Building a good dating profile

I’ve already expressed my argument for why in two posts: one on how critical it is to find the right life partner and how seriously we should take that quest, and another on why going to bars is a terrible life experience.

The first step in ending up with the right person is meeting the right person, and for something so important in our lives, we’ve had for doing it efficiently and intelligently.

For socially weird or anxious or shy people, trying to meet a stranger in public is a nightmare, and even for someone charming and outgoing, it’s a grueling task that requires a lot of luck.

The alternative that often happens is meeting someone through friends, which can work, but it’s limiting yourself to single people your closest friends and family happen to know.

The first prominent online dating site was Match.com, which launched in 1995.

e Harmony started in 2000, Ok Cupid in 2004, and more recently, a wave of mobile people-swiping apps, like Tinder and Hinge, have become wildly popular.

Giving the excuse of Thanksgiving as a framing device, the site looked at how food relates to increasing your likability.

As it turns out, mentioning food on your profile makes you more likeable. The dating site said that it discovered that talking about food in your profile "makes you more attractive" but with the caveat that only certain foods will make you popular.

Chocolate, 100 percent; salad, 97 percent; sushi, 93 percent; avocado, 91 percent; pasta, 75 percent; cheese, 75 percent; cake, 72 percent; burger, 68 percent.So in 2030, I think we’ll be somewhere very different, and I think today’s nine-year-olds will have really incredible ways of finding love when they’re 25.y fundamental approach to profile writing is to show not tell.As for the current online dating options—they strike me as a good first crack at this by humanity, but the kind of thing we’ll significantly improve on to the point where the way it was done in 2014 will seem highly outdated in not too many years.Now that the stigma has diminished, you know this industry is going to race ahead because there’s so much money to be made by whoever can be innovative.
