Odyssey Template: Create A Dating Profile For A Single Friend Worth *Swooning* Over

Warning: prepare for DMs.


I don't know who needs to hear this but your relationship status does not define who you are or your self-worth. That said, it can certainly make for some entertaining content because who doesn't love laughing at a hilarious dating profile? (We sure love it, sorry not sorry).

Whether you are single or you have a single friend, we want you to create an Odyssey dating profile worth *swooning* over. Think: one so good it's worthy of a screenshot to be sent to friends in your group chat.

How To:

Here's where you come in! We want you and/or your friend(s) to create your very own "dating profile" on Odyssey using the template we created below. Remember: don't take it too seriously! Have fun with it, put your personality into it, and most importantly, if you're making one for someone else, get their permission first. Then, follow these steps:

  1. COPY the text in between the begin and end template sections below
  2. PASTE it into a new post in Odyssey's CORE
  3. Fill it all in and add photos
  4. Submit under Community: Relationships for a chance to be featured on Swoon
  5. Don't have an account? CREATE ONE.
If you submit your Odyssey dating profile by February 13, you could be featured on Swoon on Valentine's Day!

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever.
