When Online Dating, Stand Out in the Right Way
Most men who try online dating would love to stand out, but they do it in all the wrong ways.
To get the most out of your online dating experience, the first thing to consider is your profile picture.
It's the first impression you're giving a girl, long before she ever reads your profile, and it can be a deal-breaker if you aren't careful.
Your picture should be a clear shot of your face, taken in a well-lit space, and you should be smiling.
Go for a warm, inviting, genuine expression, and don't try to fake slimness with the camera angle - you'll end up looking weird.
When you make your username, choose something that's either neutral or that expresses something positive about you.
Lots of guys try too hard to be clever, or they use words that are sexually suggestive, negative, or desperate.
Don't spend too much time agonizing over a clever name, since it won't matter after that brief first impression.
And, finally, don't use self-deprecating humor.
You might be tempted to make negative jokes about yourself, but it's a bad habit that will make girls assume you have low self-esteem.
You've got way more good qualities than bad, so focus on those.
