Oh No Not That Picture!
OH NO NOT THAT PICTURE!
Why is this the wrong picture to post on your profile? Surprisingly it’s not the women drinking…although for many that can be a red flag so be cautious.
The picture is wrong if you use it as your PROFILE shot, or the first photo people see, because we don’t know which one YOU are. If it’s the only photo you use it may be a surprise when you meet your date for the first time since they thought you were one of the other ladies. The best idea is to use a single photo of yourself smiling, possibly doing an activity you enjoy as your profile picture. Make sure it’s current, which means within the last year, not your favorite party photo from 10 years ago. That could definitely lead to confusion & tension when you meet! LOL! Since it’s important your date recognize you, don’t go crazy with photoshopping perfection either.
On the other hand this is a great shot to include if you are using more than one photo (which you should…more on that later) since it shows you smiling & having fun with friends. People are attracted to others that look happy…not blurry, sad, mean or just plain yucky.
So remember….whether you are looking for the love of your life or just a fun date for Saturday night don’t use group shots as your profile picture only a great single photo of the real you!
Good luck online daters!
