The online dating photos you choose to add to your profile can make or break your dating profile. Here is an excerpt from a recent article from the eHarmony blog about the importance of good online dating photos.
Choosing a the right good cover photo for your online dating profile is absolutely at the top of the list when it comes to your success. Here are the types of photos that will work best….We have also included some not-so-great examples that we have seen many, many times. A high quality photo can really make the difference as well, so if you don’t have the best camera — find a friend who does. The bottom line is it is worth the investment of a little time and energy to have some good pictures taken of yourself. And sorry, a selfie taken in the bathroom with your iPhone doesn’t count!

Great insight from eHarmony’s blog. They obviously see a lot of online dating photos, so they know what they’re taking about. Instead of just listing do’s and don’t they actually give you examples to show why. So many people don’t put much effort into their dating photos, putting up selfies, blurry photos, photos with an ex or friend cropped out. Would you swipe right on a profile with a bad photo? Probably not, so stop searching for reasons why you’re not getting the dates you want….it’s your profile photos. Online dating and dating apps are visual, you can delude yourself into thinking that someone will choose you for your great written pros, but you’re looking at their photo and they’re looking at yours. When you’re ready to start taking online dating and dating apps seriously, get a professional online dating photo…..and hey, you can actually use that photo on your Facebook profile (maybe that old high school boyfriend you’re still pining over will ask you out again) and your LinkedIn profile (get that promotion you want because you really do look the part of a Vice President with that new photo).
