Last week, I signed up for Match.com. I was a little overwhelmed by the process, but I’m overcoming that anxiety because online dating is a jungle we all have to navigate!
Matchmaker David Cruz is the one who convinced me to get a membership. He explained men who pay for online dating websites (instead of free apps) tend to be more invested in committed relationships.
Now that I’ve had a few days to set up my profile and learn all about Match.com, we invited Cruz back to the show to grade my profile.
Turns out I’m a solid B student! There are definitely some improvements I can make, especially when it comes to my profile photos.
“One of the things that’s super important is her key profile photo. It just shows a clear photo of her, she’s smiling, that’s great. That gives her the A,” Cruz said earlier this morning.
“But as we scroll along through her other photos…there are photos of other people in these photos. It’s really confusing to guys, especially when they’re going on and they’re trying to distinguish, like, ‘Is this person great? Do I really like this person?’ and then you have photos of a lot of other people, even other women in the photo, because that can be distracting to guys.”
