Love is only skin deep but a picture tells a thousand words.
Your picture will make all the difference with how well you do on a dating site. Think about it, what the first thing you look at when you are searching for someone to talk to on the site? I bet its their picture. Jackie from Customer Support has advice on how to make the best impression.
Hi this is Jackie from Customer Support, You know every day I approve around 400 photos to be added to our site and let me be completely honest with you. Sometimes I think why did you bother! See, when you are online dating the first thing anyone is going to see of you is your photo. If you upload a bad photo then chances are you aren't going to get the desire responses you want. So here are a few tips to help you achieve the best results for you to help others find you!
Firstly to the guys, it's great you have a nice car but your main photo needs to be of you! We can check out your car in your public photos. Also, while I am on that subject, I am sure you LOVE your penis and you are very prooud of it BUT please don't post them to the site. Trust me on this one fellas...the last thing most of we ladies wish to see is a photo of you saluting the flag!
Secondly, to my darker skinned members! I love you all but standing against a black wall with the light off just isn't going to enhance your looks! Did you know the absolute best place to have your photo taken is in the bathroom? Why? Check out the lighting! Generally it's quite bright in there and you can get clearer photos!
Thirdly, and I know you all do it! Posting photos from 1986 isn't a reflection of your true self. Let me tell you, I had the highest platform heels and chunkiest earings ever but that was 20 years ago, fashion is over it and so should you be. This is especially important for the guys...yes you did have hair once..but you don't now...but don't worry, lots of us ladies like you that way. I know... I can hear you say it right now...but I don't have anything recent of me! Well here's the deal, it costs around $10 to get one of those disposable cameras and I know if you get them developed most places will put them on a CD for you so you can install them directly onto your computer to upload them. A recent picture means there are no surprises when you get around to that all important meeting.
Next there is the issue of pictures taken with your cell phone...do you have ANY idea how bad they look? They are generally blurred and so tiny it makes you look like a small ant, not really the impression you wanted to reflect is it?
One of my personal favourites is getting a great photo with good lighting, clear and perfect positioning and then the person has the camera in front of their face! Now I am sure of you have a neighbour, friend, relative etc who will take your photo for you just this once.
Lastly and most importantly. Your main photo is the most important photo you can have, it's the one that comes up on our search results and the very first photo anyone ever sees of you. Sure, your dog is nice and your children are the cutest kids I have ever seen but this is about YOU not them. SMILE! We don't expect you to go and have some glamour shots taken but presenting yourself as your very best self is the best way to show others the real you.
Oh and one more thing, Have you ever looked at your own photos on the site? No? Ok why not do that right now? Just go to "My Home" and then click on My photos and have a look at your photos. Are they clear? Does it represent the "real" you. Can you do better? If you were viewing yourself what would you say about YOUR photo? If you ever have any problems with your photos you can always send them to me via the support pages and I will upload them for you, but please be aware...I am not a miracle worker! If you send me a bad photo then all you will get is a slightly improved bad photo! Remember, you only get one chance to make a first impression so present your best self always.
