How to write a Personals ad

You wont get a reply if you don't try!
I’ve seen quite a few Personal adz that I’m sure wont ever get a reply, because they just don’t put enough effort into it. No one is going to reply to an ad with one line of text and no photo unless they have been rejected by all the good well written adz.
Add a photo to your ad.
As the saying goes, “A picture is worth 1000 words”, so if you have a photo of yourself, use it! You are more than 10 times more likely to get a reply if your ad includes a photo of yourself. It will also save the heartache and time of meeting someone who is superficial and doesn’t like the way you look too.
If you are shy or have some other reason for not posting a photo then you should give a description of what you look like. Things to mention are: Ethnicity, height, hair colour, body type (slim, athletic, slightly over weight etc).
How do you spend your spare time?
Mention what you like to do in your spare time and be honest about it too. Don’t say you like going out dancing on the weekends when you would much rather be at home watching TV or surfing the Internet. Liars always get caught in the end and you risk looking like a fool.
What are you looking for?
Put down what you seek in a partner. Do you want your partner to be tall? Short? Thin? Cuddly? Should your partner have the same interests as you? Do you want them to be rich? Average? Just put down what you are looking for and it’ll save your time and other peoples time and you never know, you might meet your dream partner here on OzAdz :-)
Never judge a book by its cover
You could meet a person with a great photo who looks even better in real life, but once you talk to them and get to know them, they could say things that will make you never want to see their pretty face again!
You could also meet someone who doesn’t look that great, but they could have a great personally and make you a very happy person!
