It has been said that women are better at seeing the subtleties and acting on them much swifter than men. I don’t know if that’s the case or not. I’m not a scientist and I never took human ecology as an elective. What I do know is that more often than not, you’ll have a woman become more selective to thwart a suitor and those actions aren’t as prevalent for men. Does that mean that men are stuck making rash decisions? Goodness no! Men just have to tap into that side of themselves: the side that acts pre-emptively instead of the side that’s governed another way. Think about it: if you’re the type of man who sees things that other men look past, you’ll be the one who comments on a woman’s colour scheme, how well her nails are done, or if she’s done something to her hair while the other tread is slurring about “hey baby, you look HOT”. Fail.

In the beginning of a relationship you want to make a good impression! It’s akin to a job interview...you don’t show up in sweats and a crumpled resume right? When you start dating you want to ensure that she sees you in the best light first. You want consistency from all sources on your character just like your references for a job! So why the heck are you ruining your chances by letting your Facebook profile bring your stats way down?
I want to take this opportunity to give you a pre-dating gift: a gift of knowledge, a gift of insight, a gift of a Facebook profile make-over! Whether you think you need one or not, read on and you may discover that you’re sending all the wrong messages to the potential female ninja in your life.
1) Your Profile Picture
YES THIS MATTERS!!!! Putting a picture of you drunk with a bunch of chicks surrounding you in Vegas does not (I repeat DOES NOT) give the impression that you are amazing and women from far-away lands should all flock to you. On the contrary, it sends the message that women should STAY AWAY because you are a drunken, slimeball who would be willing to “tip” hefty amounts to have gorgeous women stand next to you! GROSS!!
Put up a picture of you in a good light, doing something fun, or active. Make sure you are smiling in your picture or (even better) laughing! Women love a guy who can have fun and doesn’t seem too serious or judgemental. A photo of you having an authentic good time, will subconsciously let women know you are fun and someone they should want to spend time with!
On the other end of the spectrum, don’t post a picture of you with your Mom or Auntie knitting. You will be seen as a Mama’s boy and who wants to worry about having to meet a guy’s Mom at the beginning of a friendship or relationship? I’ll tell you who....not Lady Ninja that’s for sure!
2) Your Status Update
Now admittedly I think women are worse at putting TMI on the old Status update (no one wants to know that you are sad that your cat threw up....BLEHG!!), but guys often go to the other end of the spectrum and don’t update it EVER!!
COME ON BOYS....tell us what the hell you’re doing all day!!!
Communication is key in all relationships and having no updates on your Facebook profile doesn’t allow women to see the real you! Once in a while it’s great to see that you are doing something exciting enough to share with the world...otherwise we assume you’re just playing video games in your parents’ basement with other non-social nerds!! Booooooring!
3) Your Wall
Oooh this is a big one!!! Women like to see what your friends, acquaintances and family are saying about you. It gives us a better sense of your character and what lies beneath the surface.
If your wall is inundated with comments about “how wasted you were when you fell down the stairs last night”, or “how funny it was when you pulled down your pants and rocked out with your cock out at the wedding last week”.....you seem more like a character from Jackass than a potential relationship candidate.
Clean it up!! It’s great if you have waaaaay too much fun once in a while, hey who hasn’t!?!? But read, reply and delete!! There’s no reason everyone has to see the ridiculous stuff you’re up to when inebriated! It seems more like you are bragging about being a DOCHEBAG if you keep those comments! Keep that for the inner circle so you don’t scare off any wonderful female potentials with a total jackass party reputation.
In conclusion, a Facebook Profile is not the be all, end all of a relationship, but if it can help give you a boost then why not skim down your SLIME BUCKET quota and increase your HANDSOME DEVIL WITH A GREAT ATTITUDE stock?!!?
In the end your profile reflects you so make sure your first impression isn’t sending women running in the opposite direction!! I stand behind my Facebook make-over, but if you can prove me wrong I want to hear it! Seriously....has a photo of you passed out on a lawn chair ever gotten you a date? Comment away and I’ll be sure to read and respond!!!!
Lady Ninja over and out! Gotta go change my Facebook status....
