Here at GayCupid we have a few tips to help you write an attractive, winning gay personal that will stand above the competition and most importantly get you some dates!
The first most important step is to know what you are looking for! Simply saying that you are looking to find a gay single for dating will attract all the tall gay singles, short gay singles, fat, balding and sexy gay singles (I think you get the picture!). Make your online dating experience a good one by eliminating the single gay men you know you are definitely not attracted to. Make a list of all the qualities you want in your gay partner, such as age, height, likes, hobbies, color … this may seem superficial, but why waste your time with people you are not attracted to?
Like all dating sites, gay dating services like to maintain a certain level of anonymity, which means all gay singles using the site, must usually have a screen or an online profile name. Be as creative as you like with your chosen name. Typical screen names can range from gaysexyguy to simple names like looking4luv or singlegay.
Gay picture profiles- Gay dating services all have a section for members to upload their photos. A photo is the best way to market yourself. Most gay singles new to the online gay dating scene seem to think that posting x- rated pictures is the way to attract some attention. Of course you will receive a large number of responses, but are you looking for quantity or quality or are you looking for a sexual relationship or a long term one?
Profile headings should be eye catching because they determine whether someone will read your profile further or simply move on to the next gay guy! Gay singles are looking for that one profile heading that will stand out above the rest so put some thought into your header, make it interesting and as original as possible.
