Plus, we’ve got a few First Date examples that get her even more excited to meet you in person.

Before we get to the meat and potatoes, let’s start with a quick primer…

Treat Your Profile Like A Marketing Campaign

Let’s face it; online dating is all about selling yourself. To get her to bite, you need to show why you’re the best man on the market. You want to highlight your most desirable traits and pique her interest.

Most women want the alpha male, so use your profile to show off that side of your personality. (Not sure how to own the alpha persona? Read this.)

Pro Tip: Inject some alpha into your profile with this quick writing exercise.Alpha male traits are instantly attractive, but you can’t just list them in your profile.

POF profile tip

Lists of adjectives are boring, and researchers have found showing how you embody a specific trait is more attractive than just telling her you have it.

Choose a few qualities from this list of attraction triggers, then jot down a real life example or story that shows you possess that quality:

    • Adventurous
    • Protective
    • Financially stable
    • Social
    • Ambitious
    • Dominant
  • Loyal

Weave those examples into your profile and boom – your profile is instantly more attractive to women.

With that out of the way, it’s time to follow this proven profile writing formula and watch your response rate soar:

Part 1: Grab her attention from the very first line

If your profile starts with, “Hey there! My names Matt and I’m from Southern California,” then it’s time for a rewrite. There are literally millions of guys on POF, and you’re not standing out from the crowd. If your profile doesn’t grab her attention immediately, odds are she’s going to move on.

Instead, describe a trip you took, tell her a funny anecdote, or jump right into a story. That way she’s engaged from the beginning and way more likely to keep reading.

Part 2: Describe what you do for a living in a sexy way

“I’m in construction.” Zzzzzzzz, you and half the other guys on POF. Don’t just tell her what you do, make it sound magical. Make it sound like something she will want to hear more about.

Part 3: Describe your hobbies/what you do for fun

Again, avoid outwardly stating your hobbies. Boring lists are the fastest way to send a girl running to the next profile.

Instead of writing that you like to travel, play soccer, and snorkel, tell her what you like about those things.

Remember – your online profile is all about painting a picture. You want her to be able to imagine what your life is like and, more importantly, how she would fit into that life. So make sure it’s a good looking picture:

Part 4: Describe what you are looking for

Here’s where you talk about what you want in a girl. Aim for this part to be around 1/3rd of your About Me section. Research revealed that the most attractive bios are 70% about you, 30% about what you are looking for in a partner.

Here’s what an attention grabbing, attractive POF profile looks like in all its glory:

But what if adventurous travel isn’t your thing? Don’t worry – a more “down to earth” style profile can be just as sexy. As long as you hit all her attraction triggers (interesting hobbies, decent job, active social life – basic boyfriend material stuff) you’re golden.

Pro Tip: Mind Your Grammar!

Just like your mother always said, grammar really does matter. Of the 2,000 singles POF surveyed, the majority said that bad grammar was worse than bad sex. A whopping 58% of singles said they “couldn’t live with subpar grammar.”

So if you don’t know when to use “there” as opposed to “their,” or the difference between “it’s” and “its”, it’s worth the investing the 5 seconds it takes to Google it.  PS – This goes for your messages too.

First Date Examples for POF

The First Date idea is another chance to stand out from the other guys on POF. Most of them take it seriously, and say something boring like “meet for coffee” or “grab dinner”.

Why be so serious, when being intriguing, creative and even humorous is so much more interesting? Give her an amazing fantasy instead, an adventure that makes her happy to imagine being with you.

Go over the top, but make it completely obvious that you’re not actually being serious:

This section gives you a chance to showcase your sense of humor and intrigue her with your creative side, so don’t miss the opportunity to rise above your competition.
