Ok, we admit we’re exaggerating a bit on this one but you get the idea.
If your appearance hasn’t changed much, then it’s likely you can get away with a shot taken a few years ago.
Equally, avoid pics taken the next day after a big night.
You in a kitchen laden with empty bottles, dressed in a onesie, still wearing last night’s make up and clutching an empty tub of Haagen-Dazs might not send the right message to potential dates.
And be extra aware of slogans which amuse for the wrong reasons, so while The Codfather might be a great name for a chippy, it’s not so cool in the background of your dating pics.But if you’re delving into the past by more than that, make sure there aren’t any clues in the shot that give away just how old it is.So perhaps avoid the pic of you with the ‘Rachel’ haircut and an All Saints CD on the table next to you. Don’t get us wrong – there’s a place for studio photography.But for dating photos, these type of shots run the risk of making you look like David Brent.We’ve all seen those sultry glances and cheesy poses which look staged, a bit desperate and even a tad creepy, when you want your dating pics to look natural, carefree and spontaneous.
