This article is intended to consider the place of narrative in structure of self-presentation of dating site users. The narrative is considered as having complex categorical structure. In human’s personality structure it works like a tool to construct the hierarchy of life-long values. Helping a man to understand his own actions it is at the same time the key to his self-identity. Next, the statistical analysis of categories is provided. The data analysis shows that semantic categories largely reflect both behavioral and biologically conditioned and personal characteristics of dating site users. The preliminary studies conducted on the basis of social networking were considered. The result of such studies revealed the existence of gender and individual differences in vocabulary of Facebook and dating websites users. Thus, the extravert people mostly used the categories which are concerned with their activity (usually in sport), their family relationships or emotional attitudes to someone or something. While the introvert people were more about categories concerned with their negative attitude toward own life position. Besides, it was shown that there was a difference in categories used by the people of different age. While the pupils wrote about school, the students about school and having fun, the adults wrote about work, and the aged people wrote about their families. Also, the studies showed the link between dating progress of men and women and the nicks they employ. At the end, the area for further research was identified.
