Profile Tip: Your Picture
We know, we know, you don’t want to put up a picture of yourself. You’re not photogenic, you never like the way pictures come out, and you want a girl to like you for your personality.
Unfortunately, you must put up a profile picture. No woman is ever, ever going to go on a single date with a guy who doesn’t have one up on his profile. However, you can make the most of this opportunity to make yourself look fantastic, no matter what you look like.
Women are visual creatures.
This means that a woman is going to want to know what she’s getting when she clicks on your profile. Post photos that make you look good, and that aren’t vulgar. You want to make yourself look like a catch, not like someone who should be starring in pornography.
Good lighting will get you everywhere.
If your lighting is good in your booty call dating picture, you’ll look good. It’s as simple as that. The better your lighting and camera equipment, the better your picture. Many studies have shown that a better camera will get you more dates, so keep that in mind when you’re shopping around.
Don’t be shy to show your body.
In general, women are more flexible about the kinds of body types they find attractive than men are. This means that pretty much no matter what your body type is, you’ll be able to find a woman who’s looking for that…seriously. It’s when men hide what they look like that women get nervous, so don’t do that.
Show off your full body, but do it in a classy way, like in a well-fitting suit. Someone once said, “A well fitting suit is to women what sexy lingerie is to men,” and you’ll be surprised by how true that is.
Keep your pictures simple.
You don’t need to go out and hire a professional photographer to make you look good. Most women won’t really respond to that as well as they will towards a simple, friendly picture.
These women aren’t trying to scope out the very hottest bloke by looking at these pictures. All they’re trying to do is see whether you’re a real-looking man, so they’re not worried about meeting up with you in person.
If a picture on a one night stand site doesn’t make you look good, don’t put it up there. If you’re hearing negative feedback to one of your photographs, take it down and try some new pics.
One thing you can try that helps to get women interested is to have a photograph of yourself with some purchase you’re proud of. A boat, a car, or a house all work for this, so take a picture of yourself in front of it with the caption, “Finally paid it off!”
Yes, it sounds stupid but it works.
Your picture should do you favors.
If a picture isn’t working for you, there’s no need to have it up there. You want to feel good about yourself, and your picture should be another thing that makes you feel confident.
Remember, the picture is only there to make her confident that you’re the real deal. She’s just going to check it quickly before heading to the rest of your profile to see if you’re a keeper.
