Transcript for 3 Tips to Make Your Online Dating Profile Stand Out
this half hour, so many people online looking for that perfect match but how can you stand out from the crowd? ABC's Sara Haines takes a look at overhauling your online dating profile and she's with us here this morning. Hi, David. This is exactly how I met my husband a few years back an expert took a look at my profile, pumped it up and the rest is history so you won't want to miss this. Take a listen. ? navigating online dating can be tricky. I've been online dating for the last 2 1/2 years and maybe gone on seven or eight dates, so there's been a lot of messaging back and forth. That kind of gets exhausting after a while. Reporter: Morgan Brady is a 27-year-old event planner from Boston who's been unlucky in the love department. So we have enlisted digital dating expert Lori Davis to help overhaul Morgan's online dating life. First up, analyzing Morgan's profile. I'm going to look at your profile the way a guy looks at your profile. Reporter: Tip one, your online dating profile should tell a story. For example, Morgan says she loves exploring new places. Lori says she needs to get more specific. What is fun to you because fun to you could be totally different for fun to someone else. Reporter: Photos, the pictures you put on your profile should be you only. Free of any instagram filters and don't be shy to show a full body shot. I would love to see a main photo of Morgan that's a clear head and shoulders shot with a bright color shirt on. Reporter: Last but not least we analyze the messages between Morgan and her potential suitors. Tip three, instead of, hey, ask them about something specific in their profile. I'm a budding poker player too and in March heading to Vegas but quick trips to Atlantic City are fun too. Where do you play. Three lines. And it's kind of conversational. Reporter: Lori had one last piece of advice before sending Morgan off to find her prince charming. My biggest tip, especially for you, is that when you first meet up with someone, you need to hug them right away. Yes. Because you have had this physical barrier in between you. Even if the hug feels awkward it will make the whole rest of the night more comfortable. Reporter: Now, funny enough about that hug, the first time I met my husband max I went if for a hug, he went in for a reach. We had that oh okay, we're hugging. It doesn't always work in execution. Another tip I got make sure your pictures represent how you look most days, don't do the fancy prom shots because that's not how you're going to look when they meet you so hopefully that helps.
