have a look at what other members are writing for some inspiration, or ask your friends to describe you.

Remember that most members don’t have time to read every ad they see so tend to scan them.

Alternatively, if you’ve said reading is a passion of yours, give your profile viewers a brief review of your favourite novel.

Use open questions and make it easy for others to ask your about your interests using these interest-writing tips.

With this is mind it’s good to use ‘buzz words’ that stand out, for example place names, film titles, football teams…whatever will make someone stop and linger on your profile.

Giving your profile a headline is the perfect chance to make your profile distinctive.

Consider what you’re all about and what it is you’re looking for, and make sure your headline reflects this.
