Having pictures of you with friends or doing a hobby is a must!If you only have pictures of yourself from your webcam it looks as if you don’t do anything with your life except sit at home all day messaging girls on POF… Make sure all your photos are clear, keep sunglasses to a minimum, and I’d stay away from the shirtless pictures. Others walk into our lives and we want to leave footprints on their face! Shout out to my fingers, I can always count on them.
Also those bathroom pictures of all those guys with washboard abs are an instant turn off (insert 14 year old flashbacks to the good ol’ Nexopia days here.) This picture tells me (and the other girls) nothing more than that the guy is probably insecure and need a body shot in order to gain my attention.Being new to the online dating community I didn’t really know what to expect.We chose a playful yet hilarious headline that says to see what kind of responses I would get.I kept my profile congruent to who I am rather than a fake facade as I knew some people I know would probably come across my page and question it.Online dating is a laid back version of speed dating except you don’t need to be physically presentable; you need to arm yourself with catchy headlines, subject lines, and come up with a successful way to approach and initiate conversation to a complete stranger. Then you spend the next 16 years telling them to sit down and shut-up.
