It happens to the best of us-you're signing up for a dating app and you get to that step where it's time to add your photos when you realize that. Online dating is intimidating, but don't let that stop you from embracing who you are in your photos.
Although it may seem counter-intuitive, a study conducted by OkCupid revealed that men who are looking away from the camera in their profile picture have higher odds of succeeding with women on online dating sites.
Be selective when picking them - only upload photos that benefit your image in some way. Try your best to capture your passions and lifestyle through the photos on your profile.
These types of photos demonstrate that you have an interesting life with fulfilling hobbies. Include a few photos of yourself with friends in a fun environment. If possible, choose pictures where the attention is focused on you. These types of photos show demonstrate higher value and act as 'social proof'. Also, don't upload too many of these photos, as it may be a little intimidating to some women - just 1 or 2 will do the trick.
If you are alone and in your bedroom for every one of your photos, it may convey the idea that you are a loner who never leaves the house.
