Online dating use among 55- to 64-year-olds has also risen substantially since the last Pew Research Center survey on the topic.Today, 12% of 55- to 64-year-olds report ever using an online dating site or mobile dating app versus only 6% in 2013. I’m back with another post in my series on being single.And since this time of the year can sometimes be a bit of a downer for singles, I thought we’d lighten the mood with the topic that never fails to entertain — online dating photos.Start by making sure whatever pictures you post show you smiling. Another hint for ladies -- don't post pictures wearing clothes that are overly sexy or men will think you are looking for a sex partner, not a relationship. Use them as a guide that can make or break your online dating experience. So you think it's best to only post a picture of your face, thinking that once a man or woman gets to know you and like you, he or she won't care what you look like below the neck.If you decide to meet, he or she is going to see your body anyway, so you may as well show it all upfront in a full length picture and let people decide what they want to do about it.
Scott Valdez, Founder and President of Virtual Dating Assistants (Vi DA Virtual Dating Assistants.com) advises that informed decisions yield better results.
Today, nearly half of the public knows someone who uses online dating or who has met a spouse or partner via online dating – and attitudes toward online dating have grown progressively more positive.
To be sure, many people remain puzzled that someone would want to find a romantic partner online – 23% of Americans agree with the statement that “people who use online dating sites are desperate” – but in general it is much more culturally acceptable than it was a decade ago.
But boy oh boy, have your photos made my day on more than a number of occasions.
;) So for any guys out there getting Matched, EHarmonized, Fished a Plenty, struck with an OK arrow from Cupid, Mingling with Christians and more right now, I invite you to put down your weights, take off those sunglasses, and enjoy this post.
