The 5 Types of Online Dating Headlines that Snag Attention [With 25 Examples]

Did the headline of this article snag your attention?
It’s called a list headline and when it comes to online dating headlines, it’s a top performer!

Here are some interesting statistics:

When browsing profiles, on average, 8 out of 10 girls will read your headline, but only 1 out of 10 will read your entire dating profile.

This is the secret to the power of your headline. The better your headline, the more girls you have checking you out.

Out of the 4 top Online Dating Websites:

• Plenty of Fish
• OkCupid

Only 2 still use traditional headlines:

• Plenty of Fish

But no matter which site you use, there’s always a place for a catchy headline.

Now for the 5 Types of Online Dating Headlines
& 25 Snazzy Examples:


#1: List Online Dating Headline Examples

Any headline that lists a number of reasons, secrets, types, or ways will work because it makes a very specific promise of what’s in store for the girl when she reads your profile.

A nice quantifiable return on attention invested goes a long way toward getting her to check you out, and as long as you deliver with a quality profile, you’ll have a happy girl on your hands.

#2: Curiosity Makes For A Happy Kitty…

Girls are curious by nature, use words to intrigue them, and you may also incorporate ellipsis (That’s the little dots at the end…) to build suspense or even tension. I recommend you use them whenever possible…

#3: Create A Testimonial Dating Headline

A testimonial headline can do two things for you.

First, it presents the girl with a third party endorsement of you. (Even if it’s funny & obviously not true)

Second, it capitalizes on the fact that girls like to know what other people say. PLUS Master copywriter Ted Nicholas found a good headline can perform up to 28% better when framed in quotation marks. So guess what? Bust out the “quotation marks”…

“The Funniest Guy I’ve Ever Met!” Says the News York Times
“It’s The First Dating Profile I’ve Read That Was Actually Original.” Marilyn Monroe

#4: USE ACTION in your Dating Profile Headlines

Always use action words in your headline. It represents energy, movement and excitement. A gal likes a guy with a ♥ heartbeat? Go figure.

Just About To Give Up, Then… BAM!!!…
Jeez!!! I’m not just a sex object!

#5: Funny Headlines for Dating Sites

For goodness sake have a sense of humor. So you’ve been single for awhile and wanting to fall in love. DON’T come off as desperate. See the bright side of things. Falling in love or finding a great catch should be enjoyable. Don’t take anything too personal and enjoy yourself.
