With all this talk about online dating recently, I’m excited to announce a brand new service I’m offering: personalized online dating profile makeovers! You may remember a couple months ago I mentioned my interest in offering such a service one day, and that day is here. I know for some people, writing, in general, is intimidating, and when it comes to writing about themselves, it can feel like the most awkward — if not impossible — of feats. So, that’s where I’ll come in — to offer support, guidance, and yes, even a little hand-holding. Whether you’re a veteran of online dating, a total novice, or you’re only in the early stages of considering the grand adventure, I can tweak your profile and help you get the kind of attention you’re hoping for.
What I’m not offering is to write the profile for you. The words will be yours — I’ll just help you arrange them in a way that expresses exactly what it is you want to express. As I say in my description of the service, I will:
* Edit any generic language (i.e. “I like to have fun”) to reflect your unique interests, by incorporating answers from your questionnaire, using your own words.
* Eliminate redundancy or potential “red flags.”
* Correct any spelling, grammar, punctuation, and syntax issues.
* Provide a personalized headline.
All you have to do is send me your existing profile, the name of the dating site you’re on, and your ID or handle name, and I’ll send you a questionnaire to get a better sense of your personality, lifestyle, and what you’re looking for. As soon as I receive your information, I’ll get to work on editing your new and improved profile and will respond to you within a week.
I’m totally excited about this new endeavor. I can’t wait to get to know some of you a little better and lend relationship help in a different way than I have through my columns. Thank you for your initial enthusiasm and interest, and for trusting me to be discreet, candid, and compassionate in helping you find a fulfilling and happy relationship.
