Assuming he’s physically attracted to you (since it all starts there), what would compel this sought-after man to choose YOU out of the hundreds of other women who also think he’s a catch? Someone would call up, complaining about a lost password and I would help her rewrite her profile.
Soon, it became my “thing.” I wrote a book called, “I Can’t Believe I’m Buying This Book – A Commonsense Guide to Successful Internet Dating,” in 2003 and simultaneously launched my first business, e-Cyrano online dating profile writing.
My theory was this: I was a writer who paid 0 to a highly skilled resume writer just to get me a job at JDate.
Imagine the millions of people dating online with no way to distinguish themselves online except through lists of adjectives, hobbies and cliches.

I am honest and straightforward, but I’m not an open book.Here are the self-summaries of some men who have messaged me through Okcupid lately: Guy 1: I don’t enjoy talking about myself but I’d say I am open minded, ambitious, and get along with almost everyone.I am not into clubbing scene so it is difficult to meet people hence the reason to have a profile here. I try to live a healthy lifestyle by exercising 3 – 4 times a week.I’d be happy to tell you more, send me a message and we’ll take it from there.Guy number 1 starts out by saying he doesn’t enjoy talking about himself, which immediately makes me think he would be uncomfortable on a first date.What makes any female dating profile great is the fact that it stands out from the rest of the profiles on any given online dating site. It’s not generic, neutral and overly politically correct.
