Profile pics for dating sites
When a match opens your profile for the first time, they are drawing some important conclusions about whether you’re right for them. Some men, it turns out, aren’t great at understanding the types of photos that hurt their chances of meeting their match.So as a public service, we’ve collected a range of photos to help men understand what NOT to post on their profiles.His facial expression does not get me excited either; he looks really, really bored. He looks like he’s waiting for the bus and forgot to bring something to keep him occupied…The shirt tells me nothing about his style, and I can’t get much of a sense of his body shape. Catherine: I’d prefer if the photo weren’t rotated 45 degrees. He looks like an attractive guy, but he also looks bored.Jennifer: I like this photo, but only if it was just one of the photos #2 had to offer.Emily: Like Jennifer, I hope this isn’t the only picture #2 is offering.
A shot that is probably supposed to come off as soulful and deep to me reads “brooding and bitter.” When I was 18 I thought “brooding” meant “mysterious, deep, and misunderstood”.
It’s a little lazy and so over done that it’s a joke on the internet.
If this were the first photo or the only photo I saw on a dating profile I don’t think I would stay on that page for long.
At 28 I tend to think it means “unaddressed depression”.
As one shot of several it could be okay, if the others showed that he was a happy and fun person.
I could just be some keyboard jockey pulling ideas out of thin air.
