So I’m still exploring the online dating scene and while going through so many profiles, I’ve learned a few things. Unfortunately, physical attraction is a must. And with online dating you don’t have much wiggle room. Your profile picture speaks a million words!
So here are my rules for a good profile pic:
-No topless photos. At least not for your profile pic. And for other pictures if you’re at the beach I guess it’s ok….but just one. And only if you have a smoking body.
-No selfies where you can see the camera in the mirror. If you’re going to post a selfie, do it so the camera can’t be seen. If you are unable to take a picture like that, practice.
-No pictures with other guys. How am I supposed to know which dude you are if you’re with a bunch of other dudes?
-No pictures with other girls. It gives a bad impression. Either you’re a womanizer or hung up on an ex.
-No sunglasses. Sunglasses cover up half your face and can pretty much make any guy look hot. Especially aviators. It’s deceiving.
-No hats. I’m sorry I need to know if you have some hair or not.
-No off in the distance far away shots. I don’t care how artistic the sunset is while you’re in the background. I can’t see what you look like!
-And the number one rule- SMILE! The duck face isn’t attractive on females and it’s definitely not attractive on males either. Nor is the zoolander look.
I know this makes me sound like a superficial person…but I’m really not! Personality trumps looks any day. But unfortunately I can’t get to your personality if I can’t get past the first profile picture….
Today I couldn’t make it to my CrossFit box and the wod was a 5km run on top of additional strength work I needed to do…
So I went to my work gym…ran 3 miles on interval sprints (to make things more interesting and test what speeds I could get up to without falling on my face) and then I did leg presses because there was no squat rack. So strange.
In the hour that I was there, I saw a guy do his weights in jeans, a guy do 10 minutes of dumb bell curls and leave, and a guy wear his full sweatpants and hoodie outfit to get a good sweat on while he ran the treadmill.
Give me back my bumper plates and real squat rack please.
