There are many ways to get a dating profile wrong, and far fewer ways to do it right.

But when you do get it right, you stand out. And when you stand out, you can potentially get more matches who are interested in the things you’re interested in. At least, that’s the hope.

Of course, it’s not always easy to strike profile gold. You may see profiles you like regularly, but sometimes it’s hard to tell what makes them pop.

Today, we’re going to show you some good dating profiles to copy or at least help you make an inspired profile for yourself.

Here are seven good online dating profiles to copy and make your own:

The Genuine Profile

Hi, I’m new here, but here goes nothing. I’m looking for late night heart-to-hearts, authentic people, and the occasional glass of red wine. I prefer to take things slow, but if it feels right it feels right 🙂

I work as a nurse at Sedar-Sinai hospital, so I’ll be able to take care of you as long as you don’t get jealous that I have a four-day weekend every week.

The key to my heart is honesty, open communication, and loyalty. If you’re interested in getting to know me, tell me about the last thing that warmed your heart.

The Trail Guide Profile

I was born in a national park (yep.) and you get bonus points if you can guess which one! Things that I love: hiking, squirrels, trail mix, camping under the stars, sand between my toes, bears (they’re basically big squirrels).

This last year I went to 12 different national parks in my van. Here’s to another 12. If you’re looking for your Carmen San Diego, you found her. Pick two: beach, mountain, forest, desert, or dessert. If you guess my combo, I’ll take you out. If you guess wrong, you have to take me out 😉

The World Traveler Profile

Just got back from the Czech Republic and I’m already raring for the next trip abroad. My passport is stamped almost front to back with little space to spare, so if you’ve got a suggestion on what should fill the remainder shoot me a message!

Best Travel Memory: Riding camels across the desert in Jordan.

Worst Travel Memory: Camel chewing off a clump of my hair in Jordan. Guess they hadn’t seen grass in a while.

I’m seeking someone to hug and hold hands with in front of famous European landmarks for Instagram (3+ years of experience required). Please respond with relevant job materials to be considered.

The Hobbyist Profile

I love to make things! I play music, paint, dance, and, yes, I know how to work a pottery wheel, so reenacting the Patrick Swayze “Ghost” Scene is not totally off the table (if you’ve earned it).

I spend my weekdays working at a nonprofit tutoring kiddies. Any other moment I have is spent frolicking in high ceiling museums and indulging the aforementioned conceits.

Hit me up for concerts, coffee dates, or your favorite pho spot, but be prepared to talk about your life outside of work and partying puh-lease. Toodles <3

The Extravert Profile

So, the things you need to know about me are: I like to have fun, I talk a lot, and I have a big, big, big laugh, so if you’re self-conscious about people looking at us in the bar…well, just don’t be.

The ideal first date is for drinks, exchanging some personal fun facts, then dancing (please tell me you dance, doesn’t have to be good, just confident). Disclaimer: I have a lot of friends, and they’re not going anywhere. BUT you’re more than welcome to join the group. We don’t bite!

I’m pretty much down for anything, as long as it keeps a smile on my face, which isn’t a tall order. If you’re there, it shouldn’t be a problem 😉

The Athlete Profile

Tennis, running, hiking, weights, swimming, soccer, you name it. I’ve been wearing cleats, so long they’re actually just part of my feet now. Sorry if you live in a shoes off household [shrug emoji].

I’m active and you should be, too! Sports are fun, and I’m looking for a teammate to share in the fun in the long-term, so I need someone who can keep up. If you’re into it, you know what to do. And don’t worry I don’t take gym selfies…usually.

The Joker Profile

Hi, I would like one [job], please. I would be an asset to [your company]  because I am skilled at [skills] and have much leadership experience at [working.]

Voted five times potato peeler of the moment, at my last gig. If you’re looking for somebody who will take initiative and make fries when life gives them plain ol’ taters, I’m your guy. Email for further inquiries: starchkingmarv@hotmail.com

Oh wait, this isn’t LinkedIn? [potato emoji]

Writing profiles are hard, of course, so sometimes it’s good to start with a formula. If you had to include three basic elements, write a short paragraph about you, one about who you’re looking for, and one about your ideal date. Good smiling photos and the occasional joke also help. Once you got that down, you should be good to go. Good luck!
