You might have asked yourself this question? Sometimes, it can be tricky to answer it. But, the fact is that your profile picture is the first impression that you give the world, and the one you choose will say a lot about you, whether you realize it or not. Personally, I have been spending a lot of time on the online dating sites, and I have noticed a few things when it comes to the profile pictures.
This does not apply only for dating purposes, let take an example the reason why you are on Facebook or Twitter; you may be on the social media for the purpose of interacting with your family or friend. Then here, your profile picture should a photo that people can be able to recognize you. Nevertheless, if you are for business reasons, then you need to consider many other things. Your profile picture establishes how individuals perceive you; therefore, keep this in mind before you upload your profile picture on your dating site.
When you uploaded a photo that you were smiling directly at the camera
I have started my list with this type of a photo which is also my profile photo on my online dating site. When an individual profile picture looks like he or she is looking at you while smiling, this says a lot. This type of photo lead individuals to believe that you are confident, happy and outgoing. It makes many people feel that they can easily connect with you.
The embarrassing photo
Fortunately, it does not appear as profile photo to many people. But, whenever I come across it as someone’s profile photo, I am usually left speechless. This is a type of photo which will make you feel embarrassed for the person who uploaded it every time you come across it. This is type of profile photo that will make you ask yourself WHY did that person post it? Having this type of photo as your profile picture on the dating site, make individuals question your common sense and sanity.
The photo which has random body part
Whether it is your ears, legs, finger, eyes just to mention a few, this photo can mean different things. Either these parts are amazing or your face is not attractive for other people to see it or you are mysterious. Anyway, when people do not see your face they will always wonder WHY?
The photo of a certain celebrity
Sometimes I wonder why a person can use a certain celebrity photo to be his or her profile picture instead of using their own photo. Here, people would view you like you really like to be associated with a certain celebrity or you like that person so much in such a way that you forgot even to show people how you look. Using celebrity photo is a little creepy or weird.
The company Logo as your profile photo
When you have uploaded this type of a photo in the online dating site know that you are lost. You are there looking for a date for this type of picture means that person is a member of a certain social community and he or she and the purpose is to connect with other professionals. This is only the best for those people who are trying to network but not dating.
The photo of your child
This kind of photo shows that you are online to connect with your friends or family. Choosing this type of photo as your profile photo on the online site is not a good idea since this site is not for connecting with your friends and relative it is for dating only.
The photo of fish/dog/ cat or any other random pet photo
This is the absolute worst photo on the dating site. I pity those who upload their pet’s picture as their profile pictures. It is okay you love your pet, but posting this type of photo shows that you have very little outlook on life. They can be cute but they should be uploaded on other places.
The mysterious photo
This is the type of photo which shows only half of your face. Hence, making you appear mysterious, setting this type of a photo makes people to be curious to find out more about you.
The photo you upload to your online dating site means a lot about you. Therefore, take your time and set a photo that will make people to be curious about you.
