I’m 24, and I’ve always seemed to have good luck with online dating.I’ve met lots of people that way, including my last two boyfriends and a lot of now-close friends.“In many ways, it’s kind of like an audition,” De Ville, who charges 0 for her services, told NBC News.“You can have a stellar profile, but if that photo isn’t connecting with people, it can kill a chance to meet an interesting person.” Pro tip from De Ville: Avoid selfies at all cost.(She is talking to you, shirtless, flexing men in a club bathroom).
For the second one, she added a black border to make an already beautiful photo fit OKCupid specifications.
So I’m thinking of upgrading mine to get out of this dry spell.
However, I have one worry about getting better photos: If I dress up really nicely, get my hair done, and get photographed in flattering lighting, won’t I look different in my photos than I will on a first date?
After all, a first Internet date is generally a casual daytime meetup, so I wouldn’t be sporting a nice hairstyle or tons of makeup, nor would I be posing under rosy, forgiving lights.
I’m really quite interested in trying to figure out why you’re going through a dry spell, but that wasn’t your primary question. Anyway, here’s my theory on professional photography: Due to the enormous competition, you want to maximize your chance of getting a first date.
