Looking for love is probably one of the toughest missions a hooman can set out on, apart from staying in love happily ever after. All jokes aside, the Pew Research data has shown that nearly half of U.S. adults – and a majority of women – say that dating has become harder in the last 10 years.

As if that wasn't enough, the worldwide pandemic and uncertain times we live in have made people reevaluate their dating priorities, as more singletons now read people’s bios on dating apps instead of just swiping based on looks. We all seek lasting connection, and a good dating bio can surely give you at least a distant prospect of it, right?

Well, except that a nice dating bio is not a common occurrence. On the contrary, people who’re in the dating scene keep coming up with introductions that are weird, questionable, arrogant, you name it. Below is a selection of the most eyebrow-raising ones that will make you wonder what on earth they were thinking!

To find out what a good online dating profile should sound like to give you real chances of finding your other half out there, as well as what mistakes to avoid in a bio, we spoke with Alex Wong. Wong is a professional copywriter and content strategist who “helps people capture more leads, traffic, and sales by 'hijacking' their prospects' minds with irresistible content.”

Among his many different copywriting services, Wong offers dating writing services for both men and women that he says will double people’s matches and dates. Whether you’re on OKCupid, Tinder, Match.com, POF, Bumble or Hinge, Wong will ghostwrite a compelling dating app profile that helps people get that coveted in-person date.

Wong told us that some of the most common mistakes people make when writing their profile are just being bland and generic. “There is nothing that sets them apart from the thousands of other profiles. It's important to find ways to stand out and present yourself in an interesting way,” he explained.

Another common faux pas is failing to spend time thinking about what you want in a partner or relationship. “Your profile should clearly show what type of person and relationship you are looking for. This helps to attract your ideal prospects and filters out those who are poor matches.”

[sarcasm on] Yeah because being raped is always a choice... [sarcasm off]. Though being raped can cause all kinds of mental issues since it is most likely a highly traumatic experience, holding it against someone and discarding them because of it, is a really shitty move, that will only make the problems biggers.

I was raped by my grandfather as a child and I can tell you I've met people like this who do not want to have anything to do with me because I've been raped. I've been called damaged and that they are no longer interested. I've got half way through explaining my past to guys (definitely not on first date, I waited until I was comfortable to share) who would put their hand up and say no they don't want to listen and I would quietly watch as any interested in me faded from that point onwards It's lonely as I find it hard to think anyone would ever want me or care to even listen but I would certainly rather be alone than with a guy like this Actually might make a tinder with a bio of "I'm a survivor of CSA and have complex-PTSD please don't contact me if this is an issue for you" It'll certainly weed out the bad ones!

One can honestly not feel attracted to overweight or underweight people. That's fine. But how one expresses this, is another matter. See, how I managed to explain that? Instead of saying "you dumbass, how can you not get it!?"? And *that* is the difference.

Your profile is one of the most important aspects when it comes to determining your success online, Wong argues. “Since prospects can’t see you in person, they can only rely on your profile to determine whether you're worth getting to know you better. And you only have a second to do this.”

“Besides your profile, your texting skills, getting matches engaged, setting updates, and filtering poor matches are also critical,” he added.

When it comes to the main features of a good dating profile, Wong said that it should have an engaging, well-written bio/prompts and a good collection of photos. “When writing your profile, spend some time thinking about what you have to offer and what you are looking for in a partner. Think about interesting traits, hobbies, and experiences that you can include in your bio.”

Wong also suggests having at least 4-6 great photos. “Generally, it's best to include a mix of pictures showing different aspects of yourself. Avoid putting photos together that are too similar, and save sunglasses photos for the end. It's also best to use not more than 1 selfie and 1 group photo.”

Good news! They just found a better treatment for cryoaudiovascularmalexia (CAVM). A regular (2-3/days) application of a cricket bat on your family jewls. The cricket bat must generate an impact in the range of 3500-4700N. A good thing is that there are no requirements regarding the person who applies the treatment: men, women, cute, not cute... even cows could do the job. Don't need to say thanks.

Having said that, Wong also reminds everyone to remember that online dating takes time. “Although dating apps have made it easier to meet people, it has also increased the level of competition. Anyone can sign up for an account. I think people expect instant results when this isn’t the case,” he said.

Moreover, according to the professional copywriter, “users should constantly be testing and tweaking aspects of their bio, photos, texts, etc. to see what works. You can’t expect to get results if you don’t put in the work.”

@Joonscrab. I fully agree with you. I signed in just to update you and to comment this. So, this is my first comment in this site. Before down voting me, please understand I'm a woman who has lived my whole life in india. I know western countries have "incels" but most of the men here are just the same. Most of them don't know how to cook, or clean. Those living in hostels , bring clothes to their home to get washed. In most families men goes to work and come back and relax, while women goes to work after finishing house chores, taking care of kids, and cooking, and come back to do the same. There is no concept of me time for women. No sexual freedom. No dressing freedom. There are men who are not like this. But they are not just less common, but rare. I wish my country will become less narrow minded atleast in another few decades
