What Your Online Dating Profile Is Really Saying About You

What Your Online Dating Profile Is Really Saying About You

If you’re look­ing for a sugar daddy, dat­ing sites are always a good option, espe­cially one that’s spe­cially designed to match rich, older men with beau­ti­ful younger women. Sugar daddy dat­ing sites are a great way to meet older men that you may oth­er­wise have never crossed paths with.

But if you’re look­ing for a sugar daddy on dat­ing sites, it helps to know what to look for so that you can weed out the men who will just be a waste of time for you—if you’re look­ing for a seri­ous, long-term rela­tion­ship, you don’t want to bother with a sugar daddy who is just look­ing to have fun with a hot young sugar baby.

Recent research out of the Uni­ver­sity of Texas revealed that what you write on your online dat­ing pro­file says a lot about your rela­tion­ship goals, and there­fore affects the type of men you will attract. Researchers asked a group of sin­gle women to record a dat­ing pro­file video and then fill out a ques­tion­naire ask­ing about their rela­tion­ship goals. They then com­pared the video to the self-reported rela­tion­ship goals.

The results showed that women who focused on talk­ing about themselves—like what their own inter­ests and per­son­al­ity traits were—in their dat­ing pro­file video were only look­ing for a fling. On the other hand, the women who focused more on what they were look­ing for in a poten­tial part­ner ended up being the ones who were inter­ested in a long-term relationship.

The con­nec­tion makes sense. If you’re look­ing for a seri­ous rela­tion­ship through sugar daddy dat­ing, you’re nat­u­rally going to be more selec­tive about who you’re spend­ing your time with, which is why you’re clos­ing in on the par­tic­u­lar char­ac­ter­is­tics that you’re look­ing for in a part­ner. If you’re just look­ing for a sugar daddy for the pur­pose of hook­ing up with a hot, older man and aren’t really inter­ested in estab­lish­ing the foun­da­tion of a last­ing rela­tion­ship, you’re nat­u­rally going to pay more atten­tion to how to best “adver­tise” your assets for a poten­tial “buyer.”

Not only does it help to know what your sugar daddy dat­ing pro­file is say­ing about you, but it also comes in handy when talk­ing to a poten­tial sugar daddy you meet through dat­ing sites. If you’re look­ing for a seri­ous com­mit­ment, pay spe­cial atten­tion to men who talk about what they find attrac­tive in a woman, as opposed to boast­ing about themselves.

If you’re wor­ried about not-so-desirable sugar dad­dies stalk­ing your pro­file on dat­ing sites, look for sites that don’t pub­licly post your pro­file. A con­fi­den­tial sugar daddy dat­ing site like this relies on a per­son­al­ized match­mak­ing for­mula to pair you with a suit­able part­ner, rather than putting you on  pub­lic dis­play for every­one on the Inter­net to see. If you’re inter­ested in try­ing this kind of per­son­al­ized sugar daddy dat­ing ser­vice, com­plete with a back­ground check of every poten­tial sugar daddy, click here to get started.
