Dating in the digital world may be convenient and easy, but a lot of people get it wrong, said Kristi Price, a professional matchmaker and dating coach with Conshohocken-based KP Matchmaking, writes Jennifer Joyce for the Fox 29 Philadelphia.
“A lot of people think they know how to present themselves online but they really don’t,” said Price.
The most important thing in creating an online dating profile is choosing the right picture, as it can make or break a first impression.
For men, Price said, the picture should highlight your personality. And while it can be a good idea to include a full-body shot, a shirtless selfie is the wrong approach to finding the right partner.
“It’s portraying that you just want to hook up and you’re not serious about netting somebody,“ said Price.
Just as important is the text within the profile. Price advises being more specific, as transparency is the key to online dating success.
She also stressed not to get hung up on rejection.
“The main thing when you’re online dating is to try not to take it personally and be patient and have fun with it,” said Price.
