How to Describe Yourself with the Help of Online Dating Examples for Men.
Are you going to sign up for a dating app or website with nice Russian brides or Ukrainian ladies and want to attract a lot of attention? If you sometimes struggle with a lot of competition in life, brace yourself because it’s even worse on the Internet.
But there are ways to make it work. Like a good recipe, a successful dating profile is all about a combination of ingredients working in your favor: a good set of photos, a compelling bio, good timing, a strong, engaging opening line, etc.
It’s the first impression that counts, and this rule apply as much in real life as in online dating. Therefore, it is essential to take the time to set up your profile and remember these guidelines:
Telling the truth brings good luck. If you’re a decent person with no malicious intent, there is no reason to lie. Authenticity goes with trust, which is a foundation for any kind of relationship. With the semi-anonymity we have on the Internet, we can feel more comfortable in expressing our honest thoughts. Don’t hold back because the worst thing that can happen is that you won’t match with somebody.
- James, 38
My life has been revolving around my job lately so I’m a bit out of touch with the dating game. But now is the right time for me to meet a woman with whom I can forget about the rest of the world.

Will you be my date for boring family and school reunions? You can pretend we have our lives figured out together.

- William, 45
I’ve been a college professor for 10 years, and recently my students got worried that I haven’t found anybody yet. Online dating isn’t something I’m familiar with, but I’ll try my best to make those kids happy.
- David, 22
I’m not sure what life has for me, but I’m looking for a girl to make fun memories with and to capture the best time of our lives.
Talk About Your Family
Families can be difficult whatever your age is. If you feel that it’s appropriate to share the relationship about your family, you’ll provide the person on the other end with a lot of information. Especially if you are looking for a long-term partner, having a close relationship with your family will make you look more trustworthy.
- Paul, 35
I maintain a close connection to all my five siblings. Despite living in different states, we talk almost daily and try to meet up once a year for Thanksgiving.
- Mark, 37
I used to be an only child growing up, but now I have a bunch of half-siblings, and I’d love you to meet them one day.
- Martin, 50
My sister and I became business partners more than a decade ago, and although at the time everybody disapproved of it, we’ve never regretted it.
- George, 29
All I ever wanted in life was to gain my father’s respect. Now that I’ve done that, I think I have to find another dream to pursue.
- Steven, 41
Family means everything to me: the one I was born into, and the one I will hopefully have one day. I want my future children to experience what I had.
If you want to be more approachable, this will be a great way to have an easy conversation starter. Both you and your match won’t have to come up with a quirky pick-up line; that opening question will already get the chat started. Even a simple or straightforward question will be a good fit.
- Edward, 44
My top three dream destinations are India, Japan, and Morocco. Would you like to go there? And what’s on your list?
- Brian, 31
If I could master one sport professionally, it would be surfing. After all, how hard can riding on waves be? You spend most of your time sitting on the board anyway. What would you choose?
- Joseph, 39
If I was allowed to only watch one movie for the rest of my life, it’d be “Good Will Hunting”. What would you choose in that situation?
- Ronald, 25
I’m really into brit rock and can name all of the members of bands with plural names: Editors, The Smiths, Small Faces, The Cribs, and The Kinks. What’s your weird talent?
- Anthony, 35
I’m fluent in English, French, and German (I studied them as a part of my degree). Are you good with languages? Which would you want to learn and why?
A witty and smart dating profile description is an amazing idea. Most women like smart men and find them attractive. In writing, jokes can be more complicated than in everyday conversation, but if you spend some time on it, you will be rewarded by many messages. Adding just a few funny one-liners and puns will maximize your results. However, having too many jokes can do the opposite. It can make a woman think that you are immature.
- Kevin, 34
Remote locations like Madagascar and the Andaman Islands have always spoken to me. But usually, it’s in Malagasy and Hindi so I don’t understand a word they’re saying.
- Jason, 29
To the women over 30: I’m a lawyer looking to start a family. To women under 30: I’m jacked and breed Labradors.
- Timothy, 40
I’m a comedian. That’s it. I’m the joke.
- Jerry, 39
Jerry 2.0 Edition Updates: minor bug fixed, improved selection algorithm, new pictures, and multilingual support.
Share Your Interests
You don’t have to pour your soul out with serious stuff to complete strangers online. If you want to keep it casual and light at first, share your all-time favorite things or what you’ve been enjoying recently. A study proved that men that can share their interests with potential dates seem more interesting for ladies online than those that claim they will tell all about themselves in a conversation.
- Richard, 27
I can talk for hours and hours about fantasy books and alternative worlds. And yes, I realize I’m not a child anymore.
- Charles, 45
I spend a lot of time listening to Kermode and Mayo Film Review podcast and reading Psychology Today. If you think these are pretentious hobbies, feel free to make fun of me, and I’ll join you.
- Joseph, 40
I have been to Beck concerts four times, and I’d like to discuss each of those experiences with the right person.
- Thomas, 34
As a young adult, I used to skateboard almost every day. Now, I watch guys skate at the park when I walk my dog. Is that what being an adult means?
- Daniel, 32
I can cook a mean steak, but I actually think I should’ve pursued cooking as a career. Maybe in another life.
Be careful not to give too many details. This makes reading your profile seem like a chore and also removes part of the mystery. It's similar to receiving an unwrapped gift. Save some information for the date itself and don’t feel obliged to reveal all kinds of personal details about yourself.
