Here’s the thing about being added to someone’s favorite list: you’re not really a favorite. You’re one of that person’s favorites and that’s significantly less flattering.
This is especially galling when the person adds you as a favorite and then doesn’t get back to you for a while. When this happens, it gives the impression that he or she will “get to you” once they’ve contacted their other, more favorite, favorites.
Can you see how labeling someone a favorite could make you one their least favorites?
I understand that there are a lot of potential matches online and that a favorites list is an easy way to organize them. However, I strongly suggest you find another way. In fact, I have a very simple tip:
Keep a folder with screen shots of the profiles.
It’s an easy way to organize those matches who you’d like to contact. In addition, it allows you to keep a full record of their story and interests.
More importantly, it accomplishes what you need without the risk of repelling the very people you’re trying to attract.
Question for you.
Do you say yay or nay to winks and likes? For me, it’s an instant “nay”, what about you?
The best way to be “the” favorite.
As an ad writer and online dating profile writer, I know how to create “appeal”. It’s what I’m trained to do. So hire me to help you market yourself online. I offer 15 minute phone consultations where I can answer online dating questions, critique your dating profile and offer suggestions on improving it, or help you craft those first emails.
I also offer two writing services: one where I revise your existing dating profile; the other where I write your profile on your behalf (but in a way that truly sounds like you). I do this by asking a lot of very interesting questions about you and your life. Then I craft the profile with your stories and expressions.
Check out the online dating samples, or get started on uncovering some of your unique traits using the personality questionnaire. Once you’ve completed it, send your answers to me. I’ll make sure you go online with a presentation that’s dynamic and irresistible!
