Putting Your Best Face Forward
First and foremost, your profile picture is the thing that potential dates are going to see on classified ad sites. That’s something you need to remember when choosing the picture that you put up as your main pic, though we need to really stress that it doesn’t matter how attractive you are: it’s all about your body language.
Your profile pic is the first impression you’ll make.
You don’t have to be gorgeous in order to attract ladies. Most of us are pretty average, but we still have great luck when it comes to picking up women online. It’s mostly a matter of knowing your angles, and always, always smiling.
Your personal classified ad picture is important all the same, though. This will give the ladies looking at your profile their first impression of you, and that’s why we always suggest looking upbeat and pleasant. Don’t throw a campy smile out there, but definitely do smile. That will make you that much more approachable to women on dating sites.
Work on your angles.
Again, you don’t have to be a model to know how to work what you’ve been born with. It’s all about angles and lighting–and smiling, of course!–when it comes to taking the perfect profile pic.
Don’t stick to the bathroom mirror selfies. They’re one of the worst options for getting a good picture because you’ll usually look washed out and older than you actually are. Also, it reeks of immaturity, and if you’re going to take a selfie, do it with your computer camera instead. It’ll make you look that much sexier, especially if this is for your sex classified ad picture.
Pose with your stuff, but not stupidly.
Don’t take pictures around wads of cash. Instead, take pictures with possessions that actually reek of value, like a nice car or in front of your nice house. Things like that will attract more women, and make them that much more interested in you.
The reason that ladies want to see you posing with your things is that they want to know that you’re the kind of man that’s a catch. They want to see that you’re the kind of man that has everything in his life in order, and that’s the kind of man that most women ultimately want to be with.
Vacation pictures are a good choice.
If you’ve done a lot of traveling, make sure to include some of those images on your profile. Those kinds of pictures can show the ‘what-ifs’ that might happen in the forming relationship you make with these women.
The other thing about vacation pictures is that they ultimately reek of money. While you might be looking for something long-term, if you’re ever just looking for a fast hookup, women that are after men that have a lot of money can be a fun change to your usual evening routine…and they’re usually incredibly easy to get a shag from.
Adult pictures are questionable.
While you might end up taking pictures for an adult classified ad picture at some point, we really do have to suggest that you don’t take pictures of your penis, or any sort of full-body nudity.
The reason for this is that we think it’s kind of classless. You want to leave some guesswork for these women, or otherwise, they’re already going to have seen all they wanted to see. It’s just not a good way to convince them that they want to see even more from you at the end of the day!
Another way to pose is with lovely ladies.
If you’re already surrounded by beautiful women in your pictures, that’s going to make the women on dating sites think that you’re a real catch. It’s going to make them think that you’re a casanova, and that’s the kind of thing that’s going to make them want to go out with you.
It doesn’t matter if you’re standing with your attractive friends, or if you’re surrounded by bridesmaids: post the pic if it looks good and it makes you look like you’re a popular guy. You’d be surprised what this sort of thing can accomplish on online classified sites.
Look like you’re having fun.
No matter what you do, shy away from any pictures that honestly make you look scraggly, old, dirty, or just plain sad. That’s not the kind of vibe that you want to post on sites when you’re looking for a fun date night.
Women are going to be attracted to men that look like they’re happy, successful, and like they actually love life. There are exceptions to this rule, of course, but for the most part, we’ve had great results where we’re smiling in our pictures, or otherwise looking like we’re having a good time. Your mileage may vary, but our numbers in our success simply don’t lie.
