Nude profile picsfrom dateing sights
It seems to be how we humans roll, especially when trying to complete an online dating profile that’s horribly awkward to begin with.
Also, big thanks to a bunch of friends for chiming in on the topic.
And BIG thanks again to Nate for being a model-for-an-hour.
I’m pretty sure he would never post these photos on an online dating site.
Trust us, we think it’s super cool that you take care of yourself and stay in shape. The Where’s Waldo that you’ve traveled to the mountains! Trust us, anything will be better than the awkward unidentifiable blonde hair on your shoulder. The Shirtless Just as your mother probably told you at age 3 — “Son, get your clothes back on!! If we meet you at a party or a wedding or a coffee shop, I’m pretty positive that you are always going to be fully dressed for that first impression. And I know that many of you No-Shave-November fans are in it for a good cause. The Beer Fanatic (Ok, I thought it’d be nice to include at least one decent photo of my friend, GQ-model, and extremely-good-sport, Nate.) But this final one is just a little reminder that your online dating profile should be advertising , not your favorite beer.
And if sports or working out are big parts of your life, then awesome — post that classic photo of you and your buds crawling through the mud to the finish line or playing volleyball or biking in that triathlon. But the sweaty guy pics and your bench press number can, um, stay at the gym. The Man Without A Face Ok, we totally get that you often wear sunglasses or hats when you are outside. Cheers to hipster apparel and protecting your skin and eyes from those harmful UV rays, right? So it seems reasonable for you to throw half-naked photos all over your profile is a wee bit perplexing, to say the least. The Hunter Bloody dead animals that you shot and killed and hold up as a trophy for the world to know that you know how to hunt? But unless it’s November, or unless you’re a super hipster who knows how to rock a mustache (and even that can be debatable), it’s probably best to play it safe and either go all (beard) or nothin’ (nothin’). I’m all for enjoying drinks with friends, and posting a photo or two to document said enjoyment is NBD.
(Ok, it’s a stretch, but I get it.) Remember though that this is our of you. We just want to know that you have some wheels to drive us to dinner. The Ex-Girlfriend Crop Double points if Photoshop was used to blur or blacken the ex out.
And where do first impressions take place in real life? So step away from the shower, hand your friend a camera, and let us see you in your best non-bathroom light. The Macho, Macho Man Sorry to break it to you guys, but we aren’t looking for tickets to the “gun show” in your profiles. But photos upon photos of vast landscapes and a teeeeeny tiny you (if you’re in there at all)? But otherwise, focus on the photos that have in focus, and save the rest for a little photo slide show on date night #3 at your place. The Car I’m pretty sure that every girl’s dating profile does not include a photo of her with her car. Triple points if you crop out girls on either side of you. I don’t care if it’s the most flattering photo of you ever.
But one thing is universal: there will always be gross creepers who try to get into your pants by saying something disgusting.Yes, yes, I know that we girls have our own set of cliche photos (hello, feet in the sand? Now before you all start emailing me about being Judgy Mc Judgerson, please know right off that this is of intentions.
