Presenting Yourself to the Online Community

Your presentation must be divided in two parts: profile and pictures

1. Profile

Your profile is your presentation card to potential partners. Spend a little time brainstorming. Make a list of what you want in a partner and what you have to offer that person.

  • Be truthful. Lying may get you lots of attention at first, but as soon as you meet someone and the truth comes out, you're history. The matchmaking feature of the site you use will not be able to find you a compatible partner unless you are honest.

  • Be interesting. As you write out the profile, be descriptive - tell a story instead of listing just the facts. Use of humor can also be helpful. Show some personality..

  • Be positive. Focus on your best. We all have our faults and everyone knows it; therefore, stick with the good stuff. Try not to sound like your bragging or think you're perfect.

What's most important to you in life: family, career, fun, health, personal development, learning, religion, and/or political activism? The answer to this question says a lot about you. Listing what is most important to you will help attract a similar minded person.

What are you looking for in a Latin partner? If you're looking for casual sex, don't say that you're looking for a life-long loving relationship with someone with whom you will produce seven beautiful children. If you won't date anyone who's not Christian, then say so in your profile.

The dating site you ultimately select may use an "opening line." This and your photo would be what someone first sees before clicking into your full profile. Grab their attention. You want people to click the link instead of passing over you and selecting the next guy or gal. Try using a favorite line from a musician or author.

Keep in mind that you can change your profile and opening line. If you're not pleased with the results your getting, take a look at what you're advertising. Think about the type of partner you're trying to attract, and target your profile to that person.

Have a friend review your profile - one of the same gender you are trying to attract would be best. Do they find you attractive? Do they see any red flags?

A great profile will increase your chances of meeting someone who will be interested in you. Think about it. Your profile is your first impression. Think of it as the first words out of your mouth when you meet someone. How many times have each of us met someone in person and later asked ourselves "why did I say that?" Well, here's your chance to plan ahead - take advantage!

2. Pictures

Posting a picture is an obligation. When people look at your profile, the first thing that catches their eye is your photo. Take the time and effort this important part of your profile deserves because a bad photo may cause people to ignore the rest of your profile.

The good news is that this is also one of the quickest and easiest things to change if you don't like the results you're getting. Keep this in mind. If you aren't getting the results you want, change your photo first.

Get yourself several pictures to choose from. Try to use a digital camera. Watch the quality. You must be the center of the photo, not a thing or other person. Take the pictures with natural light, try not to use the flash and avoid direct sun. Never use pictures that have shadows in your face. You must appear natural. Glamour or sexy shots are not the best choice - people will see them for what they are and wonder what you "really" look like. Ask the opinion of people of the gender your looking for. Remember to smile. And don't forget that you can change the photo when you want.

Again, a good photo is crucial to your online dating success. If you make the first move and email someone who you think would be a good match for you, what do you think is the first thing they will want to see? Your photo! If it's not there, they may not even reply to your message.
