To help you with your online dating portfolio, try the following exercise to find out what kind of a person you are. The results aren’t absolutely foolproof but they’ll certainly be interesting.
Think about the following animals. Don’t consider physical attributes but think of traits or characteristics that you like. Which of the following animals do you identify with most?
A shark A rabbit A bear A hen A dog A cat
If you chose a shark, you’re generally aggressive with little time for others who are not up to your standards. You won’t think twice about slicing through anyone who stands in your way and you have a very clear idea about what you want—and how to get it.
If you chose a rabbit, you’re generally sweet tempered but timid. You bend very easily. You like to stay clear from the limelight and don’t interfere much in the affairs of others.
If you chose the bear, you’re a warm person by nature but not very sure if others like you. Hence you might go out of your way to win friends and love by reassuring others.
If you chose the hen, then you’re one of those people who constantly fuss about minor details. You keep your eyes open to everything and are very dependable, but sometimes you end up poking your nose into things that don’t concern you.
If you chose the dog, you’re a happy-go-lucky person. You’re more than willing to help others. But if you’re not careful, you could get taken for a ride. You don’t bother about trivialities but when you lose your head, it’s really gone.
If you chose the cat, you live in a world of your own. You don’t mess with others and don’t like others messing with you. You’re very much the modern apartment creature who knows all the manners but uses them only to be civil.
So which did you choose? These descriptions are just general guidelines but they should give you some ideas. Before you know it, you’ll be finished with your profile. Note: you might want to delete the name of the animal before posting.
Finally, if you don’t take anything else from this article, please take this: God created you special. There’s only one of you in the whole world, and there will never be anyone like you ever again. You’re fearfully and wonderfully made, so remarkable in many ways.
Pray that God reveals your inner beauty to your own eyes. Ask him to help you look inside and see what those qualities are. Before you know it, you’ll be developing a profile that’ll have Christian singles lined up for miles to talk with you!
