Building a great online dating profile is no easy task. And, you’re probably going to be the first to say: “tell me about it!” as you read the first few sentences of this post.

This article gives it to you straight up. There are plenty of men out there, just like you, who are desperate to know what they did wrong with their online profiles. What is it about their profiles that keeps them from receiving tons of hits? We’ll answer that as well as give you a few tips on the best way to improve your online dating profile and, at the same time, attract the kind of women that you want.

European dating

“I’m not looking for something long-term”

The majority of European ladies go on online dating sites for two reasons: marriage and long-term relationships. You have to understand that many women from Europe are still very old-fashioned, so only a handful of them have the kind of liberated mind-set that most Western women have. Quite simply, European women do not want to mess around or have short-term relationships. They see no value in it.

“I’m currently without a job.”

If this is you then delete these words. We strongly advise you to remove that sentence if you have it on your profile.You want to come across as a capable man not someone that needs to be taken care of. We are not implying that European ladies are materialistic. The fact is, because of the gender roles that they observed as they were growing up, they view men as the providers, leaders, and decision-makers and not someone who’s in “between jobs” and doesn’t have any sort of goal in his life.

“I have achieved a lot of success. I’m loaded.”

These lines are very typical. They would be wonderful if they were true but if they were not, you’re out of the game if your Russian or Ukrainian girlfriend finds out (and she eventually will). Being untruthful on your profile will cause problems in a long distance relationship. It will be hard to make up for the white lies you told.

“I have kids.”

Let’s stop here for a moment. Having kids is a good thing but, like we said earlier, European women (especially those who have been in their country all their life) are very conservative and the thought of having a blended family (father, stepmom, and children) may be something that’s new to them. It can go both ways: you can get rejected for this and also not.
