Original dating headlines

The not-so-much, crowd likes eye candy well enough too, but oddly responds initially to something clever and witty.

“Hey, come look at me instead of the million other choices” should come to mind right about now.

We are going to gear this advice toward men seeking women, simply because one gender is pretty much visual and the other not so much.

Its that word “headline” that gives the only clue to the importance you should give this last task.

It sets you apart from everyone else and on some sites is even the very first thing to come up inside any search result.

However if that headline sets the bar too high, you are going to miss some responses and there is nothing unique about your wealth, its only a bit rare.

“Vegan Cross Fit Bike Enthusiast Looking for Environmentally Conscious, In Shape, Gluten-Free….” This might be just a more annoying version of Mr. Knowing you can scare them away with this “obvious” level of expected excellence somewhere else inside your profile.

Now not every site still uses this area for some catchy headline to hopefully stop women in their tracks just long enough to give your dating profile a view.

In fact if you are working through this arduous task toward the best online dating profile on sites like OKCupid, Christian Mingle or Date Hook Up, the stress is pretty much over and the only thing left to do is take a deep breath and hit the launch button.

The most important story on the front page above the fold may have a larger headline if the story is unusually important.

The New York Times's 21 July 1969 front page stated, for example, that "MEN WALK ON MOON", with the four words in gigantic size spread from the left to right edges of the page. Now, have a look, [pointing at dark clouds gathering in the sky over the ocean] what do you see? In the United States, headline contests are sponsored by the American Copy Editors Society, the National Federation of Press Women, and many state press associations.

We are going to assume you are not a complete bore, so you want something a touch more witty than “hello,” but how do you emulate an entire persona into a single sentence? Again, for those who skipped down or missed it the first time.
