Must read tips for the perfect profile photo: Part I

by richard 24. June 2015 17:00

Firstly, never ever underestimate the power of your profile photo.  It is the first thing that someone will see when they search for members to date or receive an email message from you, so it must be good.  A bit like walking into a packed bar trying to find a date the “traditional” way, the first thing someone is usually attracted to is your face and it is no different online!

So here is a list of things you shouldn’t do:

#1. Fuzzy or bad quality

Make sure your photo is clear.  Fuzzy and unclear photos just don’t get looked at as it looks like the person is either a) not bothered about dating and therefore not serious as they haven’t taken the time to take a clear picture or b) wanting to hide their picture and there is no need to do that as if you meet up at some point in the future you will see each other face to face anyway.

#2. Selfies (or mirror shots)

These just look terrible, usually the photo is taken at an angle, misses half their face and the lighting is totally wrong.  If you take the photo looking in a mirror your arm obscures part of your picture.  The simple rule is get someone else to take the photo.

#3. Why the long face?

When have you ever looked at someone looking miserable and thought wow, I really want to meet that person? Answer: Never.  Same applies with a photo, so think happy and look happy when it is being taken.

#4. Photos with someone else

This just confuses the person looking at your profile as they won’t be able to work out which one you are as you’re not going to put arrows on it!  Which we don’t recommend!
