Some Thoughts About Online Dating Pics & Profiles

by @ 12:17 pm. Filed under Online Dating

Ladies and gentlemen, make sure you look your very best before posting those pictures to the online dating site you’ve chosen to use. You may have the best written profile, so you don’t want to take away from it by posting some funky looking pictures of yourself. Lose the evil red eye and that selfie in the bathroom mirror; it’s not exactly presenting you in the best light. You want to put your best look forward.

We should be using technology the best way we can to help us find that special someone. Online dating allows you to easily get to know people and share your story and hopefully meet someone and have things develop into a long-term relationship. Remember a picture is worth a thousand words, so what do you want your pictures to say.

Online dating can be a blessing for introverts that have never been very good at approaching people, especially someone you find attractive. The Internet gives everyone a chance to share their feelings with another person and get to know them at their own pace. And, when you feel comfortable, you meet them in person. Maybe you move things to the phone first, but meeting becomes easier after chatting online a bit, as it no longer feels you are meeting a stranger. This is another reason you need a good picture, so you can easily recognize them when you arrive.

No matter what online dating site you choose, you want to present your best self. You are going to have the chance to meet all kinds of people. Not all of them will be there for the same reasons you are, but you should be able to relatively easily find people that are seeking the same things you are. Pay attention to what you think of the profiles you view and make sure you aren’t doing any of the things that put you off in your own profile.

Don’t be scared of online dating. Yes, some people may not be honest in their profiles and uses fake pictures of themselves. But, they aren’t really all that different to the problems of traditional dating. People can be dishonest when you meet them in person. Online dating may be even more secure than traditional. You can keep your personal information, like where you work or live, etc., to yourself until you feel comfortable sharing them, which can be long after you’ve met the person a few times. Be smart and use the benefits of online dating to your advantage and get yourself out there.
