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.
Captain Ken of Indiana got too clever and doctored up his photo with Fido. In addition, he posted his full name – which is never a good idea. Sure, you want to show off and indicate you have a best friend and a boat. Take it down a notch, Captain.
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.
I’m Fading: Finally, select a photo that is curent, flattering and not faded. Skip the white sweater and go for a bright color. Red is the best attention-getting color on photographs.
Good luck, out there!
