Photo dating sights
For the ladies, Ok Cupid says the best thing you could do is make a flirty face while looking into the camera.For men, it’s looking away from the camera and smiling (because it creates an air of mystery).People are going to pass on you for their own reasons, but don’t give them any extra ammo.You want every single photo to be sharp, tight, and clean.We all know variety is commonly known as the spice of life, and the same goes for your online dating photos.We recommend you post a handful of photos or so, and select photos of you in different poses and engaged in different activities.In their experience, the experts recommend wearing dark blue or black (particularly a dress shirt) and avoid loud patterns (sorry, Hawaiian shirt). You should take that same consideration with your dating profile.If you were putting your résumé that included a photo online, like on Linked In, it probably wouldn’t be blurry, right? As we’ve said, uploading photos like this will make it seem as if you don’t care, which we’re sure is not the case.
In terms of actual numbers, e Harmony likes at least four photos, and Match likes staying below 12, which seems like overkill to us as well.
Photos that are more than five years old shouldn’t be anywhere near your profile — unless you have magical powers like Reese Witherspoon or Jared Leto and never age.
We imagine you’d be pretty pissed if your date showed up looking completely different than how he or she portrayed themselves online, so don’t do that to someone else.
Another study of Match’s reports that one-third of women describe shirtless selfies as “downright offensive” and “an almost instant dealbreaker.” Plus, more than one-fifth hate mirror selfies taken with a smartphone. Also from results highlighted in that e Harmony article, women are most drawn to men who show pride and are least drawn to men who show happiness — while men are most drawn to women who show happiness and least drawn to women who show pride.
The study described pride as “head tilted up, expanded chest, and arms raised above head in fists” and happiness as “smiling broadly.” Normally, we tell readers to stay away from group pics because they make it harder for people to determine which one is you (it would suck to have someone become attracted to your friend).
