In case you didn’t hear, date bids on WhatsYourPrice.com are rapidly increasing, and we want to help you make the most out of our site. More than 4300 females received bids of 500 dollars or more to go on a date last year alone. If you were not one of these females, don’t worry. We are here to help. Follow the below steps to improve your profile and overall dating experience with WhatsYourPrice.com!
Images are the most important element of your profile. If you have bad photos, chances are most men are bouncing away from your information almost immediately. Although we would never require professional images, make sure your photos look clean and crisp. All too frequently, we see blurry photos or selfies that look pixelated. One selfie is alright, but avoid a selfie outbreak by providing more alternative, classier options.
Don’t skimp out on the photos, either. Having 1 or 2 photos is sufficient, but why wouldn’t a user want to add more? Try adding a headshot, a full length picture and photos of your favorite activities. Activity-based photos show personality and engage prospective dates. No one wants to date a boring girl, show them your fun side!
When describing yourself, keep the length in between a tweet and a novel. 1 or 2 sentences just doesn’t cut it, 2 or 3 paragraphs is just right, and anything more can lose their attention. Have fun with it and don’t feel intimidated by that empty paragraph field with a blinking cursor.
Our suggested format:
Tagline/ Catchy Sentence
Paragraph 1: This could be a fun, playful blurb about what you like to do for fun, In turn, this could include the places you would enjoy frequenting for a date. This is where you keep the reader interested and begging for more, more, more.
Paragraph: 2: End the “About Me” section with what you are looking for in a partner, and how you would make their time worth while. Remember, you want to leave a lasting impression, so this really counts!
Never settle for less than you’re worth. OK, so if a male offers you a $100 bid you have to accept, right? Wrong. The average bid on WhatsYourPrice.com is now $130, so that $100 is not so high after all. Try starting a conversation with them instead and see where it goes. Sometimes all it takes is a little bit of smooth talking, and he’ll be whistling a different tune…to your beat.
What attracted fresh faces to your profile 6 months ago, won’t keep them interested forever. Also, as women, we love to change our look. If your hair used to be blonde, but you decided to dye it black for the winter, update your photos. Surprise is nice, but you still want your pictures to closely reflect who you are as a person, not who you used to represent.
The same goes for when you change your job or relocate. A new career or even hobby change could attract a different type of love interest, and a new city could mean thousands of fresh connections. Who knows what type of connection you could be missing by failing to change your current city from a small town to the capital of a booming state!
Lastly, BE PROACTIVE. Too many females just sit back and wait, and wait, and wait. Hey, this may work for some lucky ladies, but certainly not for everyone. It’s alright to be a little aggressive and show a man you are a lady who knows what she wants — it is online dating, after all! If you don’t get a response, it’s not the end of the world. You will never know your full potential until you take the reins in your own hands and initiate conversation.
Are you one of the savvy online daters who lands high bids? We would love to hear advice from the experts on this one!
