Anyone with experience in online dating can attest that they’ve seen some of the dodgiest and most awkward photos online. To avoid these cases of happening in your photos, here are six photos no one wants to see on your online dating profile.
While you enjoy taking pictures of you and your friends during a night out at the bar, no possible date will take you seriously with your eyes bloodshot and robot dancing. You may think that this will make you appear lively and energetic, but drunken photos are a major turn off.
Assuming your physical appearance hasn’t changed in over twenty years isn’t something you can get away with. Make sure that you upload a recent picture of you looking your best. This will prevent the awkward meetings of someone mentioning how different you looked in your photos.
Striking a Photoshoot
While this may be ideal for home album purposes, dating photos might make you appear too cheesy or a bit creepy. Choose pictures that look natural, spontaneous and carefree to bring out the best in you.
You might think that taking a picture of you eating a Michelin dinner will show how cultured you are; it makes you look least attractive when shoving food into your mouth. Skip the eating photos and focus on a great smile and background.
Dedicated Gym Pic
Men, even if you have spent the last year in the gym perfecting your bench presses and toning your v-cut, posting pictures of you topless in a mirror selfie will send all the wrong messages and. While you want your date to know what you’re into and that you’re in great shape, mirror selfies at the gym just scream high egoism.
Want to show off your selfie with your favorite celebrity? Posting a photo like this will take the attention away from you and cause your potential date to struggle with trying to figure out who’s who. Make sure to make yourself as the only focus of the image.
Consider all aspects of your photos, especially the ones you choose to post on your online dating profile.
