So you’ve signed up for a dating site like Plenty Of Fish, thought long and hard about your profile, and selected just the right pictures to demonstrate what a great catch you are.But there’s one area that’s still stressing you out: More specifically, coming up with one of your own. If you’re just hanging out on OKCupid or Christian Mingle, then you’re one of the lucky dudes who don’t need to stress over their headline.Just as bad are those which scream of desperation, or have a rescue complex. All we did was look at some random pages of dating profiles and just pulled these typical taglines.But this is great news for OUR readers, because you are now going to stand out as a creative and clever person amongst the yawners, oddballs, and desperadoes. We had to stop ourselves, because they just went on and on.It also can work to attract someone who has similar interests with one quick zap.We perused hundreds of dating site profiles and headlines for red flags or dullsville, so you don’t have to. There are more cringe-worthy headlines than we thought possible.
There are zillions of daters out there in dating-land vying for your attention, hoping that you will recognize that they, uniquely,can fill that magical place in your heart.But if your headline is going to advertise how “unique” you are – and how strict your parameters for the perfect woman can be – then don’t expect to get many responses.“Vegan biker and techie looking for blonde, in shape, environmentally conscious gluten-free artist” isn’t exactly going to reel ‘em all in.This is just a more annoying, particular variant of The Captain Obvious.If the photos don’t cut it, we generally don’t click on the person. But if we make it past the photo, skimming profiles, the first thing you'll notice is the profile tagline.
