Guys need to love your outsides before they can love your insides.
It’s just how men are wired. It is what it is, and if you want to date a man, you need to dress for men. If you want a romantic relationship, where you are loved and adored by your dream man, you need to look the part.
It doesn’t have to do so much with age and with having model looks, either.
It’s about being the best you can be, and dressing for men.
Unfortunately, too many women think they know what they are doing, but they aren’t getting results online and when I look at their online dating profiles, I realize why.
Online dating is becoming such a big way for people to meet - and so those who have great online dating photos - and who present themselves well on the date - are going to do the best in this arena.
Here are some tips below to as you prepare to get your online photos taken.
Also consider my “Online Dating" package, which is on Summer Special only through Aug. 24, 2018, for $108. Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will sign you up! If you are reading this post after the Summer Special ends, there will be a different fee, although the course will be the same. The package will give you all the tools to succeed online.
Here are a few tips to get you started:
Be your best self. Dress and primp like you were going to a wedding, reunion or a fancy event. This should also be how you dress on a date with a guy that you like.
What you shouldn’t do is post a photo from 10 years ago or more and expect the guy to be easygoing about it.
(Well, he may be easygoing on the outside, but it will bother him, as I have heard this time and time again from men).
The small things matter in the photos and on your dates.
Think of the things you might do when you are going to a special event. We may not do these things every day just to go to work, but we will do them for a special occasion, and you should also do it for your online dating photos because you want a big bang for your buck from these photos.
The little extras I refer to above can include: face waxing, eyebrow shaping and any other hair removal, and a facial or some face care routine that leaves your skin bright and healthy looking, not dry and dull.
Also, try to get a fake tan in the days leading up to the photo shoot as the bronze look is very sexy. If you can’t get a tan, have the make-up artist give you a sun-kissed bronze look, which comes across as sultry in photos.
I would definitely leave the day of your photo shoot to the make-up pros - ask for recommendations for good makeup artists in your area.
Have them put on false eyelashes - they always add to the look and make the photos come across as super glamorous and special. If you can find a makeup artist who uses airbrushing techniques for foundation, go for that- airbrushing coverage is very stunning.
In terms of looks that seem to transfer well, there are variations based on each individual woman, but I do find that nude or light colors on the lips go well with a more heavily made up eye look. When you do the heavily made up eye, stay away from darker colors on the lips, like reds, because it is simply too much.
Form-fitting dresses and V-neck tops (show some skin but not too much) with tight skirts (but not too tight) work great. Heels are a must for the full length body photos.
Colors, I find, are very individual. Many women look good all in black, while others find they need to add a little color or else they look too drab in simple black.
Make sure you smile and giggle on the day of the shoot. If the photographer asks for an artsy shot, I would try to steer him away from it. Dating photos should be friendly, smiling, upbeat.
Three photos are all you need overall. You can even get away with two photos, a headshot and a body shot. I like two body shots, though, because guys do want to know what one’s full body looks like. Many men have told me they have gotten very burned by women’s photos. When they see two full body shots that look good, they are happy they are truly getting the full picture, so to speak.
