Today is another one of those days as the fine folks over at online dating site and app Zoosk have put together a rock solid list of tips when it comes to how to choose your online dating photo.
Based on their data, here’s what they discovered (and just in case there are any ladies reading this – I know you’re out there – I left in the tips for women as well)…
1. Don’t wear a hat.
People like to see as much of you as possible—your whole face and even those lovely locks, so show off a little and ditch the hat.
2. Use a full-body photo.
Including at least one full-body photo in your dating profile can get you up to 203% more incoming messages than the average.
3. Got a favorite sports team? Get your jersey out.
People wearing a jersey, t-shirt of their favorite team, or sports outfit in their photos get 32% more incoming messages and 17% more responses.
4. Add a vacation pic.
Adding a vacation photo to your profile can get you up to 6% more messages.
5. Ladies, snap those selfies.
Women who have a selfie photo get 4% more messages. Guys, not so much. Men who have a selfie photo get 8% fewer messages than the average.
6. Fellas, use an outdoor shot.
Men who add an outdoor photo to their profile get 19% more messages while women who add an outdoor photo get 40% fewer.
7. Don’t take a photo in your car.
Photos of people in front of a car or motorcycle, or inside of a car resulted in fewer likes.
