Because when you eventually meet, you don’t want your date’s first thought to be how much better you looked on the internet!
Whilst group shots show you have friends, they can also be really misleading.
The only real differences are the sheer volume of potential dates in one place, and the fact that you know a lot more about someone than you normally would before you first begin talking.
The second important thing to realise about internet dating is just how damaging that romantic notion of ‘the one’ can be.
It might not sound very romantic, but you can’t argue with stats and figures and following a set of guidelines will probably help you feel more comfortable when sending your first message.
Netspeak is the main culprit when it comes to unsuccessful first mails.
Online dating gives you a bit of an advantage in that you can strategically plan that first message so it hits home with a bit of a punch.
Unlike an everyday face to face meeting where the words just tumble from your mouth in no apparent order.
So why is it that so many guys and girls (yes girls too) fail miserably in avoiding the move from the Inbox to the trash can?
Extensive research into online dating statistics show that there are some set rules that we all need to follow.
There is no point attracting a potential date, only to create immediate disappointment when your suitor realises you’re not the person in the photograph he or she was actually attracted to! If you choose three good photos, and one which isn’t so flattering, someone who has never met you before might see the one less attractive shot, and assume the good shots are misleading.
Think carefully about the person you are trying to attract, before using topless or bikini shots.
