camilo villegas dating - Pictures for dating profile

Those serious about online dating want to have a complete and accurate profile of those they will potentially date.Of course it’s natural to feel self conscious about elements of your appearance but everyone feels this.

Except, perhaps, for pictures solely of children, underwear shots and snaps of people in their swimsuits taken while standing inside, which incidentally, have also all been banned.

While this is brilliant news, there are still a few classic offenders that show up on other dating sites (Tinder, we’re looking at you) that need to be ousted in the process.

And now, it’s done one better and banned mirror selfies from its site.

After all, few things are more annoying than a selfie taken in front of a bathroom mirror with a phone covering half the person’s face.

I’m going to start with guys first as there are some slight differences between men and women’s dating photos. For guys, while you obviously need a smiling, happy shot direct to camera, especially for your main profile photo, you also need some supporting shots that show you staring off to the side, looking past the lens not directly into it.

There was some research undertaken by Zoosk that said some women may find that too many photos, where you’re staring directly into the lens, can be a bit intimidating.

Research has shown that the only thing worse than a bad profile picture is no photo at all.

A lack of photos instantly alienates a huge amount of online daters because it makes them question why you want to hide the way you look.

Monday 2 January 2017 is going to be THE busiest day of the year for the UK’s online dating industry with thousands of single people up and down the country logging on to their favourite dating sites and apps (and probably signing up to some brand spanking new ones) to take advantage of the New Year optimism that everyone feels at the beginning of the year.

To give you a head-start, here are my top tips for creating and choosing the best dating profile photos.

However when done badly, they can give an inaccurate impression of your character and most likely you won’t meet the type of people you want to.
