4 Rules For Choosing Profile Pics That Will Attract The Best Guys

Love

Trust us.

So you'd like to take your search for love online.

The only problem is, you don't know where to begin!

As part of an ongoing series of online dating advice videos, dating coach and YourTango Expert Julie Spira describes what makes a perfect profile picture.

Nobody teaches you how to make the most attractive online profile, after all, online dating is still pretty new. It's not like our parents met on Tinder and can share their wisdom! So often we have to learn from trial and error. The good news is, we can learn from other people's errors and start out with success.

 

Here are three rules everyone should follow, in order to draw men in with your most attractive selfies.

1. Have just a few photos and only your best.

Julie says that you should have between three to five photographs uploaded to your profile including a primary shot, an activity shot and a full body shot. That way the men can see your figure and your gorgeous face, and also get an idea of something you really enjoy doing (like skiing or paiting, etc).

 

2. Let the guys tell you which ones they like best.

After all, they are the ones you are trying to attract. And while a bathroom selfie might seem super sexy to you, to them it might just come across as desperate.

 

3. Show your eyes!

They say the eyes are the windows to the soul. Whether that's true of not, your eyes are one of your most expressive features. Don't hide them behind a pair of sunglasses!

 

4. Don't try to show too much depth in your photos.

Guys aren't going to be attracted to photos that are too artsy, too dark, too bright, too posed, too goofy or even too sexy.

When it comes down to it, guys just like to see photos of you on a typical day, doing the things you love.
