If you want to be a successful online dater you need to perfect your relationship elevator pitch. I’m a dating coach and the first thing I ask new clients when they come to me is what their elevator pitch is. Almost all of them tell me that they don’t have one. And that’s one of the biggest mistakes you can make when it comes to online dating.
When you’re looking for a job or trying to secure funding for a new business you need to develop an elevator pitch or a short statement that tells people who you are and what your goals are. And in business often having a great elevator pitch makes the difference between getting that perfect job or finding the funding for your business and not being successful. When it comes to online dating you need to apply the same strategy that you would apply to find a job or finding a backer for your business. You need to sell yourself in a short statement that will convince people that they want to know more about you.
In the online dating world, it can be really difficult to stand out. There are thousands of profiles on those sites and getting noticed can be tough. But if you have a great elevator pitch as your title or as your introduction on your profile it will increase the chances that people who are serious about finding a relationship will want to know more about you and will contact you.
A Great Elevator Pitch For Online Dating
There are a few things that every great dating elevator pitch has to have. The first thing is a strong first statement that describes what sets you apart from other people. And this statement should be as specific as possible. Everyone likes to travel, or read, or listen to music. That is not going to stand out. There is a big difference between a statement that starts with “I like to travel.” and a statement that starts with “Last summer I cashed in all of my PTO to take a two week trip to Bali on a meditation retreat and it changed my life”. The first statement is way too generic. The second one is interesting and will get noticed.
Another thing that your elevator pitch needs to have is a specific statement about what you’re looking for when it comes to dating. Don’t be coy and don’t be wishy-washy when it comes to what you’re looking for. If you want to find a relationship that has marriage potential then you need to say that. Or if you’re just looking to date and have fun you should say that. Make it clear what your intentions are so you can attract other people who want the same thing that you want.
Your dating elevator pitch should also include one thing that makes you unique. It could be a unique talent, an unusual hobby, or a funny anecdote about something that highlights your individuality.
