A recent discussion on Reddit’s Seduction forum regarding attracting women using your OkCupid profile got much attention when one person claimed to be getting 110-120 visitors a week to his own personal profile, which we know is rare for a lot of men. I recently received a request to critique an online dating profile from the PlentyofFish dating site. To honor the anonymity of the guy we are critiquing, we’ll simply call him the Jman when referring to him from here on in.
Over the past week, I have been scouring through tons of Male Plenty of Fish online profiles. First off, I would just like to say that finding male profiles with more than 10 favorites was quite a difficult task. Now on to my findings, which will basically be a quantitative and qualitative analysis of about twenty different mens’ Plenty of Fish online dating profiles that indicated a high female attraction rate. The first thing that stuck out to me was that the age range of all the men were almost all between the ages of 30-35 with a couple in their late twenties and a couple over 35. One thing that I was expecting was the heights of the 20 men to be tall but this was not true. In the interest of privacy, I’m not going to link to all the profiles, but I will give you some excerpts from some of the About Me sections that I thought were good. What I like about this guy was that he really showed a lot of passion for life and compassion for women.
I am a lifetime student and I have 2 undergrad degrees, one graduate, and I’m working on my MBA now. In my free time I spend lots of time with my children (they don’t live with me, but they live very close by), play the piano and drums, exercise daily, mountain bike, ride jet skis and 4 wheelers in the summer and snowboard in the winter.
I love to travel (the Caribbean being my favorite) and while my immediate family all live here, I have family on the east coast, west coast, and in Southern France. In the future, I’ll likely expand on this study to include both a larger sample size and include more category data.
As far as helping figure out what the perfect online dating profile is, I suppose we can say that it helps if you are a 30-35 year old male, good profile pictures, athletic, looking for a long term relationship and have a well written profile, then you are golden. What if there was a way to influence potential online daters to perceive you and your Plenty of Fish profile as more attractive? Luckily there are a number of dating gurus who have been testing this concept on a number of social media and online dating websites.
A prop picture is a picture with you either doing something really interesting or in an interesting place. For example, if you’ve ever been on vacation or traveled to an interesting place, lets say Paris, then putting up a picture of you standing in front of the Eiffel tower is going to help convey desirable qualities about you.
We’ve all seen sales pages or commercials with testimonials from various people about how great a product is.
Another form of social proof which I’ve talked about in the past is the number of Favorites that is listed at the bottom of your profile. Being the curious kind of guy that I am, I decided to do a little digging today and try to get some statistics on how effective this new Serious Member Upgrade was for those participating. To start I searched through 600 male profiles and 600 females profiles for everyone with a serious membership. Now that we have an idea of the number of people participating in the Plenty of Fish premium accounts, is it possible to determine how effective these “Serious” members are in attracting more online dates? This is hard to say because the point, in my opinion, of the paid membership is simply to draw more visitors to your profile. This guy had the full 8 pictures, all pretty decent, except three of which were solely of his pick-up truck taken from different angles. Since there were 53 upgraded female profiles in my sample I’m not going to go through each one. Now lets get our hands dirty and take a look at how the Serious Members’ favorites compare with the Regular Members. As you can see in the above graphs, the men seem to do better with the paid memberships where the women don’t have much of a difference at all.
I noticed an interesting experiment on another blog the other day which utilized word clouds to examine online dating profiles. So, using this concept, I decided to conduct my own little experiment, I went on to Plenty of Fish and copy and pasted the Interests sections of 50 female profiles and converted them into word clouds using the Wordle web-site. Obviously, everyone likes music and movies, so it’s no big surprise that those are two of the biggest interests for both profiles.
What I find interesting though is that the female dating profiles tend to be more about emotions and bonding, with words like: friends, family, laughing and fun.
The next step is easy, simply wait about a week, or enough time that enough people can rate your pictures. If you rate highly on a picture (7-10) then you know you have keeper, but if you rate low on a picture (below 5) then it’s probably a good idea to get rid of it and swap it out for a new one. So, as you can see, this is a pretty powerful tool for your Plenty of Fish online dating profile.
Creating a seductive profile online is probably one of the most important aspects to Plenty of Fish dating.
This is pretty obvious and it’s still surprising that there are people who think they are capable of attracting perfect strangers online without having a simple picture of themselves. This applies mostly to the guys, however, I doubt women could get away with a topless picture on a legitimate dating site. Recently I did a little research where I browsed through 100 random male profiles and 100 random female profiles. One observation I noticed in my research from number 6 is those profiles with 6 – 8 pictures, some did good while others did extremely well.
A good example is one guy who had 8 pictures shown and was given favorite status by 130 women!!
It is difficult to find true love in the world these daysa€”and ita€™s especially hard if you are a superhero.
Where do our heroes turn to if they want to find a loving a€?sidekicka€™?a€”online dating of course!
