.’s “It’s the End of the World as We Know it,” the World Wide Web has made tracking down and securing even the most obscure objects your heart desires a lot easier.
Yet, when it comes to online matters of the heart, finding “the one” often remains elusive. That’s because love, like the Internet, has a lingo and etiquette all its own. Combining the two in an online dating scenario can complicate the delicate dance even further.
Once it was: “Boy meets Girl,” and, depending on circumstance, “Boy gets (or does not get) Girl.” Now, it’s Boy posts profile. Girl posts profile. Profile does or does not pique interest. Maybe Boy and Girl meet—or maybe they don’t, and if they do, do Boy and Girl live up to their profiles and live happily ever after?
It Had to Be [Virtual] You
You never get a second chance to make a first impression. Bottom line: a dating profile—your first impression—is “sell copy,” and you’re the product being marketed. The trick for you as “Boy” to get the biggest bang for your buck is to optimize your pitch so it will best appeal to Girl’s brain with content that directly tags her where Cupid lives.
For that, you need to combine persuasive language with the kind of images that makes your profile pop rather than flop, which, as many have learned from experience, isn’t as easy as it sounds.
There are myriad of dating sites on which you can cast your line to do a little love fishing. While many of said online matchmaking entities equate “attraction” with a mathematical equation, Nerve Dating (an off-shoot of the sex/dating/culture site, Nerve.com), has incorporated social media conventions into their platform that allow soulmate searchers to create connections via interactive conversations, rather than simply writing essays, checking off endless lists, and hoping for the best.
We’ve tapped Nerve.com’s dating columnist Caitlin Robinson, AKA Miss Information, to offer some tips and tricks to those of you prepping to post your profile.

Even high-strung people often think they’re ‘laid-back.’ Find something more descriptive.” Other common terms to be avoided: “cool,” “awesome,” “funny.” “Nearly everyone ‘loves to laugh’ and ‘enjoys fun.’ None of that sets you apart. Instead of saying, ‘I’m witty,’” Robinson suggests, “say, ‘I’m one part Ricky Gervais, one part Jon Stewart and a soupcon of Fred Flintstone.’ That paints a more vivid picture.”
Avoid lists. Tell stories
I like surfing, reading, swimming, jogging, and cooking. “Bzzz—dull!” says Robinson. “Put yourself into a potential date's shoes on this one. If you saw a list like this on a cute girl’s profile, how would you possibly respond? ‘I also like surfing. What’s your favorite thing about surfing?’ Blech—that conversation is a total wipeout.” A better alternative, she explains, is telling stories. “ ‘Last summer, I went surfing at the Jersey Shore nearly every day with my dog Rufus. It was a fascinating anthropological experiment. Buy me a beer, and I’ll tell you more.’ Something like that gives a date plenty to want to talk to you about—plus you sound like an active, interesting person, not just a list of gerunds.”
Don’t stretch the truth, even on minor details. “Let’s say you're five-foot-ten, but you decide you’ll seem hotter if you say you’re six-foot-one,” Robinson says. “It may be a superficial detail, but if/when your date notices you fudged the numbers, she’ll wonder what else you sugarcoated. It’s not about the inch or two; it’s a sense that you’re insecure enough to be lying. You shoot yourself in the foot immediately.”

Don’t be one of these people. Any hint of sad trombone will send quality dates running.”
Choose photos strategically
Give a critical eye to the potential profile shots, and think about the message they’re sending. These pix dictate how potential dates view you, so be proactive and decide what image you want to project. “If you’re looking for a solid, long-term relationship-type, avoid pictures of yourself drinking excessively or making kissy faces at the camera,” Robinson says. “If you’re just looking for a fling, skip the photos from the church bake-off and beef it up appropriately.” Extra points for artsy/humorous/evocative shots. Subtract major points for fuzzy/out of focus/mug shot/creepy head chopped in half, and even more for those that feature dirty laundry in the background, or ex-girlfriends not so cleverly cropped out of the frame.
Ask for help
Even taking all the aforementioned steps, Robinson notes that capturing the cute, pithy individual you are can be a daunting prospect. “If you aren’t sure how your profile looks/reads, ask a friend to proof it,” she suggests. “They can catch any potentially off-putting, Charlie-Brown-sulking statements, as well as good-naturedly make fun of you for any weird phrasing or half-truths. A good friend will help you punch up your profile, give you an outside perspective, and probably be more truthful than you’d actually want them to be—which can be a good thing.”WITHLOVEFAY.COM was started in November 2008 by Fay Hokulani ‐ the now 24 year‐old model, host, radio personality, & fitness enthusiast.

