I was reading a study about internet dating profiles and how people portray themselves as their ideal self. I got to thinking about this and wondered if this was true for most people? The hypothesis went like this – people tend to write their dating profile as the person they want to be as opposed to who they actually are.
My thoughts? I think that may be true for a lot of us. After all we all need to visualise our ideal self so that we can continue to aspire, learn, grow – life is a journey after all. But there may also be some people who are shy about stating their gifts and talents. Or others who make things up to impress. There are no hard and fast rules here except one. If you like internet dating – be kind to yourself and remember that you have a duty to put your true best self out there so the right people can find you!
