In most cases, pictures showing you engaged in a highly unpopular activity, or representing a controversial opinion, should be left out of a dating profile.
This is true even if you absolutely require the other person to be into the same things, thus wanting to filter out anyone who isn’t, but that’s the topic of next week’s article.
If you also manage to take/find one where you yourself look great, then that makes for a fantastic main photo. To give us an idea of the minimum required attractiveness to be in your company?
Or do you just innocently think it’s a great picture of you?
Disclaimer: The following is aimed at women looking for men, and men looking for women, respectively.
Tastes and opinions vary wildly of course, and there are many exceptions.
Is it at least somewhat filled with good and/or interesting pictures? An organically grown Instagram account, showcasing your favorite pictures of yourself, holidays, friends, landscapes, whatever you find interesting, will lend some additional insight into your personality and complement your bio.
We can’t tell, and in most cases, a photo like that can only harm our perception of you. Similarly to the above, we can’t really tell if that’s your child, nephew/niece, or a friend’s child, and specifying as much in your profile text just isn’t enough.Especially since you won’t be bound to places with mirrors.What exactly constitutes “controversial stuff” of course depends on your regional culture, but examples include posing with guns or swords, smoking, or rude gestures.(No, they’re not paying me to say that.) Your first and last picture are the most important ones, and you should choose the two in which you’re generally considered most attractive.It might be a sad fact, but attention spans on swipe-based dating apps are very low.
