Martha Stewart Online?
Recently, I heard about a big development in the online dating scene: Martha Stewart decided to try find love online through Match.com. While many people are surprised at her move, we know that online dating can absolutely be successful. True, Martha likely has thousands of potential suitors lining up just because of her fame and fortune, but what is great is that she is really giving it a chance! Still, even though she is Martha Stewart, I feel there are some valuable points that we can take away from her profile to help you all when you are preparing your own profiles.
First, make sure your pictures aren't too serious. Martha's photos are no doubt gorgeous, but perhaps not suitable for an online dating profile. Make sure you are using quality photos with real eye contact with the camera and most importantly, big genuine smiles! You want to make sure that your shots portray how you are in everyday life: approachable, friendly, and gorgeous!
Second, make sure you include three different types of pictures: a head shot, half-shot, and full-body shot. It is absolutely imperative that you include photos from head to toe - not only will you get more interest online, but others out there want to see the whole picture.
Finally, be very specific about yourself in your profile. Don't use generic statements such as "I'm kind, friendly..." Instead, think about your experiences. Use brief 1 - 2 sentence anecdotes to capture who you are. It will definitely make you stand out and differentiate yourself!
