One of the biggest factors that leads to online dating success is the profile pictures. Uploading bad photos may result in other members feeling reluctant to connect with you, even if your written profile is a perfect match to theirs. Potential matches want to have a better look at who you are and your life and this is done best through pictures.
Since your profile pictures say a lot about you as a person and not just how you look, you have to choose the best pictures to upload. Here’s how you can make a standout online dating profile with the help photos:
Post more than one photo. Let the pictures tell a story so that potential matches will get to know who you are through the photos. Having 4 vertical photos will increase communication and connection drastically. Try to have photos that show your interests and favorite activities to give the one who views them a better idea of who you are. Most of all, always upload recent pictures where you are smiling.
Forget about posting a group image because online dating members don’t want to take extra time to spot you from the group. Another big mistake is posting pictures with sunglasses on, people prefer to see your eyes because hiding under sunglasses looks as if you are hiding something sinister.
Bathroom selfies should also be kept away from your profile because the lighting is terrible and no one wants to see a bathroom as your background. Party pics, provocative images, or pictures where other people are blurred out should never be included in your profile as well.
Remember, these photos are the first impression of who you are as a person, always have your best foot forward or you’ll find yourself without a match, or worse get messages from people you don’t want to meet at all!
