To retouch or not to retouch your portrait photograph on your dating profile?? That is the million dollar question and needless to say, both men and women are divided in their opinions about the efficacies on the practice of airbrushing your photo.
On any dating site, it is a common fact that the profiles clicked on and viewed the most are those with photos attached. Its obvious why! People like to look and no-one can deny that the basic physical attraction to someone plays a huge part in determining the likelihood of any chemistry between a couple.
For many, first impressions certainly do count and deciding whether to look further at someone’s profile can be determined in a split second after glancing at a photo of your intended date.
Whatever anyone tells you, if you don’t like what you see ‘on the tin’, there are very few people that aren’t superficial enough to think twice before digging a little deeper without being influenced by that profile picture.
So don’t you deserve to make sure you look as presentable as you possibly can? I’m not talking about posting a photo of yourself that isn’t you or one from 10 years ago in the hope of getting a first date. But lets be honest, there are ways to work with what you’ve got and after all, isn’t getting to first base more than half the battle?
Find the best, recent picture you can of yourself and invest a few dollars and get it retouched! Simple!! It doesn’t cost much and just the whole effect of smoothing your skin a little, contrasting the lighting and helping with the basic colour effect can make all the difference between a first date or ….. click, next!!!
