Just a couple of days ago I was looking through Eric’s photo work! as you can see from the quality of these photos I’m grateful that Eric’s on my team of hand-picked photographers.
Many of you know that I’m a HUGE fan of “on location” dating photos. And if you live in Southern California I highly recommend Marina Del Rey as a great place to get your dating photos donefor 2 reasons!
I’m glad that Tom’s on the LookBetterOnline.com team

Dating in New York can be a challenge or an adventure!
An unfair advantage to NYC men
Men in the Big Apple have an advantage. There are more single women than single men in New York City, NYC guys have a little bit of arrogance when it comes to women, (If there are so many single women compared to single guys they are in no hurry to commit to any one woman and if they aren’t getting exactly what they want during a date they have no problem ending it fast…perhaps this is the reason why)
It’s been said that women in New York compromise what they really want in their man in order to have a dating life.
So what advice can we give Female New Yorkers to help them feel optimistic?
Popular dating Advice
I’ve heard it said that a good strategy for NYC women is to keep it casual and relaxed and make sure that a man interested in her understands that she is open dating other guys; this is supposed to give him the message that other men are also interested in her which validates his interest in her. Also it’s a strategy designed to get men to compete against each another when it comes to female attention…. (By telling him that there are other guys out there it will make him want to be the best man and try really hard. )
The problem with this strategy is that.
1. There are more women so the guy doesn’t have to work too hard.
2. It’s manipulative
3. We guys aren’t so smart so might just think you’re not interested in us
What can a woman in New York do?
I think that there are 3 winning strategies that a woman in New York can have:
1. You need great photos!
2. You need a good written profile
3. You need a dating strategy
1.You need great photos!
I’ve lost count of the number of people I’ve met who think they have good dating photos but don’t;
As an expert on Dating Profile Photos I’ve looked at a ton of photos and spoken with thousands of people They ALL tell me that their photos are fine until I share with them what’s wrong and then they see exactly why they are failing miserably!
If you’re NOT getting the dates you deserve, are feeling lonely or are meeting the wrong sort of people – then you could have a “Dating Photo blind spot.” (Due to not posting a specific kind of photo.)
People blame dating websites for lack of matches, or worse end up feeling unattractive or unable to meet someone special and find lasting love, yet it doesn’t have be this way.
First impressions are important- and that’s especially true when you’re dating online…most people online won’t even look at a profile unless the pictures have won their attention.
You do this yourself. You put effort into thinking about what you want from a partner, understanding what you really want and make your online written profile as friendly, upbeat and interesting as possible… and what do you do when you reach a dating site?
You look first at the pictures.
When you’re browsing the dating search results, a picture is the first thing you see. And if you don’t immediately like what you see, it will be the last you see of that single.
Exactly the same thing is happening to you.
You might have a sparkling personality and interests that match exactly those of the person checking out your picture, but if your photos aren’t as impressive as your character, you won’t get any more than a glance at your page.
“Your photo is your ID. It’s the first thing people see before they start reading and digging in for all the juicy details.”
“If you don’t have a selection of great looking profile photos then it’s going to be much harder to get you the great results that you want. The bottom line is better photos get you better dates – with better people. Unappealing photos get unappealing dates – with unappealing people!

2. You need a good written profile
Create a well written Profile and create more interest…so that people who like your photos will want to meet you. Many women make the fundamental mistake of writing way too much here! So don’t forget that the purpose of a profile is to get someone’s attention not give them your life history!
3. You need a dating strategy
With more women than men you need to have a strategy for the way that you date and the way you go on dates!
