Put your best foot forward and drag the other behind.

I probably have 5 years of online dating experience, so there was a lot of time to tweak the profile to make it interesting, funny, and honest. A dating profile is just the resume to get the interview. Dating will slowly introduce the character flaws or other areas of incompatibility.

Really though, I view it as a numbers game; a process of getting the most exposure as possible while refining techniques to quickly eliminate bad matches. I set no geographic limitations on who I was willing to meet, but lucked out and found my hot wife just 20 min away.
