-You have to catch people's attention immediately; this will be the first thing they read!
-Be funny! This is important. You can't just make fart noises with your hands like you usually do. Especially because on the internet, you don't have hands.
-Don't confuse people about your hands or lack thereof.
-You don't have to tell people that you're smart. That sounds arrogant. The fact that you used "you're" instead of "your" automatically puts you ahead of most folks on the internet.
-Should I mention that I actually like scented candles and home decor? Better not...
-You should probably make a list of shallow things that are still important. For example:
-You are 100% debt free/financially comfortable/fiscally independent
-Your profession is Being Awesome at Teaching English (at what is largely considered the best school in South West Florida, no less)
-You keep a clean living quarters
-You have a truck that's completely paid for
-You've never been engaged or married.
-Consider pointing people to wikipedia articles on ENFJs for a pretty accurate description of your personality.
-Insert a quote by your favorite author and hope it resonates with somebody:
“Thomas Edison's last words were 'It's very beautiful over there'. I don't know where there is, but I believe it's somewhere, and I hope it's beautiful.” -John Green
-Remember to go back and actually write a self-description so that people don't think this notes thing was just a gimmick to get their attention.
I'm really good at being courageous.
A year ago, I was required to take a test through work that was intended to enlighten us about our greatest gifts. We jokingly called these gifts our superpowers. According to the results, my number one gift was "an acute ability to see beauty in situations." I was frustrated and thought I had the lamest superpower of all my coworkers; then, I thought about how awesome it is. I guess I saw the beauty in it.
