Think about the posts that stand out to you when you’re scrolling through Facebook or Twitter.

The posts with the most intriguing headlines are likely the ones you’ll click on and read. When it comes to your dating profile, your headline is likely the first thing someone will read on your profile.

But if you’re one of the millions of guys trying their luck on a dating site or app that requires a headline, then read on. Your dating headline is one of the first things on your profile that sets you apart from the crowd of posers, six-pack-selfy-takers, nimrods, and lowlifes.
