    Default Questions about profile pics

    I have a few questions about what kinds of pictures to post especially the main picture.

    I normally wear glasses so I'm wondering if I should keep my glasses on or take them off or maybe mix it up and have some with them on and some with them off? Most importantly should I have them on or off for the main profile picture?

    Also, should I be smiling and if so for all of them or just the main picture. I don't want to look like a psycho killer but I also don't want to look like a goof or someone who takes himself too seriously.

    I have read that you should not look into the camera and that you should sort of look away. I've also read that it's good to have a picture of you sleeping! Apparently that shows your vulnerable side although I suspect you could achieve the same effect by having a picture of yourself holding a cat.

    Also, any other tips or recommendations for pictures would be appreciated. I don't travel to foreign countries so pictures of me in some exotic land are out(unless I did photo shop but I won't stoop to that anyway). Also, out for me are tons of pics with me with hot girls. If I could do that I wouldn't be needing to to this in the first place. I do have one picture of me with an attractive young woman though so maybe that's good enough. The funny thing is she looked a lot better than the picture suggests(still not too bad though).

    Default Re: Questions about profile pics

    If you need glasses for doing just about anything, leave them on, because that's who you are. Sure, it might hurt you with some women but if you get a date with those same kinds of women while wearing glasses they might think you were lying to them.

    You want to present your best self, while still being honest.

    As far as first pictures go, I have gotten the best results from me doing something and looking away from the camera. But still showing my full body.

    I'm a creative type of person, so my first picture that I like to use is generally a little doctored to reflect that. Such as:
    https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...4486840&type=3

    It shows me adventuring, which is something that I love to do. It could definitely be better, but I haven't saved up enough for a real camera yet. But it still gets the job done for me because it's interesting, and it's me.

    The next shot I use is me smiling, generally by myself, but the one I'm currently using is with a much older lady in the shot as well. A good friend and on my birthday. Head shots are the way to go for the second picture.

    I've found that just doing the order of 'interesting' picture first and 'head shot' picture second I get significantly better results than same 'head shot' picture first and 'interesting' picture second. I don't know why. Maybe because interesting picture stands out and makes them curious to look at the others? But that's only my best guess.

    The third shot is always another activity shot. Currently I use one of me ballroom dancing. It's something that I'm passionate about, is interesting to women and they can definitely see themselves right there with me. I did notice much, much lower results when I used this exact same picture as my first picture rather than my third and keeping everything else the same. So most definitely have your first picture be you and only you. No exceptions.

    Lastly, there's the body shot. Where I am not wearing a shirt and actively doing something. Right now I'm using a picture where I'm doing a flip into a lake.


    If you can, use pictures that are from DSLR cameras. You can get that awesome Blur effect that helps you stand out, and the pixels won't be blurry. I'm about to get my hands on a hand-me-down DSLR and will be re-doing all of my photos once I do. But that's the general guidelines that I go by and even with crappy quality iPhone pictures, I still do okay. Typically a new girl a month through Tinder alone every month. Sometimes it's more, but I can always count on at least that one.

    But I'm excited to see how much better my results will be once I get a better quality camera =)


    On a last note, for Tinder: Always delete your Tinder profile and then start a new one after every month. I don't know why, but Tinder changed their algorithms. Now instead of seeing whoever matched you in the beginning of the pile they mix it up a little bit. Also, they try to create some kind of profile on you based on your swiping methods and how often you are swiped back. I read somewhere that they do this based only on how often you swipe right and how often people swipe you right. Assuming that the pickier you are, the higher up the 1-10 scale you are and only showing you to pickier people.

    But! A simple little hack to this is that newcomers are given a lot of priority! So about half of my matches that I get for a month will come from the first week of having created my profile.
