Online dating profiles totally
Secondly, and this might not be an issue for everyone, but if every picture you have is you surrounded by people, I’m going to assume, at least subconsciously, that alone time with you will be rare and probably become an issue and, frankly, if I’m destined to never have any alone time with you, we are terribly mis-matched and I’d rather swipe Left now and save myself all the effort. If I’m perusing your profile pics and several involve you standing with your arm around some amazingly good-looking dude who isn’t a cut-out of Leonardo Di Caprio, I’m going to wonder how I could even approach you without feeling like a laughing stock.
Conversely if all of your friends are goblinoids and I don’t know you’re the pretty one because you could be any one of the 5 people in that picture, I’m probably going to back away slowly and swipe Left.
However, it doesn’t have to involve being 10 pixels big in the picture.
I’d rather meet someone I can occasionally be a slob on the couch with and mutually appreciate each other’s potato-ness.

and if you don’t, you’re either one of the people doing this or you are blessedly, blissfully, innocent. If I see that profile, even if the woman is beautiful, I’m skipping right past it. If you’re looking to meet someone and date, you either have time or you should lock up that profile until you do.
So, unless you think I’m going to spend a date hovering above you like a miniature dirigible, it’s kind of annoying and disconcerting to have six of these… There’s no way in hell I can keep up with that and I don’t really feel like humiliating myself trying.
Other apps, however, can be worse for your personal safety, such as Happn, which only matches you with people you’ve been physically near over the course of your day.
Online dating is a great way to meet people and make new connections.
