I am flattered by the amazing introduction Nahar used to unleash me and Adam I mean introduce us to you. 🙂

I figured this is an Arabic dating site so I decided my first post will be about how to write an attractive profile header.

Today, more and more women are going online because they are finding it harder to meet high quality singles in real life due to lack of time, tradition or one of many several factors that hold us back. But many women I know are complaining about meeting only losers online.

My answer it is not you, it is your profile. Women usually make a few common mistakes that attract the wrong type of men.

Mistakes women make:

#1: You Don’t promote yourself

You might be reluctant to promote yourself because you do not want to come across as arrogant or cocky.  But by leaving your strengths, you are selling yourself short. If you speak 3 languages, travelled to 25 countries then you should list it. Chances are someone with similar passions and background will respond.

Get a close friend to help you create your profile. She’ll highlight your strengths from an outsider point of view.

#2: Copy and Paste

Writing another profile that starts with I am “nice, smart, fun, and sweet girl” = BORING, as it will sound like the other 10,000 profiles out there saying the same thing! 

The best profiles have an original story to tell. Men love stories because they are kids on the inside, so write an interesting story that will appeal to men. Stories such as hiking in the amazons with friends or a simple trip with girlfriends to a local music concert. This way you’ll come off as passionate, which is a major turn-on for most men.

#3: Boring porfile

While a coherent and properly spelled online profile is appreciated, you shouldn’t write an academic (boring) description of you. Instead, you should use humour! I think if you can make someone laugh or someone makes you laugh, you’re on the path to a good relationship. So use a few good jokes in your profile. However, be careful to only use harmless, innocent jokes. You do not want to come across as crude or dorky.

#4: No Photos

The best way to get noticed online, is to include a photo. Choose a clear photo that shows in your best light and preferably smiling. Get a friend who know to take photos to take a nice photo. 

#5: No expectations

What are your expectations from joining Araboosh? Tell people the kind of relationship you are looking for (marriage, friendship, .. etc) This way only those with similar expecations will contact you. 

Just have fun and be yourself!!

à la prochaine fois

    Excellent first post. Only question is why have you designated women only?? I imagine men can benefit from same advice 🙂

    I think the reason she said for women only is because only women actually put effort and thoughts into writing their profile 😉
