Even though I’ve just gone on about the source of quote, don’t worry too much if it doesn’t have an author — it will still do the work for you.
It is something you have to write on many dating sites, though, so hopefully you’ve picked up some ideas.
If you’re still completely at a loss for what to say, borrow some famous words.
Scientists from Barts, the London School of Medicine, and The University of North Texas say you should look at the online dating profiles and headlines of people you are interested in and mirror some of those same things. Are the objects of your affection all similarly artistic or athletic or academic? Try something like “I hold an MBA, a library card, and high-brow conversation.” In my experience as an online dating coach, many people won’t even see it.
They’ll be too focused on your pics and the details of your profile to make this your online dating Achilles’ heel.
This is your first impression — the cover of the book, the opening sentence, the hook.
Here are a few examples from current profiles on a popular site: Now be honest, do any of these headlines intrigue you, or make you want to know more about the person? My dating profile led with a quote instead of a position description. It has content (what the quote actually says), it has tone (beautiful, funny, sarcastic, solemn), it reveals something important about you in relation to the author (a Homer Simpson quote says something different to an Anais Nin quote), and it attracts someone who has a similar cultural or literary taste (again Homer Simpson vs Anais Nin).Chose a quote about love because after all that’s what you’re here for.If you don’t have any ideas, look at a Pinterest board like this one.Have you seen any online dating headlines you thought were fantastic? Your dating profile either gets attention from the wrong type of person, or gets totally ignored.None of this was because I’m exceptionally stunning or unique.
