Talk About Past Relationships
Zoosk found men who had the following words on their profile’s received 52% MORE messages from women:
- My ex
Why these words work: Women apparently value men who are honest and modest.
Use these words in a positive fashion. You don’t want to come across as bitter and jaded.
Here’s how you use these words on your dating profile:
GOOD –> “It’s been over 2 years ago since my divorce and I’m here for a passionate, long-term relationship.”
BAD — > “I’m so glad I got a divorce from that hell hound I dated.”
GOOD –> “I have an amazing son and share custody of him with my ex…”
BAD –> “Please be drama free. If you’re here to play games like my ex, don’t message me!”
Talk About Your Family
Men who had the following words on their dating profiles received 7% MORE messages from women:
- Single dad
- Single mom
Why these words work: Women value family. Nothing is sexier to a woman than a man whose a good dad and has strong family values.
You may think 7% isn’t a large number but it’s better than zero. These words can give you a little boost if they’re applicable to you.
For example, when you introduce yourself you can write “I’m Chris, I’m a single dad who is…” and take it from there. Or you could use the word in a sentence like this:
“On the weekend, I enjoy coaching my son in Lacrosse. It allows me to spend more time with him, I have fun doing it, and I get to teach him valuable life lessons through the sport.”
When you write about yourself keep it positive. You don’t want to write something like this: “Raising a teenager is tough” or say anything that is negative. Women aren’t attracted to negative dating profiles.
Don’t overdo it when talking about your kids, though. A couple of sentences is all you need. You want to show women you’re a great dad but don’t want to make it appear you’re so involved with your kids you don’t have time to date.
What does it all mean? Clearly it means you should be honest about yourself.
Online dating has a stigma of men lying about themselves on their profiles. One study found 81% of people lie about something on their dating profile. So, it’s refreshing for women when men are honest about themselves.
Now that Zoosk has given you the best words to describe yourself on your dating profile, sprinkle a few on your dating profile.
If you want to know another sneaky trick regarding a word that has been PROVEN to increase response rates from women, use the word “whom” on your dating profile. The word “whom” has been found to be one of the best dating profile words a man can have on his dating profile.
