- Get Real: Remember, when writing a dating profile – sarcasm and innuendo don’t always translate. What you may consider to be clever and pithy may come across as caustic or corny.
- Update and improve your profile every month. Posting the same online dating profile for more than two months is a dead end. Update and change it up a bit.
