The online dating industry is growing bigger than ever, reducing interactions and first impressions from a one-time date to spending a few seconds browsing through a person’s profile. With people growing even more particular about who they choose to interact with, it is vital to ensure that your online profile is ready to attract every like-minded person that you’d like to meet.
Most people are naturally photogenic. Even without much makeup or elegant clothing, they still look stunning. While you struggle, they don’t even need to try to make an effort. They are just naturally good at having beautiful photos.
We now live in a world of swiping, instant gratification era. It only takes about three seconds to make that impact in the dating marketplace. You want to make sure that you have your best foot forward to get them swiping right and scoring that first date.
Online dating can be much fun and exciting. Despite the hustle and bustle of working life, single men and women looking for that perfect partner now rely on the power of online dating apps or websites. However, choosing the perfect photo for your profile can be an excruciating task. Remember, with online dating, you only have a split second to make a lasting impression, and profile photos are the best tool to create that impact.
Everybody knows that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but sometimes a picture is enough to say a thousand words when it comes to the world of online dating. These sites work similarly to how most speed dating works, which is why first impressions matter more than anything as anyone can easily swipe away in just a glance.
Online dating is so new that not many people know how to navigate this tricky world of digital romance. One of the best ways to help yourself is knowing what NOT to do. Here are the 5 biggest turn offs committed by men and women in the online dating world.
1. Bad photos
Out of focus shots, too many group photos, low quality images, bad lighting and the list goes on. You want your online dating pics to show off the best you but also the real you. Make sure you have clear, in focus photos with decent lighting.
Feel like the romance has gone out of your relationship and that your partner may be looking elsewhere to fulfill his needs? It may time to take some action to regain his interest in you and only you.
There’s a difference between a photo that generates lots of responses and a photo that generates a life-long relationship.
Who you Are
A photo shouldn’t just show what you look like; it should also show who you are.
For example, if you’re a little edgy and rebellious then a preppy photo will attract responses from people who won’t be great matches.
Don’t do this stuff!
i. The Cut-Out Ex
There are no circumstances in which it’s wise to use a picture with an ex cropped out. Even if your client looks great, it’s the ex who will dominate. Viewers will assume your client is still hung up on them and won’t believe that they can fill the space.
