Your profile should have a recent flattering photo, and an accurate weight. It should list the best things about you, and feel free to leave out the worst. Do not over share on your profile. If you are unemployed, instead of lying and saying you have your dream job, find a way to word it honestly and flatteringly.

Your date can fall for your looks and personality with no preconceived expectations to bring down the evening. If he/she goes in expecting the okay looking person they met on your profile, and instead meets you looking your very best and sharing your best personality, they will be pleasantly surprised. Imagine instead that they go into the date expecting a ten because of your lies on your profile, everything is a disappointment from there. Under promise on your profile and over deliver in person. It will be a pleasant surprise for your date who is likely used to people who over promise and under deliver.
