Creating a Dating Profile

Selling yourself through your online dating profile isn’t as easy as you think, especially for a guy. Making sure that you use the right photos will go a long way when it comes to increasing your chances of attracting someone. There are some people who don’t want their face to appear on a dating site due to feelings of embarrassment; however, statistics from eHarmony show that having a good profile picture can improve your dating changes up to nine times. Today, we’re going to give you some tips on how you can go about creating a picture that shows off your good side.

Be Yourself

Whether you’re looking for a casual hook up or a long-term relationship, having a good photo on your profile can be the difference between success and failure. Make sure to put up a current version of yourself, the last thing you want to do is shock someone who meets up with you because they were expecting you to look how you did in the 10-year-old photo you had up. While you may be self-conscious about how you look, being honest about your appearance will allow you to attract someone who’s into the real you.

The Three Best Photos to Use

The Head Shot: Firstly, you should use a headshot of yourself, so women browsing your profile know what you look like close-up. Pictures of your face will also show that you have nothing to hide and that you’re comfortable in your own skin. Whenever possible, try to make use of natural light and remember to smile; you want your picture to look as authentic as possible so that people can get a glimpse of the real you. Don’t cover your face by wearing sunglasses or a hat, while you may think this looks cool, it also looks like you’re covering something up.

The Body Shot:Showing off your body will give people a better sense of what to expect should they ever decide to meet up with you. You’ll often find people taking pictures at an angle to hide any flaws they think they have, try to avoid doing this at all costs.

The Action Shot: Having a picture taken of you while you’re doing something you really enjoy can help spark an interest in a potential mate. Not only does an action shot allow you to show off your passion, it can also make for a damn cool photo that you can use somewhere else, maybe on your Facebook and/or Twitter profile.
