COVIDating: Setting Up Your Online Dating Profile

Sep 22, 2020

Ever since I started sharing my dating journey I've been flooded with your questions! So I wanted to provide some tips and tricks on how to find love while we're in lockdown! Share this with your single friends or save this for when you're ready to start dating. 

Let's get started with setting up your online dating profile... 

1. Your first picture should be a good quality, SOLO picture! 

2. Use your quote cards to say something interesting about you... Something that would be a good conversation starter! (Ex. Two truths and a lie!) Make your quote cards easy to respond to, while also making it clear what you're looking for. As a ratio, two thirds of your quote cards should be about you and one third about what you're looking for.

3. Personal information is everything! This section of your profile shows people what you value and what's important to you. If you have a job, tell people what you do. If your religion is important to you, share that! 

4 Be clear about your goals. Why are you on the app? What is your end goal? Are you looking for a relationship? Are you looking for your husband? Are you looking to casually date? Make this clear ON YOUR PROFILE and post pictures accordingly. (Ex. If you're looking to have fun, post a tasteful bikini pic!)

5. Have a few photos of you and your friends! Paint a positive picture. Paint a picture about what you enjoy. (Ex. If you enjoy the "finer things in life," post a picture of you dressed up with your friends.)


Now, let's focus on swiping... 

1. When swiping, if it's not a heck yes, it's a NO!

2. Don't pay attention to the dating apps "most compatible" algorithm. 

3. Pay attention to the red flags, but also find something positive about every profile.

4. It's a numbers game. Cast a wide net with the people you feel good about, and then let go of the outcome. 


The biggest piece of advice I can give you when it comes to online dating is to GO WITH YOUR GUT. It doesn't hurt to put yourself out there. Everyone I've met in my life has been there for a reason and to teach me something. People can surprise you. Let them!



If you want to go to a restaurant, order whatever you want, and NOT leave feeling gross, bloated & guilty about what you ate… I'm here to tell you, THAT IS POSSIBLE! The answer is here.
