About This Quiz

Even for those with lots of experience, creating a dating profile can be confusing and at times even a bit terrifying.  If you have ever been a part of the world of online dating, then you know just how important your profile is, and you also know how hard it is to do one right. 

What are you really trying to do when it comes to meeting someone online?  The words you choose matter. You don't want to sound conceited, but you also don't want to look desperate. You are not only trying to find someone who is interested in what you have to say on your profile, but you also want that person to be still interested in you if you meet. 

If you are looking for someone for a quick hook up, then you don't want to meet someone that has a longterm relationship on their mind, and if you are trying to find the love of your life, you don't want to meet someone who is just looking for a fling.

In fact, how you put together your dating profile clues a lot of people into whether or not you are looking for true love and also if you are ready for it. So what do you think? Are you ready for wedding bells, or just into having fun? Take this quiz to find out.
