Why № 4 is so common?
After using dating apps for a while, it’s impossible not to notice some patterns in user’s profile pictures. The first impression matter even in online dating, so if you don’t see some unique profiles and photos, it seems hard to believe that you can find someone special here. All you need to do while dating online is to follow some rules to make your profile attractive to other users. And what you don’t need to do is to use some photos like these in your profile.
Here we got the most common and stereotyped photos that you need to avoid in your dating profile.
If you think that your photo with a bunch of cute girls hugging or kissing you will make a woman write you first, you are clearly wrong. No one would like to date a womanizer or someone who is always seeking attention among the opposite sex. So, if you’ve registered on a dating app to find someone, you better show your future partner that she will be special with you. No matter if you want a serious relationship or just to hang out with someone for a couple of days. Everyone wants to feel unique (even if deep inside they know it’s not true).
This rule works for women as well. It’s hard to believe that you will be successful at online dating if you have a profile picture with your ex-boyfriend or some other men.
The Snapchat girl
It’s not really clear if this kind of girls tries to be playful or wants to hide their real faces. Anyway, it looks really creepy, Especially, if they use a few filters at a time and don’t have any real photos. Yes, you might look cute with these dog ears but everyone wants to know how do you look like in real life, so there won’t be any surprises.
The bikini girl
Summertime gives us a lot: sunny weather, summer holidays and… plenty of bikini girl’s photos. Well, it’s actually a great opportunity if you want to show your body, and a lot of men on dating app would love it. However, if you already decided to make some bikini photos, at least be creative and don’t copy the same pattern like jumping on a beach or laying in a sexy pose from the Instagram… There is nothing worth than going through the same beach photos over and over at the summertime. Be creative and show that you are not just beautiful but also unique.
The “which one is she” girl
One of the most common mistakes of profile photos is posting a group photo with your friends. Maybe you want to show that you are a very communicative person and you have lots of friends. Or maybe you just look good ob this particular photo. Well, your plan has failed as no one will ever know where in this photo you are. Even if you have some other photos in your profile, it’s not likely that someone would bother to check who from these people on the photo is you.
The muscle selfie guy
There is nothing bad about showing what a nice body you got. But, honestly, there have been so many selfies in a mirror just to show off your muscles that it’s kind of lame. If you are really that proud of your work out practice and you want to highlight it in your profile, then you better ask someone to take a picture of you. Showing off in front of the mirror looks selfish and there is a huge probability that women won’t like to date such a narcissistic guy.
