Dating today is nowhere near the same as it was decades ago. Today, instead of likely meeting someone while at school, work, or through friends, many people are taking their dating lives to the Internet. The popularity of online dating websites like and, as well as the popularity of dating apps like Tinder, has grown tremendously over the years. In fact, more than 41,000,000 people have tried online dating.

When you use online dating, you’re asked to create an online dating profile. This profile is what other users will look at to determine if they want to meet you. Usually, communication is started between you and a prospect to determine if you have anything in common that warrants a real date, and real dates are set forth from there if desired.

Since your Internet dating success rate is based mostly on your profile, you’ll want to ensure you create one that makes you attractive to potential suitors. Here are some tips to help you create the best online dating profile.

Talk about yourself.

Although this may seem obvious, many people use their online dating profile to discuss the person they want to meet instead of themselves, and this is a big no-no. If you want someone to be interested in you, it’s important to talk about you. It is okay to mention what you’re looking for, but be sure the majority of your profile discusses you instead of what you want.

Be positive.

Most online profiles will ask you to list likes and dislikes, and if your dislikes far outnumber your likes, you may turn off potential suitors. Being too negative can have a negative impact on your love life. After all, if your entire profile is one big complaint, nobody will want to meet you in real life and listen to Negative Nancy all night long.

Instead, be positive. Talk about what you love to do and what you like to do. If there is something you don’t like, try turning into a positive. For example, if you hate a certain genre of music, talk about the type of music that you do like instead. This will be much more attractive.

Look your best, but in a real way.

Because most people make snap judgments based on the picture they see, it’s important that you put a decent profile picture on your profile to make you attractive to suitors. However, it’s also important that you don’t lie. For example, if you’re 40, putting a picture of yourself from when you were 21 is not a good idea. The individual who wants to meet you for a date will be very disappointed when you don’t look like your picture.

Take a real picture of yourself and put it on your profile. Do your best to make yourself attractive, such as by doing your hair, wearing makeup, and smiling. (Hint: This would be a good time to visit the dentist to give you the best smile, such as through teeth whitening or dental implants.) By using an attractive yet realistic picture of yourself, you’ll be more likely to impress the individual you date in person.

Belly button rings

When my niece was living with me in 2002, she was asking me every day to let her do something radical to her appearance. One day she was telling me that she wanted to pierce her tongue (I said no) and the next day she wanted to shave her head. I actually said “yes” to that, but she didn’t do it. I think she was just testing me on that one. I kept telling her that I had promised her parents that while she was in my care that I would not let her get any body piercings or any tattoos. If they wanted to let her decorate her body in that fashion then they could take her to the piercing salon and tattoo parlor herself.

The requests did not stop, however. At least once a week she would ask me if she could get her tongue pierced, or her naval pierced. Or even her nose a couple of times. For a while I stated just saying “no you can’t pierce anything or tattoo anything” before I even said “Hi!” So it was with much glee and satisfaction when she went back to live with her parents at the end of the school year that she got her naval and tongue pierced AND got a couple of tattoos as well! I think she thought that I’d be angry with her about it, but I didn’t care at all. In fact I was more than happy to give her a couple of pretty belly button rings for Christmas that next holiday season!

Hand Sanitizers to the rescue

Using public restrooms can be tricky these days. I really don’t like using public restrooms, like most people I suppose, and having a bad experience in a smelly dirty ladies room can really mess up my day. I just don’t understand how the general public can be so nasty and disrespectful to the people the run it, use it and clean it.

I’m glad that more and more companies are offering paper towels once again because those electric hand dryers are the pits. I have to have a paper towel to use to turn the water on and off, as well as to dry my hands and then to use to open the door and possibly even turn off the light switch. So the places that are just offering those electric hand dryers really upsets me.

That is another reason I carry hand sanitizers with me just about everywhere I go these days. A great option to use if you can’t manage to keep germ-free any other way.
