Spring Cleaning Your Online Dating Profile

The seasons are changing and that means one thing. It’s time to dust off those winter blues and clean up. When it comes to spring cleaning, it’s not just your house that could use a little freshening up. Whether you’re in a dating lull or you’re back on the market or you just want to revitalize your profile, these simple tips will help you spring into action.

Picture Perfect

The easiest way to refresh your profile is to change up your images. While your profile is your main selling point, it’s your profile picture that reels them in. Instead of just changing your profile picture from your existing images, upload some brand new ones that showcase where you are at in your life right now. If you’re not having any luck with your existing pictures, it may be time to bin them all together and start anew.

Make Headlines

After your profile picture, your headline is the next thing that could catch someone’s eye and make them linger longer on your page. Some of us use headlines to showcase our wit and our love of pop culture; others to say exactly what we’re looking for a future mate. Regardless of our intention behind our headline, the most important thing is that it stands out. The same old boring headline could just lead to glazed over profiles while new, current and eye-catching headlines could lead to great first impressions.

Update Your Interests

Just as the seasons changes so do our interests. Your profile should reflect this. While all-weekend Netflix marathons were all the range in winter, you may want to update your profile with your current likes and interests. And it’s not just seasonal changes that you could add or remove; think about all the things that have recently spiked an interest. New interests could mean more compatible potential partners.

Free Your Mind

Spring isn’t just about cleaning up the old; it’s also about new life and beginnings. One way to breathe new life into your dating profile and your dating game is expanding your horizons. If you’ve found that your current crop of matches hasn’t been yielding the right results, perhaps it’s time to rethink some of those parameters. By changing or increasing the usual demographics could open up your chances of finding the perfect partner.
