If there’s one thing worse than lockdown, it’s spending lockdown alone. For the foreseeable future, dating remotely is the way to go. Dating apps such as Tinder, Hinge, and Bumble, have seen a significant spike in users and activity as a result of lockdown. With everybody looking for love from home, it’s time to up your game.
In an endless pool of seemingly eligible bachelors and bachelorettes, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to stand out. If you’ve spent any amount of time on these apps, you’ve probably also seen some horrendous profile pictures. Your first profile picture is your only chance at making a good first impression, so it’s up to you to find a photograph that expresses your whole true self in the best light (pun intended!). More and more people are in search of a richer online dating experience, making it crucial to have a unique and comprehensive dating profile. This starts with some A-grade photographs! A blurry Snapchat selfie is really digging your own romantic grave.
We are living in an increasingly visual world, so it’s almost necessary for you to prioritise good quality images for yourself. Your smartphone has amazing features allowing you to take beautiful selfies, but these might get lost in the crowd. You want to portray parts of your life that don’t always get captured on film. A professional portrait photographer can help capture you in your element, expressing your passions and hobbies. High-quality images won’t just increase your swipes, but also improve the quality of your matches. A carefully curated profile that reflects your authentic self will help you match with like-minded people. While it may feel narcissistic to some, a photoshoot will demonstrate your commitment and seriousness to dating. Any veteran online dater will tell you: a fuller, more detailed, high-quality profile that represents your persona, is far more likely to find a real match.
