For men in their 30s and above, consider using a “dress up” shot.Many women looking for a mature, established man want to know you can hang at a company event or cocktail party.
While it’s true that a group photo does convey those traits, it only helps you if you look great in the photo AND you’re the most attractive one in it.If you're lucky enough to be a guy in his early 20s, good news – you can skip the suit shot – it might actually hurt your chances by making you seem too serious or even uptight.But you can still convey success by choosing a picture of you at a nice club, restaurant, or other “luxurious” surroundings. You don’t want to look like you’re bragging, and survey data indicates that 81% of singles want to see casual photos showing your everyday life. But when you're choosing a photo, keep a sharp eye on the surroundings.It’s important that you look great in the photo even with him cropped out of it, but with him in it, you’ll look even better.(Note: Don’t use this as the primary photo on your profile.What you AREN'T is the guy in the background, watching the action go down around you. If you’re hiking with a small group of friends, you’d want to be the one leading the way.
