On Saturday, author and editor Dave Eggers helped San Franciscans increase their chances of a lifelong match by editing their online dating profiles at a National Independent Bookstore Day event at Books Inc. Eggers became famous with his 2000 autobiography, "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius," and in 2013 wrote "The Circle," a dystopian novel based loosely on life at Silicon Valley tech companies like Google and Facebook.
Eggers wouldn't let Business Insider sit in on the editing, but we spoke to a few attendees about what Eggers said they should do. One attendee had "Eating and drinking with friends" listed as some of her favorite activities.
The whole book is filled with great insights, suggestions, and caveats for creating a profile (including a rundown of some of the top sites, so you can choose one that seems most likely to work for you), but here are a few to get you thinking—and looking with fresh eyes at your own profile. A string of numbers just causes people’s eyes to glaze over. You’re not a cliché, your profile shouldn’t be either.
You’ve got your sweatpants on, ordered enough Thai for two but only for one, and there’s a bottle of open booze somewhere in the room -- you must be single on Valentine’s Day. And I’m probably doing the exact same thing, with one big difference: instead of crying my way through…er, I mean dry-eyed watching a cheesy romcom, I’ve got my computer open, and I’m working overtime.
And you probably don't want to be sending mixed signals to someone before you even start dating them.
End on a "Zing." If you have a joke, save it to be the last part of the answer so that's what people remember.
Simply put - you need to have a fun, positive profile and great photos to attract the attention of high quality people.
