Dating Guru Profile Review: LUCKSTAR89

Monday, April 20th, 2015

Here is our latest online

profile review for you

Here’s a look at his current profile.

Nickname:
LuckyStar would be a wonderful nickname, but LuckStar doesn’t mean anything. Unless there’s a reason for it I’d suggest you change it. After all, people call you Lucky not Luck!

Photos:

You have a nice photo as your main image. I think women will respond well as you look friendly, smart and approachable.   You look fun and presentable in your album shots too so all good choices.

Interesting Fact:

Your Fact is OK but the “you’ll have to find out” comment isn’t enough. When people write it’s usually because they can’t think of anything more imaginative.

There’s nothing particularly wrong with you profile text, but there’s still room for improvement.  You’ve written a list of things about yourself but it’s better to demonstrate exactly what you mean.

For example – you say you are spontaneous so give an example about at time you were spontaneous.  You could say,  I am often spontaneous and once jumped on the first plane that was leaving the airport.  When you do this it’s much more interesting than reading a long list.

You’ve put the line in about winking for interest, but you’d get a much better success rate if you just emailed them in the first place. Winking can perhaps give the impression you can’t be bothered to write a proper message. It’s the people who take the time to send a short personalised message that get the results.

Again, this is fine but it’s very generic.  Who doesn’t want to meet someone with a similar outlook and enjoys life?   Can you try and paint a picture that would make someone think “Yes that’s me he’s looking for” ?

I hope this helps,

James

Dating Profile Review: Neat

Monday, November 18th, 2013

Here is our latest online

 

profile review for you

Here’s a look at her current profile.

Photos:

You have a lovely main head shot photo.   You are smiling happy and look like someone who would be fun to contact.   You also have some nice album shots too.   The museum sign shot probably isn’t needed as it’s not clear what it’s about and you aren’t that visible.  The others are great though!

OK, that might well be true but it’s not especially “interesting.”   Almost everyone writes that they like travelling in their profile so try and think of something more imaginative.  I like the travel buddy request as it’s a good way for someone to start a conversation with you, but I’d move that to the end of your “looking for” section instead.

Why do you have to “guess” that you need to do something?   It’s a weak wishy washy statement and makes you look like you have a hard job making decisions :)

So definitely take that out and make bold, positive statements only.  Having said that, the rest of the text is good.   Men want to know you are fun and low maintenance as it makes their lives easier.  In return, you’ll get more interest.

You just need to expand on your interests.  For example, rather than simply listing them, you could say things like  “I’m passionate about cooking and I love to learn new recipes.  I recently made a fantastic chocolate cake and I may pass on the recipe if our first date goes well!”

This starts off well but I think you really need  a clearer idea of the person you would like to meet.   Otherwise you won’t know when you finally meet them.  It’s good to be open minded, but it would help to list a few things that are important to you.  I’d leave out the bit about being manly and having nice biceps as it may make  decent guys think they have no chance.  You can still have this but making sure you contact guys who appear to have these traits.

In fact, that’s my final tip to you.  You’ve not contacted anyone!   You can’t sit back and wait for the men to wink or contact you.   Instead, you have to send out lots of messages to men you are interested in.  That’s the only way you can make this work and beat the competition :)

I hope this helps,

James

here is another profile review

Here’s a look at her current profile:

 

 

Ok, this is a hard one!   You’ll be pleased to hear that I think you have a pretty good profile.

You look good in your photos and have clearly taken the time to write an interesting profile.  I can see you are getting a lot of interest, so something is clearly working.

You also have a great username!

However, you’ve asked me for help…so here are some suggestions:

1) You have a good selection of photos, but some of them are quite  dark/blurry when you look at your album.

2) You say you enjoy all those activities, but there is no evidence of this in your photos.  Perhaps add one or two of you taking part in them, to give the album more fun and variety.

3) You come across as a bit of a “tough cookie”    That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but you could try softening it a little. At the moment you sound very strong minded and masculine.

4)  Write more about the person you’d like to meet.  It’s quite generic at the moment and could apply to lots of people.   You need to write something that resonates with your Mr Right!

5) No need to write things like “If you would like to read further”  as it’s just extra padding.  It’s always better to focus on selling yourself rather than pointing out obvious things.

Good luck!

Here is another

 

profile review for you

Here’s a look at his current profile:

 

 

Thank you for your request.  Your profile is very friendly and you definitely come across as a nice guy.   However, there are some improvements you could make.

