Are you looking for a dating profile coach? Maybe you're on Tinder, Bumble, Coffee Meets Bagel, Hinge, or any other popular dating app—but you're not getting the matches and dates you want.
You're right—a coach for your dating profile will definitely boost your chances of finding love or at least of filling your schedule with great first dates. But how do you know if a coach has what it takes to help you?
That's what this article will help you find out. You're about to learn:
Ready? Let's start with the basics:
A profile coach is a special type of dating coach. Instead of or in addition to the usual dating coach services, you can expect them to closely examine the dating apps you use, your profiles on those sites, and your dating goals.
From there, these dating coaches can uncover the reasons behind your lack of success on your chosen dating platforms. They will then guide you through the necessary steps to spruce up your dating profiles and finally start getting the results you want.
All dating coaches aim to help you find the kind of success you want in the dating world. Here are the particular dating services that profile coaches offer to achieve that end:
Your coach will analyze each online dating site you're on (or wish to use). They'll then find out what works on those sites and proceed to optimize your dating profiles for success.
Some online dating coaches know how to write attention-grabbing profiles that attract potential matches and messages, so be sure to ask about this service.
The most significant chunk of your online dating success will depend on the quality of your profile photos. Your coach will look at your current photos, point out the good ones to keep and suggest the bad ones to remove.
Some coaches also include professional photoshoots in their online dating coaching services. These are often individual sessions where they take pictures of you in your best, most attractive light.
This one's particularly valuable if you feel you have subpar conversation skills. Your coach will help you craft good first messages and conversation starters, which you can keep in a handy swipe file for when you're feeling stumped.
A good coach will also give you timely dating advice for when you're confused or when they spot you about to make a critical mistake.
Once your matches and messages start coming in, your coach will help you schedule dates. They'll give you advice on the best first date tips, including what to wear, where to take her, date ideas, and what to talk about.
Naturally, they'll want to hear from you about how your dates go and see if any new problems crop up. And when any do, your coach will also be ready to help you on that front.
As you go through one first date after another, you may encounter some annoying problems like:
Luckily, most coaches will monitor your performance in the dating scene. They'll help you spot the mistakes you're making and give you the strategies to overcome them as you move forward.
Most online dating coaching costs between $50 to $300 per hour when you work with your coach on an hourly basis. Some of the most in-demand coaches today can ask for many times that amount.
If you're on a budget, some coaches offer group sessions, where they simultaneously work with multiple clients, including you (instead of just you). Other coaches have books, programs, courses, and blogs that let you avail of their expertise anytime.
Now that you know what to expect, it's time to find your coach. Here are some ways to make the search go quicker:
Would you prefer working with a coach face-to-face, whether in a group or one-on-one? If so, it's best to work with a coach in your area.
The disadvantage of this approach is that most good coaches have their headquarters in big cities, which may be a problem if you live in smaller outlying towns. Unless you have the resources and means to meet with them regularly, the next option may be better for you:
Many coaches who offer face-to-face coaching also provide their services online. They can meet with you virtually (such as over Zoom), and they may also let you join group sessions and online courses.
