How Music Can Improve Your Dating Profile

Leave a Comment


It’s Music Monday, so instead of posting a favorite song, I thought I’d share with you one of my favorite tips for online dating profiles.

Do you remember hearing a song on the radio that made you hum in the car and put a smile on your face? If so, it’s time to play “Name that Online Dating Tune.”

If you failed creative writing in high school, here’s exactly can you do to grab the attention of a potential digital suitor and fill up that date card, right now.

While you can use social media to include your Spotify accounts and can post what you’re listing to, if your views and responses are slim-to-none, here’s a tip from a former music-radio DJ, me!

When I write Irresistible dating profiles for singles looking for love online, I spend a lot of time talking to them about what they are the most passionate about. Whether it’s music, art, travel, or hiking, singles need to make it easy for others to write to them with a more than just generic topic.

Still, it’s difficult for most singles to create a catchy screen name or headline. If you’re still stumped, my recommendation is to think about the songs you love.

Are you ready to play “Name that Online Dating Tune?”

It’s simple to do. Just find the title or lyrics of a song that makes you smile and might be familiar to those viewing your profile. Boom! You now have a catchy screen name. When you use a partial lyric from a song, invite those looking at your profile to fill in the blanks. It’s fun, it’s flirty, engaging and it works.

Once when I heard the song “Tiny Dancer” by Elton John on the radio, I decided to use the lyrics in my online dating profile with the first line of, “Blue Jean Baby, LA Lady” as a catchy screen name. The first sentence of the profile bio started with the next line of the song,  “Seamstress for what band?”

The views to the dating profile increased by over 1000%. Some who knew the answer wrote about their favorite Elton John song. Others who didn’t know the answer took action and actually did a Google search and typed in the lyrics to find the answer to respond correctly. They viewed, they winked, and they replied.
