8 Tips for Effective Online Dating Profile Pictures
You can win or lose a person’s attention with your profile pictures, and it's not because of your looks. What you’re doing in the pictures can affect how you’e perceived, and with the right pictures, you will catch the attention of more people.
You don’t have to be ridiculously good-looking to be successful at online dating. In fact, sometimes more attractive people can be at a disadvantage in online dating. According to recent studies, women prefer to message guys of “average” good looks more often than they do the “most attractive” men.
Why then do so many guys post Zoolander-style selfies and shirtless gym pics? Why do women insist on close-ups with pouted lips? Why do both have so many professionally photographed headshots? They’re trying too hard — and it shows. Your potential matches probably don’t care about that stuff.
What does increase your odds of meeting more people in person, regardless of your gender and orientation, is when your pictures show your hobbies, your sense of humor, your full life, pets, and interests. More than any selfie, these profile pictures show people how you’re unique and interesting. They tell us that we have things in common with you, lots to talk about, and that it looks like fun to hang out with you.
