In hindsight, surfyogi might have thrown in a few more "sensitive" photos, pictures of her playing games with cute children or engaging with animals and nature, all firm favourites on the online dating circuit.
It's akin to someone posting excerpts of your diary on Facebook only to hope you at least get some "likes". The South African online dating industry is much smaller than its international counterparts. Most sites operate on a "freemium" basis, making it free for members to sign up and browse profiles until they want to contact and message someone, in which case a paid subscription comes into play.
This varies between R80 and R150 a month depending on how many months you commit to.
It's not as much as the R2 390 that the average online dater spends in the United States every year, but then our numbers don't compare with Europe and the US, where online dating is the norm rather than the exception.
According to Statistic Brain, research provider to publications such as the , a company that provides the technology to over 11 000 dating sites worldwide, says the industry estimates for South Africa sit at about R90-million, in comparison with R2.5-billion for the United Kingdom and R11.1-billion for the US.
' I have to confess, I absolutely love my life. " It's not often you get to quote your online dating profile's personal "narrative".
And why wouldn't I I live in this beautiful city where I get to go for morning walks on the mountain, surf in Muizenberg (when the Cape Doctor isn't making house calls) or just relax in some postcard- perfect spot and read. That's the part where you get 20 to 2 000 words to "sell" yourself, or at least the SABS-approved version you want to put forward.
"The way I see it, Cape Town is a blessing and a curse because you don't need anyone to make you feel alive, happy or fulfilled. It really is an exercise in sales, where miscalculating your value or the market's interest could cost you in receding hairlines and awkward dates.In my case my avatar was "surfyogi", the adventurous free spirit who is "already in love with life but open to new possibilities". Well travelled and adventurous, surfyogi is a thirtysomething girl who knows what she wants – "I like a passionate, adventurous man who has a great sense of humour" – but keeps herself open to new possibilities – "I am not sure I have an ideal man.The men in my life keep on surprising and challenging me, and I like to keep it that way." Creating a profile And just in case she gets pigeonholed as a jock looking for her iron man, she throws in a piece of prose to hopefully capture a few creative souls."I hope to make you laugh, to inspire you to be more courageous and adventurous, to live life fearlessly and freely and to never stop asking why? And in return I hope you do the same for me." On any given day surfyogi could have been "culture vulture" or "creative guru".It's hard choosing just one angle for your entire life story. The best profile photographs always cover the basics – sexy, sporty and slightly mysterious.Surfing photos show physical ability and put you in a bikini, in Europe or at least Durban (this also shows you travel).
