Host: What are the most important don'ts when writing your profile for online dating? Toni Coleman: The important don'ts are again, do not be negative. Do not be negative in the tone of your ad, do not say things like, "Gee, I can not believe I am doing this," or "This is the first time I have done this." There is defensiveness there. It is also insulting to the person who is reading the ad, like, "Okay, so, what is wrong with me that I am doing this?" So, you don't want to include any of that. You do not want to make the ad too long and rambling. You do not want to repeat yourself again using a lot of adjectives, using a lot of generalities. You definitely, do not want to have grammatical or spelling errors. And you do not want to post it without a picture because a vast majority of ads that do not have a picture; do not get looked at. People just click them off. So, those things are very, very important.
