I’ve coached many men who seem to agree pictures matter most – profiles can be a chore. Get the message? Take these 4 Online Dating Tips to heart.
- Hire a Professional Photographer – This IS your 7 second first impression! Men are going to pass you for their own reasons, but don’t give them any extra ammo. This No. 1 Tip is the real reason most women get overlooked and become frustrated with online dating. You want every single photo to be sharp, expressive and clear. Wearing your confidence with a smile in every shot! This is by far the best way to take your profile to the next level. You can have a stellar profile, but if that photo isn’t connecting with men, it can kill your chances of ever meeting Mr. Right. Please note, many single men in midlife are online dating. One in five relationships starts on an online dating site, but little straightforward guidance exists for users. Hiring a professional photographer is every online dater’s solution to putting their best face forward!
- Post More Than One No More Than 5 – We all know variety is commonly known as the spice of life, and the same goes for your online dating photos. However, be aware of what works against you … any one of those photos could eliminate you … translation … less is more. Men are Hunters and like to be lured in. Show off your feminine power in each photograph even if it’s a stretch for you. Your professional photographer should be able to have you feeling sexy, confident and comfortable all at the same time! Each shot should show off your personality. We recommend you post a handful of you in different poses. Professional but not stiff, casual and engaged in different activities! (Do you like to cook? Hold a prop! It gives the guy an opening!) Appear likable, approachable and happy wearing your confidence with a smile in each shot! Tell your story in pictures.
- Portray How You Really Look/Attract What You’re Looking For – One of the biggest mistakes of online dating is lying about your appearance and characteristics. Warning: Photos that are more than 5 years old should not be used. Within a year is ideal. Photo selection matters. You don’t want to end up with sexy sultry photos attracting the wrong kinds of men like client Donna. Although a well established professional looking for the same, her inbox was flooded with bikers, boozers, and players. Once we uploaded pictures that represented her independent and sassy lifestyle, her entire online dating experience changed for the better. Too suggestive photos can attract the wrong men and face to face surprises never end pretty.
- Wear Your BEST Color – You know that one color you often wear that attracts compliments from people? That’s most likely your best color. Not sure? Google a Professional Image Consultant in your area and have a color analysts evaluation. It’s also wise to make expensive investments in colors that compliment your natural coloring. Wear your best color next to your face in your primary online picture. Remember you only have one chance to make a first impression. Men only need one tenth of a second to make a decision about you!
