There’s an abundance of expert dating advice for the long Valentine’s Day weekend to help you find love online beyond February. Whitney Friedlander from the Los Angeles Times wrote an excellent article featuring expert advice on how to write an online dating profile to get the best response.

I provided expert my advice and tips for the article on how to create a successful online profile.

“Keep profiles brief and specific. Leave the novel at home. Long, drawn-out profiles and sob stories don’t belong on an online dating site. Use a catchy screen name. For instance, I use PianoBaby and Paperback Writer. It makes it easy for a man to approach me because they have something to say. Don’t put pictures of you and your pets or children. Don’t post party photos — a picture of a man and his buddy might confuse the person looking at the profile [who would wonder] who the right person is in the photo.”

–Julie Spira, author of CyberDatingExpert.com and the book “The Perils of Cyber-Dating”

The article includes other tips from Match.com, eHarmony, Online Personals Watch, Plenty of Fish, and Spark Networks, owner of JDate.

    Be creative with your profile to stand out from the others. In addition, humor can be a great way to generate a lot of response.