Next Movie has humorously imagined what some of our favorite superheroesa€™ online dating profiles would be like.
From the brave and courageous Captain America to the dark and brooding Batmana€”it goes to show that even superheroes need some love in their lives as well. Good writing structure and grammar are important, but the ultimate goal is to make an impression on someone you haven't met yet. In the prior article - How to Get Your Online Profile Noticed -  we outlined secrets that will help attract potential matches to your profile. It's important to rid yourself of any previous advice, assumptions or thoughts on what "should" be in a great profile.
Most so-called dating experts give the same generic advice related to an online profile (i.e. That stuff sounds good, but it is based on a primitive understanding of attraction, social dynamics and subliminal communication.
Most people already discount what people write in their profiles because they know it is "crafted" to make the person look their best - just like they did with their own profile.


You might THINK that you need to a) describe yourself in detail, b) explain how you like to spend your time, c) what you want in a partner, d) list your favorite food, e) give your astrology sign, etc.
Most people don't read everything written anyway, so it's better to keep things brief and follow Step 3. Show your personality in HOW you write versus listing tons of details and hoping it strikes some "compatibility" with a reader. The last book I read was called One by Scott Turow which talks about his first year as a law student.
Even if you found compatibility with this person in one or two areas, you probably found incompatibilities too.
You favorite food, book and tv shows are worthless attributes to add to a profile unless you are going to utilize them in a witty, exciting manner.
Just because two people watch the same TV show or eat the same food doesn't mean they are compatible! At this point, you're probably thinking that I'm the total package compared to all the shirtless guy profiles on this site. If you noticed what word I misspelled in the sentence above, you passed step 1 and can feel free to email me.
At this stage, I fully understand that pics generate most of the initial attraction online.
I look forward to corresponding with anyone who has their act together and will appreciate a guy who does as well. The amount of replies this guy got with his profile was staggering compared to his old profile.
Let's break down each element in detail, so you can utilize similar techniques in crafting one for yourself.
This sentence also piggy-backs off the dynamic we suggested in How to Get Your Profile Noticed. By suggesting you are a 'slow-mover', it gives women a critical level of comfort needed at this early stage. This clever method of disclosing information about yourself makes other profiles look primitive. Mentioning you don't believe in astrology shows you are confident to take a position that may be different from many women.
Women want a guy with a backbone, not someone who agrees with everything they say or believe. Secondly, guys often embarrass themselves by mentioning specific TV shows that aren't flattering or sabotage attraction. Finally, the phrase - "Try anything once" -  is a great way to say you are "adventurous" without using those same words everyone puts in their profile.
Claiming to eat anything "except Sushi from a buffet" communicates you appreciate fine dining without being explicit or pompous. You specifically use the words "I'm the total package", but do it in a clever way that doesn't make you seem narcissistic or conceited.
You also sabotage every guy's profile with a shirtless pic by implying they are inferior to yours.
The most brilliant part is that it almost forces EVERYONE who reads your profile to respond.
You would not believe how many super attractive women responded by answering the question asked in the profile. In all seriousness, I'm a fun, confident, secure guy that would love to find that needle in a haystack online and prove the doubters wrong.
Saying you're "serious" and that you are a "fun, confident, secure" guy are all attributes that every woman can appreciate and feel good about responding to.
The verbiage - "needle in a haystack"-  subconsciously tells the reader that you are very selective and worthy of the rarest find.
Everyone knows the stigma of online dating, so "proving the doubters wrong" is a concept that most online daters can relate to --- otherwise they wouldn't be on the site. Acknowledging that pics dictate most attraction online may seem shallow, but everyone knows this deep down.
You aren't going to stress out whether the person responds or not, which are signs of a confident secure person. Our advanced material stresses the importance of being "outcome independent" in your mind, but here's a great way to communicate it to others in your profile.
Nobody wants an insecure person that stresses over anyone who doesn't like them or respond. It's also not a bad idea to have pics from your past mixed in with current pics to give more insight about you.
An uninspired, boring profile generates no attraction and puts even more pressure on your pics to ignite chemistry. First impressions count so dedicate the appropriate time necessary to create the RIGHT profile. Make sure it creatively reflects attractive qualities about yourself in a fun to read and memorable manner . Your effort will be rewarded 10 fold when the sparks start flying and your email box is filling up with people anxious to correspond with YOU!

About Alex FurmanskyAs the company’s visionary, Alex lives, breathes, and (much to the demise of this personal life) sleeps Sparkology. My about us page was quite simple and wasn’t much attractive, so i was looking for some cool design and here i got many. Sparkology is an elite, exclusive dating experience serving young professionals in the cosmopolitan dating scene. The infographic outlines many great tips for creating or editing one’s Zoosk profile, or any online dating profile for that matter. Fortunately this gentleman was willing to share an example of his OkCupid profile tips and notes with it.
