Looking forward to going to Brazil in the fall. If you have any tips on what I should see, definitely let me know.
Thereís no getting around itóTinder is massive and massively popular. And because itís so huge and has grown so quickly, thereís sort of a, everything goes, Wild West of online dating type of feel to the people and profiles you see on the app.
On Tinder, you can get away with using one obscure movie quote, a funny one-liner, or a complete joke in your profile as long as your photos are good. People are moving through profiles so quickly that writing a paragraph about yourself and your hopes and dreams definitely isnít required, and may even come off as a little weird.

Dating Profile Examples for Bumble
What Works: Short and detailed, but take it seriously.
What Doesnít: Snarky comments or joke profiles.
Three dating profile examples from the dating app Bumble.
If I could play one sport professionally, it would be soccer because I feel like itís the least harmful. (Football is terrifying.) Which sport would you play? Which sport do you play?
My favorite movies are The Godfather, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Toy Story, and When Harry Met Sally. I hope that wide range of movies allows you to see that there is more to me than meets the eye.
John 30+ I havenít dated much in recent years because Iíve been so focused on my career. Now Iím ready to meet the person who will pull my head out of the books and bring me a bit of happiness.
Similar to Tinder, when youíre on Bumble itís important to make it short and sweet This isnít like old school dating sites where you wrote longer descriptions about yourself and where you are in your life. Instead, you want to create a snapshot of who you are, and give enough information that makes people want to learn more.
However, unlike Tinder, Bumbleís womenís first approach to dating means that the site attracts daters who are slightly more serious and put themselves out there in a different way. If you only have one silly comment in your profile, it might not help you out as much as writing a little more about who you are, or focusing on one hobby youíre into.

Dating Profile Examples on OkCupid
What Works: Long profiles full of clever or candid remarks.
What Doesnít: Short profile or leaving things blank.
Three dating profile examples from the OkCupid app.
My patronus is
A black and white cat. I was hoping for something noble like a lion or stag. Heck, a llama, even. Nope. I got a housecat. If you take the Pottermore quiz and get a dog or a mouse or something like that, feel free to message me. J.K. Rowling is trying to tell us something.
You should message me if
Youíre looking for something serious. Iíve done the short-term dating thing and no knock on it, but itís not for me. Iím looking for a genuine connection with someone that thinks itís okay to (occasionally) eat dinner after midnight. Open to dinner suggestions~
My family. I know it sounds corny, but Iím not ashamed to say it. Family comes first. Blood is thicker than water and all that. Weíve been through a lot together and in those hard moments our strength together is what gets us through. No doubt about it.
Back in the day, OkCupid was the dating app where people really tried to show off in their profile. Youíd write long profiles full of jokes and language designed to show off how smart you were. (It was kind of part of the fun.) And, though a lot has changed about the app these days, there are a few aspects of its earlier self that still hold true.
On OkCupid you need to write a lot. And the more the better. People on the app, enjoy reading profiles and learning more about each other. Also, OkCupid takes keywords and information from your bio, and uses it to match you with other people so writing a longer profile can help you out a lot.
Unlike the past, you donít have to show off quite so much, but itís definitely recommended that you fill out every part of your profile with at least something. And if youíre the type that likes to go off about your favorite books, your obsession with the way the human brain works, or your experience canvassing for Planned Parenthood last summer, then go for it. This is the app where long profiles reign supreme.

Dating Profile Examples on Hinge
What Works: Fragmented answers that are unique and/or go with your photos.
What Doesnít Work: Not putting enough information in or being super vague.
Three dating profile examples from the dating app Hinge.
You should leave a comment if
You like cheese and would like to discuss it further.
The dorkiest thing about me
I legitimately like romantic comedies. I grew up with three sisters and too man females and aunts. I was outnumbered. Plus, they have great dialogue and plot structure.
My most irrational fear
Dolphins. Canít trust íem. Never have. Never will.
Unlike Tinder or Bumble, and similar to OkCupid though a bit more random, the relationship-minded dating app Hinge uses different prompts to help you fill out your profile. Because of this, itís a little bit easier to come up with what to say, but youíll have to work a little bit harder to stand out since lots of people will be answering the same question.
So whether youíre answering what youíre overly competitive about, explaining what the dorkiest thing about yourself, or saying what the worst idea youíve ever had is; be as creative and unique as possible. And if you want some bonus points, try to make your photos match your answers so they tell a story together.
Dating Profile Examples on Zoosk
What Works: A short (or long) paragraph with details about who you are.
What Doesnít Work: Random statements or asking people to message you to learn more.
Three dating profile examples from the dating app Zoosk.
Zoosk is one of those dating apps that is part old-school, part new-school. (Full disclosure: The Date Mix is owned and operated by Zoosk.) Since itís been around for a long time, a lot of people like to write long profiles that go into their life, hobbies, etc. Likewise, itís pretty normal to talk about your divorce or your kids, whereas on other apps it might be better to leave that for later.
But you can also scroll through profiles quickly, so a lot of people donít stop to read peopleís full profiles until after they match. As a result, you shouldnít write something random or something thatís only one sentence long. But profiles that are a short three to four sentences or more do pretty well.

Dating Profile Examples on Match
What Works: A few sentences that reveal something unique or essential about you.
What Doesnít Work: Something generic or not putting anything at all.
Three dating profile examples from the Match dating app.
Iíve been teaching 7th grade homeroom for the past three years and I absolutely love my job and my students. Itís hard work, but I bring a lot of energy to what I do and always have some leftover to get into trouble on the weekends at my fav. local bar. (If you play your cards right, maybe we can meet there.)
Iím A fun-loving guy whoís a happy dog-dad to my pup Tito. My friends would probably describe me as goofy but somehow I always end up being the responsible one. I do a lot on the weekend. I like to work on cars, BBQ with my friends, catch a local band (that Iíve probably never heard of but by my second beer I wonít really care as long as they bring it). If you donít mind the dog or a little bit of a goof we could be a pretty good pair.
I grew up int eh area and just couldnít leave what has come to be my favorite place in the world. (My 14-year-old self would have never believed this.) I try to balance family, work, and time for myself and enjoy all three. Iím hoping to meet someone looking for something a bit more serious. Lately my hobbies include weightlifting and tinkering with music (no, I will not call myself a DJ). If you want to know more, just ask.
Match is another one of those dating sites and apps that has been around forever, so theyíre somewhere stuck between the old and the new when it comes to the types of profiles people like to see. One good thing is that there are a lot of different aspects to Matchís dating profile so thereís not as much pressure to write a great summary. People do still read it however, so make sure you put in something worthwhile.
Like Zoosk, you can go long or short (itís normal to see super long or just one-sentence profiles on Match) but make sure you donít go too general or generic in your profile. Because thereís so much information on your profile already, the summary should be something people donít know about you yet that really stands out so it doesnít get lost in the shuffle.
Writing a dating profile is never easy. Youíre trying to be creative and unique, while also describing yourself and who you are. The truth is, most of us think of ourselves as normal, everyday people; but there are things about us that make us unique. So dig down deep, and try to find those hidden nuggets that make you who you are. And the weirder the better!
Do you love chocolate chip cookies without the chocolate chips? Thatís crazy but put it in. Have you never been skiing but always wanted to try because you love the mountains? Great detail, add that too. Have you always wanted to go on the Price Is Right because youíd love to bet $2 and really screw over the person who said $1. Thatís a little evil but itís an amazing detail.
Even if you donít always feel that way, youíre an interesting person. With a little work, your profile will be interesting too.
