How to Copy & Paste Into an Online Dating Profile

Online dating is a great way to meet someone new without even leaving your own home.
You can do it any time of day, and all you need is a computer and Internet connection to participate. In this digital age, many relationships begin online. The first step is to make an online dating profile with the dating website of your choice.

Open a new document in a word processing application like Word, Works, Wordpad or Notepad.
Begin writing information about yourself on the new document page, including things that you like to do, what you do for a living and anything else you think a potential dater should know about you.
Highlight the information you have just written by clicking the button on the left side of your mouse and running your cursor over the material.
While this information is still highlighted, click the button on the right side of your mouse and select "Copy" from the menu that pops up. You can also use your keyboard to copy your highlighted information by pressing the "Ctrl" and "C" keys at the same time.
Open up your online dating profile and click your curser in the box where you want the information to go.
Click the button on the right side of your mouse again, selecting "Paste" this time from the menu that pops up.
You can also use your keyboard to perform this step by pressing the "Ctrl" and "V" keys at the same time.
Reread your information to ensure that it is formatted and worded the way you want.
If it is, save it into your profile by pressing the "Save" button on the profile page.
