Personal ad tip #1 Your profile information should be an honest reflection of who you are. If they can't accept you for who you are right now, then they are not worth your time. Being deceitful will catch up to you one day. Personal ad tip #2 Desperation, whining, and a 'poor is me' attitude is not becoming. Be upbeat, positive, and talk about all the great things you have to offer that special someone you are looking for. Positive people attract positive people. Personal ad tip #3 Post a fantastic recent photo of yourself. Also, include photos of activities you currently do. You will find that you will get more winks and emails. Personal ad tip #4 Always use proper spelling and grammar. There are enough software programs and grammar/spell checkers on the internet to make sure your profile text is as perfect as it can be.
