Choosing the right profile picture

You might know it from your own experiences: a good profile picture is very important for the first impression you get from someone! When you click through someone’s profile pages, what often counts is the first image you get of him or her. That is why you should keep a couple of factors in mind, when you try to find the perfect picture.

Be yourself

Take a photo which really expresses your own personality. Do not try to be someone else – because if you are meeting the person you feel attracted to for the first time, he or she will see that you pretended to be someone else in the photo. Take a new, up-to-date portrait picture which you think really shows who you are.

Don’t be too sexy

Always keep in mind that if you are looking for a long-term relationship, kinky or erotic pictures are not what other people want to see when they try to find a potential partner as well. You might give the impression of having just one thing in mind when looking for someone. Moreover, it seems unserious and a bit desperate as well. Lads, this includes you, keep that shirt on.

A friendly smile

Of course, people who look very friendly on pictures have more chances to get a message from someone than people who have a serious face. The best thing then would be to go for a nice picture of you in which you are showing your best smile! This shows that you are a sympathetic, open and friendly person. And this is what your profile picture should transmit – a positive first impression!
