When it comes to online dating profiles there are a number of things that get people rushing toward the next button.
The first is not having a photo on your profile, having a profile photo improves your chances of dating success ten-fold.
Next is a lame or suggestive username, here are the 10 worst dating profile usernames I could find and yes they are real usernames but will give you an example of what sort of thing to avoid.
Then comes the profile or message headline, this is a first glimpse into your mind so says a lot about you.
Here are some examples of bad online dating profile headlines:
Whether you refer to your own anatomy, make comments about other people’s or make suggestive remarks, sexual comments are a big no-no unless you are on an adult dating site.
