Dating photos from clothing
No one wants a date who goes on and on about themselves before they’ve even gone out together. Yes, you absolutely have to describe yourself, but not down to the last detail. Zoosk member Not Young Still Restless does a great job of summing himself up, saying, “I’m 52, and I still love to go out, exercise, drive my car too fast, and play my rock n’ roll too loud.” It’s all about striking a good balance between not enough information and way too much information.
Your dates don’t need to know you won a spelling bee in third grade.
Online daters should aim for a bunch of good-quality pictures of themselves engaging in a fun activity, visiting an interesting location, or wearing a fabulous outfit.
According to Time’s word analysis of online dating, “Women who found relationships used the word ‘relationship’ 16% more often than those who are still single.” Even more subtle language, like “heart,” “romantic,” and “children,” can also indicate your serious intentions and lead to more engaged responses from commitment-oriented online daters.
On a dating site, adding just one picture doesn’t cut it anymore.
If you have a picture of yourself doing all of the above, all the better.
Your photos often undergo the most scrutiny from online daters eager for some face time. The tone should be conversational and peppered with good humor.
