Are messages piling up in your inbox? If the answer is no, then read our tips on how to get your dating profile noticed on our site. Remember, there are thousands of profiles on modjes.com and yours is up against a lot of competition. It literally only takes mere seconds for someone to decide whether or not to contact you. Not only will a good dating profile attract other members to you, but it will also prompt others to message you first. The two most important components of your profile are your profile (main) photo and your text in the About Me section.
Your Profile Photo
— This is your main picture. It’s the front door to your dating profile. Make sure that it is a recent and real photo of YOURSELF that shows your face. Choose it wisely!
— If posting a full-length photo, make sure it is portrait size and shows something interesting like you engaging in your favorite indoor or outdoor hobbies. What you’re doing in the photos can influence how you’re perceived. It can be a conversation starter too.
— Smile! There’s no such thing as an ugly smile. A smiling photo will make you look relaxed and approachable.
THINGS TO AVOID
— Sexually explicit photos and photos of children, objects, and animals by themselves. Big NO NO on our site. Just, no!
— Group photo. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with pictures showing your sociable or familial side, but these are not ideal for a profile photo. No matter how attractive you are, you’re not going to get noticed. Who wants to engage in a guessing game? People are just not going to bother. Just don’t do it.
— Laying in bed or sofa or taking selfies in the bathroom will never ever look attractive to anyone who is seriously looking for a relationship. Why? Who wants to be with someone who seems lazy, not motivated, and classless? Please don’t do it.
— Photos with another person cut out of it. Cutouts are like so ridiculous.
— Fake photos. Why even bother? What’s the point? It’s not you!
YOUR DATING PROFILE
Your dating profile must be interesting enough for other members to want to read it. Make sure you make the ABOUT ME section of your profile honest, interesting and brief.
— Keep it positive. Nobody wants to read about a bad childhood, phobias or horrible past dates. Negativity is not sexy. Keep your profile positive to attract the attention of more members.
— Keep it short and specific. Try not to over-relate and generalize. For example, if you enjoy cooking and entertaining, tell them about the type of food you make for your guests. Describe a favorite entertaining moment you’ve had in the past. How did your guests behave? Did they enjoy the food? Did y’all play a board game or dance to music? Make sure to end your story with a memorable final line too.
— Keep it fun. Don’t be afraid to express your funny side. The vast majority are attracted to individuals who have a sense of humor.
— Keep it interesting. Write about how your family, friends, career and social activities have shaped your life.
YOUR DATING SEARCH
Be Proactive. Don’t wait for someone to contact you. Send an email, private chat message, Skype invite, wink or virtual gift to say hello and get noticed. Consider joining our group chat rooms to get more visibility. The more members you meet, the sooner you get to accomplish that all-important goal of finding your potential life partner.
KEEP UPDATING YOUR PROFILE
You may think that once you’ve created your profile, you’re finished. Wrong. It’s a good idea to keep updating it. Why? If you’ve been on our site longer than you’ve expected that could only mean one thing. Your profile is not attracting enough attention from other members. If that is the case, we highly suggest that you change your profile photo as often as you can, and make your About Me narrative more interesting. To update your profile, simply click on the EDIT PROFILE icon in the Members page of our site.
