Are you online dating and feeling like the pool is getting a little tired? Keep seeing the same faces and no one feels very exciting anymore?

Here are three super easy changes you can make without even typing a word.

Consequently, they will also help you to find love. Is it online dating magic? No. But you did say you’re ready to find some love, right?

Then what are you waiting for? 1, 2, 3, GO!

1. Your age range.

If your age range in your online dating profile is only two to three years on either side of your own age, then you are missing out.

You’re online dating, which means you are an adult. Adults can date a whole range of other adults. Not only can adults date other adults, but they can also fall in love.

Now we don’t need to be going all Harold and Maude here, but you need to open up the possibility the love of your life isn’t from your same graduating class.

You may say to yourself, “I don’t want to date someone who doesn’t know the same pop culture references as me.” (Harold and Maude, anyone?)

To which I answer just one thing: What’s more important? Your past or your present and future?

Choose the latter(s) and you’ll find plenty of commonalities are more important.


“I can’t tell you how many females have

some pretty hard guidelines on guys.”

2. Your distance.

I am in love with where I live. I don’t know if I could love a city any more than I do. I have a hard time picturing myself anywhere else.

But I have to weigh two things in my head: Do I love my city more than I could love a man? The answer to that is no.

And if your answer to that is no, you need to expand the radius to which you’re willing to meet someone. If a guy contacts you first, then he knows the distance required to court you, and if he’s willing to span it, let him!

Also, some people travel frequently for work, so making time to meet and see if there’s potential requires a lot less work than you think.

3. Your height preferences.

I can’t tell you how many females have some pretty hard guidelines on guys about this, and they are consequently shooting themselves in the digital foot!

There are quality men out there that aren’t 6 feet tall and over. They know they aren’t 6 feet tall either, so in addition to having phenomenal posture, shorter guys work harder in their careers, treat women better and work out more.

Why? Because they know they have to impress you with the things they can control.

I’ve met tons of these guys as clients – you wouldn’t believe their accomplishments and personalities. Truly, they are great catches. Don’t overlook them! 😉

What else can you change in your profile to get more interesting matches?
