Profile Photos: The Dos and Don’ts

No duck faces allowed!

“Man, who would post that as their profile picture?”

We’ve all had this thought at one point or another as we scroll through a never-ending pool of single fish. But how do you know you’re not one of the thousands who fall victim to the curse of the bad profile photo?

It can be all too easy to write up a brief profile, upload a couple of photographs, and then hope that your perfect match will land in your inbox. But in order to give yourself the best chance of finding a meaningful relationship, you will probably have to work a little harder than that.

I have looked at literally thousands of profiles in my time, and so I feel I am well placed to suggest what profiles I think “work” — from a man’s perspective.
