If you are aware of how things work on the dating app then you must know the online dating world doesn’t accept any dodgy or fake profile photos. By adding more filters and using you Pro editing skills will take you nowhere. Popular dating apps even ask people to remove these pitfalls in their photos.
Here are a few tips that will help you avoid uploading pictures that nobody wants to see:
Adding a lot of glitter bombs and disco effects can make your picture look more fake. So if you are an expert and runs an editing software like a Pro, try not to use it for your dating profile photo. Your face looks the best when you capture pictures without any filters.
THE MORNING AFTER
Avoid pics taken the next day after a big night. For instance, you in a kitchen laden with empty beer bottles to show how amazing last night was. These types of pictures can look cool when you are uploading them on your social media accounts. However, they cannot set a date for you. From these pictures, you unintentionally look more careless.
On dating apps, nobody is actually interested in knowing if you are interested in the 90s movies or music. Too much nostalgic vibes can set a wrong impression. By delving into the posting and showing to the world on your profile picture makes no sense. So it’s better if you stick to the generation you are living in.
STRIKING A POSE
Don’t show too much of your body to make your picture look more appealing. It can make people think differently. Also, try to avoid cheesy poses and sultry glances because your dating experience can go wrong with it.
THE GYM BOD
This is especially for the guys who feel showing off their muscles or body can impress a girl. It actually shows how crazy you are for yourself. Nobody on a dating app would want to know how much time you’ve spent on a gym to get this perfect body. Shots of you topless in front of the mirror can set a wrong impression. So stay away from mirror photos with your gym equipment.
Unless they are taken by a professional artist, travel photos can have more than a whiff. The picture of you pretending to hold up the leaning tower will leave a weird impression. However, if you know how to capture cool traveling pictures then you can completely upload them on your dating app’s profile.
THE TRY HARD
Stop showing how needy you are to date someone. Be real and be you. A picture of you clutching a book of Shakespeare’s Sonnets can grab too much attention that can make you look desperate. Make sure the props you are using make you look more real. Also, try to avoid poses that show the ‘appealing or dying to meet you’ side.
THE CELEBRITY STALKER
While posing for a picture with your favorite celebrity can be the best moment of your life. However, uploading that same picture on your dating profile is not so cool. These types of pictures distract attention away from you.
Make sure to avoid these pitfalls and you will surely find a true date.
