Dating website profile picture tips for kids

Start by making sure whatever pictures you post show you smiling. The scenery might be lovely but no one wants to use a magnifying glass to get a good look at you.

You're not doing yourself aDo use a professional photographer

Make sure your face fills up most of the picture frame. If you decide to meet, he or she is going to see your body anyway, so you may as well show it all upfront in a full length picture and let people decide what they want to do about it. This is tacky and no one really wants to see what your toilet looks like behind your legs.

Do use a professional photographer or a friend who knows how to take a good casual picture. You're not doing yourself a favor posting pictures that are older than two or three years. Let them find your friend in his or her own profile. Do be the only person in the picture.

Men love a woman's smile and it's often the first thing they will notice about you.

The next seven rules apply to both men and women. This is especially true for women. Do post at least two to four pictures of yourself. Like it or not, we are visual beings.

Make sure your picture looks like you right now. It's confusing to people who don't know you, trying to figure out which one you are. Don't post pictures you take of yourself in a mirror. Using Photoshop, a pro can take a casual picture and quickly turn it into a professional one by changing the background. Your power is in determining whether or not they are worthy of dating you.

And make sure they are pictures you are in as well. The background of a picture says a lot about your lifestyle and who you are. You're also setting them up to be attracted to your friend instead of you. You probably love yours too. So you think it's best to only post a picture of your face, thinking that once a man or woman gets to know you and like you, he or she won't care what you look like below the neck.
