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.
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.
Simply stated Rick takes amazing photos.
Thousands of hours of photography
It’s clear that he’s spent thousands of hours behind a camera perfecting his photos
When I asked him why he likes Portrait photography he told me that
“It allows me to help someone capture themselves in a way that truly represents them best to the world. I love the challenge of getting the subject out of their shell and sharing themselves with the world in a new or fantastic way.”
Online dating fun…
Karl’s been on our talented team of photographers for a while now.
Over a decade of experience
Karl has been a photographer for over a decade and is clearly a master at what he does.
I’m always curious to ask “seasoned professionals” a few questions and I thought his answers would give you an idea of who he is and how he can help you get the profile photos you deserve. I’ve included some of his masterful photos too!
What do you love about photography?
I love the magic! There is something special about stopping that moment in time. When I started in photography we were shooting film. I was in awe when in the darkroom I could see that image come to life after coming out of that magic box. I had the power to preserve time for myself and for others.
Can you share a personal detail that you feel comfortable with?
When I was in school I found solace in being able to capture my classmates on film. When I could then put them in the yearbook, I gained some semblance of popularity.
Anything that you tell customers prior to a shoot/any tips/secrets to share with customers?
Relax, have fun! The idea behind a portrait session is to be yourself, but with a twist. We will work with you to create the you that is really inside. Most often when we are photographed we are not relaxed and comfortable. It is because we are thinking about it too much.
What I like to do is just have a nice conversation with you. Get to know you as a person. We will take photographs during this time. You may find that as the time goes by you loosen up and we have a nice casual session. This will result in great images!
The day of your session, don’t rush! Make it a you day. If you are calm and relaxed at the time of the shoot , the end results will be better. Pamper yourself! Have Fun!

Here are 3 signs that you could be dating a cheater…and while the truth hurts, it’s better to know, move on and find someone who is a good match.
1. He’s unavailable/doesn’t have the time
If he only makes time for you late at night than either he’s a workaholic, he’s married or he’s just not into you! If you only see him late then you’re his “booty call”.
2. He guards his phone.
If he keeps his phone with him when he goes to the bathroom then you might want to consider if you’re the only one!
3. It’s always your house never his.
While he might have an idiot for a room-mate if you’ve never been invited to his place, he’s keeping you at arm’s length for a reason.
Dating online? Regardless of your age, an important thing you need to know…
Whether you are 25 or 95 Having great online dating photos is the single most important thing you can do when dating online, so visit LookBetterOnline and find out why more than 98% of our customers get better dates, and see how with great profile pictures we can help make your online dating experience successful and more fun than you thought possible!
“If I had a dollar for every time a woman told me that she had been approached by a creepy guy online, then I’d be a rich man”.
Many women feel overwhelmed when it comes to online dating as they get many unwanted emails from “Creeper-in-the-bushes-kind-of-guys” or men who are totally unsuited to them!
But it no longer has to be a challenge as recently a new Boston-based dating website are in the process of changing things!
Jess, Meet Ken, launched last month, had the brilliant idea of putting the control of making and finding dates in the hands of women daters.
As easy as 1-2-3-4
The idea is super-simple-And its based on human nature! (remember your friend’s wife who tried to set you up with her girlfriends a few years ago?)
Women log onto the JessMeetKen website through Facebook and select a man in their lives that they love and trust in a friendly way (And all the Facebook data stays private too)
Then they answer 10 questions about him-then fill out a short profile saying why he’s a catch. All the guy has to do is agree to take part.
When a woman sees a guys profile that your another woman has posted then the women take it from there, and message each other, ask questions and find out if the guy might be a good match.
If the women think it’s a good match then they can get in touch with the lucky guy!
Again the control is in the hands of the women so if a single woman finds a man that she’s interested in meeting or getting to know, she gets in touch with the woman who posted that guy.
All guys are vouched for and cannot post their own profiles
The site’s CEO and co-founder, Ken Deckinger told me “All the guys on the website are vouched for and recommended by a woman.”
Women are more honest with each other about what’s attractive about the man and this definitely avoids the “Creepy guy vibe” as most creepy guys don’t have many women friends to vouch for them!…This is a HUGE plus in my opinion and I’m sure a lot of women will agree…I”ll say it again a HUGE plus for women
Men cannot post their own profiles….Women search the profiles and then reach out to the woman who posted their guy friend to make the connection.
All kinds of women can post guys!
and ANY women can post a man to JessMeetKen for other women to look at!
It could be a
Male friend or a Cousin or a Son or a Brother!
So How Did Jess meet Ken!
I like this site as it’s Founded by real people with real stories!
Ken knows that this kind of dating works-it’s how he met his wife Jess. Here’s how it happened:
Ken’s friend and Business partner Adele posted his profile on a dating site, adding his photo and a few words about why Ken was fabulous.
When Jess spotted Ken’s profile and asked Adele for more info Adele immediately spotted a match. She forwarded Ken Jess’s note with the subject line: “Holy S#*% it’s Your Wife.” He says 20 minutes into their first date they knew they were going to get married.
Definitely worth a try
Simply stated I highly recommend signing up for this website., it’s a great idea from great people.
