PSA for Men on Dating Apps: Let A Woman Take Your Photo
I have one question for young (20-something) men on dating apps.
Do you have no one to take your photo?
A friend, perhaps? Your sister? Your mom?
Too many men are completely incapable of taking good pictures of themselves.
Here are 5 woman-repelling types of pictures that you’ll find way too often on dating apps.
The bad-angle selfie
No woman wants to see so far into your nostrils that we might see your brain. We also don’t want to see your forehead taking up two-thirds of the frame.
If you are going to take a selfie, at least try to use a neutral, true-to-life angle.
The toilet in the background pic
Need I say more?
Too many bathroom-mirror-pics where an open and often dirty toilet is photobombing in the background.
Not a good look, fellas.
The gym pic
The bicep curl. The shirtless flex. The headphones-in, arms bulging, I-clearly-work-out-and-I’m-buff pic.
Other guys might think this is what women want to see, but most women find this type of picture kind of douche-y.
By all means, go to the gym and stay fit — but stay humble.
Humility is still sexy.
The “funny face” pic
Nobody wants to see your tongue, or double-chin, or serial-killer stare.
Do you honestly think women see a picture of your face scrunched up and your tongue out and think, “Wow, he seems like a hardworking, reliable, smart, great guy to date!”
If you’re older than 14 and still posting silly selfies publically…I don’t know what to tell you.
The bro pic
The pic with 4 or more guys all standing around together with their arms over each other’s shoulders.
