Girls, what do you like/dislike about a guys online dating profile? I'm going to get back into online dating, but I don't know how to write a good profile that will appeal to women and encourage them to reply to messages I send.
Online dating is such a tricky game, lol.

Talk realistically about yourself. Don't say you like camping and the outdoors if you've only been camping once in your life. Don't call yourself a nice guy; everyone is a nice guy. Tell them what they can truthfully expect from you.
For example (I'll do mine):
I'm essentially Dory from Finding Nemo. Friendly, naive, trusting, optimistic, and very forgetful. I smile constantly and I giggle far too much. I enjoy horseback riding although I haven't done it in years because it's expensive. I have strong faith and am waiting until marriage for sex. I tend to show my affection for someone by being playfully mean to them. I love to cuddle but only in private. I have a soft spot for hopeless romantic guys, especially if they can make me laugh.
Whatever you do, don't put "Message me and find out" in your About Me section. It's wildly annoying. I don't know about other girls, but I'll only message a guy if I see we have things in common. I don't know that if you don't put it on your profile!
Also, when it comes to first messages, put something other than "hi how are you." Write something personal. It doesn't have to be super charming or creative, but tell her why you decided to message her. We like to think that you don't just copy and paste the same message to every girl you see with a nice picture. Even something as simple as "I love Finding Nemo" or "I'm also not a fan of PDA" would get a response from me.2
