Worst Online Dating Pic? Look here


A quick look on Match.com  and here are five examples of “What not to do” when selecting photographs for your online dating profile.

Can you tell what is wrong in each picture?

Harry Harley is “selling” his bike, first. Then he hides behind sunglasses, leathers and a scarf. Just post a headshot. That’s all.

Connor Call Me appears to be desperate. Call me? That is not the way  game is played – unless you want Nancy from Nigeria and Rhita from Russia to call you. Onlne Dating Scammers are on the look-out for trusting and ignorant shills who post too much information. Slow down, you should have qualms about sharing too much personal information on a dating site.

Jim Whymore: Where to begin? Rule #1: Never, ever post a photo of yourself with a girlfriend.  Rule #2: Never hide behind sunglasses and a hat. Again, posting your name on your photo is not necessary.

Good luck, out there!

    Okay, but although I couldn’t post it and wouldn’t if I could, I must say that I received the all-time worst social media photo of all times from a very old man on OkCupid. He sent me a photo of himself nude from the waist down! Not a winner any way you looked at it, and I certainly didn’t for long!!!
