If you aren’t getting hits on your online dating site profile, it may be because you’ve listed something that has completely turned off potential dates. Even the slightest of things can make someone turn away from you, but if you know what not to list you can get a better understanding of why you aren’t getting dates. Here are three things you should never list on your dating profile.
Don’t Brag About Money Or Power
Nothing turns a woman off faster (unless she’s a gold-digger, and that’s probably not the kind of woman you want to forge a long term relationship with) than a man who does nothing but brag about how much money he makes, how big his house is and how many imported luxury vehicles he has. Ever heard that song by Jennifer Lopez, “My Love Don’t Cost a Thing”? It’s true. Let a woman get to know you before you go bragging about how many employees work under you, your six figure salary, and that you can take her to Cancun whenever she wants to go.
Don’t Talk Badly About Exes
If ex-wives or girlfriends come up in conversation, don’t bad-mouth them, especially if you have children with these women. And never list your ex’s bad qualities on a dating site. Any woman reading that will automatically think about “how badly will he talk about me if we break up?” If you’re willing to speak badly about the mother of your children, you’re more likely willing to speak ill of any woman you feel did wrong to you, even if it the wrong-doing was mild. It reflects poorly on your character to badmouth an ex to the Internet. Plus, it makes you look immature and spiteful.
Don’t Ask For A Lifetime Of Commitment Or A Soul-Mate
You know how most dating websites ask you to put a title on your profile? Don’t make yours, “Looking for my soul-mate” or “Looking for The One.” This just screams desperate. Are you looking for commitment from someone you meet online? Also, don’t put into your profile that you’re so many years old and you want to be married and starting a family within the next two. That’s a whole lot of pressure to put on to someone who hasn’t even met you yet and that type of pressure before a first date usually means there won’t even be a date.
