Deciding what photos to post on your online dating profile is incredibly hard, regardless whether you have tons of snapshots or only a few. You want to look at your very best to attract profile views, even perfect if possible. Yet here is the shocking news: having perfect photos is not going to bring you the success you were hoping for, but on the contrary.
To begin with, the statistics that online dating websites periodically develop and analyze reveal that better looking users are not among the most visited ones. Or, best scenario, they only receive visits while dates materialize a lot harder. Reasons are numerous, yet here are a few of them:
1.It looks too good to be true – Perfect photos are more often suspected of being photoshopped, as belonging to scammers or belonging to anyone else but to that user.
2.It is too good for them – Online dating makes people more confident, yet not that confident to assume they can have whatever partner. And the fear that you are too good for him or her is, unfortunately, a reality.
3.It brings too many challenges-And here is the sad part: if you look that good, you will be suspected of either being dumb or too busy to have a life while working out and staying on diets.
However, all you should understand is that a photo ponders a lot, yet it can sometimes ponder too much. If you are blessed with a natural beauty that makes others envy you, under no circumstances you should be hiding it. All you need to do is to post photos with you that are as natural as possible, eventually to include a few friends and to make you more accessible. No fashion shootings on your profile!
