Today, new research published in the BMJ’s journal, Evidence Based Medicine, adds to that glittering pantheon.
Scientists from Barts, the London School of Medicine, and The University of North Texas have discovered the secret to the perfect online dating profile.
Being "one of the guys" every now and then doesn't just show that you are fun to hang out with; it also shows that you are not high maintenance, are down to earth and can have fun doing just about anything.
The researchers suggest the boring but supposedly effective, “Genuine, attractive, outgoing, professional female, good sense of humor, into keeping fit, socializing, music and travel, seeks like-minded, good-natured guy to share quality times.”In general, the research shows online daters steer gender stereotypical. Women like bravery, courage and risk-taking more than kindness and altruism. The six-page study goes on to offer a practical how-to for online daters including nuggets like: don’t just wink or send a generic message; keep the first missive short and sweet; be enthusiastic; and don’t keep an online paramour waiting. But consider, singles, while strict guidelines are sure to be a comfort for some in the online dating pool, love is not an exact science—and even stone-cold science needs its skeptics.
But that doesn't mean you don't have control over your fate. In this post, I am going to teach you a few steps to help make this happen. I hate to start this list on a shallow note, but no matter how amazing the written portion of your profile is, if the pictures are not up to par, the majority of men will never even read it.

You should have a “genuine smile” in your picture, one that crinkles up your eyes. It’s good if you can get a shot of you in the center of a group of people (because, Power), better if you’re a man to have a few women smiling adoringly at you (because, Desire), and best if you’re shown touching another person, but not being touched, because apparently the toucher is perceived to be of a higher status.
Your Headline First and foremost, be honest, but not brutal in your self-assessment.
Much of your destiny online depends on the quality of your online dating profile. It's time to stop getting passed over and start getting noticed. )." This new and improved statement provides bait for men who want to message you. Sometimes you like go out on a Friday night, but sometimes you are OK sitting in with a glass of wine and watching a movie, right?
It gave them a question to ask you, making their life incredibly easy.