Here are a few suggestions that may help:

1) Do you have any more photos?  Just one isn’t really enough.  Perhaps try a full body shot or one of you wearing something smarter.  I think you look a little embarassed in your current photo…as if you didn’t really want it taken.

2) The main profile text is fine but it’s quite generic.  What is special about you?

3)Ask a question or end with an invitation.  It will help women looking at it find a reason to get in touch with you.

4) You only seem to have actually contacted three people?  Online Dating is competitive so you must contact anyone that you like the look of, with a reply paid credit. That way they can read and respond.  The messages you have sent are too long so cut them down and get to the point!

5) What exactly is your job? I’d expect that most people would be a little confused by it?

6)  Finally, most of your interests are very “masculine”   You want to list some that women can have in common with you.  It’s fine to talk about what you like but think of some things that a partner can identify with.  At the moment, Formula 1, Snooker and DIY are unlikely to be good matches.

 

I hope this helps,

James

Dating Profile Review: Ms Smile

Due to popular request

here is another profile review

Here’s a look at her current profile:

 

 

This is a much tougher call than normal as you are doing lots of things right!

Firstly, you have a lovely smiling photo and also a great user name.  It’s so important to come across as a friendly, like able person and you sell yourself well in the profile text too.

You have a good mix of hobbies and sound very interesting which is fantastic.

However, there are a few suggestions that may help:

1) Believe it or not, but there are some men who may feel intimidated by you, your lifestyle and your job.   So for this reason you may not get as much contact as you like.  That’s actually good news as you filter out anyone who isn’t a good match right away.

2) Add your religion or parent’s religion even if you aren’t practising.  This is because this is important to a lot of people and they search for this when looking.  By not specifying at all, you won’t come up in their searches.

3) This is the MOST important tip I can give you.  You don’t seem to have actually contacted anyone on the website?   To get success, you can’t sit back and wait for the guys to contact you.  It’s competitive so you must contact anyone that you like the look of, with a reply paid credit.  That way they can read and respond.

It’s not about how many clicks or emails you get, but about you targeting the right men for you.  If you need more help with this then please contact me directly.

4) Move the bit about your job to the “about your job” section.    The same goes for the interesting fact, which we use at the events as an icebreaking tool.  You could move the section about zip-lining here.

4) Finally, do write a bit more about the person you hope to meet.  You need to write something that will resonate with them and make it feel like you are connecting with them directly.  Think about who this could be.  What are their interests, hopes and dreams?

I hope this helps,

James

Here is another free Profile Review

from our Dating Guru

Here’s a look at your current profile:

 

My first thoughts are that while you have a great photo, the second photo looks even better.  Try and change it and see what happens.

More importantly,  you really need to write more about yourself.

Most of the things you write could be said by 99% our members.  Would anyone describe themselves as dishonest or that they can’t stand their friends or family?  It’s just too generic.

Talk about what makes you special and why you are different from everyone else on the site.  What else do you like to do in your spare time?  What are you passionate about?  Is there anywhere you would like to visit?
You’ve also duplicated the section about the type of person you want to meet.  I’d suggest you take that out of the first section and then spend a little more time describing the person you wish to date.

It’s good that you add on an invitation as it gives everyone a reason to contact you.

Dating Profile Review – MrValentino

Monday, March 11th, 2013

Here is our first free Profile Review

from our very own Dating Guru

Here’s a look at your current profile:

 

Ok, I’ll start with some good news for you – your profile is actually pretty good!  You’ve clearly spent time putting it together and making it sound interesting.  You are also proving popular on the site which is great.   However, there are few tips I can suggest that may improve your chances even further:

1) Smiling Photos.  You mention that you do smile but your photos look so very glum and serious.  They are fine for album shots, but you’ll get more interest if you add a few happier shots.

2) Don’t say you look young for your age, but let others make their own mind up.  There’s not a day that goes by without someone telling me they don’t look their age.

3) Everyone says they like staying in or going out, so try and describe this in a littl more details. It stops it being too generic.

4) Explain a little more about your job as not everyone will understand that it is that you do.

5) Get rid of the last line “Arrogant, high maintenance and pretentious women may need not apply! ”      I understand why you put this but it makes you sound very negative and might put a suitable partner off contacting you.  It’s better to try and remain friendly and positive at all times.

Other than that you’ve got a great profile, so stay proactive and contact lots of people and you’ll reap the results.
