HOW TO MAKE YOUR ONLINE DATING PROFILE STAND OUT WITH HUMOR

Is there anyone still out there who has never used a dating app? I’m speaking especially to today’s modern digital natives. I am pretty sure having been on at least one dating app is today's dating rite of passage…. Bumble, Tinder, the list goes on. And I’m pretty sure you have if you are reading this article :) (If not, read our FAQ below first)

I too have been on these apps. I just recently restarted my online dating after quite a long period of dormancy. Installed Badoo and dusted my dormant Tinder profile. It's been a while. I put on my latest killer profile picture -wink- and scrolled to have a quick check on my profile.

It’s a tough gig out there on the dating apps, and as a dating coach, I get a lot of questions about how to help clients improve their online dating profiles; at least a quarter of my time is spent as an online dating coach! What’s the best advice I can give if you are navigating those seas looking to catch a fish? Use humor!

There used to be a section in several common apps–looking at you Tinder and Bumble!—where you would list the “Pros and Cons of dating me.” Recent updates have seen a few changes to this section, but before you think about writing something blazé and ordinary in the new boring “bio” section, let me stop you right there. Funny “Pros and Cons of dating me” work!

They get people’s interest piqued. They get the chemistry going. So let me dive right in and give you some top dating coach tips on how to make your online dating profile STAND OUT in a big way with humor and some funny pros and cons.

1.  AIM FOR A FUNNY ONLINE DATING PROFILE

Do you know what's sexy when it comes to dating? There is nothing more attractive than dating someone who makes you laugh. A quick wit goes a long way in increasing your luck on these sites.

Seriously–what is more awesome than dating a guy who knows how to make you double up in laughter? So goes for women too. A little humor goes a long way.

Now with all that said, how should you spin your pros and cons to make you a little humorous?

EXAMPLE PROS AND CONS:

  • Pro: Can fall asleep anywhere

  • Con: Will fall asleep anywhere

Okay this is a little weird. First of all, sleeping is not really a con. The fact that you will sleep anywhere is even more weird. (But no one takes this literally. It's just funny. I’m sure you get the point now.)

EXAMPLE PROS AND CONS:

  • Pro: I have a decent credit score

  • Con: I’m always broke

2. DON'T WORRY! NOT ALL CONS TURN PEOPLE OFF!

As someone who has been an online dater for quite some time, I have one good secret that will help you in the long run.

Be 100% authentic. Authenticity goes a long way later on in case something serious comes of your online dating.

This brings me on to my point: Not all cons turn people off. So don't spend countless hours brainstorming what to write.

My aim here, in my duty as an online dating profile coach, is to make you write authentically. So yes, spill the beans a little bit. Try some honesty, but at the same time tread the line carefully so as not to say something outrageous.

Saying that you are a serial cheater on your profile of course won't help you at all. Try something light. For instance:

EXAMPLE PROS AND CONS:

Pro: I fall in love hard.

Con: I rarely fall in love.

EXAMPLE PROS AND CONS:

Pro: I’m kind and genuine in relationships

Con: Been hurt before, so I have zero tolerance for heartbreakers

That tone should weed out jokers... hopefully.  

3. A SURPRISE BUT THEN.... WHAT?

EXAMPLE PROS AND CONS:

Pro: I am a linguist and speak several languages

Con: You will never understand me when I get angry

(Me reading your profile): He speaks several languages but no one can understand him. Hmmm... It's funny but he must be interesting

The pro here is interesting and informative. Not to add a little braggy. (Don't worry a little show off on your profile is okay)

The fact that you can speak multiple languages shows that you are intelligent. And who doesn't want to date someone intelligent? Anyone?

How about the con. You can speak multiple languages but no one will understand you when you are angry. You must be speaking in tongues then, right? Funny!

4. NARROW DOWN YOUR OPTIONS BUT ADD SOME IRONY

Looking for love in all the online places....

EXAMPLE PROS AND CONS:

Pro: I have a soft spot in my heart for girls called Maggie

Con: Not all girls are called Maggie

To be fair to you, I think it would be unusual if you fell for every girl on the site.

We all want to have options but at some point, we have to narrow down our options and select one.

But wait, you just selected all women called Maggie. They could be multiple, right? What if 20 of your matches were all with Maggie’s? Will you fall for all of them?

