Create the perfect profile online.

Sikh dating can seem daunting to many and very exciting for others, with the risk of heartbreak and the possibility of rejection just a swipe away or having overly high expectations from other members.

Here are some tips for creating the best online profile to meet your perfect Sikh soul mate.

Know what you're looking for

Whether you're taking Sikh dating online proactively or are a bit more laid-back, it's a good idea to work out what you want from Single Sikhs. Are you after true love and marriage? Do you just want to see where love takes you? Whatever brings you here, let that be the foundation and your guide when preparing your online profile.

Be your Best self !

Being truthful with your profile underlines the foundations of single Sikhs and your Sikh dating profile. It's not only about being truthful with yourself, it's also important to be honest with other people too.

Pick your photos carefully

First impressions count! So don’t forget to smile!

Especially if someone is only glancing at your picture, with so many profiles out there try to stand out. So, having a good first photo is really crucial. A head and shoulders shot of you, preferably taken in natural light,

If you're a happy person, show it!

These are the things people will be looking for! You’ve got to choose a photograph that makes you attractive to the people you are trying to find.

It's a good idea to back up your main picture with a couple more options.

You should choose a picture your friends think you look really good in, even if you hate it.

If you’re laughing, or not looking at the camera, something really natural, that’s the photo where someone who wants to meet you gets a sense of who you are.

They get a hint that you’re not a kind of computer-generated robot.

Your bio is your friend and very important

What you write in your bio is key to letting people know who you are and what you're all about. It can be the springboard for those crucial opening conversations too.

Spend some time writing about the things you love and what sums you up. Have a good think about what to put in and what to leave out. Three paragraphs that roughly outline what you enjoy doing, what stimulates you, maybe a little bit about where you come from and your background.

Start off with a bang! Instead of hiding your usual talents of fascinating experiences, grab peoples attention by giving those details a staring role in your Sikh dating profile

Be Specific! If people have already read this far, they're already intrigued. So use this section to give members a fuller glimpse of who you really are. 

The real you. Stop and really think about what makes you tick, who you are and how you've got where you are today. How do these achievements define you as a person? This is a great exercise to attract your kind of matches . 

Tease a little. Hint a great story instead of "I love Indian food". Try something like "I absolutely love our local Indian restaurant where not only do they serve the best dhaal they also have the strangest live band on Sunday nights which is so much fun!" 

If all else fails, borrow some ideas. It's not easy writing or talking about yourself. one tip that often works is by asking a friend, relative or colleague to describe you. Take note of what they say and translate the comments to your profile.

And remember If you're funny, be funny, and trust that the people who don't find you amusing wouldn't have laughed in real life either. But don't try and stuff your bio with jokes if that's not who you are you.

Don't be afraid of rose-tinting things a smidge either but be sure not to misrepresent yourself, for example if you are really 5ft tall but say you are 5,8”, as it will only cause a lot of awkwardness when you finally meet in the flesh.

Finally don't give up hope

Single Sikhs can be a really fun way to meet like minded people but be aware you will not gel with everyone and there is someone out there for you. Believe always that somewhere in your phone or computer is someone that will make you happy.

None of those people will matter when you’re sitting in a restaurant opposite someone who is your perfect Sikh soul mate. That’s your goal."
