We met March 24, 2011 and we got engaged Sept. 24, 2011. We’re getting married Nov. 24, 2012. Our relationship has moved fast, but finding love online isn’t what we intended. We were just looking at who was out there and things just sparked immediately. I love and trust my fiancé more than anyone. We have been through some very trying times in our lives from deaths in his family to losing my job. We stand strong together. Thank you again Zoosk!
Congratulations, Catherine! Sounds like you both found an amazing connection on Zoosk!
There are three stages of love: ‘Soon to be in love’ is first. ‘Recently out of love’ is the last. The only name for the one in the middle is “Double-Rainbow-Awesome, Yeah”. We’d like to help you from the first to the second. But it’s crucial to put your best foot forward.
This is the first of three posts about giving your profile a clean-up job. In this post we’re going to focus purely on content: what you want to say in your profile to help other Zooskers get to know you.
You want to say just enough to sound interesting, enticing and maybe a little sexy, but not so much as to commit the dreaded profile foul of ‘the overshare’! TMI (too much information) can kill a budding relationship like too much sunshine can wilt a young flower.
There are some things you want to say on your profile: you’re fun-loving and love good food. You have eclectic taste in people, decor and clothing and above all you believe in the freedom to express or do whatever you feel needs doing.
Some things are a bit too much: we all have been on a date where the other party talks about their ex, or how much they don’t drink any more, or their sex life. Seriously: some things don’t need to be brought up in the “getting to know you” stage. Nothing stops the “Double-Rainbow-Awesome, Yeah” phase faster than a guilt trip for all members of the opposite sex, or verbal abuse lumped on an unseen third party or a creepy amount of self-sharing. You don’t have to be unnaturally cheerful, but positivity never hurts!
Tell a good story. Describe the perfect date you’ve always imagined. How does your perfect match fit with you? Try not to make “campaign promises”. You’re not trying to “win” here, you’re trying to woo.
There’s a major difference.
In the next post we’ll cover how you say it. And then, third, how to take the best profile pictures! But don’t wait, share YOUR tips for creating the ultimate profile in our comments section!
Huw has been a blogger for over 15 years, a writer since high school and a geek forever. His idea of a perfect date is a tour of Alcatraz and the Barbary Coast Trail powered by dim sum.
Everything felt hopeless for a while but then I discovered your site where I met my beloved Camilla. Thanks Zoosk, I’m so happy that you exist
Congratulations, Andreas and Camilla! We’re happy you exist too!
What do women Zooskers think about the Big Game?
The biggest football game of the year is quickly approaching and we here at Zoosk wanted to find out what the ladies think about the game, the players and how football affects their dating life. Last week, we polled more than 1,000 female Zooskers and we think you’ll find the results a bit surprising…
“We met on Zoosk. We were talking for awhile and we had our first date on August 18, 2011. We both live in Las Vegas and find it hard to meet good people out here. He is the love of my life and we were made for each other. My whole family adores him and I know he will be the man I marry. “
Congratulations, Donovan and Lynessa, sounds like you’ve both hit the jackpot on Zoosk! We love your story.
“I met Rob over 7 months ago on Zoosk, we quickly fell in love and now are living together! Thank you, Zoosk!”
You’re very welcome, Rob and Dianna! We wish you all the best!
“A week after I set up my profile on Zoosk I came across my now boyfriend’s profile and sent him a wink and we start talking from there. On our first date it was apparent we were soul mates even the lady at the table next to us commented on what a great couple we made and took our picture. After we talked about our lives we discovered we had been in close proximity most of our lives including living right across the street at one point but never met or saw one another. Thanks Zoosk for making it possible!”
Congrats to Zoosk couple Suzanne & Sam from Cambridge, Ontario!
“Hi, I met the man of my dreams here on Zoosk within the first day of signing up. We had both signed up on the same day. We chatted for a while and decided to meet the next day for a coffee. We enjoyed each others company for about three hours. We both found each other very interesting and we have fallen in love. I’m looking forward to a long future with Sam. Thank you, Suzanne.” –Suzanne & Sam from Cambridge, Ontario
“Thanks to Zoosk I met the love of my life. We met on Zoosk last July and now we’re happily living together. Through Zoosk we were able to already see we had a lot in common, but after the first date it was obvious we were both done looking. We both have never been this happy before and we thank you Zoosk for bringing us together.” –Rebecca from Wasilla, Alaska
