DON'T Use a photo taken with a flash Research shows they age your face by seven years.
And don’t include alcohol, group shots of friends, or a hastily photoshopped-out ex.
These photos create the most conversations because they break the ice.
Include your most sociable interests in your profile ..your solitary passions. For example, if you love film, mention the cinema, not the fact you recently lost an entire weekend to Netflix.
The dating profile headline is a one-time lightning-quick opportunity to show a little flair, and highlight something about your personality or a special interest.
The tagline can showcase your wit, a love of poetry, sense of humor, a romantic or philosophical nature, etc.
Write a brief, upbeat profile Nothing too deep or too long.
The most successful photos are taken in daylight, using an SLR camera (not a smartphone), and show just one person, not a group. Include a photo of you engaged in an interesting activity Like playing an instrument, a sport, or in an unusual location.
Too bad most of them are blowing a great opportunity to grab your attention, and make you want to dig deeper.
Let’s be realistic—most of us enter zip code and age parameters, and then narrow the criteria with a custom search for a word of interest, such as 'brewpub', 'warriordash', or 'camping' Then, as soon as humanely possible we get to the photos.
Taking the time to write a good profile will help you increase your odds of getting a match who is right for you, and having a great first date.
A good profile is the backbone of your personality. Don’t be afraid to communicate what you want, and what you don’t want.
