According to Statistic Brain, a site that aggregates research on a huge array of topics, there are 54,350,000 single people in the U.S., and 49,650,000 of them have used dating sites or apps.
Really. No, really.
So, why are they still single? Well, let’s start with their online dating profiles. Have you looked at any recently? (Rhetorical question. Obviously.)
Here’s an excerpt from a typical profile~
“Petite woman, 40s, loves sports, walks, and movies. Seeking kind, funny, handsome man, 40s to 50s for serious relationship….”
The rest of the profile is just as, um…generic…blah…boring. And that’s the problem: Most online dating profiles tell you little if anything about who that person really is. In fact, I’m going to guess that your online dating profile tells others almost nothing about you–even if they’re full of words, and even if your interests tend more toward moonlit virtual reality games than “sports, walks, and movies.”
Why is that? Why don’t people’s profiles say more? Why doesn’t your profile say more? Perhaps because–
- You lack clarity. Do you know what you really value? Do you have a clear vision for your future? Do you know how you want to feel in a relationship? If you said no to any or all of these questions, it’s going to be hard to articulate them in a dating profile. But doing so is the only way you’ll attract dates who are potentially right for you.
- You’re hesitant or afraid. You, the very person who might post all kinds of personal things on Facebook or Instagram, might yet be afraid of sharing who you really are on a dating site. I get it. But you can learn to write a profile that shares who you really are, and to do so in a positive, empowering way, without fear.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. You can get clear about yourself, your values, and your vision for the future. You can understand how you want to feel in a relationship, and become unafraid to share your true self–in online dating profiles, in actual real-life dates, and in a relationship. Meet to Marry™ can help you take your first step toward changing your dating and relationship reality.
