Not only does a photo of you posing in front of a cloudy mirror send the message that you’re a lonely soul incapable of getting a friend to take a few decent photos of you, it also says you don’t own any Windex. However, what is shameful is posting super old photos in an attempt to get more dates.It’s a disservice to yourself because when we meet you in person, trust me — people can tell.Sure, you might have a witty opener or a default photo that would charm any woman between 18 and 80, but it takes only one slip in judgement before your profile is sitting in the reject pile. Avoid wearing hats in pictures because it may translate to "I'm bald" or "I'm hiding something." Even if there is nothing wrong with your head, tapping through seven photos of you in seven different hats will leave a lady slightly suspicious.Since the launch of in 1995, the culture of online dating has come a long way and both sexes have become savvy (read: wary) at scoping out online creepers. Rather than being a great way to showcase your humor and creativity, a photo of you in last year's Halloween costume can come across as immature and weird. And while we're at it, please, no pictures involving creepy black ski masks unless they're action shots taken on an actual mountain. This isn't brain surgery, and it's definitely not the rodeo. If you recognize yourself in some of them, I think it might be worth taking the time to keep on reading my profile. I thought I would throw some keywords that would describe what I like to do.Reason being, the “here I am holding up my i Phone in the mirror”—especially when we can see the phone—is, well, extraordinarily lame, no matter how you slice it. Do what you can with lighting etc to create a more flattering shot (tip: shooting up at yourself with your camera isn’t going to be your best angle). The picture should be you now, not you ten years or ten pounds ago. When else would you ever have cause to only ask a disembodied face out on a date? So having some shots of you where we can at least see what the head is attached to is a good idea. I’m not going to be holding a conversation with your abs. I’d love to see some full-body shots, sure, but preferably clothed and in a normal context (you on a beach or whatever), not you doing your best impression of a centerfold. I thought, what on earth gave this woman the idea that this would help her situation? There are plenty of places online to view naked people. Dudes, no one wants to see random naked body parts. Like any dog owner knows, it’s a nice way to break the ice. Or worse: a picture of you with your arms wrapped around some blonde whose FACE YOU HAVE DIGITALLY SMUDGED OUT. And rather than less authentic, I find professional shots MORE authentic—because a professional can capture you at your best, at your most natural.
So let’s go over the do’s and don’ts of online profile pictures, shall we? A self portrait is ok, but not ideal and at best should be flanked by pictures someone else takes of you. I don’t see the benefit in doing any of these things. But we’ll cover profile responses another time.) DO: Show your whole body. Again: It’s important to get an idea of what you look like, below the neck as well. As soon as I see a headless torso online, especially as a main profile shot, I hit delete. OK, if you’re an avid dog lover and owner, and want to include the pooch in a photo, fine. But while it may have been a great shot of you, it’s now spoiled by either the gorgeous woman (or hunky dude) you’re with. Just because you can take a picture at any moment of the day doesn’t mean they’re going to be all that great.) – TV (even if I like one or two shows and some movies) – Excessive work out / complete body addiction – Superficial people (but same problem as #2…) In addition, if you happen to pronounce the following sentences regularly, we’re definitely increasing the chance of a good match here: “Ok let’s give it a try” “To be honest, I don’t know” “I respect that” “J’adore les escargots” ok this one doesn’t really count either…🙂 And last (I promise), if you think that Paris is the most beautiful city in the world, I think you should tell our parents to get ready for the wedding 🙂 I am crazy, stupid, and charming. so let’s start: I’d like first to apologize for the typos I might have… nobody’s perfect) and I’m pretty much new in this country (I’ve been around for 2 years).I will never know anyway 🙂 Travel, surprises, music, dancing, sports, books, last minute plans, open mind, photography, museum, craziness, spontaneity, going out (but also staying in), sharing, simplicity, respect, flip flops (yes, the sandals), down to earth (however fantasy is also very important), people, casual, word, news, work, sense of humor about yourself, awareness.The messages were all nice, although one user messaged me three times.
