Have you wondered how to make sure your online dating profile stands out from the crowd and attracts the type of interest you want? Although the written part of your profile is important, the first thing people see is your picture. Which is why the best and most effective thing you can do, is to use really great photos of yourself.
WHAT KINDS OF ONLINE DATING PHOTOS GET THE RESULTS YOU WANT? According to dating experts (I’ll link to some of their articles at the bottom of this post), your absolute best bet is to use high quality photos where you look comfortable, happy and natural.
A smiling photo. A picture of you with a smile that’s clearly genuine, is the most attractive photo you can use. It doesn’t have to be a big, toothy grin, what matters is that your smile shows in your eyes. It’s simple human nature, that real smiles automatically create a positive response.
A flattering hips/waist up photo. People want to see your body shape and type. Use a picture where your body language is relaxed and confident.
A candid, personality photo. Something that shows you being yourself and/or displays something you’re interested in.
An outdoor photo. Natural light is the most flattering, and outdoor backgrounds are generally more interesting and visually appealing.
TO MEET A GREAT PERSON, USE GREAT PHOTOS. Online dating experts and match-makers will all tell you the same thing. If you want attractive, intelligent, confident people to be impressed and intrigued by your online profile, the best choice of all, is to hire a professional photographer who specializes in online dating photos.
To find a photographer in your area who specializes in online dating photos, simply do a search term for the phrase ‘Online dating photographer’ and the name of your city or town. While viewing their portfolios/photo galleries, look for pictures where people look natural, happy and comfortable.
The investment in a professional photographer is so worth it. By using quality photos for your dating profiles, you’ll find that you very quickly start getting much better results, and a lot more of them.
