5 Things You Should Know Before You Start Online Dating
1. Your Online Persona Matters
If you’re looking for something serious then you may want to pay attention to a few very important online profile guidelines.
Let’s start by talking about photos. Shirtless photos or revealing clothes aren’t a good way to attract a quality partner, especially if you’re looking for something serious. Your photos should represent who you really are as a person. I always say include a full body photo, activity, at least one where you’re more casual; and one where you’re dressed up. They say a picture is worth a “thousand “words, well if you ask me, online, a picture is worth a “million”. Choose photos that really give a sense of what you look like, who you are, and what you are about.
Secondly, you want to be absolutely honest about what kind of relationship you’re looking for on your profile. If you want a casual relationship, write that. If you want something more serious, then definitely write that. Think of it this way, in order for people to know what you want, guess what? You have to tell them! It also helps as a screening tool to get some of those “players” out of the way.
