The “It Ain’t Easy Bein’ Sleazy” Headline Please don’t include the phrase “DTF” (or any of its variants) anywhere in your online dating profile.(Yes, we’ve seen it, we just wish we hadn’t.)Your headline isn’t the place to advertise that you’re only in the market for a friend with benefits. If you’re not looking for something serious, that’s fine.You may well be “Ready to Try One Last Time” (ouch) “Looking for someone to love me” (yikes) or “Back on here… You may hate being single, but your online dating profile is not the place to advertise how depressed you are over this state of affairs.A better place to do that is on Facebook 😉The Die-Hard Romantic Headline You may think that women will be swayed by your romanticism.Not even if you think it’s the funniest of all funny jokes.
It’s the same on POF: Now we’re not going to make any snarky comment about these headlines (but seriously, they’re awful, don’t use them).
But if you’re one of the millions of guys trying their luck on a dating site or app that requires a headline, then read on. Your dating headline is one of the first things on your profile that sets you apart from the crowd of posers, six-pack-selfy-takers, nimrods, and lowlifes.
In fact, on some websites, it’s one of the first things a woman sees in her search results.
So if you’re interested in optimizing your profile and beating out the competition right off the bat, a catchy dating headline is absolutely essential to piquing a woman’s interest and getting her to click on your profile instead of the other guy’s.
On POF and Millionaire Match, headlines are almost impossible to miss in her search results, so yours needs to make a good first impression.But you’ll get better results if you keep the vibe on the up-and-up.
