First impressions in online dating really does count, as does honesty. Let’s face it when you trawl through pages of dating profiles, on whatever dating site you are a member of, most of us are drawn to the main profile picture first. Generally, its only quick glance which attracts the eye and encourages people to click and read on your profile.
Whether you think you are a super model lookalike, an average looking person or even not so average, beauty always will and always has been in the eye of the beholder. There is someone out there for everyone and you will need to make sure you profile images show you in the best light and highlight your best features.
If you add a doctored or fake image, ask yourself what happens if you really get on online and then have to meet; you will only face regret and anxiety wondering what will happen when you meetup or you may decide to run for the hills rather then face rejection. Put your self in their position, ask yourself how you would feel if you turned up having expectations of meeting the person you saw in their profile picture to be faced with someone completely different.
Honesty really is the best policy, all the nice liberal dogma about looks don’t matter, its what on the inside which count is all well and good (and in fact over the long term is probably true) but we all live in the real world and human nature is a very powerful thing. Above all we must have realistic aspirations.
