STEP 3. YOUR PROFILE PICTURE
When you are first joining an online dating community, the most important thing that you can do is build up a good profile. Your profile is going to be the very first thing that people read to get an impression of you but also with most people, guys and girls the same will learn from an appearance.
It is important that you create a good profile but your page will get many more views if you upload a picture or two. Having a profile picture can make the best difference when looking for love or friendship online.
Why do some of the users have a profile picture? People are very conscious about what they look like. Some do believe that a member of the opposite sex will not give others a chance if they are good looking. Beauty is only in the eye of the beholder.
If you truly are embarrassed to place a photo of yourself online, you should first try and learn to enjoy your own appearance before seeking another for a relationship.
There are other people that are scared that posting a picture is an invitation for online predators to scam them. It is true that if you post provocative pictures this can happen. However a regular picture will not usually attract any criminal activity by others.
If it would, you should practice safety online to avoid getting involved in giving away too much information about yourself. Posting pictures is a relatively safe idea if you are going to use common sense.
To get the most productive results, you need to post more than one picture. First you should find a good head shot. This can be flirty, funny, or happy. One in which you are looking good and happy with a great smile is going to be the best bet.
For the second picture, use a shot that shows at least one of the rests of your body. If you do not include this, some people may think that you are trying to hide something from them.
It is better to be proud of who you are and your weight than to hide it and have someone find out later on down the road. Remember that everyone is looking for something different in another person's appearance.
You need to include some action shots. An example would be if you like animals you should post a picture of you and your dog. If you like sports, you can use a picture in your baseball uniform or at the game may be good.
If you travel a lot, you can upload a great picture of you at a landmark in the background. These are all interesting shots that will give the other online a good idea of your personality. Getting the interest of another person is the main goal of online dating and a picture can help you get the results that you are looking for.

ONLINE DATING - BE INTERESTING!
With online dating, it is a great way to meet other single people in your area. The most possible way for success with online dating is not for those that are the most beautiful or handsome, but rather being the most interesting. You can get the interest of others with your profile and this should be unique, fun and defiantly honest. Your online dating profile should be your first priority for your online dating experience. There are many ways that you can improve your profile so that you have the online dating success story that you are looking for.
The first idea that you can improve your chances of attracting the perfect online person is by placing your pictures online. If you do not place your pictures it will look like you have something that you want to hide. This can be even if you are not trying to hide anything. Placing pictures will show a person what you are like and not just in looks but also in personality. It is a good idea to place at least one head shot so that people can see a good picture of what you look like. After that you can use a variety of different pictures to show your hobbies and the things that you do not like.
Your profile should always be fil ed out properly. If you have some of the sections blank, people will not receive much information from your profile. You should fill out the profile clearly so that you can find another person and let others know if you would be a good match or not. Age limitations and location preferences are especially important.
It is important to be short for your profile. If your profile includes many different paragraphs or sil y writing, others will not have the patience to continue on reading and they may send you a message. Others will get an impression of you based on the first five seconds of looking at your profile. You have to be sure that al of the important information that they need can be communicated in this time. There is a fine line when it comes to the difference between a profile that is too long and one that is too short. You will need to get out there lots of information but at the same time, you need to leave room for another person to ask questions.
You need to be yourself. Do not try and be too funny in your profile if you are not usual y funny in real life. Do not lie about anything in your personal life and always be clear so that other people that are looking will not get the wrong idea about whom you are. Your online profile will be the way that others will learn about you and decide if a conversation with you is going to be a good idea or not.
3 ONLINE DATING MISTAKES TO AVOID
While you search the internet for that special lady or guy...the one of your dreams...your soul-mate...the other half of yourself, you can do a lot of things right. Sadly, you can, also, do a lot of things wrong....things that will guarantee failure and a broken heart. Out in the "real" world, being aggressive, demanding perfection and even little white lies are all ingredients for success. However, those same qualities are killers when you are dating online and off line, too, for that matter.
There is a big difference between being aggressive or confident and being too aggressive, over-confident, or just plain sleazy or slimy from a woman's point of view. If you push too hard for a face-to-face, you will come across as too aggressive...maybe even, scary. Try to remember that you are not trying to close a business deal and keep the relationship progressing at a slow but steady pace.
Patience is the key.
Nobody is perfect. We are all flawed in some way or another...and that includes you, as well. If you expect the woman to be absolutely perfect and demand that, you will always be disappointed. Demanding perfectionism in your work is one thing. Demanding perfectionism from someone you are interested in is not just fine. It won't happen. Expect flaws and just deal with them. Decide the ones you can live with and those you can't.
Little white lies and false fronts won't work. Be honest from the beginning of a relationship. Write your profile. Make it interesting but don't make false statements. The truth will come out eventually anyway. If you say you are a lawyer who makes a mil ion bucks a year and you are really an electrician that makes $35,000, you have set yourself up for failure.
Remember...don't be too aggressive, expect to ever find perfection or put on a false front.
