Your personality counts-make it shout!
Most of us find it difficult to shout about our good points for fear of sounding like we love ourselves too much, but it is only through showing off our personalities that we meet people similar to us.
Trying to squeeze all your numerous best bits into a short online chat profile can be tough, so it really is important that you make the few words advertising you as a great person really count.
By following a few simple basic rules, you can make your personality shines through and attract plenty of likeminded people to chat with.
It is essential that the tone of the advertisement is positive. Nobody is drawn towards someone who looks and sounds negative so you should also avoid it when using words. For example, if you like horses and hate dogs, stick to talking about the horses to keep your profile fun and uplifting.
Another good idea is to be specific about your interests, as this will increase the likelihood that you will have things in common with your chat partners. Saying you like music will appeal to everyone, from punk rockers to classical violinists, so say what kind to really click with someone.
But, avoid coming across as too narrow-minded. Chatting online is a great way to meet different kinds of people with different kind of interests, and you don't want to limit yourself to a small pool of people-variety is the spice of life after all!
And the number one basic rule when writing a profile? Avoid lying. Be confident in your personality and interests, and show them off. If you do meet someone you enjoy chatting to you could spoil it by having to maintain the lie, or by being found out!
