The only real problem that comes up with online dating is the glut of choices. You find yourself able to access hundreds of women with the click of the button, while at the same time those women can access thousands of men. You’re able to approach more women than ever before but you also have to work harder in order to stand out. If you really want to make an impression then you’re going to have to put in the effort to make your profile unique. Here’s how.
Find out the Site Culture and Go Against the Grain
This can be a little tricky, because you still want to fit in with the crowd enough to get dates. Look around the site and decide what most people seem to want. Is it mostly a dating site? Be upfront about how badly you just want to hookup, then. Offer a great time to a woman who also feels the need to blow off some steam with some sexual release. Find out what most guys on the site say and then say something a little bit different from them.
Have a Date Idea at the Bottom
One great way to stand out from the other profiles is to actually include a date idea in yours. Maybe there’s a great late night hot pot place near you that’s best after 2 am. Describe your dream hookup, and end with running down the block to this late night restaurant with your hookup and refueling for round two… or three. Make this sound fun and exciting, a quirky little thing that they’re going to have to go to you to be able to get. This shouldn’t be the kind of date that just anyone could give them. Try to make it unique.
Make Sure Your Profile Pic Is Only You
You might love your cat a lot, but she’s not actually going to help you get dates. Your profile picture shouldn’t include your best friend, a group gathering at work, or anything of that nature no matter how good you look in it. You can cut out everyone else if you look fantastic, but you should be the only thing in your profile picture. You want her to look at you, you, and only you. Anything else is weakening the connection that she has with your image. You want her focused.
Cut out All the Sweet Stuff

One way to pep up your profile is to cut out the sap. Guys think that women want to hear about how sensitive they are. This is true if they want to date you, but if you’re looking for a hookup (or she is) you want to cut out the sweet stuff. This is about having fun not falling in love. Focus on having adventures, telling jokes, and in general having a blast. It will be a much better time for you than loading up your profile with sweetness and thoughts about what you’d do if you could be with someone special. Forget that. Talk about being with someone tonight.
