Sample Dating Profiles | Lisa Shield

The best dating profiles are a mixture of depth and humor. They captivate the reader’s attention and compel them to want to know more. Writing your own profile, however, can be very difficult. Even the best writers hire professionals to write their bios for them.

I have a simple, foolproof process for writing profiles that starts with a casual interview, in person or on the phone. Then, I write your profile using your own words and phrases, exactly the way you said them. My clients are blown away by how the end result sounds exactly like them! Even better are the compliments they receive: " Yours was the most unique profile I have ever read!" "Your dating profile was hilarious! I couldn't stop laughing!" "I loved your profile and just have to meet you!" Here are some excerpts from among the hundreds of profiles I've written for my clients:

"What else can you expect if we were to date? I will really listen and hear what you have to say. If we become friends, you just might have a friend for life. I come in handy. As a native Los Angeleno, I know this city like the back of my hand. My friends often use me as their personal “Zagat” guide since I seem to know almost everything when it comes to going out and doing things in LA. Not sure how this happened because I swear I’ve spent the majority of my life in front of a computer writing. Could it be all those magazines I read? I’m a good cook but I tend to reserve these skills for the all too infrequent but elaborate dinner party. I can also debate Yogurtland vs. Pinkberry with vigor and think that spending hours at Amoeba Records is an essential ingredient for a perfect day. And, as much as I love my apartment, I’d rather be playing outdoors, holding hands or dancing in the street, cracking each other up with a look or an inside joke, and sharing this thing called life." - Woman early 30's


"I act like a total dork most of the times. Sometimes I can’t believe I’m 41 and a lawyer. I can’t read a map. I can’t even read a GPS. I mean I can read them but it ended up taking me 4 hours to drive from Portland, Oregon to Salem, Oregon because I had the GPS on pedestrian mode. I can be in a room and in no time I will make a mess. I forget things mid senten..." - Woman 40’s


"I try to be a good person. If you have a problem, I will definitely listen and be there for you. I pay attention to what others are saying. I have scruples. I don’t tell everything about myself right off the bat but I am also not shy on a date. It can be hard to get a read on me at first but women seem to find this quality mysterious rather than annoying. I have a dry sense of humor. If we click, we’ll laugh a lot. I am opinionated and blunt without being offensive. Most people can tell that I come from a good place. I am trying to stop interrupting others when they’re talking and to listen without thinking about the next thing I’m going to say. Like everyone, I am a work in progress." - Male early 30’s


"I want to meet a man I can have fun with, someone who has a great sense of humor and loves to laugh and play. It would be great if you are wise. Open-mindedness and intelligence are also good qualities. I love men who are willing to try new things, travel to new places, and try new kinds of cuisine. Other things I admire are men who are good communicators, family-orientated, and honest. Did I mention that I love romance? But then again, who doesn’t? You don’t have to be a millionaire, but it is important that you have a career you love and a good relationship with money. I’m giving and I would love to meet someone who is giving, as well. And even though I will probably give you hell sometimes, I hope you won’t want to change me. If we argue, grab me, kiss me passionately, and I promise you that I will shut up." - Woman early 30’s


"I used to be a tomboy. Growing up in Guyana, I only played with boys. I was tanned, skinny and undisciplined. Watch out because I’m still a feisty little tiger. And I still like to play with the boys. I guess nothing much has changed. I’m lively and I’m very fun to be around. I’ll try almost anything. I am an action sports kind of girl—I love everything from jet skiing to horseback riding. I also love to explore different cuisines, travel to places close and far away, see movies, attend Broadway shows, or see a performance at Carnegie Hall." - Woman mid 30’s


“Walking my cat who has an identity crisis, obsessed about making the perfect macaroon, have a bunch of loud-mouthed friends, cooking chili crab (a Singapore national dish), curry from scratch, I have a sewing room, I bruise easily, especially when I go pole dancing, I have to tell my co-workers that I’m a klutz. I wasn’t getting abused I was just getting abused by the pole. I always have crazy businesses for online. I have been known to grab a bucket of Benjamin Moore pain t and repaint my room for fun. I love international food—my craving can be so bizarre. I am willing to drive 50 miles just to get lunch. If I’m sick, my comfort food is porridge and Asian pickles. I want to go to Greece, Santorini, a beach resort where I can show off my lotus tattoo. You’ll have to find out where it is.” - Woman early 20’s


"I am generous and kind, and feel that I could offer the right woman an extraordinary life. I sincerely want you to know who I am. I have a great deal of determination. When people tell me something can’t be done, that’s when I most want to do it. I came to this country with nothing, no connections, nothing, and became the general manager of a leading start-up in the Silicon Valley. My talent is that I see what other people don’t see and I do things that have never before been done. I am an out-of-the-box thinker and I hold over 3-dozen patents in my field. My designs are simple, elegant, and uncomplicated. People have said that they are like the Apple of lighting. I’ll let you be the judge!" - Guy in his mid-40's


"Pole dancing is something that is still new for me. I started because I wasn’t very feminine, to tell you the truth. It has to do with myself as a woman. Pole dancing connected my emotional feeling and helped me to stay with the emotion of dancing. When you do it you have to be in it and not distracted by so many things. It was kind of funny because last week my instructor told me that I really let go and went with the music rather than trying to control myself. I really let go and stayed in the moment. It has to do with me control, judgment, all the shoulds and just accept what is in the moment. For the longest time I couldn’t do it. Probably the same thing in relationships." - Woman mid 30’s


"My ideal partner doesn’t sweat the small stuff. He’s open and rolls with the punches. He’s emotionally mature and a great communicator. He doesn’t have to work in a creative job but it would be great if he has a creative outlet. I definitely want someone who is witty. He doesn’t have to be the most attractive guy but if he’s witty, I’m in. It’s important that he’s loyal, secure within himself and reliable—I want a guy I can count on. He can be social and he likes time alone. I don’t really have a type. For me, it’s all about personality. I would love to find someone like me who is curious about trying new things and likes to learn. He’s the kind of guy I can take to a party and know that he can handle himself. But every now and then he’ll look at me across the room and know exactly what I’m thinking." - Woman early 50’s


"On the first date my magical fairy godmother would appear and dress me in a beautiful ball gown compete with glass slippers and a rhinestone tiara. My pumpkin carriage arrives and whisks me away to Starbucks where you are waiting with a hot cup of Zen tea and a blueberry scone. After some sparkling conversation and witty banter, I dash off to the parking garage at the stroke of midnight leaving nothing but my slipper and warm memories behind. Or we could just go for a hike." - Woman early 40’s
