Also, please remember for the multi-select options that selecting all items is the same as selecting no items.

So many people had written, ‘I don’t know what to say’ or ‘I’m really new at this’ and it got a bit repetitive going through people’s dating profiles which all had the same summary.

I realised that what you need to do when writing your profile is to stand out from the crowd, and so the worst thing you could do is to start your site profile like a hundred other people do!

When I was seeking inspiration from other people on match, one dating profile really caught my eye.

I started by filling in my dating profile, and actually found it quite hard to know what to say.

I had never written a ‘personal ad’ so to speak before, apart from in my CV, and I didn’t think that details about my work experience would be enough to attract the man of my dreams on an a dating website!