Of course, the point here is that no one will take everything here literally. A little wit will go a long way in convincing her that you are the guy that she should invite for a date.

To expound on this in all seriousness, if you ever go on a date then make sure that you've upped your game. As an online dating profile coach I'd advise you to sharpen your talking skills to make yourself interesting.

Dates, especially first dates are all about meeting with strangers. Everyone can be funny online. The real test comes from meeting someone in person.

5. YOU HAVE TALENT BUT WAIT... NOT REALLY?

EXAMPLE PROS AND CONS:

Pro: I am really good at playing guitar

Con: I just started playing 3 weeks ago.

(Me reading your pro) Hmmmm that sounds pretty romantic. I think I'd like a guy who played guitar. Maybe he will even write a song about me… I think I'll swipe right.

(Me after reading your con) He is good at playing guitar but he's only played for 3 weeks. lol. Funny!

Showcasing your talents is  another way to use humor in your pros and cons list. Not to mention that you are conveying your passion here as well.

A pro/con duo like this will help you attract people with similar interests and hobbies. And with few exceptions I am sure that is all what we look for while we are dating: People that we click with!

6.  YOU'RE AWESOME

EXAMPLE PROS AND CONS:

Pro: I'm awesome

Con: Not all people can handle my awesomeness.

What is most striking from this pro and con is your confidence. Not all people can handle super-duper awesome people like you.

Sure, some might feel that this borders on being braggy but not everyone is negative.

If girls or boys on Tinder and Badoo are not feeling your awesomeness, then they are free to swipe left and move on to the next.

As a dating coach my advice is to  have a presence on as many dating sites as you can. This will maximize your lucky charm, increasing your possibility of landing yourself a good match.

However, remember to note down the difference between the apps. Bumble is more female friendly. Women get to text first. Tinder and Badoo are free for all. Anyone can text after a match. Go with whatever suits you.

How you are doing is often shaped by who you are doing

7. YOU HAVE MANY TALENTS BUT NOT ALL…

EXAMPLE PROS AND CONS:

Pro: I am super good at chess

Con: I suck at crossword puzzles

We are not all talented in all areas of our lives. We wish we were though. As a dating coach, this comes out as authentic. Nothing screams inauthentic as someone who claims that they are good in almost every aspect of their lives.

You will also show that you are a person who loves challenges and has some positive anecdotes to tell.

(Not to mention that I also have a secret for those that can play chess. I suck at it. I’m good at coaching, but when it comes to chess, it's a completely different story.)

8. MAYBE THERE SHOULD BE NO CON AFTER ALL!

EXAMPLE PROS AND CONS:

Pros:I can cook better than you

         I speak 4 languages

        I’m super good at binging on old movie series

Con: I am really bad at coming up with cons

After all, who said that you should put a con. Isn't being bad at coming up with cons a con in itself… lol.

As an online dating profile coach, my rule of thumb when it comes to dating apps is that strutting your stuff is encouraged. Those who scroll through your profile don't know anything about you. They don't know that you are worth a damn.

You have to show them that you are worthwhile getting to know. So go ahead and list everything you think of that makes you shine compared to competition. Having been on these sites myself I can tell you firsthand that there is a lot of competition.

A generic profile and lackluster wording of your pros and cons will only take you so far!

CONS OF DATING SOMEONE

Relationship cons are all around us

At the start of our relationships, we are all optimistic. If it's young love, our hearts throb at their very sight. When you get older you still have strong initial feelings for your partner but you are mature in how you approach them. After all, who wades  into a relationship thinking about all the negative aspects of their partner? No one, right? 

For those who have settled into their relationships and have been with each other for a while, some small unpleasant character traits of your partner will start to surface. For those who met on dating sites, I'm sure that none of them were indicated on their pros and cons sections right? lol

WE ARE NOT ALL PERFECT

That is human nature. It's also human nature to tend to hide our imperfections.

Being surprised after getting to know someone can be one of the cons. It might turn out that the guy that you now know is unrecognizable from the charming online persona that you fell for.

Just as each person is different, every con is different. Maybe your partner turns out to be loyal, kind and caring. But deep down you wanted someone who has all those attributes but is also ambitious. How you view your partner’s cons is subjective and depends on your preferences.

