Here, Davis offers advice that applies to pretty much every dating service, whether you're all about Match.com, more partial to Hinge, or a fan of something else entirely.Choosing the right pictures is the first step, especially if you're using an app like Tinder that barely has room for a summary.Not only do these kinds of photos communicate who you are, especially when you're short on space for words, they serve as potential conversation starters.
When you've only got a few sentences' worth of space, every little bit counts.
"On an app like Tinder or Hinge, your profile needs to be content-rich even though it's short," says Davis. "You want to pack as much information in as you can," she says.
Good to keep in mind based on who you're interested in! That gives you enough room to diversify without entering photo overload territory.
First, consider opening with a few clear face shots where you're not far away, wearing sunglasses, or doing anything else that makes it hard for someone to see what you look like. "People sometimes think if you don't post one, you're trying to hide something," she says.
"You have such a short window of time to catch someone's attention, you want to make sure it's actually on you while you have it!
" That way, you also won't have to deal with someone messaging you to get in touch with another woman in your photo (yes, this has actually happened to a friend of mine)."We find that uploading more than one isn't the best approach, because that can also speak to your lifestyle," says Davis.
