What you should always remember is that your profile photo on mobile dating app or on your online dating profile is super important. This is the first thing that potential dates see and make their decision whether to contact you or not. Good profile photos increase your chances of people approaching you and as a result finding the right person becomes much faster and easier. And not so great profile pictures can just ruin everything for you. I think you won’t argue with the power of the first impression. In real life situations when we have an important meeting or a date, we try to look our best. Because the first impression is vital and to change the perception people have made about us in most cases is impossible. So, I encourage you to treat your dating profile picture very seriously. Your profile photo says everything about you, so better make sure it does you justice.
When you are choosing profile photo to upload on your dating profile the trick is to imagine what kind of pictures you would be attracted to. You would probably expect a clear shot where you can see another person’s face and body. As simple as that, right?! So, before you upload new profile picture to DateMenNow, make sure you keep the following 5 tips in mind. If you’ll follow the below listed suggestions, you will definitely have a profile photo that attracts new and exciting dating prospects.
Good quality pictures. It just goes without explanation, that the quality of your profile picture must be of as good quality as possible. It shows straight away that you are taking this mobile dating experience seriously, that you took time and made an effort. As well as that you respect people who will be looking at your profile. So, you better make sure that the photo is not blurry and that other people can see your face clearly without screwing up their eyes.
Don’t hide your eyes. Wearing sunglasses is not a good idea. When someone is wearing sunglasses on their profile picture, it makes me think that this person is hiding something. The same applies to baseball caps that are worn to hide your eyes. As well as scarves if they are worn over your nose and mouth, to hide half of your face. If you are too shy to show your face, maybe you shouldn’t use mobile dating app at the first place.
Be alone in your picture. Leave group and party photos to your FaceBook wall. Especially, don’t post pictures with your ex or any person of the opposite sex. Posting pictures with your kids is also not a good idea. It is nice that you want to show to your potential date, that you have kids from previous relationships and that you have nothing to hide. But maybe this kind of sharing is a little bit too early.
Ask someone to take a picture of you. Although it is much easier to take your own picture pointing your smartphone at your bathroom mirror. But it is much better when someone is taking a photo of you. Instead of showing everyone the towels on the background, choose a nice location and ask someone to take a few shots of you. This way the quality of your picture will be much better.
Smile. Positive and happy people attract a lot more attention than grumpy ones. So smile and be nice to people who write to you. You never know when your future true love will be writing. Be always ready!
