OK

Whether you like it or not, your profile picture is the most important element of your online dating profile. When a woman sees your profile in her search results, only this picture influences her decision to visit your profile or pay attention to other men. The same applies to the situations when she gets a message from you or sees you in her Matches.

Quality, quality, quality

Guys who are lazy to take and upload quality profile pictures in 2020 are destined to die alone. Girls like good photos. It's the axiom. Never use your last-minute selfie as a profile picture on dating sites.

Instead, spend 15 minutes on taking a quality photo. If you can’t do it by yourself, ask friends for help or pay a professional photographer for several good headshots.

Remember that a quality profile picture helps you stand out from those thousands of guys who are lazy to take good photos and make women reply to your messages.

One is not enough

For an unknown reason, most men think that one profile picture taken on their web-cam is more than enough to attract ladies online. Sorry to disappoint you, but it’s not how it works, especially if you are searching for love on the international dating sites. Spend some time on creating a memorable photo gallery. It will be perfect if this gallery shows other members your daily routine – your job, your hobbies, your lifestyle, and maybe even your man cave. Use photos to tell women your story and give them a taste of your life.

Checklist for your online dating photo gallery

Here is a short checklist you can use choosing photos to include in your gallery.

1. Your photo should be well lit. Girls want to clearly see your face.

2. You should smile at least in two of your pictures. Women find too serious guys tough and boring. If you want to win women over, smile in your pictures.

3. The background in your picture should be clean and tidy. Try to take your photos in beautiful surroundings. Viewing your pictures, a woman should aspire to be there with you. Beautiful landscapes behind you like beaches, mountains, and sunsets always work.

4. You should be well-dressed (don’t confuse with over-dressed). Women like handsome guys. So be handsome. Black or white shirt combined with jeans will increase the number of messages you receive from women online.

I hope that these pieces of advice will improve your chances of getting a girlfriend. Good luck!
