Tastes and opinions vary wildly of course, and there are many exceptions.
Having one or two selfies in your reel is perfectly acceptable, but there are better ways to take them than using a bathroom mirror.
Those just leave a bad taste in many people’s mouths.
Most likely, your phone’s main camera’s image quality is a lot higher than its front cam’s, so it’s understandable to use a mirror to easily make sure you’re in the shot.
But with a bit of practice, you’ll find just turning the phone around and taking selfies this way is almost as easy and produces better pictures.
Just make sure we already know which one you are, meaning don’t make it your main picture and leave it at one or two group shots total.
Nobody likes to play “Where’s Waldo” while looking at a dating profile.
This is true even if you absolutely require the other person to be into the same things, thus wanting to filter out anyone who isn’t, but that’s the topic of next week’s article.Also, when posing with others, make sure you’re the most attractive one in sight.You really don’t want people to go “Aw, they’re cute, but I’d much rather talk to their friend.”Do you already have an Instagram account? If not, starting one just for Tinder or Ok Cupid and force-feeding it staged pictures is probably not the best idea.At the very least your main picture should offer a clear, unobstructed view of your face. Not all your photos have to follow this rule, and wearing sunglasses outdoors is perfectly fine, but most people want to see your eyes at least once and the chances of somebody opening your profile (or swiping right directly) are higher if they can see them right from the start.Heavy filter usage just makes it seem like you have something to hide.
Is it at least somewhat filled with good and/or interesting pictures? An organically grown Instagram account, showcasing your favorite pictures of yourself, holidays, friends, landscapes, whatever you find interesting, will lend some additional insight into your personality and complement your bio.
