Choosing Pictures For Your Online Dating Profile

Aug 28, 2008
As you probably know, online dating profiles with pictures get more interest and attention that those that do not. You want to add photographs of yourself to your profile that are going to be representative of who you really are.

When you do this, you give the people who look at your profile a preview of who you are and how much fun you would be to hang around with. You may be a bit hesitant to put pictures up, but it really is the best way to make the most of your online dating experience.

Choose the Right Pictures

Many people want to impress the other people on the online dating website and so they put up pictures that are not necessarily representative of who they are. What many people do is take a favorite picture of themselves from ten years ago.

Sure, you were younger and thinner 10 years ago than you are now, but is that really an honest way to get the attention of other people? Would you want to see a picture of the people that you are talking to from 10 years ago or would you rather that they were just honest about who they are and what they look like? You need to consider this when you choose your pictures.

A lot of people get stuck trying to find pictures that are really sexy. In fact, many people make the mistake of posting nude or almost nude pictures. There is no shame in being proud of your body and being accepting of nudity, but you need to realize that the pictures you post are a reflection of who people will think you are.

If all you talk about in your profile is sex and then you post nude pictures the respondents are likely not going to want much more from you. If this isn't what you are looking for, you had better think about this before posting pictures of yourself!

Try to post pictures that capture you the way you look everyday. These don't have to be pictures taken by a photographer, they can be candid shots that capture the way you really look. These may not get the attention of those looking for nude or sexy pictures, but they will give people who you talk to a real look at who you are and they won't be surprised or let down when or if they meet you in person.

The idea is to select pictures that are truly representative of the person that you are today. If you are looking for serious relationships chances are you will have a lot more luck if you post pictures that capture who you are in your every day life. Sure, many people will like sexy or nude pictures, but remember that these are the caliber of people you will be attracting!
