How To Write A Great Dating Profile
A great dating profile changes over time. Back in 2010, I was all about showcasing my quirky sense of humour while still trying to convey actual things about me to help other daters know who I am. Back in 2010, I was really only just dating on plenty of fish and okcupid both of which had almost no limit on word count since they were purely website based. See my profile below:
