A report by eHarmony found that over 40% of all Americans use an online dating service. With more and more people making a move over to online dating it is more important than ever that you have a profile that shows you at your best. The first impression is so important, and your profile photo can be the difference between swiping right or swiping left!
Here are the top 3 reasons why you need a professional photo for your dating profile.
1. Make that minute count
When it comes to online dating that first photo might be the only shot you have to make a good impression. A recent report by Tobii Technology found that women spend on average 84 seconds looking at a profile while men spend around 54. That is not a lot of time. Most people aren’t combing through and reading everything you have on there. Honestly, the first thing people are looking at is the photos, so wouldn’t you want them to see something that is quality, up to date, and an accurate reflection of yourself?
2. Don’t believe everything you read
Nobody is ever TOTALLY honest when they put together a dating profile. They might spruce some things up and leave some things out as they attempt to paint themselves in the best light. You might actually be 5’9, but when you wear those fancy shoes your 5’10 so why not round up to 6’0?! Your cooking knowledge might not extend past making a bowl of cereal, but when making that profile, you are putting down that you’re someone who loves to cook.
It's not uncommon for people to tell little white lies on their profile; it’s only natural to make yourself more interesting. However, there is one thing you can NOT lie about, and that’s the photo. No one wants to be “catfished”, and the quickest way to not get a second date is by using a photo that hasn’t been updated in years. Be consistent and up-to-date with the image your putting out there. Potential partners want to meet up with the person they met online, not the picture of you ten years ago when you actually worked out.
3. The future of dating
Online dating is not going anywhere. A report by eHarmony found that over 50% percent of couples will meet online by 2031 with that number jumping to 70% by 2040. If online dating is going to become the norm then shouldn’t you take some pride in your profile. After all, it is a representation of who you are. Get rid of those sloppy, cropped and blurry party photos and get something that is quality and respectable. This might be the most important investment you make, I mean we might be looking at the rest of your life here!
