No profile picture online dating
[Read: 12 things men like in women other than her looks] Should you stop posting photos on your online dating profile? If you’re serious about looking for a partner out there, you need to get with the program.What happened to me was a fluke and not all of the guys I dated were keepers anyway.It was also fun to develop strange personas and use weird pick-up lines on people you would never see in real life. But I grew tired of making people uncomfortable, so I decided to dial down the crazy and left my profile alone. When I felt comfortable enough with the conversation, I asked them point blank why they decided to message me.When I returned a few weeks later, I was surprised to find dozens of messages from the guys I looked at, and some who I never even clicked on. Most of them gave the same answer: I was intrigued by your bio.All of them were a variety of bland greetings and creative quips about my tag line. Some of the messages went like this: Note: The usernames of the people involved have been redacted to prevent any lawsuits and physical altercations in broad daylight. They admitted that they wanted to find out if what I was saying was true.Some of them tested my sincerity by opening up about the topics that I expressed interest in like the economy and politics.
The confidence in my tag line overshadowed the insecurity that my lack of a picture presented.That meant finding everyone I knew and dated and blocking them for fear of getting a text message saying, “So, I saw you on [insert name of app or site]. ” Apart from that, I couldn’t divulge any information about myself, unless it was within the confines of a personal message. My take on the matter Those are just a few of the messages I received.I was Googlable, so I didn’t want to give my last name out as well. The rest were a variety of the same phrases, while some were pretty much dead starters.The strength of what I was saying made talking to me seem like a good bet.Aside from putting an accurate, yet presentable representation of yourself on your profile, make sure that your bio and other aspects of your profile are on point. Bask in your confidence, but try not to look condescending and arrogant.
