International dating is characterized by online platforms these days because everything is digital now. So, if you are on a dating website and looking to improve your online dating profile, this article is absolutely for you!

How to write a summary about yourself:

A summary about yourself is a key area that you need to focus on while writing an online dating profile. Now I’d like to provide you with a list of interesting and creative items that you can imitate when you write the summary about yourself –

I’m very OK with:

  1. Waking up very early & enjoying the whole day instead of rolling into bed just as the sun is rising;
  2. Getting rid of Yelp to explore a new city by simply walking around until a local restaurant or coffeehouse inspires me to stroll in randomly;
  3. Old movies such as Casablanca;
  4. Reading a real book before its e-version is released;
  5. Attending personal development seminars and business development workshops;
  6. Not looking at Facebook, Twitter and Instagram when I’m on holiday or visiting my relatives;
  7. Attempting new recipes at home.

How to describe your lifestyle in a stimulating way:

When you describe what you are doing with your life on your online dating profile, you need to show the best version of yourself without bragging! Let me give you a good example below:

By day, I am in the Customer Service Department of a major shopping mall. The rest of the time? Adoring Los Angeles and surrounding myself with friends who make me cry from laughing too hard & inspire mini adventures on a daily basis.

From this example, it can be seen that this guy has a real job and an exciting lifestyle which is full of good fun. These are positive elements that should be displayed on an online dating profile.

How to effectively describe your interests and hobbies on your online dating profile:

Here is a great example for you –

I am really good at swimming.

My favorite movies are: Star Wars, Yes Man, Revolutionary Road, The Reader, Titanic, Sleepless in Seattle, You’ve Got Mail and The Age of Adaline or anything with Brad Pitt.

My favorite books are: The 4 Hour Body, Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself, Outrageous Openness, The Obstacle Is the Way, 48 Laws of Power, and diving into classics such as Gone with the Wind and Wuthering Heights for the first time. I also like audio books while I’m working out at the gym!

My favorite TV shows are: Friends, Desperate Housewives, Mad Men, X Factor, Grey’s Anatomy and House of Cards.

My favorite music: Madonna, Savage Garden, Enya, Backstreet Boys, Cher, Justin Timberlake, Westlife and Michael Jackson.

My favorite food: sushi, pizza, anything with salmon, and matcha (that’s green tea on steroids.)

Seven things that I can’t do without:

  1. My diary
  2. Coffee
  3. Gym membership
  4. Good music
  5. Kindle
  6. My smartphone
  7. My laptop

I spend lots of time thinking about how mad it is that my kids will never remember much about the 20th century, how I can help other people, and how this mysterious world works.

On a typical Saturday I am sitting in a movie theatre. Yes, I like going to the movies instead of watching DVDs at home.

The most private thing I am happy to admit is I have never read anything written by William Shakespeare.

You should totally send me a message if you highly value knowledge and experience in life, and you have been told that you are an intelligent, interesting and caring individual.

As you can see, the final part is a Call to Action (CTA), meaning you invite other members on the international dating site to contact you at the end of your online dating profile.

If someone likes your online dating profile and contacts you, here’s how to keep the communication going:

  1. (after you have been chatting for a while) “I hope the rest of your day is great without me… or sort of 😊”
  2. “I shouldn’t send text messages when I’m working; nevertheless, you keep tempting me to take out my telephone. I knew you were trouble 😊”
  3. “I can’t stop thinking about you and it’s annoying me 😉”
  4. “I had an interesting dream about you before I woke up today…” (and when she unavoidably asks what the dream was about, this is your reply): “Well, I can’t say that, yet I’ve never imagined that side of you previously 😊”
  5. (to start a video or audio chat): “I haven’t heard your charming voice for a very long time.”
  6. (to suggest an international trip): “My fingers are tired of typing so many text messages – we have to meet in person soon or my fingers might give up on me.”

Bonus tips:

Your online dating profile and the way you communicate on an international dating website determine the quality of matches you will have. So, apart from the above-mentioned strategies, I’d like to provide you with more powerful techniques right now.

Truthfully, women live to serve men on a level that women will never admit, and that most men wouldn’t even believe. When women wear makeup and good clothes and high heels, spend money on facials, go to the gym, join parties and socialize – on some level, this is all because of a tiny voice in their heads which says, “If I do this, men will pay more attention to me.”

Once you’ve understood female psychology, you can use it to your advantage and flip a woman’s attraction switches whenever you want!

So, this is what you’ll say while chatting with an elegant lady online:

1.“You are a true lady.”

This sentence works well because most women receive compliments about their looks, e.g. “You are pretty” and “You are so beautiful”. But very few women receive compliments about their personality in the right ways – maybe someone will say “You are so kind”, but that’s still far away from “You are a true lady”. Please let me explain.

After a woman reads your online dating profile and decides you are a cool guy, the communication has to add value to her life so that she will want to keep talking to you. Thus, you need to show authentic admiration by telling her that you like her personality in a comprehensive way. Hence, “You are a true lady” communicates these elements clearly: A) You think she is very elegant. B) You think she is the right person for a long-term relationship. C) You are serious; you are not a player.

And that’s exactly what women want to hear.

2. “I love it when you talk about your art/writing/music/hobbies…”

Usually, you can see what a lady’s interests are on her online dating profile. But you also need to discuss her interests and hobbies with her while talking to her on the international dating website – most men are thinking about themselves and their own interests, but you should be different from most men 😊

“Whenever you compliment a lady on an international dating site, remember to be specific and make sure your compliments are accurate.”
