The Art of Mastering Pictures
If you want to see results with your online dating, your profile picture should follow some basic guidelines. You need to have at least three photos, the face shot, a body shot, and one other shot for variety. This will make it easy for someone to answer whether he/she is attracted to you or not.
Let people see you in different situations and environments. Let people see who you really are. If you are fat, then you should not limit yourself to pictures of your pretty or handsome face, but tell people the truth about you. This is because, sooner or later, the person will actually see what you look like. So don’t waste somebody else’s time.
Recent photographs are a must. If you have gained a lot of weight since your last photograph, then update your pictures. It will not profit you anything to deceive someone with your photographs because sooner or later the real you will be found out.
Don’t put a picture with your kids on it. Let the other know you before they get to know anything about your kids. 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. How can they know you in a group? And if there is someone who looks better than you, then it’s bad. 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. Who would be interested in someone whose face you cannot see? This is just a waste of time. Put a better profile picture.
If possible, your profile picture should be a headshot. Make sure you get you pic close to the camera. People want to see your face. 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.
It is not cool to have a profile picture with sunglasses on. Don’t hide your face with the sunglasses. You may look cool but people want to see your face.
Putting fake pictures is a no-no. 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. Some people don’t 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.
