After hours of struggling to get the perfect selfie, you have finally opened up a dating profile. You’ve set it up with a catchy description as well to capture the attention of the perfect girl/boy. But is it enough to land the person of your dreams? It might surprise you, but going by the books here won’t cut it. You’ll be competing with thousands of other equally impressive candidates.
Making others believe that you are the perfect guy requires some thought and ingenuity in coming up with a catchy headline that will compel them to know more about you. Truth be told, the majority of potential candidates won’t even get into your profile as they will be heavily filtering their search results according to location, age and interests. Then they’re going to scrutinize the heading and glance at the photo. If they’re not satisfied with either one of them, they’re not going to even consider entering your profile.
In fact, 8 out of 10 girls check out the heading first and only a couple of them go through the entire profile (this is according to surveys conducted on dating sites). You could even say that the quality of your heading dictates your first impression.
A survey by MarketTools Inc. for Match.com discovered that proper grammar is one of the first determining factors when landing a relationship. Also, a study on 12,000 dating profiles on eHarmony.co.uk revealed that a certain collection of choice words help in attracting mates. To give you the best ideas for dating headlines, I have come up with these most-clicked-on dating profile headlines that infuse the date-factor words with functional grammar and have just enough flare to make your profile stand out over the rest.
If you have a good sense of humor, why not put it to good use? After all, falling in love should be fun! Besides, a lot of profiles focus on depressing and desperate headlines that only serve to ruin the mood. So, why not use a funny headline which might break a smile on whoever is interested in your profile. It’s a good way of lightening up the atmosphere and not seem too desperate for love. Steer clear of boring, typical and needy headlines with the ones listed below.
-Is a full set of teeth that important?
– I would sweep you off your feet but I recently broke my broom.
– Couch potato ending relationship with TV
– Your search is over.
– No Axe Murderers Please!
– Your skinny girlfriend will turn into your fat wife, so why not just cut to the chase and try a fatty out?
-Does spoonin’ lead to forkin’?
– Do you have my glass slipper?
– Been there done that? Me too!
-Free 30 days trial?
– How many more frogs do I have to kiss to find my prince?
-Are you hitting on me?
If humor isn’t your forte, go for the more serious approach. Show what kind of a person you are through your words. You can write about your own interests, hobbies and qualities. You could even quote someone as a show of your knowledge. Many who look for serious, long-term relationships on dating sites prefer simple, witty and genuine headlines over the flashy, humorous ones. But don’t go out of your way to look serious if you’re actually not that kind of person.
– A Scholar and a Gentleman
– Leaving your comfort zone is part of life
– Ambition and Passion go hand in hand
– Hoping to meet a –Area Name– bachelor.
– Are you open to a wonderful possibility?
– I’m looking for something totally different
– Ivy League lawyer seeking life partner
– Funny, Adventurous and Genuine
– Pickup lines won’t get you anywhere with me
– Those that follow have views that never change
While these are among some of the most successful dating site headlines, they have been used in so many profiles that they lack originality and personality. However, they have stood the test of time and do work for the most part. Use them at your own risk as you’re going to coming across a lot of such headlines while you’re browsing profiles.
– Love walking in the rain.
– Guaranteed more fun than your ex!
– Any good e-males out there?
– Down-to-earth angel seeks wings.
– Can you keep up?
– Let me inspire that great smile of yours!
-If FUN was a MUST then I must be the one you’re looking for.
– Bad Boy Seeks Good Girl
– Looking for a partner in crime.
– Some will, some won’t, some do, some don’t. I might!
– Hi, I’m Miss Right, someone said you were looking for me!
-Looking for more than just beauty
And if you are among those who wish to remain single forever, then go ahead and use these terrible headlines that are sure to make anyone cringe. You may be thinking that I’m fooling around but these are actual headlines taken from some of the most popular dating sites on the Internet. In any case, when you are ready to come up with your own headline, please try not to sound anywhere like the ones mentioned below. Side note: a lot of them have awful grammar and spelling.
– Hot latina burn for you
– I still can’t believe I’m here…
-Make me love again, please?
-Searching for that special someone who is willing to win my heart
– I am plagued by trust issues
-No one actually read this, right?
– Where is my Prince Charming?
-Psychos need not apply
– Quit grabbing my but!
-Future ex-boyfriends apply here
Keep on experimenting until you find the perfect headline for your profile. You must understand that everyone’s taste is different. So, a headline that works for one person might not necessarily work for another. While some may find your headline to be attractive, others may find it boring. It’s just a matter of preference.
The point is to keep on trying until you land the best one (you’ll know when you’ve done it right). And it’s best to use a headline that you yourself find nice. That increases your chances of hooking up with someone who shares your likes and dislikes. It helps if you get a little creative and come up with your own headline that doesn’t sound negative, depressing or creepy. But make sure you don’t misspell your words and mess up your grammar cause that will really hurt your chances.
