Meeting someone online is probably the safest method of dating.
I say this because you have the option to check out everything about them before that first date, which is something you can’t do if you meet someone in a bar or club.
These photos create the most conversations because they break the ice.
Include your most sociable interests in your profile ..your solitary passions. For example, if you love film, mention the cinema, not the fact you recently lost an entire weekend to Netflix.
Relationship psychologist Honey Langcaster-James says: “Look straight into the camera and smile showing your teeth – this says open, friendly, healthy and confidence.” A recent study of the most popular profiles on dating sites showed 88 per cent are making eye contact with the camera in their profile picture.
If you can’t see their Facebook page or if their dating profile only has 1 photo then it is okay to ask to see a few more.
I personally will never meet up with anyone if I haven’t had a good look at their photos.
This isn’t being shallow at all, it’s simply reducing the chances of being conned into meeting someone who is 50 lbs heavier than their photo or is in any way trying to pass themselves off as better looking than they really are.
You can spot a fake profile a mile off; it’s really easy.
