How to Screen Women’s Profiles

In short, screening is the investigation of a great number of something looking for those with a particular problem or feature. When it comes to the world of online dating, a “great number of something” means women and a “particular problem or feature” means those you wouldn’t want to date.

Guys, learning how to screen women’s profiles on an online dating site is one of the best ways to weed out the undesirables. Chances are, you’re on a dating site because you don’t have a lot of free time or are having trouble finding “The One.” That’s why tips for spotting the best potential mates require the art of screening.

Here are a few tricks of the trade for locating the profiles that will be the best match for you — or at least cut down on your search time.

1. Is her profile thorough?

If she’s serious about finding true love, then she will take the time and effort to create an online dating profile that really speaks to who she is. If the profile is only half completed and she didn’t even bother to proofread, then she’s not committed to meeting Mr. Right.

2. Is she being honest?

If a woman answers profile questions with half-answers, you can count on the fact that they are also half-truths. Yes, you’re not supposed to talk about politics or religion at a dinner party, but when it comes to finding a compatible life partner, those are examples of things that are important and should be expressed.

3. Is she taking it seriously?

Like it or not, there are people who have signed up for online dating sites because they were either “dared” or a family member/friend pressured them into it.

If it seems like a woman isn’t taking her profile seriously, she might not be. Try and feel out her true intentions before getting too invested.

Screening a women’s profile is one of the first steps to finding that gal who will make your heart go aflutter. Don’t settle for just anyone. Do your homework, read her profile thoroughly, and follow your gut instinct.

    I’ve seen a lot of profiles that truly seem legitimate but when I message them, there’s been automated response. It was bizarre

    haha, this is so true. whenever I get messages from girls on my okcupid profile, I think to myself: these women know they can choose the information they’re putting on their profile, right?
