When it comes to choosing that perfect profile picture there are a few guidelines that you would do well to consider – because, shockingly, we’re all rather picky.
- No group shots.
When your potential date is swiping or scrolling through their dating app they are looking to see what you look like, not your friends.
- Make sure your pictures are up to date!
We’re sure that you looked incredible on your twentieth birthday, but if you’re now twenty-six with a completely fresh look then we’d rather see that. Save the throwback photos for a later date!
- Cut the travel snaps.
Now, we’re not saying you can’t upload one or two of your favourite travel moments – but we don’t need to know about every country you’ve ever visited. Instead, use these as conversation topics!
- Axe the ex.
If all things go to plan, you can one day tell your new partner about your ex. Your dating profile, however, is neither the time nor place to introduce the two.
- Less is more!
No, we’re not talking about your outfit – we’re talking about your room.
If you’re uploading a photo to try and convince someone that you’re the perfect person for a mature relationship, then a messy room in the background is not going to cut it.
