Choosing a Photo for Your Online Dating Profile

Profile PhotoMany people rush through the process of creating their dating profile but this is not something that you should hurry.  Your profile is the way that you let other people know who you are, what you like, and what you are looking for. Those that rush through the process of creating their profile will find out that it is much more difficult to meet the type of people that they want to meet than it should be. One of the most important elements of putting together a great profile is choosing the right photo.

How to Choose Your Photo
Choosing your photo for your online dating profile is actually very simple, if you let it be. First of all, you should choose a very current photograph.  Many people have a picture of themselves from ten years ago that they really love, and while it is a great picture for your parents and your friends to have of you, it probably isn’t really representative of who you are now. We all change as we age and the more current your photograph the better. A good rule of thumb is not to use a picture that is more than nine to 12 months old.

Next, you should make sure that your picture is representative of who you are. If you are a really introverted, private person you shouldn’t attempt to post nude or really sexy photographs. Your photographs should compliment what you write on your profile, so make sure that whatever picture you post that it goes along with what you have written. For instance, if you hate being outdoors you shouldn’t post that one picture of you when you were forced to hike with a friend!

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and this could not be truer than it is when it comes to online dating. Your picture is often what will draw people in and allow them to learn more about you, so have a picture that is representative of who you are, and could stand alone if it had to.

A lot of people make the mistake of trying to post pictures that show their entire figure. The main picture that you choose should be one that shows your face, front and center.  If you have the ability to post more pictures you can post full length pictures, but this isn’t necessary.  If you hit it off with someone you can always send them more pictures through email. Just remember that if you do post many pictures to leave something to the imagination!
