An old college buddy and I recently compared notes and identified seven types of photos that make us swipe left: 1. Trust me ladies, you don't want to be in the background of your pet (cat, dog, iguana, other). But a guy is going to start wondering how he can possibly fit into this complicated love triangle. Again, being visual, guys want to have multiple points of reference; that's just the way we are. One is left scratching one's head, so unless this speaks to you ... Sometimes it feels like the foundation of your social life is so strong that you no longer find the opportunity to meet new and exciting people.
Sunglasses We all have sunglasses; they serve an important function and can look quite stylish. And the more unconventional the solitary photo, the more head scratching will occur. Grainy Photos Digital devices these days have such amazing resolution and are so foolproof that even the most inexperienced photographer can produce a nice clear pic, right? if you take a new photo of an old photo, like one born from a negative (think dark room) then it might well turn out grainy. We want to have some sense of the female figure we're considering dating. Throw a barbecue or party in which guests bring a friend that no one in the group knows.
Its no secret that most of us single middle-aged divorced guys have checked out dating sites.
I mean they're pushed on us around every electronic corner. But, being from Mars, guys are more visual and everyone knows that right?
This time last year saw a 94 per cent increase in people singing up compared to their daily average.'In my experience, selfies on dating sites either involve the guy snapping a quick picture of himself as he loads his profile (no effort made) or stripping off in a desperate attempt to show off his buff body while trying out a moody male model look (far too much effort made).However, when the photo of your perspective date has half of her face covered by a giant pair of shades, red flags begin to appear. It's probably true that one good photo of pretty much everyone exists -- could this be that ONE? It also would be from another time and place and likely bear little resemblance to the current submitter of said photo. "A few extra pounds" means vastly different things to different people! All I can tell you is that we're hard-wired that way and it makes us want to swipe left ... Bizarre Random What ever happened to, "put your best foot foremost"? Alternatively, tag along with a friend the next time their office has a company picnic or function -- this is a great way to meet somebody who you know is responsible enough to hold down a career and who you can 'check out' with an acquainted friend before you agree to a date.Guys will wonder if they are in fact strategically selected props utilized for concealment. Or is she simply just too uninterested to include a selection of photos? Alternately, it could legitimately be a recently taken photo which just happens to be extremely fuzzy. So when a woman has many photos exclusively of just her head, which may indeed be attractive, we are still very much left wondering about the rest of the package. In perhaps a bizarre misinterpretation of this old adage, one particular woman included a photo of her feet as one of her several dating photos. They should wait to divulge details later.'I prefer it when women wait a bit before revealing too much about their past relationships or children and let us get to know them as an individual first,' says Chris Hines, who met his girlfriend on Plenty Of Fish.'In the end it’s about you as a couple and if you find out that you're suited then the other person will probably be more accepting of the rest.Too soon though and you might not get the chance to show how awesome you are.For women, a smile isn’t strictly better: she actually gets the most messages by flirting directly into the camera, like the center and right-hand subjects above.
