The lesson here is to put the good things about you at the forefront. Disclosing your interests makes for effortless conversations and paints a clearer picture of the type of person you are. According to a study from Ok Cupid and Match.com, it’s best if some of the interests below are included because it’s what the popular online dating kids do.For men, some activities they should include are surfing, hiking, and live music.Focus on the less superficial stuff, not how tall or suave or sexy you want your prospect to be.

This feature can cause some serious embarrassment if you aren’t careful (see the section “Checking how your tagline gets displayed” for the scoop). For example, say that you started your essay like 50 percent of all postings: “I’m youthful, spirited, happy, healthy . The first purpose of a tagline is to quickly say something about yourself that invites a person to look further. But what if you’re not a skydiver and not even interested in being one? A funny line can be a great icebreaker, and you don’t have to be particularly funny to write funny.
The second purpose is to create some point of further discussion — an icebreaker that provides a prospect with an easy topic to start a conversation. Try these starter ideas: • “I’m boycotting shampoo!!! ” • “Everything I need to know I got from watching Gilligan’s Island.“ • “I run with scissors.” • “Where are my sunglasses?
If you’re still completely at a loss for what to say, borrow some famous words.
Got any quotes, song lyrics, or movie lines you love?For example, here’s an a tagline that makes you want to read on: Skydiving is the coolest experience on (or off) this planet. Oh here they are.” • “In time, we all become that which we most hate.That explains how I became a plate of liver and onions.” • “I used to think I was indecisive, but now I’m not too sure.” Remember the game “Telephone” from when you were a kid?(The entire tagline is visible when your prospect opens your photo and full profile.) Spark.com, for example, uses this system to create a tagline from your essay.Table 1 gives some examples of good taglines gone bad (no, it’s not the name of a new TV reality show) when various dating sites didn’t display the entire tagline in search results.You whispered something to the person next to you, and at the end of the chain, you compared what you started with to what the last person heard. You may notice a bit of Telephone in how your tagline gets posted.
