Relationship Counsellor Shivani Sadhoo Shares the Tricks to Create Perfect Dating Profile With FEMINA MAGAZINE

Everybody agrees that you are a great catch — you’re nice, funny, have great hair, can make super cocktails and you absolutely love dogs. What’s not to love, right? Then why is it that the only responses that you get on your online dating app are from creepy people who are clearly in the online dating game just for cheap thrills? Where are all the good men, given the millions of users that dating apps like TrulyMadly, Woo and Tinder India now claim to have? Tinder, which set up office in India last January, records an average of 14 million swipes a day—so how come your profile is just sitting collecting duds?

The answer might lie in the most obvious place: your dating bio. Delhi's eminent Marriage Counsellor Shivani Misri Sadhoo, founder of Saarthi Counselling Services in Delhi, says, “Your online dating profile acts as the first pitch to potential partners. It gives them a hint about your personality and what kind of partner you’d make. Ideally, your bio should spark curiosity and invite the reader to initiate a chat.”
