Online dating and the ‘old fashion’ way both get results

I have gone rounds and rounds with singles debating whether or not online dating works.

Without a doubt I think online dating works and is one of the many tools singles should have in their dating tool box.

For the past 15 years I have been helping my clients, friends and family with online dating. Over the last decade not only have I used online dating successfully but so have those I have coach, as well as many happy couples I have met along the way. Now this does not mean there are some pitfalls to online dating, in fact there are many. These usually come from our lack of understanding how to use online dating to meet the type of person we are seeking.

To lead online daters through the twists and turns and to help them avoid the pitfalls of online dating I was inspired to write my forthcoming book, “Click – The Ultimate ‘How To’ Guide to Online Dating”. I am also writing more online dating advice articles to further help my clients and readers.

To kick off my online dating advice articles I thought we should start at the beginning. I am excited to bring to you over the next couple weeks 7 Tips to Writing a Captivating Online Dating Profile.

Tip #7 to Writing a Captivation Online Dating Profile

Keep Your Online Dating Profile to 200 and 300 words

Like an advertising copy you want it to draw in the reader and you want to balance between sharing enough and not to much. I suggest above keeping the length of your online dating profile to 200 and 300 words however the sweet spot is 190 to 230 words.

It’s good to know that when it comes to writing a profile for one of these sites, that I need to be focused and deliberate. I love the idea of knowing that guys are actually looking at my profile and paying attention to what I have to say.
