Many of my married friends have remarked over the years that writing profiles “sounds like so much fun!” But if you’re the one writing it about yourself, it pretty much just feels super awkward.Basically, you’re trying to present yourself to complete strangers in a way that’s positive but not braggy, open but not overly vulnerable, attractive but not vain, confident but not cocky, etc. And of course, you have to select the perfect photos to match, since statistically your cover photo is what makes people actually “click on you” or not.Clearly from my attempts doing this for myself, and reading hundreds of profiles of others trying to do the same, this is no easy feat.So if you’re active on an online dating site, you generally find yourself having to sort through yes’s and no’s every single day. And yes of course, it’s awesome and a total honor to have people interested in you.And yes of course, it’s totally ok to turn down people (especially the creepsters) who you know won’t be a fit.

And when someone presses for why I’m not OK Cupid-ing or Tinder-ing or EHarmonizing my way through these single years, I have also learned to articulate a few reasons.And after turning down the 20th, or 50th, or 100th person who contacts you — even if you have full confidence that they are indeed “no’s” — it can start to wear on your heart in kind of a backwards way.And you start to feel guilty about saying “no’s”, especially to people whose intentions are good.If your friends are no longer setting you up, it’s time to take matters into your own hands. There is a very specific, strategic, seven-word question that the world seems to have agreed is the politically correct way to approach the topic.
