How To Give Yourself The Edge In Your Dating Profile Picture

If you think it’s more of a manly thing, then you’re wrong. Time to get a photo that will get you women because they’ll feel like a princess around you. Men looking for a serious relationship, benefit most from a Tinder dog photo. That’s because taking care of a dog requires responsibility and nurturing skills. Now if you DON’T have a dog, then you’re in a bit of a pickle. So all of you guys skipping leg day… you’re in luck.

Recently, he giddily kept me posted on the pre-first-date chemistry he shared with a woman he met online. Whether or not we benefit from photographs in the company of others, also depends on our gender and the gender of the person with whom we are pictured. Whether the assimilation or contrast effect applies may depend on the size of the difference in attractiveness between you are the other people in your profile.

Which photos should you ditch on your dating profile? Selfies don’t make you look your best and posting a photo with your puppy dog will make him or her assume you sleep in bed with your four-legged friend. They’ll assume there’s no room for them in your life. Of these photos, the primary shot needs to be a close-up, smiling, wearing an outfit with a solid color such as red for women and blue for men. Red is my favorite color for women as it’s the color of passion, love and romance.

Be honest in your profile

The primary reason you joined online dating site is to move on from your ex to something better. The truth is uploading a picture with your ex-love interest means you are still carrying the baggage from your previous relationship. It says you are not ready for dating again yet.

Travel Pics

One big time dating coach tells his viewers to max out your profile. Then it’s time to slap yourself in the face, and grab life by the balls. But until you do, I have a Tinder picture tip for you that doesn’t require any of the above. Mirror selfies and any other type of selfies are out of the question. Only use a photo with an arty ring to it or an action shot. Try to avoid the serious headshot that appears on your Linkedin profiles.

The heavily cited Hinge study that I’ve referenced probably one to many times also says that travel photos receive 30% more likes than the average profile picture. Instead of exposing your future love to yet another boring selfie, why not upload a candid photo? Buck the contrived trend of inundating the SM airwaves with selfies and instead get real. Candid photos are 15% more likely to receive a like on Hinge than other types of shots. Luckily there are no doubt some mistakes you’re making that can be easily fixed. Heed the following dating app photo tips for guys- make the adjustments, and start swiping to reap the rewards.

There’s no need to hide glasses from your dating profile if you typically wear them. If you wear glasses, include some photos with them and others without. This way, people see what you look like both ways. Using a flattering headshot as your first picture for a dating profile helps you form an instant connection and boosts the chances of someone wanting to match with you. Whether you’re looking for a long-term or casual relationship, dating apps are a great place to meet someone new.

In a third scenario, the person viewing your profile may not like pets and they may swipe left instead of right. But if you’re a pet owner, that’s probably totally OK since you’re probably only looking for a potential partner who could love your fur baby too. The first thing someone should consider when selecting photographs for your online dating photographs is does the photograph reflect the real you.

Show off those beautiful eyes and make it clear that you’re looking for a connection. People aren’t there for the most aesthetic, trendy shot. People take only a split second to decide which way to swipe on your profile, which is why choosing the right photos is so important.

Overall, avoid selfies and stick with photos taken by someone else, even if that “someone else” is a tripod. We conducted an analysis to discover the best dating profile pictures. According to Hinge’s 2017 Profile Picture Report, 80 percent of Hinge users’ profile pictures were posed — but those that were candid were 15 percent more likely to be liked by other users. Have a handful of both candids and posed shots to get the best of both worlds and wow everyone. Users wearing glasses in a profile picture were 15 percent less likely to be right-swiped; for those wearing a hat, their chances of being swiped right on decreased by 12 percent. I’m back with another post in my series on being single.

Make a peace sign, embrace the sky, or simply take a shot of your shadow on an interesting surface. Also, try to limit any group pics to one to five people. A photo of you and your 25 closest bros tells me nothing about what you actually look like, and is also vaguely threatening. A few men is a friend group, more than that is a fraternity. Use another photo of you participating in a hobby or interest. Vacation photos demonstrate ambition and a love of life.

A survey showed that 82% of people on social media want to see ‘normal’ photos. Even if your 6 selfie Tinder profile doesn’t trigger a fight or flight response, it’s likely to give the impression that you’re full of yourself. And as for it getting harder and harder to stay in shape as you age, cry me a river. Age is a trumped up measuring system that doesn’t even remotely describe who we are as people.

But the sweaty guy pics and your bench press number can, um, stay at the gym. Sorry to break it to you guys, but we aren’t looking for tickets to the “gun show” in your profiles. Nor pics of you dripping sweat (and smelling lovely, we’re sure) at the gym. Nor do you need to highlight in every section of your bio that you workout, count “going to the gym” as your top hobby, or are “looking for a girl who values physical fitness”.

One pic of you somewhere adventurous or doing something noteworthy . One pic like the main one but your body is visible. Going back to the idea of being authentic; don’t try to act like the coolest person on Tinder.
