There is nothing like a first impression and if you want to become a serious Facebook dater then that first impression is your profile picture. Your profile picture is the first thing that your next date will see so you have to think about the message that you want to send with it. Who are you? What are the things that you like to do?
How approachable are you? Those are all things that can be answered without saying a word by using your profile picture. That is why if you are looking to use the social media giant to get your next date, then you have to think long and hard about the picture that will represent you and the pictures that you want to make available to the general public. If there are pictures that you do not want to share with anyone but your friends then make sure that your privacy settings are set to friends only.
What About Photos
Even if you do not want to share many pictures you should at least share a couple. It is not that people are shallow, but in reality everyone likes to know who they are speaking to before agreeing to a date. Here are some tips that you should follow to make the pictures work in your favor. The main profile picture should be your face and if you can get one that does not have your “posing” smile then that will be better; the smile always looks better when it is natural and does not look as if it were forced out of you.
Next, get a couple of activity pictures to make available. These pictures can be something that you enjoy doing either alone or with friends. If you like reading then even that is fine as a picture to show. You want your pictures to allow someone to relate to you.
