Today I’m very pleased to bring you a special guest blog from The Frequent Dater which is all about Online Dating Profile Examples for Men. I’m running guest spots all this month to celebrate the fact that I’m a judge for dating category for the UK Blog Awards.
Hi everyone, just before I bring you some amazing online dating profile examples for men, I just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. I’m a thirty-something, UK-based dating blogger over at The Frequent Dater and I’ve been in the dating game on and off for what seems like forever!
I hope you enjoy my post!
Amazing Online Dating Profile Examples for Men
Online dating isn’t an exact science. Women want different things in a guy and it’s difficult to please everyone all of the time. But who wants to please everyone anyway? We only really need to appeal to a small minority in order to be successful in the dating game, I mean how many women do you have the time for?!
Anyway, even though there isn’t a formula as such, there are some great online dating profile examples for men out there of just how to write your “about me”. I’m going to show you a few examples and tell you what is great about them, you should then be able to apply the same ideas to your own and become instantly more successful!
“I’m a very happy and easygoing person. I don’t take life too seriously unless I really have to. I like outdoors as well as city life. I like sailing and have a sail boat as my summer house on the Swedish west coast. Skiing etc… I also enjoy going to a pub, restaurant, comedy club, theatre, and AC/DC concert or why not opera.. The variation is what is nice.”
Perfect for dating apps that are made for people with little time on their hands, such as Tinder.
I like this one because it’s really positive and to the point. It covers the type of guy he is, shows that he’s up for fun and lists plenty of hobbies that a woman can relate to in order to find things in common.
“Born in London and travel to work in the City everyday.
Easy going, enjoy the theatre, cinema and dining out at restaurants regularly.
Love to travel and have visited more than 60 countries. Lake Como, Rome, Tokyo and Moscow are on my list of places to visit.
Enjoy keeping fit – played rugby for 20 years and try to keep in shape without being too fanatical about it!”
Perfect for the dating apps that require a short bio but you could easily add a little more to this one to include what you’re looking for in a woman that would make this suitable for most dating sites too.
The personal description is nice and concise, covers lots of really intriguing things such as places travelled and what he does to keep fit. Both of these will act as great conversation starters and attract like-minded women.
“Thanks for dropping by, a little about me…
I’d very much like to find someone to eventually form a long term relationship with, but to begin with someone to date and to have fun getting to know.
Smiling is something I do naturally, my ‘default’ state is happy and optimistic, however I am not naive and certainly won’t be taken for a fool. Finding someone equally positive would be wonderful because laughter and fun are as important as food and drink to me!
I’m someone who likes to see the best in those around me. I am trusting, loyal and emotionally stable. Friends would say that I’m humorous, gregarious and quick witted. I care about the world and its inhabitants, I treat others as I’d like to be treated myself.
My vision of a successful and lasting relationship is based partly on tradition and partly on my own experiences. As a gentleman I like to open doors, I don’t swear (publicly!), I think that it’s important to understand that a relationship is organic, it never stops growing. Romantic gestures, affection, good communication and mutual consideration keep things alive.
My interests include eating out, theatre, cinema, reading, travel, healthy eating. Sports-wise I like to run, row, cycle, box, swim, golf and a few others, fitness is important to me.
Dislikes – Rudeness, Arrogance, Intolerance, Tattoos, Excessive swearing.”
Perfect for regular dating sites such as Plenty of Fish, Match.com, etc.
This profile is really fantastic. It’s really thorough and covers just about every element you’d expect to see in a dating profile for men. I like the warm welcome followed by what he’s looking for in a woman, rather than jumping into selling himself. This is a nice honest profile and the type of women he’ll attract from this will be caring and considerate; both traits he’s looking for in a potential partner.
I’m hoping you’ve learnt something from the 3 online dating profile examples for men I have provided here. You should take the time to review what you have in your profile and see what elements you may be missing that could be hampering your chances of finding your next date!
I’d just like to say a quick thank you to James for the opportunity to write for you, his readers. I hope you enjoyed it !
