Seriously, this is probably one of the biggest mistakes I see men doing.
They use multiple pictures from the same day, wearing the same outfit just being in a different location.
Nothing screams „I did a shooting just for online dating“ more than that.
I’m not saying that taking pictures especially for your profile is bad, but you don’t need to rub it into the woman’s face.
Most of the time you want to make it seem like you weren’t even aware that a photo has been taken of you.
That’s what I call the „Snapshot effect“.

Same story and should be avoided at all cost.
I think it’s even worse than wearing the same outfit in multiple pictures, or at least equally as bad.
It shows that you were too lazy to even move to a different location.
And if you’re also wearing the same outfit on multiple pictures in the same location..
You can already wave goodbye to all the likes and matches you could’ve received otherwise.

Once in a blue moon I’m working with a client that doesn’t make any of the other mistakes.
When that’s the case and I’m about to pray..
He makes the third one.
I know you think that you have one angle or expression that’s more flattering.
Which you always use for those precious selfies.
But having the same expression or pose in every picture, doesn’t only make it look like photoshoot.
It also makes you seem like a very boring, uncreative and one dimensional person.
You want to show different shades of your personality.
Doesn’t have to be 50, unless you’re a big fan of the movie.
In that case, we’ll keep it our little secret.
That wraps it up.
Don’t make these photoshoot mistakes.
Else you could basically just send women the following letter with a carrier pigeon
„Hey girl, I didn’t have any awesome pictures of myself to convince you of my worth.
So yeah, of course I booked a professional photographer especially for online dating to make me appear as sexy as possible.
Nothing else in my life is worth taking a picture of, that’s why I’m only using the photoshoot ones.
Also, don’t mind me having the same pose and expression on every picture.
That’s just because I’m very uncreative and one dimensional.
I hope you will forgive me since I’m still a nice person regardless of those things.
I really hope that this post leads to a better online dating world for men and women alike.
Sometimes I feel sorry for all the women rolling their eyes in pain while looking at men’s profiles.
But then again, I’m here to make it just a little less painful.
Next time when you have a photoshooting think about all these mistakes.
Do your best to avoid them and thank me later.
