Your online photos and profile are your personal advertisement in cyberspace; they need to be amazing.
Simply put - you need to have a fun, positive profile and great photos to attract the attention of high quality people.
We took a look at the data and broke it down into five easy tips to help you finally find your one true love.
Or, at the very least, to get a reply from a woman who doesn’t just post photos of her cats.
If one of your New Year’s resolutions for 2014 is to finally find love—and if you’re single, it probably is—then there’s a good chance you may soon turn to online dating.
According to a Pew Research poll released last October, 59 percent of Internet users think that online dating is a good way to meet people, while 36 percent of Americans who are single and actively looking for a partner, according to dating site Zoosk, are going online to find a match.
Use your photos as a primary tool to express who you are, what you love to do, where you love to go and what type of lifestyle you lead.
According to the researchers, the most successful online dating profiles have a ratio — 70 percent describing yourself, and 30 percent describing what you’re looking for. Even something simple like “Looking for someone who loves pizza and puppies.” will do.
It gives a prospective partner something to identify with.
A medium shot (like the girl in the backpack) is the optimum choice and gets the most action, as you can actually get a good sense of the person’s body type (they aren’t hiding anything) as opposed to an extreme close up shot, which gets very little interest from matches. Matches who received the least amount of communication were those who included a very narrow portrait photo, where it looked as if they had clearly cut out the person next to them. Then upload blurry, poor quality or super small images.
(The tacky factor here is high, along with the assumption that you have cropped out your ex! This seems like an obvious statement, but thousands of people upload pics like this. Because we present more emotion with the left side of the face.
