Beyond swiping on girlfriend’s apps for fun when we’re out to drinks, I have very little personal expertise when it comes to online dating, but I know countless couples who met online, like our Marketing Manager Kelly and her boyfriend Alfie. I asked her to share her tips for writing a profile, below—enjoy! I started online dating in I joined the ranks of photos and profiles because, at the time, it felt like my only option. I was years-old and had recently moved from Denver to L. It was a huge risk that left me very lonely for the next three years; trying desperately to make friends, do well at work, and date some nice guys, all while feeling the financial pressure that many people in their early twenties know all too well. When Alfie and I met last December on the app Hinge I was 28 and he was 32 , we’d both been online dating for years, but couldn’t find that one person we wanted to build a lasting relationship with—until we landed on each other’s profiles. As soon as I saw his profile, I immediately knew we would get along, and later learned he felt the same way when he saw mine funnily enough, our first date was terrible, but our second was magical—but that may be a story for another post I wanted to find a real match, not a casual fling, and in the early days, I mostly used OkCupid to write novels about myself online, trying desperately to pack my entire personality into an eight-paragraph, pre-determined questionnaire.
