6 Dating Profile Headlines to Try Now

Believe it or not, dating headlines make online daters nervous. If you fall into this group, relax! Along with your photos, dating profile headlines serve as your first impression and you want that impression to be a good one. That being said, don’t put too much focus on it. You just have to come up with something clever that represents yourself well. If you’re having a hard time, check out the dating profile headlines below. There are a few that you can customize along with some you can copy and paste. 

You Will Never Guess Why I (enter something interesting about yourself)

This is commonly referred to as the click bait approach and it works on everyone – if done right. The point is sparking curiosity so much that they take a closer look at your page and contact you (or at least send a wink or flirt). If you choose this type of headline, make sure it starts a good story or shares a bit of information about yourself that they wouldn’t have learned otherwise. Although this is called the click bait approach, you do want to share something good or use the headline to lead into something humorous.

We’ll Just Lie and Say We Met at a Coffee Shop

This is a funny headline that plays on the hesitation and embarrassment associated with online dating despite its popularity. When you bring a smile to a prospective dates face, you immediately improve the chance that you’ll hear back from them – or that they will get in touch. 

Travels Well

This one is awesome for those who spend most of their time on international dating websites. In addition to being funny, this headline shows that you will be willing to travel if you met the right person. Even better is that it is two simple words! 

The Attribute Description

An example of this would be, "Passionate, spontaneous and fit.” Although a basic choice, these headlines never fail. The reason is the directness. The first few words you write lays your best attributes out on the table and for potential matches, those words are more telling than you think. Better yet, this type of headline shows confidence so try putting your good characteristics at the forefront. When deciding what yours should be, consider your good qualities and go for attractive words like:
  • Thoughtful
  • Optimistic
  • Outgoing
  • Perceptive
  • Ambitious
The words above have been proven to have the most ‘date factor’ on dating websites. In other words, they evoke an attractive picture to the reader that greatly heightens their interest.

Sit, Relax, Grab a Drink and Chat with Me

Dating profile headlines do not get more welcoming than this. It is sure to draw the right singles in and gives readers the idea that chatting with you will be extra special – almost like a real date. As a plus, this headline has a laid-back vibe and having a relaxed attitude is a very attractive quality since it puts people at ease. 

Your Favorite Quote

This can be from a movie, novel or television show. The key to making this work is choosing a relevant quote. The point of entering a quote as a headline on your dating profile is sparking a reaction among other users. You want prospective dates to read it, recognize it, and positively respond by initiating contact. Even if they don’t recognize it, you want it to stand out enough to encourage curiosity. Just don’t try to get super deep. Choose an overly romantic one and the only reaction you’ll get is an eyeroll. 

Don’ts

Now that you have a few examples, let’s finish things off with the top three headline mistakes to avoid. 
1.All caps.
THIS MAKES IT LOOK LIKE YOU’RE SCREAMING!!! Get the point? Screaming will not score dates. It doesn’t matter how good looking you are. 
2.Strange characters and emojis.
No one will know what you’re trying to say. Save the visually expressive texts for your friends. Otherwise, people will write you off as immature before they even talk to you.
3.Desperation
No one finds desperation attractive so avoid any hints of it at all costs. There is no room for pity or a loser mentality in the world of online dating.
