    Default How to DHV when you have no good pictures?

    I've never been a fan of being the wrong side of a camera, I hate the way I look in pictures; especially since I gained a lot of weight through medical issues. My health issues are resolved now and I'm trying to get back in shape and take better care of myself though.

    (I know I have a thread about wanting to get back with the ex which is crazy but I have my reasons though I don't want to limit myself to one avenue if things don't work out)

    I have maybe two pictures, both are dreaded selfies that I feel I don't look completely awful on but are not good photo's compared with most other profiles. Problem I have is despite effort in looking, I'm out of work and have no money to get out there doing things to get better pictures.

    It's probably not the best time for me to even be thinking about dating but I've had some success already (rubbish to what you guys can achieve, two F-closes in 6 months) but both where at best average looking girls with no potential for anything more.

    I know I can do better if I only know how, I know most of my messages don't get ignored as virtually every woman I message at least views my profile, I get a few messages back from about 20% before it fizzles out and around 5% go further.

    I've tried short profiles, long profiles, funny profiles (at least I think so) and can't see any increase in my success rates.

    I know pictures are a big thing here and I know I'm obviously doing something wrong with my messaging despite what I've read but surely there is something more I can do in the mean time?

    that's not bad, I'm only farking about 3 new girls every 6 months (but I usually fark each one a lot more than once and I don't date multiple girls at the same time)

    about the profile pics, have a friend take some for you.

    btw the thing most guys get wrong taking pictures is that they don't take enough of them to get a really good pic. honestly you'll probably have to take the same picture at least 10 times to get the desired appearance for a profile pic.

    as for messaging online, if you're getting any dates at all from it, you're doing pretty good. (personally I hate online dating because my text game isn't near as good as my "in person" game)

    Both where a complete disaster to be honest, both only one nighters and they were not as advertised on their profiles, it was more a case of there where no witnesses and I had needs.

    Sorry that might get me some flak on here but I want a higher quality of girl....

    I'd love to go out and sarge but I'm broke at the moment, so online seems like my only option...

    nah, I understand completely. not every girl is relationship material.

    why is it that no one ever thinks about day game as an option? its far cheaper than going to night clubs, and less of a hassle than online dating.

    and like I said, meeting any girls at all from online dating is a fair accomplishment.

    Meteora gave you some awesome advice which you should take.

    I am going to break down your post so I can address each issue.

    #1 Congrats on overcoming your medical issues. Everyone has setbacks in their life and you need to be commended for overcoming your health issues. I would suggest that you continue to get into shape as quickly as possible. A site like bodybuilding.com has lots of helpful articles on doing exactly that. Exercise and proper nutrition can make you look amazing in as little as 8 to 12 weeks with some effort. No, you don't need to pay for a gym membership because there are other ways to exercise for FREE.

    2/All cool that you want to re-connect with an ex. I would suggest that you never put all of your eggs in one basket. That's just a recipe for a let down. Improve yourself physically and groom yourself really well. Doing both works well with all girls including getting an ex-g/f back.

    3/ Dude, digital pics are free. You live in Liverpool which has lots of tourist areas. Go out, pretend to be a tourist in your own city. When you see an HB you tell her that it's your first time in Liverpool and you WANT them can take a pic of you. Get them to take multiple pics, better if they can take 10 or more because you never know which pic is going to look the best. This is all "free" so it costs you no money at all. It also helps you game girls at the very same time. Kill two birds with one stone.

    Now the money issue. Never date a gold digger but you also need money to live and women expect a guy they hang with to be reasonably employed. Your full time job right now should be searching for a job. Put in at least 4 to 6 hours to find employment. Even cheap dates cost some money. Your priority everyday should be :

    A/ Finding a job
    B/ Getting physically fit
    C/ Gaming girls

    Do it in that order. If you can do A and B then C will be easy, very, very easy.

    4/ That's great that you've had 2 f-closes in 6 months. Be positive and more will come.


    5/ I don't do online gaming but from what guys here have wrote about it, it tells me that a 20% return on your messages sent is VERY GOOD for online gaming, so you are definitely doing something right. So don't be discouraged, keep it up and be more playful in your messages and you'll increase your results. Be fun and flirty with the interactions.

    Just a few changes in your life and everything will change for the positive. Good luck bro. Don't let the tough times keep you down. The tough times don't last but tough people do. I have full confidence in you and that your life is headed in a better direction.

    I used to hate having my picture taken as well, but when you have other people in the picture it draws the attention off of you a lot, and the more attractive the girl in your picture is, the more she draws the attention. I also just found one facial expression that I use whenever I have my picture taken and if you do that you really can't go wrong.

    Not the most helpful info, I know, but it worked for me so I figure it doesn't hurt to throw it out
    If i get a guy some a$$, he gets it for a day; if i teach him how to get it for himself, he's tappin forever

    Hey Vidar,

    I don't think you can DHV through having some professionally taken pictures! If you want to do online dating and you need pictures for it, simply look for ServiceSeeking.com or Freelancer.com and find a cheap photographer who can take some descent pictures of you.

    That said, portraits normally don't work in online dating sites so maybe take a friend of yours and get them to stand next to you or make you laugh etc.
