Lately, though, I have this weird dry spell: I still get contacted, but can’t seem to make it to a first date.
You might be more comfortable wearing sweatpants at home, but that doesn’t mean you wear it to a job interview. And nothing gives you a better chance to get a first date than an amazing photo of you at your BEST.
That said, I’ve always held onto this one photography maxim in regards to online dating profiles: Which is why it baffles me that people take professional headshots and then put up a few god-awful mug shots drunkenly taken on a webcam. That kind of stuff, which reveals a personality that pro shots tend to obscure….
So, please, contact a photographer and watch your profile get more hits instantly.
I’ve been thrilled with the results and trust you will be, too. Totally agree, I encourage my friends to get professional photos made, or at least take a new set of good quality photos showing you at your best.
All it takes is 90 minutes or so with The Headshot Guy®, about the same amount of time it would take to write your online profile.
So imagine how that perfect photograph that captures you, your personality and charisma will make you feel about yourself.
Finished product: “I look less like a party boy/player, but more like a potential crazy.
The photo is well-shot and composed, but the glint in my eyes makes it look like I'll either date you or kidnap you.” Why she chose it: "It screams 'spontaneous, adaptable, adorable.' Rough-and-tumble enough to house a burrito on the street, but still looks classy doing it. " Max weighs in: "I’m lonely and this burrito will keep me company more than you can" is what this photo really says.
You want to take me home to your mother.” Max weighs in: This girl likes to drink and party judging from this picture.
The photograph you use on your online dating profile is as important as the words you use.