ost of my life I have been extremely interested in what we can do to make ourselves as healthy as possible. We cannot change our genetics, but I figure there is a great deal that is within our control that can have an impact on whether we live a life filled with health and vitality, or whether we suffer with pain and disease.
I was the top graduating student at the University of Toronto in Physical and Health Education in 1992, where I studied anatomy, physiology, exercise physiology, nutrition and how exercise can improve health. I was the fitness director of a Toronto health club, before starting my own personal training business.
Then I moved to Vancouver, B.C., and started my personal training business again. I became frustrated by my inability to help my clients with all of their various aches and pains, and pursued further education through the CHEK Institute in San Diego. I learned an incredible amount, and became far more effective with my clients suffering from low back pain, but still found many clients that did not respond as I felt they should. I took more courses, learning more and more about physical rehabilitation. My skills improved. But even so, some of my clients were not responding and I didn't understand why.
Because there is nothing I love more than learning about the human body, I decided to take my CHEK Level 3 course, where Paul Chek made it obvious to me that there is a lot more to orthopeadic problems than simply looking at the physical. It is not my responsibility to "heal" my clients - I am the coach, and they will heal themselves if they are ready.
I began to read and read and read. I began to have a much better appreciation of how nutrition and other lifestyle factors can have a huge impact on healing or the lack of healing. What we eat today turns into our cells tomorrow, so it is vital that the raw material is of good quality, and something that the body recognizes as food.
I went back to the CHEK Institute, and took the Nutrition and Lifestyle Consultation course, and that course solidified what I had been learning. Disease is a function of bodily systems being out of balance, and when we do what is necessary to bring the body back into balance our health is restored. This can be done by thinking right, breathing right, eating healthy food, drinking healthy water, sleeping enough and at the right time, exercising regularly, and avoiding the toxins that make us unhealthy, such as pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, preservatives, colourings, flavourings, etc. that are in our food, the drugs which our livers must detoxify, and the chemicals in our environment.
My hope is that through this site and the free weekly e-zine, you can travel the wellness journey with me, and prevent illness, or if you are ill, you can learn some ways to become well again. Mostly, wellness is about choices - make poor choices and over time the result is illness. Make good choices, and over time the result is vibrant health. Often good choices don't take any more time than poor choices - it is simply knowing what to choose.
You might be asking yourself why in the world you should trust my suggestions. Very good question. Don't. Don't believe a word I say. I will provide resources - look it up yourself. I am studying health and wellness and truly believe what I suggest to be accurate. As Paul Chek says, does it make sense to study someone that is sick in order to learn how to be healthy? No. One actually needs to study those that are healthy. I do not think it is reasonable to believe food studies that are put out by food companies, nor drug studies that are put out by drug companies. I feel more comfortable believing the experts that study fats for example, and are not funded by people that can profit by the research. You might be surprised at how different the world looks through those eyes.
The other component that is inextricably linked to our health and wellness is the health and wellness of our planet. As the lakes, rivers, oceans become polluted, the forests get chopped down, the air becomes difficult to breathe, and the soil becomes sterile, we will have a harder and harder time recovering our health. As individuals, we need to speak with our dollars and support environmentally friendly ways of doing things so that we can preserve our planet and all life.
Your health is your responsibility, and there is so much you can do to improve your vitality. The goal of this site is to help you on your wellness journey. Enjoy it!
