IslamicMarriage.com has the largest collection of Muslim singles you’ll find anywhere on the internet. But with such a big selection, it may feel difficult to stand out from the crowd. Luckily, creating a great profile on Muslim dating sites isn’t about being “better” than everyone else on the site: it’s about showing other Muslim singles just who you are and what you’re looking for in a match.
But while that sounds simple, sometimes it’s hard to figure out exactly what to do to present yourself in the best possible light. That’s why we’ve created a list of tips for creating the perfect Muslim dating profile. Follow these tips, and we’re sure you’ll see your results improve here at IslamicMarriage.com or on any other Muslim dating site!
Honesty is the golden rule of online dating profiles. If you want any success at all (in the long term) when it comes to dating online, you’re going to have to present an accurate representation of yourself. After all, nothing will turn off a potential match quicker than meeting you and realizing that you’re not who you claimed to be!
This, of course, doesn’t mean that you have to share every little aspect of your life with the Muslim singles on our site. For instance, you don’t need to talk about bad habits or the fact that you’re still getting over a previous relationship. But what is in your profile should be an accurate reflection of who you are. It can be the best you that you want to show the world, but it shouldn’t be someone you’ve invented to make yourself look better to potential dates.
It can be tempting to post every single picture of yourself to an online dating site, but that’s a mistake. Remember what we said above about showing off the best version of you to the world? Pictures are a major part of this, as your photos are likely to be the first thing other Muslim singles on our site see – and it might be what makes them decide to look deeper at your profile.
With that in mind, we recommend that you try to post only the best pictures of yourself. Rather than adding a couple of mediocre photos that won’t really improve your profile, stick to just a handful of your favorite pictures – the kind that you think really capture you at your best. This should also include one or two good pictures of you that help to show off your personality: playing a sport, doing an activity, volunteering at a local organization, or whatever else it is that you spend your time on.
One of the best ways to stand out on a Muslim dating site is by giving people a real view of who you are, rather than simply using the same clichés seen on hundreds of other profiles. Give specific information about your likes, dislikes, and interests, and you’ll seem a whole lot more interesting to a potential date.
For instance, almost everyone mentions that they like music and that they enjoy eating out on their profiles. Instead, let someone know that you’re interested in jazz and enjoy seafood. Talk in generalities, and you’ll be forgetful; provide specifics, and you’ll start to look and sound like a real person that other Muslim singles could find interesting even before they ever talk to you.
There are some things that simply need to be mentioned in every good online dating profile. We like to think of these as the essentials: those pieces of information that everyone wants to know, and that no profile is complete without.
For instance, you’re going to want to let people know what your current job is – or, if you’re not working, where you’re going to school or what field you’re trying to get into. You’ll also want to mention whether or not you have children, or whether or not you might want to have kids in the future. You should also make sure to mention if there are any specific ethnic, religious or other restrictions you have for the kinds of Muslim singles you might be willing to date.
These are the typical essentials you’ll find in a Muslim dating profile, but you might have a few other things you want to include. If there’s anything that you absolutely must have in a date – or if there’s anything special about your situation that will affect your dating life – you should really include it in your profile. It’s better to be up front and meet people who are right for you, rather than exchanging messages with promising looking dates only to later find out that there’s no way it could possibly work out between you.
By following these tips, you should find that you not only get more attention from other Muslim singles on our site, but that they tend to be better matches for you. If you want to fill out your own profile on IslamicMarriage.com, you can sign up for a free account here today!
