Before Dynamic Dating Profiles:
I am a warm, loyal and caring man. My family, relatives, loved ones and friends are my treasures. My grandparents were born in Italy–I love to cook and break bread together. You should be sincere and direct. I DO NOT LIKE hidden agendas or liars. I am told I am handsome and younger looking than my age.”
After Dynamic Dating Profiles:
My Italian born Nona lived with us most of my childhood. I had to speak Italian if I wanted something other than pasta for lunch. I was also able to sweet-talk her and avoid the wrath of her wooden spoon. I was fortunate to have her in my life; she taught me to treasure family, loved ones and friends…. My family planned lunch while we ate breakfast and dinner while we ate lunch. Cooking and breaking bread with family and friends is heavily ingrained…. Many of my friends today, I met in grade school. My new and old friendships are founded on sincerity, integrity, and laughter. I’m looking for a partner that communicates openly, with integrity and candor.”
During our phone conversation the gentleman mentioned his grandmother a few times and what it meant to grow up with her in their home. It was clear she was very special to him. I could hear his caring tone when he spoke of her. That showed that he was family oriented, warm and sensitive; no need for a list of boring adjectives. His use of capital letters was read as shouting. I was able to communicate the importance of integrity without sounding quite so harsh or shouting. There was no need to describe his physical-self in his profile since he had a good quality, recent picture.
This woman was new to online dating. During our conversation she made it clear that at this time in her life, raising her two daughters was her priority. While she was not looking for marriage, she realized she missed adult conversation and hadn’t seen a movie with a rating over “G” in 3 years. She mentioned she was very organized and not very spontaneous.
The following are excerpts from her profile. She received a tremendous response and is now dating regularly. This year she can watch the Academy Awards and recognize titles other than animation. Her profile is now among our successful online dating profiles.
I’m a single mother of 2 beautiful girls, 7 and 5. My girls are a huge part of my life and being there for them is my most important job… At this time in my life, I’m not looking for marriage or a long-term relationship, so please don’t have a Wedding Planner on speed dial. I love to cook but my baking is a disaster waiting to happen… I like to travel when time and budget allow but they are usually well thought out trips. If you’re looking for someone to take to Paris tomorrow, I’m probably not for you.”
