Pictures on dating
Toby Aiken, a professional freelance photographer based in Gloucestershire, says that having profile pictures is an essential step for two reasons.Firstly, ‘’whether we care to admit it or not, the first thing that we look at is appearance.’’ This is a sentiment echoed in our survey: 65% of our UK respondents said that photos are the part of a profile that most catches their attention when they’re looking online.Don't waste time with images of sunsets or anything else in the brief period of time you have."If there's one photo that's kind of questionable to them as far as attraction is concerned, they're on to the next person," she says.So what does make a good photo for dating sites and apps?

Lonely people all over the world have been known to go extreme lengths to find true love, but these incredible and funny Russian dating site profile pictures show just how far some of these people will really go.
The Internet has made finding love a lot less daunting then it used to be, but it’s a double edged sword – having more to reveal can be good OR bad, depending on what you post, and in Russia, it seems that anything goes in the world of online dating.
Ideally, the profile photo also should say something about your life: "Good photos show what you're passionate about and show your potential date what life could be like if they were dating you," says Spira.
That doesn't mean including other people in the picture."One of the biggest mistakes you can make is your first photo being you and a friend, or you and a group of friends," says el-Effendi.
The second reason profile pictures count for so much is that they are a really valuable way to back up the impression you have created in the written part of your profile.
