Selfies: Master the art Whether or not you think selfies are embarrassing, they do impact online dating profiles, for better or worse.
Female profiles with selfies get 4% more messages, while guys took an 8% hit.
"There was no master plan for doodles at that point," says doodler-in-chief Ryan Germick.
Don’t get too excited, your not in the end zone yet.
“People who want to date women, whether that’s men or women, seem to be more concerned about authenticity and is this person heavily filtering this picture,” says Braley.
But for men, she wonders if they are lacking skills in the art of the selfie.
Forget your friends Including your besties in your profile pics is also a big no-no.
First off, would they approve of being outed as your sidekick?
Zoosk predicts “Lumbersexual” with be among 2015’s buzz words, replacing “basic.” But if you’re a guy, you’re going to want to walk the talk, because men with outdoor photos on their profiles received 19% more messages than those who didn’t.
And secondly, isn’t there some sort of waiver they should sign?
But the hard fact is that people who use group shots including themselves see 42% fewer messages than those who fly solo.
But they can take control of the dates by saying “dinner,” “drinks,” or “lunch” and see 73% more replies to their profiles.
Regardless of your gender, spelling counts, with “teh,” “ur,” “cuz,” “im” and “u” dinging daters with 13% fewer replies.
And no one is on it around between 2 and 3 p.m.—so get back to work.
