Dating profiles can be challenging to create in your quest for finding true love. You have to understand that there is more to your Christian dating profile than just putting your name and filing up the character count in the bio description. Creating a Christian profile is different from what you normally put on mainstream dating websites and mobile applications like Tinder, Bumble, and Happn.
Your profile is also the reason why you may not be getting those likes and matches as the information put forth may not meet the needs of Christian singles registered on the website. To make your profile interesting, a makeover may be beneficial.
Here are a few tips and pointers that will help you give your online profile a makeover to stand out from the rest.
Your Profile Name
Christian profiles don’t look good with profile names like SassySu97 or Babemagnet143. The name you put on your profile is your first impression even before your potential partner checks out the profile picture. It goes without saying, Christian singles are not looking for a Babemagnet or Sassysu. In fact, many would prefer you include the name of the almighty or any reference to Jesus. Even that may not necessarily pan out the way you want your partner to know you. Nevertheless, add a decent profile name so that singles don’t have to Google to understand the meaning of a rather cheesy username.
Your Profile Picture
Your bio says who you are but a picture is worth a thousand words and whatever you post online will be visible to users on the dating website. Do not necessarily waste time on outward appearances when it comes to taking pictures for a Christian dating website. Most users will want to appreciate inner beauty and the appearance doesn’t necessarily matter. Also, avoid pretentious selfies and stick to a few good candid pictures. You can also upload a couple of group pictures.
Set Relationship Goals
Christian singles are looking for someone with whom they plan to spend the rest of their lives. So naturally, try and avoid using preset options that randomize a bunch of profiles and make your task of choosing a partner more challenging than it needs to be. Most profiles on popular Christian dating websites will have users looking to find a partner who shares both their religious and personal values. You can mention on your profile that you are willing to settle down and have children. Mainstream dating websites follow a different approach where your casual dating profile might get you matches based on contradicting preferences. However, most Christian dating websites are designed to cater to the needs of users looking for a serious relationship and not a fling.
Lying on your dating profile is easy and you will be surprised to know many people do it on a regular basis. However, at the end of the day, nothing is hidden from the Lord. Be honest to yourself, the Almighty, and your future partner by stating the truth and nothing but the truth on your profile. Tinder, Bumble, Happn, and similar platforms can fetch you results with a fluffed up profile but it won’t do you any good on a niche Christian single dating site.
