Dating Tips


Writing about yourself can be perplexing and time-consuming, but it doesn't need to be.

Try these online dating profile tips to make sure that your wonderful personlity shines though and attracts that match that you want, the best dating match for you 

Your online dating photo

Try and step into the shoes of people who will be viewing your profile

  • A high-quality photo /photos of yourself really will increase your chances of success

  • A photo of you sming works even better and please do not include other people in your photo as members looking at your profile may find it difficult to decide who you are…. So just a good quality photo of you and only you smiling and the age that you are rather than one taken a while ago as you are great and people will appreciate seeing the honest, real you & if this could be a head-shot image, even better

  • We know that some of you love your pets dearly and whilst undeniably cute, people wish to see you more than your cute puppy, so if you have to include pets in your photos, let them be secondary to your smiling, engaging self 

  • Have a neutral background as backgrounds with interesting backgrounds, however sublime and delightful, sunsets, beaches etc. generally tend to distract from the real star – you and please don’t hide your beautiful eyes with sunglasses, it’s important for a member to connect with you and to be able to see your eyes will help entice that person to want to find out more about you


About you- your online smile4 dates dating profile, your description 


Agreed, this one does take some effort, but you will be rewarded.


Dating members want to feel that you would like to make a good impression from the outset and  are more likely to show  their appreciation by contacting members who talk about themselves, where they live, what their interests are than members who write in their profile ‘ ask me and I will tell you’.

Long stories or detail won’t engage as well as a few points that you really think would interest people e.g. if you enjoy the theatre, perhaps talk about the last play you saw and what you liked. Try not to talk too much about what you dislike as a positive image will really help you find your perfect match with

If you like to ‘have fun’ give some detail about what that fun is, in an engaging way perhaps for example;

'my idea of bliss on a Sunday afternoon is to take a walk along the river with my iPod playing the latest Audio book by Stephen Fry before stopping for brunch at a local cafe'

Members will then know that you enjoy books by a certain type of author, are perhaps up to date with technology and enjoy walking, all hints to your great personality.
