There's no doubt that having a photo on your profile will generate far more interest and encourage many more winks and messages to come your way. Consider your profile inappropriately dressed without one and add a good selection of photos for maximum effect.
With one or more good quality photos on your profile you can expect to receive 10 to 15 times as many visits as those profile with no photos at all. It is not surprisingly really when you consider that most people will see a smiling face and react to that before they read a profile. As there are always plenty more fish in the sea then think of your your photo as the tempting bait on the hook waiting to catch your match!
It's all in the eyes
We are programmed to respond to physical attraction so it's only natural that we should feel more inclined to contact someone who has a smiling friendly face on their profile. People instinctively react to the warmth and friendliness shown in a smile and the eyes can convey much of that effect so make the most of this opportunity by using a clear photo of your head and shoulders as your main profile image.
Upload more for added interest
By uploading more photos from your computer, sending from your mobile phone or taking a snapshot with your webcam you can quickly build up a small portfolio of profile photos. Successful online daters will tell you that a collection of photos is worth the effort and pays dividends. Experiment with your chosen devices and enlist a friend to help you to make the perfect pictures.
Here are a few examples of the types of photos that won't help you in your quest for love online:
Adult Photo Personals
Adult photo personals and dating sites often contain explicit photos of members who have taken snaps when they are naked or semi clothed. While this might seem the normal thing to do it isn't always the best option. Like any other type of dating site adult dating sites contain members who want to see at least one clear photo of the face of each member so that they can see if there's an instant attraction. You can always add more explicit photos and videos too but for the main profile image it's best to use a photo that shows and welcoming face, in provocative pose perhaps, but at least with a face that says more than words can say.
