‘People have to imagine how they’ll fit into your life, so describing yourself as a “bookworm and internet addict” makes them feel they’d never see you,’ explains match.com’s relationship expert Kate Taylor.
A study of 1.2 million profiles by Plenty of Fish showed women who got into a relationship online used the word “relationship” 16 percent more than women who were still single. Why not be honest and speak from that place in your heart?
If they don’t and it’s still funny, you look like you’re funny and original. Apparently people who talk about relationships and love find relationships and love.
Most people in a study conducted by the Pew Research Center were drawn to individuals whose profiles were positive but not over-the-top glowing.
