If finding ~love~ is one of your 2016 resolutions, statistically speaking, now's the time to give that dating app a shot. If you absolutely hate it, you can always delete the app and forget it ever happened.
It's a little weird at first, trusting a computer algorithm to pair you off.
But three weeks (and six dates) from now, you'll realize that online dating is, for better and worse, just like regular dating—and not, sadly, like ordering a pizza online.
Davidson: "A selfie with your dog in the park might work—you look like a real person.
Otherwise, it's hard to take a self-portrait, especially in the mirror, without looking like a vain asshole." Davidson: "People need to see your face, but shooting up close with a wide-angle lens makes your nose look bigger.
You want to say you're an oenophile or fluent in Klingon? The beauty of online dating is that it's stocked with people on the ends of the bell curve—the kind you'd never find normally. I have AMAZING friends who love to ski and drink too much Chablis!
So let your freak/geek/pedantic-wine-lover flag fly. I have a CRAZY job and travel ALL THE TIME: Little Rock, Reno, Raleigh... Sometimes I think I should slow down, because I just wanna live in the moment. " "I'm an ambitious 36-year-old with a high-profile job. Sorry, couch potatoes and guys making less than 6K.
I run marathons on Saturdays and triathlons on Sundays. DON' T WASTE MY TIME." "Here goes nothing: I'm a 29-year-old gal who just moved from Boston.
I have a job that sucks, but I won't bitch about it too much.
Have whoever's shooting step back just enough to get a three-fourths shot of your body." Urbinati: "White can wash out in photos, so if you're in shape, a simple well-fitting crew tee or Henley in gray is flattering and effortless.
To look more put together, try dark jeans, a slim-collar shirt, and a well-tailored suit jacket in gray—it reads more casual than black, less preppy than navy."Displaying your guts by completing questions like "On a typical Friday night I am..." and "I'm really good at..." will make you feel self-conscious and absurd— and that's normal.
Relax, don't overthink it, and remember that what you're putting up is the equivalent of first-date banter.
