Stick pictures together online dating
Selfies: Master the art Whether or not you think selfies are embarrassing, they do impact online dating profiles, for better or worse.
Female profiles with selfies get 4% more messages, while guys took an 8% hit.
Forget your friends Including your besties in your profile pics is also a big no-no.
First off, would they approve of being outed as your sidekick?
But get this — full-body photos net users (either men or women) 203% more pick-ups on the site.
So, invest in a selfie stick, and start working on your technique!
For instance, honesty increases guys’ odds in online dating, with the terms “divorce,” “separate,” and “my ex” netting 52% more messages, while “son,” “daughter,” and “children,” up their response rate by 7%.
For women, it’s a different (and very unfair) story — if they use those words, they get 4% fewer messages.
Be word-wise There are no secret passwords in dating (online or off), but according to some late 2013 research by Zoosk, there are some terms that can give you a bump.
“People who want to date women, whether that’s men or women, seem to be more concerned about authenticity and is this person heavily filtering this picture,” says Braley.
But for men, she wonders if they are lacking skills in the art of the selfie.
Timing is (almost) everything Remember Vince Vaughn’s three-no-five-day advice in ? With online dating it’s all about getting their attention when they’re online.
According to 2014 data, Zoosk says women are most active between 10 and 11 p.m., while men hit their inbox between 9 and 10 a.m.
