So its time to take a picture, but which one?
Welcome to the dating supermarket, here you need to create a great package in order to attract more clients, or in other words… there are so many people looking for love online, that you need to adopt few rules, and listen to some tips in order to capture more attention from you potential new love.
In my recent post I have mentioned that the biggest tip of all is not to settle for the pictures you have, and use some retouching software such as Photoshop or online services such as www.looking-better.com to turn your homemade picture into something that will give you the extra push you need to really present who you are. But today it is time to talk about the actual photos.
So what is the ideal photo? Should we smile? Should we hold a cat in our hand? Should a girl show a cleavage? Should a guy show his six pack (if he has one?) so here are couple of interesting rules and surprising facts that I managed to gather for you.
First according to a website called buzzle, the important tips are to smile, not to use your passport picture, so far we do not feel smarter, don’t we? but their last tip is actually interesting: check the background of the picture, make it look interesting.
A better source is a website called ok cupid. They have tried to examine thousands of dating profiles, and compared the amount of massages they get with the pictures they use. They discovered very interesting facts.
Boys: smile, but don’t look straight into the camera. It will be also good if you will take the picture while doing something interesting like performing some sort of sport, or something funny. The important thing to avoid is taking your picture while you drink alcohol, or you will end up drinking by yourself.
Girls: you need to use your flirty look, I know you have one, ready for us… but it is important to use it by looking straight into the camera, don’t flirt to the side, or the guys will feel that you are already taken. and as for the cleavage… it is always great to use one, but with age its importance grow… yes, interestingly enough, between the ages 20 to 30 using or not using a cleavage had only a minor difference on the boys, but this is changing rapidly and after the age of 35, using the cleavage advantage, gave it users 40% more response.
So now, that you know how to take the picture, and how to improve it, you are ready to join the biggest supermarket of all – the dating supermarket
