Smart Tips for Online Dating Canada Profile Pictures
In the world of online dating, the one thing that prompts most singles looking for a relationship to hit the ‘send a message’ button is a profile picture. Although we would agree that most online daters usually resolve to very flirtatious (or so it seems) profile pictures on online dating sites to attract other singles, however, we cannot help but get attracted to the ones that really catch our attention. If you are single and are looking for a serious relationship, here are some smart tips that how to meet guys in Canada for finding your perfect date:
Make eye contact: Statistics show that most singles that upload profile pictures in which they stare right at the camera, so as to make a direct eye contact with those looking at the picture tend to attract more hits and messages. As against this, looking away from the camera may amount to a beautiful picture but does not reveal your interest in the onlooker. Such as picture might make you seem distant and reserved and is not a good choice for a dating profile picture. Pictures that have eye contact make you seem interested and friendly.
Smile: Looking serious is frankly a big turn off. A smiling profile picture, on the contrary shows that ‘you won’t bite’, are friendly and approachable. This will not only help you attract like-minded singles but also reveal a positive and lighter side of you and help you attract similar singles interested in dating or looking for a relationship.
Flirt (but only a bit): Flirting seems to work quite well on online dating sites. But when it comes to choosing your profile picture, be a little cautious. You do not want to send out the wrong vibes or attract the wrong people. While it is okay to appear a little flirtatious in your profile picture, going overboard might make you seem very frivolous.
Abstain from pornographic profile pictures: Nude/semi nude or pornographic pictures show that you are desperate for a physical relationship and are not serious about finding a good dating partner. Watch out! This may attract sex predators!
Avoid bathroom mirror shots: Dude, seriously, that is old!! Bathroom shots taken of oneself with the flash reflecting in the mirror is pass. Think of more innovative ideas to click yourself!
Use a ‘present day’ picture: What good is a ten years older picture of you in which you looked younger (and probably slimmer!!) when you are looking for a real date in present day? Do not give out an incorrect impression about yourself. Aging is a natural process. Accept it and let genuine people get attracted to who you really are now.
Here’s hoping that you will find these tips useful. So go ahead and put up your bests shot. You never know, your perfect date might just ‘hot poke’ you!
