On Making One’s Profile #Leagueworthy…
PICTURES We could write an entire blog post on this. But here’s some quick tips. If you don’t have a kid, don’t put pictures with a kid. It’s just confusing. Don’t put your ex in your photos. Ease up on mirror selfies. Show 1-2 full body shots. Clear face photo. Take off the sunglasses. No group shots. The people in here are busy and don’t have time to waste hunting down what you really look like on Facebook. Own it.
ABOUT ME We put a character limit on this because Leaguers don’t have time to read novels. They’re busy. If you can describe yourself in the space allotted, do it. If you can’t, well, maybe just put your favorite emoji.
INTERESTS We pull some stuff from Facebook to get you started, but have fun with this one. Especially if you’re one of those people who claim to be ‘better offline’…
EDUCATION & PROFESSION We pull this from LinkedIn, so edit it there if you don’t like what you see (and then push the refresh button on your profile).
PREFERENCES If you’re only trying to date 6’4″ people within 1 mile from you, then the pool of people who will see you is much smaller and your match rate will decrease substantially. That’s because we only show your profile to users who fit your preferences. Be open-minded!
PRESENCE Log in daily so we can learn your taste. The more people you ‘heart’, the more matches you will have and the more we can learn your preferences. It’s that simple. The matching algorithm prioritize users who are logging in regularly over users who aren’t, and non-flaky users over flaky users.
