In honor of our new CMB mobile app, we are doing a series of posts focused on mobile phones and the best dating apps. Today, we’re breaking down the types of profile pictures of guys you find on a mobile dating app. Read on!
Everyone knows first impressions are important. They are even more so with the increasing popularity of mobile dating apps and decreasing attention spans. Your profile picture can find you your soulmate or leave you in the dust of missed connections and abandoned Bagels. Dating coaches give endless advice on how to choose the perfect photo to upload. Find the most flattering lighting, look directly at the camera, don’t look directly at the camera, smile! With all the advice out there, it’s hard to keep track. No matter which picture you choose to upload, remember that a picture is a worth a thousand words. Let’s take a look at what those words are.
Holding puppy/baby/cute object
He knows puppies and babies are women magnets and is using that fact to his advantage. Even so, who can resist a man being smothered by puppy kisses?
On stage at a tech conference delivering a keynote
He’s founding his own startup or funding other people’s. You know that he’s techy, nerdy, and has serious net worth. What’s not to love?
Professional glamour shot
Hope that he did this in an ironic way to be funny. Complete with props and poses that attempt to be sexy and mysterious…he’s either a goofball or way too into himself.
Group photo of his office softball team
You know he’s social, has at least that many friends, and is fit enough to lift a bat. Just make sure you’re looking at the right guy!
The only time a shirtless profile picture is acceptable is if he is at the beach/pool/body of water (the toilet doesn’t count). Pass!
So there you have it. Five types of guys you meet through dating apps, solely based on their profile pictures. Which one are you?
