Tuesday Profile Writing Tip - Avoid Repeating What Has Already Been Said
Posted May 27 2009 10:36pm
Through the Dating Tales online dating profile writing service I see quite a few profiles from around the globe, and there is one similarity I’ve noticed among the profiles of both guys and gals, young and old.
There’s too much repetition in your online profiles!
For example, if you have an account on Match, then you have the option to answer questions in the initial questionnaire, type bits of info about you in the supplemental boxes, and then write the hefty chunk of your profile in the “About Me” section. Let’s say that one gal in particular says in the initial questioning that she exercises 3-4 times a week and that she speaks Spanish. And then again in her “About Me” section she says those exact same thing.
While it’s not ok to just repeat yourself, it is okay to elaborate on those facts with something like this:
“I’m training for the 3-Day Race for the Cure” and “I spend every summer teaching Spanish to preschoolers”.
The point is that unless you have something new to say about those facts, its best to just leave them out of the “About Me” section.
If you’re stuck and can’t think of anything else to write about, see the section about Profile Writing for ideas or sign up for the Dating Tales online dating profile writing service and I can do the writing of the “About Me” section for you. The survey only takes five minutes and the cost is only $29.
