Being able to write a great InterracialPeopleMeet profile is critical to your success with interracial dating sites. You need to be able to present the best view of yourself if you wan to guarantee finding people who want to meet you. Writing about yourself sounds like an easy task, but it often isn’t.
Striking the right tone between telling people how great you are and remaining humble enough to not sound like a jerk in your profile is tough. You also need to strike the right balance between talking about yourself and describing what you are looking for in an interracial dating partner.
It’s also not nearly as easy to stay away from dating clichés, like “long walks on the beach in your profile.” It may be true that you like long walks on the beach, but I bet there is a lot more that’s interesting and unique about you. Write about these interesting, unique facets of your personality instead.
Everyone thinks they’re funny. You will find thousands of profiles with bad jokes. Most type-A personalities think they’re relaxed and everyone is adventurous in their own minds. Take some time to consider what is unique about yourself and put that in your profile, you’ll be surprised how this authenticity draws the right people to you. Other clichés to avoid include: friendly, romantic, affectionate and ‘a glass half full person.’
Writing a Great InterracialPeopleMeet Profile
Many areas of the InterracialPeopleMeet profile limit you to 1250 characters, which is between 200 and 250 words. Make these words count! Your job is to make yourself stand out and be memorable, so take time with your profile and revise it until it is as good as it can be.
You don’t need to cram everything about yourself into these 1250 words, either. You’ll be able to share much more about yourself than you can in your profile as you get to know your interracial dating partner through emails, phone calls and actual dates.
Begin by thinking about the five or so words that best describe you. Next, decide on the two or three things that are most important to you. You can’t list everything, so choose the things you are passionate about. For each word that describes you, you are going to write a story that is a couple sentences long.
Be as specific as possible in your profile, so instead of saying you are adventurous, talk about the time you ate live octopus in South Korea. Instead of saying you are romantic, talk about how you enjoy planning surprise weekend getaways to a cozy Bed and Breakfast.
Don’t write a long list of requirements for your potential interracial dating partners, either. Sure, you may have some non-negotiable traits, but keep that list to a minimum and don’t list anything like height or hair color that you can determine from a person’s bio.
You don’t want to your profile to make you look like you are too superficial and picky and this will drive people away from your profile. You could also be screening out someone who would be great for you, just because they fall an inch below your desired height range.
Get some advice when writing your InterracialPeopleMeet profile
Once you have written your profile, read through it and edit it until it sounds great. Now consider: would you date the person in this profile? If not, keep working. If you’re having trouble with one of the adjectives you chose, try to remember the best example of how you were that way with an ex. If you can’t remember anything, ask a friend to remind you.
Once you’re done writing have a friend or two take a look at it. An profile has four categories you can choose from: Woman seeking Men, Woman seeking Women, Man seeking Women and Man seeking Men. You want to have people of the gender you are trying to attract read through your profile and let you know if it sounds like you and if it would attract them to you.
Photos tell a story in your InterracialPeopleMeet profile
You’re limited with what you can write, but use the adage ‘A picture is worth a thousand words’ to your advantage. Your first photo should be an attractive, smiling head shot. I really can’t emphasize smiling enough. You want to look open, friendly and approachable in your profile. Try not to use a photo where you have obviously cropped someone out. Your viewers will assume the other person is your ex, even if it is your sister.
You want to use the most flattering photo of yourself for the first photo. Don’t use a photo you took of yourself in a dirty mirror or a photo that’s blurry or poorly cropped. If you’re not naturally photogenic, consider using a professional photographer.
Pros can highlight your best features without resorting to manipulating the photo or making you not look like yourself. If you do go the professional route, use just a couple of these photos because they will all look very similar to your profile viewers, and it is important to tell a different story about you with each photo.
After that, your other photos should reveal aspects of your personality. A selfie of you on your couch isn’t going to tell your potential interracial dating partners much about you, but a photo of you doing something fun or interesting will pique the curiosity of potential dates.
Your profile allows 30 photos, so you can say a lot about yourself here. You also don’t need to stress about looking perfect in all of these “action shots,” either. Your first photo will show you at your most attractive, so if you post a photo where you are crossing the finish line of a half-marathon it’s fine that you don’t look your best.
If giving back to your community is important to you, upload a photo of you working in a soup kitchen. If your favorite exercise is rock climbing, show a photo of yourself climbing. Reveal as much about your personality as you can through the photos.
