Choosing a really good cover photo for your online dating profile is absolutely at the top of the list when it comes to your success. We realize we have pulled these from a stock photo gallery (kinda cheating!) — but the point here is just to give you some ideas of the best direction to go in to ensure more interest in your profile.In the world of online dating, where up to 40 million singles search for love every day, first impressions are everything.Your online photos and profile are your personal advertisement in cyberspace; they need to be amazing.Could your online dating profile be keeping you from meeting the one?I know: You put up your online dating profile with a ton of hope and anticipation.If the photos don’t cut it, we generally don’t click on the person. But if we make it past the photo, skimming profiles, the first thing you'll notice is the profile tagline.This little ditty can compel us to read further, or it can cause us to roll our eyes and move on.
There are zillions of daters out there in dating-land vying for your attention, hoping that you will recognize that they, uniquely,can fill that magical place in your heart.
We have seen many photos like this one on profiles -- where the glare is really bad, or the shadows actually cover part of the person's face, or the photo is way oversaturated.
This is not the best idea for a cover photo, obviously.
Too bad most of them are blowing a great opportunity to grab your attention, and make you want to dig deeper.
Let’s be realistic—most of us enter zip code and age parameters, and then narrow the criteria with a custom search for a word of interest, such as 'brewpub', 'warriordash', or 'camping' Then, as soon as humanely possible we get to the photos.
