8 Tips to Make Your Meetmehalal Profile Stand Out!

Creating an online profile can be a daunting task.  After all, it’s your selling point and one of the biggest factors in your success online. Should you be funny or serious? How much is too much, and how can you create a rounded picture of yourself in just a few words?  Having said that, it’s also a great opportunity to let all the potentials know who you are & why you’re a great catch.  Use your MMH profile to find the RIGHT match, not just any match!  Below we’ve come up with some vital words of advice on the ins and outs of creating the right tone in your profile.

1.  Consider your answers carefully

Your meetmehalal profile gives you the opportunity to talk about yourself.  Whether it’s basic traits about yourself, your interests, hobbies, what you’re looking for, etc.  Use this opportunity to tell people what you’re passionate about, who you are, what you’re looking for, if you like to travel, why not take this opportunity to discuss your favourite destination, or the most amazing things you’ve discovered around the globe? Alternatively, if you’ve said reading is a passion of yours, tell them your favourite novel.   The answers you give will help people connect and want to message you.

2.  Give your profile an intriguing headline

Chances are, the first thing someone will notice is your headline.  It’s eye catchy so be distinctive and help yourself stand out.  This is an excellent opportunity to show your true wit, creativity, and personality. Express yourself; be spontaneous, brave, bold, use your favorite quote or a song lyric. This is your opportunity to be imaginative and convey a key aspect of YOU.

3.  Avoid Cliches

Way too many people write exactly the same things on their profiles. No more “I live life to the fullest,” “I’m drama free,” or “I’m looking for my best friend.” Try and show a little originality. Think of something interesting that could be a conversation starter.  How about, “I make awesome hummus that’ll make your mama proud”….ok so maybe not that, but you get the point!

4.  Upload a Picture

We can’t stress how important this is.  Did you know MMH profiles with photos are up to 10 times more likely to get responses than profiles without photos? Even profiles with privatized pictures get more responses than profiles without pictures.  Here are some quick hints to keep in mind when uploading a picture:

  • Smile: It's well worth it to have someone take a recent photo of you when you're at your happiest and most relaxed. Remember, a picture truly speaks a thousand words.
  • Lighting is important: Don't hide behind dark sunglasses or in a picture that's hard to really see what you look like. People want to see who they’re messaging.
  • Choose action shots: Our stats show that profile photos that demonstrate you being active (i.e. playing your guitar or downhill skiing), even if your face isn’t showing, get more messages.
  • Choose recent photos: This should be a no brainer! If they’re more than a year old, don’t use them. Looking better in the flesh is better than the reverse.

5.  Reach out

Too many women sit back and wait for a guy to initiate communication. If you see someone who looks interesting, send them a Salaam! Many men say they are thrilled when a woman actually reaches out first.

6.  Have patience

Finding a great partner takes time. There is no magic formula to this, so adjusting expectations and settling into the journey with a patient mindset will make the process a more positive one. If a match doesn't get back to you immediately, instead of assuming they aren't into you, keep an open mind and have faith that everything will happen as it should.

7.  Look Smart

Poor grammar and spelling mistakes within your MMH profile can be a major turn-off.  Your entire profile is a first impression.  You wouldn’t allow spelling mistakes on your resume, so why allow them on your profile when looking for your Muslim match! Pay attention to incomplete or run-on sentences too!

8.  Pickiness can be too limiting

When detailing what you want, be careful not to get too specific. When you get into height, weight, and other "vital stat" requirements, try not to limit yourself and be as open as you can.  Does a guy really need to be 4 inches taller than you? Why does that matter so much? Are there other areas you could compromise on a bit? There is no such thing as a perfect person – so getting realistic about what you are looking for (and what is out there!) will help open the door to more potential partners. Rethink your must haves and can’t stands and you may be amazed at what truly makes you happy.


Follow the above rules and iA, you’re sure to see an improvement in your profile response rates.  Remember, you get out what you put in, help yourself to use MMH to find the RIGHT match, not just any match.

    If you are clicking on a profile because you like the pic, then please allow the person to also make that informed decision. It's only fair. Let's face it, most people are visually motivated and many people will read the profile if there is an attraction. No one likes to reject someone after receiving a pic, so save urself the heartache and put it out there!
