The Right Dating Photo

Is it fair for someone to post "fake" pictures of themselves on an Internet personals site? "Fake," in this context, doesn't necessary mean that the photo isn't them. It can simply mean that they're wearing a wig, far too much makeup, had the image retouched, or a hundred other tricks and gimmicks to make their picture appear more desirable.

Looking around the web, one can easily find photo services that deal in helping singles post the perfect photo(s) on the dating site of their choice. The range of services varies, so shop around to find the one that fits your needs. However, there should be limits to how far you're willing to go to look your best. The last thing you want is to meet your potential partner in real life and look absolutely nothing like your profile photo.

A common trick employed by many people is to post an old photo. This is definitely something to avoid, especially if you're in your 40s and posting 20-year-old photos. Another trick, used by women, is to take provocative photos while wearing caked-on makeup and pushup bras. This may attract suitors initially, but it's for all the wrong reasons. Any guys checking out your profile have one thing on their mind – and it's not your IQ or job.

It is important to look your best when posting a dating photo, but there are simply ways to accomplish this. The first thing you need to remember is that the goal is not to look like the person you want to be, it's to look like the person you are. You want to come across like the best possible "you." To do this, some minor touchups, makeup, hairstyles, outfits, etc, are encouraged, but keep it to a minimum. In reality, nothing sells a photo better than a clean image and a warm smile. Singles come to internet matchmaking sites looking for other people – real and approachable.
