Neil de Grasse Tyson I joined Twitter and you read a lot of the comments.You're biting your lip and you want to reply but you know a headline will be made from it and you don't want to give people the satisfaction.The “It Ain’t Easy Bein’ Sleazy” Headline Please don’t include the phrase “DTF” (or any of its variants) anywhere in your online dating profile.(Yes, we’ve seen it, we just wish we hadn’t.)Your headline isn’t the place to advertise that you’re only in the market for a friend with benefits. If you’re not looking for something serious, that’s fine.You may well be “Ready to Try One Last Time” (ouch) “Looking for someone to love me” (yikes) or “Back on here… You may hate being single, but your online dating profile is not the place to advertise how depressed you are over this state of affairs.A better place to do that is on Facebook 😉The Die-Hard Romantic Headline You may think that women will be swayed by your romanticism.Nikola Tesla People get up, they go to work, they have their lives, but you'll never see the headlines say, ' Six billion people got along rather well today.' You'll have the headline about the 30 people who shot each other.John Malkovich I guess the headline is that you mustn't tough it out assuming it's 'normal' to feel incredible pain when you're preggo or post-partum, or be afraid to try a new specialist or a new kind of specialist if you have pain that isn't getting any better.
If you’re not totally boring (and we’re guessing you aren’t), you want something more interesting than just some variant of “hello,” but you aren’t sure how to distill your entire personality into one phrase or sentence. That should be the headline: If you're insecure, don't call. I'll give you options, and it's up to you to select or throw 'em away.Russell Crowe When I got married, the Sun ran the headline: ' Here comes the bride, all fat and wide.' Luckily, it was a few days after the wedding - but it was still hideous to read at a great romantic moment.Jo Brand The newspapers of the twenty-first century will give a mere 'stick' in the back pages to accounts of crime or political controversies, but will headline on the front pages the proclamation of a new scientific hypothesis.Here’s what search results look like on Millionaire Match: See how that headline is the first thing you see?It’s the same on POF: Now we’re not going to make any snarky comment about these headlines (but seriously, they’re awful, don’t use them).Zoe Foster Blake When you are thrown onto the stage at 17 in such an enormous way, it becomes living on the edge because every step you take, every word you speak, every action you do becomes headline news. Boris Becker When you put money directly to a problem, it makes a good headline. You get to claim that you've engaged in these activities within an election cycle.But certain investments take longer than an election cycle.The Hey/Hi/Hello Headline Don’t use some form of greeting. You might as well have said “I’m on here because I want to meet women” or “Single and Ready to Mingle.”Use this rule of thumb: if it’s been printed on a mass-produced t-shirt, you might want to avoid it.The Most Special Snowflake Headline It’s great that you’re a vegan, a Jehovah’s Witness, a Cross Fit enthusiast, and a CEO who only dates models.
