Photo online dating profile
One of the biggest oh-no-nos of online dating is lying about or exaggerating your appearance and characteristics.
Photos that are more than five years old shouldn’t be anywhere near your profile — unless you have magical powers like Reese Witherspoon or Jared Leto and never age.
In fact, the largest difference was between women who wore red vs. To help out the fellas, we turned to Look Better Online, an online network of professional photographers that’s improved the profile pictures of thousands of singles.

We’d suggest having a combination of face, full-body, action, dressed up, dressed down, serious, and goofy shots.
The point is to give potential matches a peek into your personality, background, and interests.