I would put everything I’m doing on hold if someone I know needed help with anything at all.


My humor is along the lines of Simpsons, Reno 911, Chevy Chase, Naked Gun, Seinfeld, stuff like that. Social proof is essentially a phenomenon that occurs when the consensus of others has an influence on the thoughts of a person. Let’s take a look at some of these concepts and see how they can be applied to your Plenty of Fish dating profile.
The point to using prop pictures in your online dating profile is to help convey higher value or status. Now this might be a problem for some people because they don’t know anyone who would write a testimony for them. Favorites are essentially like a bookmark for people who find your profile attractive or interesting.
This new feature basically included nothing more than having your profile search results appear in a different color along with having a star badge next to your profile.
There is nothing that a shade of yellow and a star next to your picture is going to make you any more or less attractive.
However, from my general observations there wasn’t much of a pattern, the profiles were similar to the men where some were really bad, some were average and some were really good.
Not until we can get some better metrics on something like the Click-through rates of Serious vs. For those that don’t know, a word cloud is a graphical representation of the frequency amount of each word used in a given text.
I repeated the same process again using 50 male profiles and converted those into their own word cloud. Even listing a bunch quirky fun things that barely anyone else would add to their online profile would help to spark curiosity and attention. This one tool, used properly, can help you maximize the attractiveness of your profile pictures. This one tool can help you create a profile that will vastly improve your chances of attracting more potential online dates. Using this one technique you can easily maximize the attractiveness of your overall profile. Within the profile though, the pictures section is by far one of the most important and often most neglected feature. The reason is that people want to actually see a good close up of you, rather than a group shot or some stick figure standing in the distance. I don’t think this one is that big of a deal if you are really short on quality pictures.
The people who take their own picture with a cellphone while standing in front of the bathroom mirror. This is intentional and will subliminally focus even more attention on what you are about to say. The company is revolutionizing an industry fraught with low standards and dirty business practices by respecting members' busy lives and upholding their high dating standards. This is social proof at work, as the laughter is the proof that is influencing a person’s decision on whether the show is funny or not. It’s almost like a positive vote for your profile and the higher the number your Favorites is, then the more it is likely to act as social proof. For example, a word that is used 10 times in a body of text will appear much larger than a word that is only used once or twice. If you aren’t interested in the group that rated you low and are interested in the group that rated you high, then it is still beneficial to keep that picture even though your average overall rating is somewhere in the middle. Even if you think you’re ugly, having a good close up picture is good, because it shows you are honest. However, if you are serious about raking in the hotties on Plenty of Fish then why not just get some better pictures – don’t you own a digital camera?
Conversely, the pictures that had 6 shots of the same thing only fared as well as profiles with 1 or 2 pictures.
As predicted, the site of the moment is beginning it’s slow torturous decent into obscurity as the usefulness of the site and the media attention wanes.
My 11 year old is soooo smart that we are able to have intellectual conversations (or does that mean I have the intellect of an 11 year old?). For instance, when someone scrolls down the page and sees that you have a huge number of favorites than they will be more likely to take a closer look at the profile.
It seems like quite a big difference but keep in mind that it is only 1% and 9% respectively of the total sample size. This guy is anything but serious and is obviously wasting his $5.99 per month on this sorry excuse for a profile. Perhaps the Serious Member badge is helping him out, or perhaps there is more to this pickup truck thing than I thought.
Also, for comparison purposes, I took an old set of data from my Profile Picture experiment, and found the same thing. Amongst all my research and surveys with women who date online, I have yet to find one that thinks this is a good idea.
Another thought is to simply leave the other person in the picture as means of social proof.
Also, it must be noted that there were quite a few females on the message boards awhile back that indicated they were getting their profiles upgraded automatically (free of charge).
Regardless of looks or written content, on average, the profiles with more pictures (6-8) had more favorites given to them. He had pictures of him doing the following: skydiving, riding a motorcycle, snowboarding, surfing, sitting by the fire in a camp setting, playing with his dogs, and one simple but clear head shot as his main picture. He barely had anything written in his profile either, but he didn’t need to, he displayed his exciting life through visual proof!! Tinder is a weekend project for a decent programmer and like Chatroulette, the clones are a-coming. If you’re worried about privacy for the other person then simply put a black bar across their eyes. So, we can conclude that the more pictures you show, the more interest you will receive in your online dating profile.
When I’m with someone special I like being spontaneous, adventurous, romantic, surprising them with little gestures, sensual, playful, and basically having that type of fun you see two people who just met in the movies having!
I’m looking for someone who has similar qualities and desires someone who they can connect with . I feel there has to be mutual physical attraction for there to be good chemistry between two people. Having some similar interests helps–some things I enjoy are fine dining, walking at the beach at night, going dancing, watching movies including foreign films, travelling, going snowboarding, going on day trips to local attractions, having romantic nights at home, cuddling, and basically having a blast together.
