Don’t Assume Profile Has No Meaning: What is Their Profile Saying to You?
This is just like meeting someone new or you get invited to visit someone at their home for the first time. You feel a certain tone or essence about a person. So, what tone are you picking up from their profile? This helps you get an idea of how meaningful a person can be. In other words, you are reading between the lines of their profile. Do you feel they are sincere, happy, bitter, or unhappy? Do you sense a certain type of behavior from the way they provided written information about themselves? You often get a sense of how true someone is and whether they have sincere motives for finding someone to be with.
Don’t Access a Profile Just by Personality Claims
Studies have shown that online dating profiles are common areas of personal interest people may not always be honest about. In some cases you can’t depend on personality claims a person says in their profile. This is because some people may not be honest about such characteristics. Personality traits include being optimistic or humorous. There is nothing wrong in saying you are optimistic or humorous, but some people may not know how to describe their characteristics. Instead, they may post characteristics commonly found in an online dating profile without truly taking the time to think about who they really are. Some say personality claims may not mean anything at face value. But, it can be helpful to find profiles that provide a little more evidence of a specific characteristic a person claims to have. For instance, they may share a personal experience that would back up their claim.
A Profile is Just a Preview of a Person: Don’t Get Attached to It
No matter how many profiles you have read and claim you think you know someone because of what they share, you shouldn’t get attached to them because of what was mentioned in their profile. In other words, when you meet them in person try not to assume they are everything based on what was mentioned. Their profile should give you an idea of what to expect, but you should consider other concrete evidence such as their demeanor, eye contact, manners and so forth when you meet them in person.
