Perhaps it's because I'm the right age to accept online dating as a valuable tool instead of as a desperate (and strange) last resort, or maybe it's because I met my incredible husband there. My top twenty "what not to do with your photos", is an article by itself.
You should have at least ONE accurate representation of your full body in your profile, or he will simply skip to the next woman.
Every single person knows that if you’re looking for love online, there’s one thing that can make or break your swiping success rate: your bio.
As well as picking the perfect set of pictures that shows you off in your best light, you’ve probably spent hours ruminating over the perfect paragraph that will draw in a prospective date.
My biggest piece of advice to both men and women is: You are only wasting your time, and there is someone out there who is perfect for you just the way that you are!
Both men and women should try their hardest to remain positive and upbeat through their online dating experience.
“When he only has pictures of himself—body shots, selfies—that’s a no-no.” - Carly M. “If he’s not wearing a shirt in any picture, even though he’s muscular.” - Katrina K. “When a guy’s clearly cropped someone out (cough, a girl) of a photo.
“Statements or acts of belittling women, arrogance, and multiple selfies.” - Melissa T.
If you're 50, and you're only willing to (in the published age section) date women up to 40, I can't tell you how many women are cursing you.
If you think you don't look your age, I guarantee you that every other man has told me the same thing. Not reading her profile before you send her an email.
“Not including their height in their bio, and only including close-up face shots or group shots so you don’t know who he is.” - Alexa O. “Shirtless selfies, and anything like, 'Swipe right if you can handle a real man.’” - Brianna S. “If he says in his bio: ‘Your mom will love me.' Alternatively, anything that tries too hard to convince you he’s not a fuckboy because he probably (definitely) is.” - Christine Q. “Photos with tons of girls or an ex girlfriend.” - Kristin R.