Maybe they are smart, kind, ambitious and talented but they just can't commit. As a dating coach, my two cents of advice are that it's your call to weigh up their pros and cons and decide if your dating relationship is worth the hustle.

PROS AND CONS OF DATING ME FOR REDDIT

Redditor talks about his funny pros and cons in his online dating profile

All right, let's wade into the quirky world of redditors and find out what they have to say about this topic. This is the online chat box where everything is raw and unfiltered. I occasionally venture into this sometimes informative, sometimes combative, sometimes toxic space to have a raw view of every opinion there is out there. 

That being said, here are a few suggestions from redditors on this subject matter.

REDDIT USER 1

Pros: Second time around lasts longerish

Cons: Sex doesn't last very long for the first time

Okay I think we should pardon your grammar but I think we get the point

REDDIT USER 2

Pros: I'm genuine when I fall in love

Cons: I am very insecure.

           I get jealous easily.

           I don't like spontaneous plans

Okay this is a little bit weird. From a dating coach's perspective, the pro is good. However, regarding the cons, put that on your profile if you never want to match with anyone!

REDDIT USER 3:

Pros: I love animals

Cons: I might steal your pets

Okay, funny. I'm sure we all get your point

REDDIT USER 4: 

Pros: I'm super cuddly

Cons: I lack personal space while sleeping

Hmmmm.... Maybe I should add this to my profile...

FUNNY PERSONALITY PROS AND CONS

Wait, is there a con of having a funny personality? As I said, everything has its pros and cons. So, what are the pros of having a funny personality? Here, the pros are plentiful.

Humor is sexy. Everyone wants someone that will make them laugh. Life can be challenging and sometimes even boring. Having someone around you who can lighten you once in a while is incredibly attractive.

Having humor is also a sign of intelligence. Several statistics show that intelligent people have a high sense of humor. So, chances are that funny girl or guy that makes you laugh is intelligent. I'm sure that is one trait that you would like your partner to have.

HOW ABOUT THE CONS?

Sometimes being too funny means that you might create a trivial impression of yourself  in people's minds and they might not take you seriously. Don't worry, it's not all on you though. Not everyone will be unable to distinguish between jokes and serious stuff.

SO, IN A NUTSHELL!

If you have stuck with me so far, then you surely deserve some parting words from me. As a dating coach I strive to help folks up their dating game to have high chances in matching with someone that's right for them.

The aim of this article was to help you sharpen your dating profile and make it interesting and appealing. You won’t have to wait so long to get matches. Go ahead, dust up your profile, rewrite it and make it more interesting!

FAQS

WAIT A MINUTE, I AM ONE OF THE 1% WHO HAS NEVER USED A DATING APP! TELL ME HOW TO GET STARTED PLEASE!

LET ME WELCOME YOU TO TINDER

No, I’m not being discriminatory here. I know that there are many other good dating apps out there. Bumble is fine (a top quality app that gives priority to women). As a woman, doesn’t it feel great when you are not bombarded with messages from guys you don’t have a thing for? 

Bumble and Tinder are good but so are Badoo, okCupid and others. I will use Tinder just for illustration purposes. So, first…

DOWNLOAD THE APP AND REGISTER

https://www.lifecoachhub.com/files/images/Tinder-registration-coachJPEG

Tinder registration screen I coach my clients when getting them to make their online dating profiles stand out

I intend to use this part to guide that rare reader who is not familiar with dating apps. 

Download the Tinder app. Right afterwards, you will be prompted to register with either your Google, Facebook or Email account.

HERE COMES YOUR PROFILE…

Then comes setting up your profile. Hmmm… The most interesting section. This is your digital face. You have to get this right. Do a half-baked job in setting up this part and you’ll always wonder why you rarely get matches.

Fill in your basic details. Your name, your contact details, your email and mobile number, you know the usual drill… Then click set up your profile picture. For people that don’t know you, they will make instant judgements of you by just glancing at your picture. 

Make sure that you put your killer picture here. Put a dimly lit, odd looking and unappealing photo and we’ll all be swiping left.

Then scroll down and you’ll find the new bio sections. This is where you can put your funny pros and cons, the topic of this article.
