Match Profile Pro Review: Worth It?
Can a profile written by one of Match’s professionals help you catch Mr. or Mrs. Right?
Let’s break it down.
Match Profile Pro – Reasons to Go For It
• If you have *no idea* how to start writing about yourself, paying for help is a much better option than giving up on dating altogether.
• If $50 isn’t a prohibitive amount for you, you could think of it as letting a professional write your “first draft.” Then you can tailor that to your liking, rather than starting from scratch with a blank screen.
Match Profile Pro – Reasons Not To
• In order to write your profile, your ghostwriter first asks you 10 or so questions about yourself. Answering these is a bit of work, and if you’re willing to do this, how much harder is turning your listed hobbies and interests into profile text yourself?
• According to a post on Reddit, the results can be pretty cheesy:
I had match.com’s “profile pro” write my profile, now I am getting so many messages I can’t reply to them all. (self.ForeverAlone)
Not really, I still don’t get any messages. I only said that to try to be funny. I just thought it would be fun to share it…
Being fairly new to the area, I have made quite a few new friends, although most of them are connected with work, and while I enjoy spending time with them, none of them quite fits as the special someone with whom I want to spend lots of time. It’s time to expand my social circle and cast a wider net. That’s where Match.com comes in – bringing new friends (and hopefully one special friend) to my inbox.
I work as a computer programmer and enjoy coding websites and developing video games. I earned my degree in computer science from SUNY Albany in 2008 and have worked in the field ever since. I enjoy my work and the financial stability it offers me.
I enjoy music, play the bass guitar, and while I may never be a rock star, at least I can dream! I work hard, so I like to unwind after work with video games or a night out at the casino playing poker. I tend to be a bit of a homebody and would be best matched with a girl who also likes to stay in and enjoy our favorite TV shows or a good movie with some Mexican takeout food.
My friends will tell you that while I’m quirky and a little bit offbeat, I am intelligent and like to make other people laugh. Puns are my specialty and I like to toss one out when you least expect it.
The girl I am looking for is open minded and friendly. She probably prefers to stay in more than she goes out, might enjoy gaming, and enjoys listening to music. She is likely intelligent and can appreciate a smart joke, a pun, or satire. Her politics are liberal, her conversation skills are strong, and she treats other people like she wants to be treated. She might be a little bit shy, but is ready to get to know a great guy and begin a relationship based on trust and common interests.
My photos are current and I’d appreciate it if yours are as well. I am ready to be that great guy you’re looking for. I offer laughter and devotion, friendship and fun, love and loyalty. Let’s not wait another minute to see if we might have something special. We have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
What’s the Real Trick to Getting Messages and Dates on Match.com?
It’s all about using the right pictures. Because people interpret every word on your profile based on the first impression they already got from your pics.
Great profile text can’t make up for bad photos. And, trust me, most people unknowingly use bad pics that don’t themselves justice whatsoever.