You should make sure to have at least one full body shot that will give your profile readers a realistic idea of your body shape.
Keep your photos classy, as well. You don’t need to show yourself half-naked to be attractive to someone.
Some quick dos and don’ts of profile writing
It should go without saying, but there are many profiles out there that break this first rule: Don’t insult online dating or the people who use it. You will sound judgmental and condescending, and potential interracial dating partners won’t react favorably to that.
Don’t lie about anything in the profile, because sooner or later, you will be caught. If it is going well with a person you are dating and they realize you’ve lied, a good relationship could end over this. You don’t have to share all your secrets, but don’t lie.
There are a few topics you don’t want to discuss at all in your profile, or even in through email or on the first few dates. It is best not to talk about how much money you want your potential interracial dating partner to make. It’s crass and will weed out some pretty great people who may, temporarily, not be making much money. Don’t discuss sex, either. Sure, you may really want to get laid, but show some restraint and let the relationship develop first.
Don’t talk about your ex in your profile, about how you hate being single, or the bad interracial dating experiences you’ve had lately. To your profile readers, you’re the common element in all these complaints and they will think these problems are your fault. Keep your profile positive and focused on the great things you have to offer in a relationship. Remember, no one says they are looking for a crabby, bitter pessimist.
Don’t put too much personal information on your profile. Your profile is being read by strangers, and not all of them are trustworthy. No one should be able to determine where you work or live, your full name or anything else that could be used to uniquely identify you. This goes for your pictures, too. Don’t take a photo of yourself in front of your new house or your work.
Finally, don’t leave any of the categories or questions blank in your InterracialPeopleMeet profile. This gives the impression that you don’t really care about the whole online dating process. If you can’t be bothered to fill out a simple dating profile, why would anyone think you would be willing to put in the time to create a relationship with them?
Writing Your Profile
So, now that we’ve got the basics of how to write a dating profile, let’s go through the profile creation process.
When you first get to the site, you will be prompted through a few questions. You will answer whether you are:
- Man seeking women
- Woman seeking men
- Man seeking men
- Woman seeking women
You are allowed to select only one option, so select the option that best suits you.
Next, you will be asked to choose your country from a long list of countries. Choose the country you live in.
The next part of the InterracialPeopleMeet profile is your zip code is next. Type in your 5 digit zip code. Don’t be tempted to use a zip code of a more affluent town, you’ll be caught and your interracial dating partner will be disappointed that you lied.
Now that your demographic information has been taken, you choose a user name and password. Your username is the first thing (along with a photo) that potential dates will see about you, so put some thought into it. You can use some or all of your first name, but internet safety requires that you not use your last name.
You have between 4 and 14 characters and are limited to letters and numbers. Bob1234 is a good user name, but BobHoskins2 is terrible – you really need to keep your last name private for now. PhysicsStudent5 is good, Iputoutonfirstdate isn’t.
Your birthday is next. Be honest here. Don’t trim a decade or even just a few years from your age. Also, don’t add a few years to make you seem like you are over 18 or 21. InterracialPeopleMeet.com will calculate your astrological compatibility, so be certain to use your correct month and date as well.
The last thing in this section is your email. If your regular email address is your name, consider creating a different email specifically for your profile.
Now we’re into the good stuff – filling out your profile.
Start by adding a photo of yourself. This should be your most attractive head shot. You will see the photo and it may not look right at first, but the site will crop it properly and it will look great once it’s added to your profile.
Now it’s time to take all the information in the beginning of this post and write your interracial dating profile. If you’re really stuck, the site provides you with samples, but keep in mind that everyone sees these samples so don’t just copy them because that’s what everyone else has already done. You want to stand out and be unique in order to find the most interesting interracial dating partners.
The site will now ask you if you want to subscribe to it. Subscribing to the site provides many benefits, including:
- Enhanced search and match options
- Chatting via instant message
- Seeing who is interested in you
- Sending and reading email
- Seeing members who have flirted with you
- Seeing members who have added you to their favorites list
- View members videos
If you don’t subscribe to InterracialPeopleMeet.com’s additional services, it’s impossible to communicate with interracial dating partners who are interested in you.
The next step is to fill out the questionnaire. Answer these questions honestly to find matches that are truly going to be right for you.
Finally, add more photos to your profile to complete it.
Now you’re ready to begin finding potential matches for yourself.
Good luck and happy dating!
