Ladies, Ever Wonder How You Can Improve Your Profile?
How can you get more people to read your profile. Want to up the quality of men that say hi?

Hi ladies! If you’ve been on an online dating site for a while and have yet to find that special someone or you’ve just joined then this is for you. We’re going to give you the scoop on what works and what doesn’t. We want to show you how to make your profile as attractive as you can to the widest selection of men possible.  That way it’s within your power to choose who you want to date.

Let’s start with your images. Think of your photos as the cover of your autobiography. If a picture is worth a 1000 words then a well-chosen image can open an abundance  of conversation with that special someone. We recommend taking your images outdoors. Morning or evening light makes for some great shots. Regardless of where you take your images make sure you have a friend take them for you.

Your main profile image should be a clear headshot. This image appears in many places on the site like in search results and next to every message you send. Make sure this picture is your best. Often there are only a few seconds to grab a guy’s attention. If he can’t see your face he might pass you by.

In the online dating world one just isn’t enough. In fact, it’s been proven that women with 10 pictures of them receive 8 times as many messages. That means leaving out the photos of you with your twenty girlfriends or the ones with the cats. Instead, choose photos where you are the star. If you already have your full length shot and head shot covered go ahead and add a few more photos of family and friends to show off your social side.

Post images that were taken in the last six months. Online dating really is a tool to facilitate meeting that special someone. With that in mind everything you post on your profile should be up to date and reflect the real and current you.

Don’t use professional photos. Although we may think we look the best in professional shots, in fact, the cute and casual look will bring you the most success online.

Show your best side. Photos with tons of skin and the pouty facial expressions will attract guys that are looking for something casual and will turn away the good guys looking for something special like you. You want to appear cute, approachable and relaxed in your photos. These kinds of qualities will attract the right kind of guys. What about a picture of you playing tennis, running a marathon or riding a bike? Show potential suitors your energetic side.

If you are not the athletic type show off your interests instead.  You want your images to say “Wow, this girl is up to some cool stuff in her free time”.
It’s important to change your profile picture every few weeks especially if you are receiving fewer quality messages. Sometimes the images that we think are the best actually aren’t as appealing to members of the opposite sex.
