So without further ado, if one of my guy friends asked my advice on making a profile, here’s what I would suggest: 1. The last thing you want to do is have a girl see your picture, think your buddy next to you is really cute, and then get disappointed when she discovers it’s not his profile.
Smile in your profile picture I’ve seen quite a few profiles where the guy looks very sad, angry, or intimidating in the main picture (or sometimes all the pictures). Alternatively if she never saw your cuter buddy, she might still think you’re attractive and never experience a let down.
I can only respond to so many people, and actually meet with even less.
Chances are that there is a guy on the site with a comparable profile as yours, but with pictures that actually allow me to see what he looks like.
The point is that the guys who don’t get responses shouldn’t take it personally, chances are that if they approached me in real life, I’d gladly chat with them and maybe they would even be a better match for me.
So I apologize in advanced if my advice comes off as harsh or dismissive of the guys that have reached out to me.
As best as possible, your profile should be a reflection of yourself.
Even if nothing you list applies to me, this just seems very critical and confrontational.If I go out to a bar maybe one or two guys will approach me to strike up a conversation, which I’ll almost always engage in (unless they attempt some a-hole opener) because I’m a decent human being and open to engaging with other decent human beings. When I first started I wanted to respond to each person (unless they attempt some a-hole opener) because I’m a decent human being, and it seems decent to respond to another human being that reached out to you.Unfortunately it quickly became apparent that the logistics of this simply did not work out.In such a case the devil I know is better than the devil don’t.Things that can get in the way of me feeling like I know what you look like can be: *none of these are bad to include, but if all your photos fall into these categories, I’m moving on.
