Guide to Dating Site Profile Pictures
Online dating profile pictures should at least follow these basic guidelines if you want to get the most of your online dating. The types of pictures should be present in your profile – a face shot, a body shot, and another photo for variety. With these photos one can easily determine if he/she is attracted to your or not.
You should also put photos where you are in different situations and environments. Let people see who you really are. Don’t deceive them with a nice picture of your pretty or handsome face when you know that your body could use some gym time. This is because, sooner or later, the person will actually see what you look like. So don’t waste your time or somebody else’s.
Don’t post old photographs for your profile picture. If there is anything different about you from your last photograph, then be sure to update it to what you look like now. There is nothing worse than going on a date and the person is not the same as the one on the photograph.
Don’t put a picture with your kids on it. Let him/her know about your kids later on, but for now, let the other know you first. Be cautious and protect your kids as much as possible from potential danger. Remember that not everyone online are sane.
Don’t also post your pictures with your friends for your profile picture. It will be difficult for them to know who among the group you are. The other person might get interested in another person in the picture who looks better than you. Don’t allow yourself to end up being the one to give information about your other friends in the photo.
A dark or unclear picture should not be used as profile pic. If people cannot see your face, then they would lose interest. You are just wasting your time and other people’s time. Put a better profile picture.
Put a headshot profile picture. Make sure you get you pic close to the camera. In online dating sites, seeing the face is very important. It is not good to have pictures where you are far away from the camera. One good facial shot is important. Your face should be clearly seen in the picture.
Don’t wear sunglasses for your profile picture. Don’t hide your face with the sunglasses. You may look cool but people want to see your face.
Never ever put fake pictures in your profile. IF you want to meet people then better be real. People don’t fall in love just with personality but with both visual and personality.
The first thing that people check out in online dating sites is if they are attracted to you. When people are attracted to someone, they might not even read the profile. If you follow the tips above then you have removed a major hurdle for someone trying to get to know you.
