It is here again that humor plays an important role in enlivening a dating profile and making it unique.

Use witty phrases and verbal images to describe your physical attributes or mention some quirky aspect of your personality that will make you come off as endearing instead of nerdy.

Likewise you can even dig into your past to inject more humor in your dating profile.

Even worse are lines that people use to describe their own supposed sense of humor like ‘being witty is second nature to me’ or that ‘I like making others laugh’.

If you do have a sense of humor then make it apparent in the content or writing style of your profile instead of being pretentious and claiming that you are blessed with one.

However this is not to say that you shouldn’t highlight your assets but do it in a witty and sophisticated way; for example if you have a successful career you could hint at it by saying ‘Coffee, Chocolate, and Men - some things are just better rich’.

Stay away from clichés If you wish your dating profile to grab attention, then you will have to use words and phrases that have not yet been done to death.

Lines like ‘I am compassionate’ or ‘I am a fun-loving person who likes to have a good time’ are not only tedious to encounter over and over again but are in fact quite meaningless since these qualities are best revealed in action and scarcely believed when they are put forth as a bunch of adjectives that anyone can write about themselves.

So try to be as original as you can in finding ways to describe yourself.

And if you want to use humor, stay away from jokes and one-liners that have become all too common.

Use specific details The more generic your dating profile, the less likely it is to attract attention.

With the internet emerging as a powerful tool for meeting people from across the world, more and more singles are now taking recourse to online dating.
