It can often be difficult enough to get women to respond to you on dating sites even if you send them what you think is the perfect first message. While you may think that these women are just ignoring you, it’s a high possibility that they are actually visiting your profile and deciding not to respond after reading what you have on it. There are classic mistakes you can make on your profile to make a woman decide not to return your message. The biggest mistake you can make is having a profile that bores her, so there are a few tips you should keep in mind when you want to make sure you catch her attention.
Don’t Skimp Out On Certain Sections
The quickest way to make a woman turn away from your profile is by not having certain sections filled out. No matter how stupid or worthless you might think a section is, women are not going to message a guy back if their page is half empty. Try to write something down for each section just so you can have something there. A woman who scrolls quickly down a page that has nearly no text on it is not going to bother reading what is there, much less message you back, so you need to make sure to have a good amount of text on your page. It doesn’t really have to be good text. You just need to write down some concise information about yourself so she can look it over if she wants.
Keep the Proper Tone
You should try not to brag too much about yourself on your profile, or at least not in a way that is obvious. If a woman reads a profile that seems like it’s coming off as extremely narcissistic, she probably will not want to message you back at all. On the other hand, if you play down your accomplishments too much or seem aggressive or shy you are unlikely to receive a message back. The key is to find a good balance between playing up your accomplishments and acting humble or modest without seeming like a doormat. The best way to do this is by keeping a casual tone to your profile so that you don’t seem like you are trying too hard.
Don’t Just List Things
If a woman looks at your profile and sees a lot of lists instead of paragraphs of text, she probably won’t waste time with messaging you. Listing your favorite bands or TV shows is fine, but you should really try to give some explanation as to why you like what you like. Adding a personal touch by explaining your hobbies instead of just a bare bones list will make a woman more likely to want to message you. It shows effort and interest alike, so she will likely think you’re showing more initiative than other guys who put very little effort into their profiles.
