You need to be you in your online dating profile, but the process of creating one is a good time to think about what kindergarten teachers call “being your best self at school.” If you’re attracted to Type-A go-getter types who get up at 6am to exercise, emphasize your similar love of hard work. If you like low-key creative types, share what it is you make. Do you get off on witty banter? Then your profile should be clever. Want someone who shares your taste for obscure French films? Reference one of them and see who bites. No, not everyone wants to date a carbon copy of themselves, but most of us want to be with someone with some overlapping interests. Put forward the version of yourself that’s most attractive to the person you’re trying to see naked. Online dating is like advertising: Know your ideal audience and target them by positioning yourself to be as appealing as possible. Keep your product’s major flaws out of the commercial.

We all know people who “can’t handle the truth.”  Literally, they shut down or change the topic every time a sensitive subject arises.  Ignoring reality doesn’t have to be the same as maintaining a positive outlook.  It’s possible to acknowledge painful and negative things without making them the focus.  Putting a positive spin on something doesn’t have to mean you’re being fake or just “marketing yourself.”
