“While it's exciting to date someone who can help us broaden our horizons, we want to know that we match when it comes to our core ideals, values, and beliefs.” Stating that you look forward to taking several major trips every year or what your religious beliefs are might turn off some people.

You can write about being a Christian and being undeserving of even God’s grace, but don’t make yourself sound like you have low self-esteem. Beware Of Being Superficial Try not to sound like you’re shallow and only looking based on appearances; that’s one way to be completely and quickly overlooked.
People desire a Christian and God-honoring confidence, someone who can be spiritually strong, but also beautifully humble in the process. Now, I’m speaking as a woman, but I’ve seen this one plenty of times: “I’m looking for a beautiful and fit Christian girl who likes to workout, eat healthy and doesn’t shy away from a football game with a beer.” This is one sure way to try and sound down-to-earth, but it really just comes across as offensive. Try something more along the lines of “I’m looking for a Christian woman who’s beautiful from the inside out, who enjoys eating fairly healthy and wouldn’t mind that I work out from time to time, and who also would enjoy a football game or two.” This conveys that you are looking for a good match and partner, not just an attractive accessory who checks off all the boxes on your list. Include Pictures Of Friends And Family While you should definitely include a solo photo or two, it also helps to include other photos of those you love and care about in your dating profile.
Successful online dating means checking into the site or app at times when traffic is heavy and more people are also looking and swiping.
Swiping is consistently heavier on Sunday, according to data from Bumble, but low on Fridays.
