Dating profile photo tips - Local girls to hookup with

For ease of reading, all statements are generalized to apply to the majority and caveats are mostly left out.

Nobody likes to play “Where’s Waldo” while looking at a dating profile.

The thought that this is what you normally look like and all the other pictures must have been taken from very flattering angles just sticks, even if only subconsciously.

If you’re not certain in which pictures you look most attractive to others, I can whole-heatedly recommend using photofeeler to find out.

Did you get their permission to put their face on a public dating profile?

We can’t tell, and in most cases, a photo like that can only harm our perception of you. Similarly to the above, we can’t really tell if that’s your child, nephew/niece, or a friend’s child, and specifying as much in your profile text just isn’t enough.

At the very least your main picture should offer a clear, unobstructed view of your face. Not all your photos have to follow this rule, and wearing sunglasses outdoors is perfectly fine, but most people want to see your eyes at least once and the chances of somebody opening your profile (or swiping right directly) are higher if they can see them right from the start.

Heavy filter usage just makes it seem like you have something to hide.

Especially since you won’t be bound to places with mirrors.

What exactly constitutes “controversial stuff” of course depends on your regional culture, but examples include posing with guns or swords, smoking, or rude gestures.

(No, they’re not paying me to say that.) Your first and last picture are the most important ones, and you should choose the two in which you’re generally considered most attractive.

It might be a sad fact, but attention spans on swipe-based dating apps are very low.

Nothing screams “trustworthy” like seeing you care for an animal that looks like it wants to be near you.
