Wondering if that profile you’ve got on Match.com, Yahoo.com or whatever online dating site you use, is doing the trick? Feel like it attracts the wrong people? Or, worse yet, nobody at all? Worried you’ll spend another Valentine’s Day alone?
Jill Sherer Murray, 42, who, until last year, was Jill Sherer, gives seasoned tips on how to create an online dating profile that works (and one that doesn’t) at a Thursday, February 8, workshop at the Writer’s Corner in Doylestown. Following are some of the features of the workshop:
— Learn how to write or refine your profile so it better attracts the right people (and maybe even “the one”).
— Start a new profile or workshop the one you’ve already got posted.
— Identify ways to enjoy the process of online dating (instead of likening it to a root canal).
— Mingle with other singles in the same position you are. (Who knows, maybe after the evening, you won’t even need to draft your profile.)
— Learn how to refine your presentation and meet new people simultaneously.
Sherer Murray is an award-winning journalist, whose work has appeared in a variety of business and health-related media. In addition to writing feature articles, scripts, books and other marketing, corporate and creative communications for more than 18 years, she designs and facilitates corporate communication workshops and seminars for such clients as Gatorade, PepsiCo, Tellerx, and Quaker Oats.
A former “Weight Loss Diary” columnist for Shape Magazine, she took 6 million readers (who now know how much she weighs) on her journey to get fit each month through a series of personal essays and live chats.
Sherer Murray is currently working on her second novel and “rewriting her first—again—so she can get it to her agent before he dies or retires.” You can read about her writing and other pursuits (i.e., dating and marriage) in her blog, “Diary of a Writer in Mid-Life Crisis.” which is featured on the Wild River Review. She lives in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, with, she says, “her husband Dan, her rescue dog Winnie, too many houseguests, and a lot of chocolate and over-the-counter pain medication.”
