#046 Avoid clichés on your profile.

LoveStat Dating Tip #046

Although it may be true that you "work hard and play hard" and are "equally comfortable in jeans and T-shirt", as you are in "a little black dress (tux) and heels", you might want to opt for a little more originality. These same old tired lines will make you come across as boring, predictable and lazy.

When writing your profile, avoid common clichés and put some real effort into it. Be specific, honest and sincere, and paint a picture that allows the reader to get a glimpse of the real you. For example, don't just say, "I like to read". If you truly enjoy reading, consider talking about one of the recent books you've read and why it was meaningful to you. The reader will learn far more about you, and will easily gather that you "like to read".

So if you want your profile to get noticed, don't be a clone of everyone else. Be thoughtful about what you write, and set yourself apart from the crowd.
