Common sense might make you think that posting an overdone trendy photo will lead to an immediate negative opinion from potential matches.
It’s like tax season for accountants — only I work on romantic relationships rather than relationships with the IRS (for good reason). The dream of summer is a distant twinkle in your eye.
This holds especially true for men — if you’re average, or even below-average on average, you’re more likely to receive messages from women.
And even if attractive people get more messages, it doesn’t mean that they’re fastest to find an offline connection.
If you’re boldly going forth with your profile on your own, allow me, the professional ghostwriter, to impart some tried-and-true techniques. (Hint: The one-liners discussed above often have a place in these profiles too — and the photo advice stands as well.) On dates Go into each with an open mind, but know when it’s time to get out.
On apps that don’t require much writing Don’t try to summarize yourself in something the length of a tweet or two. Use something that you’re actually interested in and turn it into a tweet length, one-liner, or quick story — think upbeat or even funny. Don’t have expectations, put your phone away, and don’t hype dates to the point of nervousness.
