You want to describe yourself and elaborate on who you’re looking to meet.
You will want to make your profile unique to who you are and it will be important to avoid cliche phrases like “I like hanging out with friends” or “I’m laid-back and easy to get along with”. You will also need to enter your profile heading in this section. I’ve never heard of anyone having success or failure strictly based on their heading. If you’re looking for help on creating your profile, see these articles: Note: It is extremely important that you upload a photo if you are serious about meeting others.
This is a little confusing for brand new users as initially it looks as if you have to pay to use the service. You can browse profiles and even wink at other users for free.
If you’re not ready to pay for the service (and you shouldn’t be considering you’ve not even seen it yet) click on the Profile link at the top of the screen.
Keep in mind: these “simple” sections are where people feel most comfortable telling little white lies. When you meet someone on a first date you don’t want their first thought to be “they lied to me”. If you are unnecessarily, it will lower your match score with other singles for no good reason.
If something is important to you then by all means, enter those preferences.
I discuss using these in the post how to use VIP emails.
