You are a unique and special snowflake. Or maybe you’re just a run-of-the-mill kind of guy, but you know that you have something to offer some lucky lady. Even so, it’s difficult to stand out on dating and hookup sites. Even on the biggest ones, the populations usually pretty severely skewed, and rarely in your favor. It’s always you trying to stand out in the herd of hundreds of dudes trying to get the attention of a lady. How can you best learn to differentiate yourself?
Bringing attention to your unique hobbies and interests is the quickest and easiest way to catch a lady’s attention when she’s browsing your dating or hookup site profile. But there’s a certain way to go about it that will really make you stand head and shoulders above the rest.
No Bullshit about Liking Movies and Walks on the Beach
While you might actually like sitting on the couch watching Netflix and strolling down the waterline, there’s a few things you have to keep in mind. Number one is, keep your focus on your interesting, unique hobbies. Number two is, be more specific and descriptive. So saying that you like movies is not only ridiculously generic, it also says nothing about you and why any prospective women should be interested in you. What movies do you like specifically and what genres? Are you interested in the film-making process, have you studied it at all? Are you really into special effects, and the technology by which they’re made? If you have to include broad and generic interests like these, you need to dress them up and expand on them a little to make them a worthwhile addition.
Focus on What’s Unique about You
Everyone’s bound to have at least one unique interest or hobby. If you don’t, get one. Having common interests, or at least being an interesting person to talk to, is the key to making people want to know more about you. Even if she’s not necessarily into, say, World War Two history, she might see the note on your profile that you’ve written papers about it, and be intrigued enough about your work to want to respond to your messages. (General note, don’t lie about that kind of stuff. It’s not a great idea to start off a relationship on a basis of dishonesty, and she’ll find out eventually.)
