This article is so interesting!
Did you know that January 5. 2014 is the best day of the year to try your hand at online dating? Apparently, all the people who have been like “Okay, this year I’m going to have a boyfriend and love him and marry him” have finally set up their profiles by Jan 5th.
Match.com relationship expert, Whitney Casey, says it takes a few days to choose the right picture, the site you’re going to use, and really get your nerve up, but by Jan 5th most people have gotten that down.
1. Women – use full body shots and not selfies, apparently profiles with body shots as the main photo get 203% more messages than the average person.
2. Men – Women don’t like your emoticons, and they also don’t like when you use words like “hot” “sexy” or “cute”, Men who use those terms are 44% less likely to get a response back.
3. Everyone – Spell check! Profiles with typos don’t get any love.
While not scientifically proven, we would also advise you to avoid pictures of 100 dollar bills, mug shots, Harry Styles, and washing machines for optimum results. #seenallofthese
