Picture perfect: choosing a profile photo

A good photo is crucial to a successful online dating experience. Follow these three golden rules to be picture perfect.

1. Bright and breezy. Bright photos get clicked on more than dark ones, so make sure your picture is well lit. Natural, outdoor light works wonders but a photo taken indoors with a decent flash will also serve you well. Think about your surroundings too; a colourful garden looks better than a cluttered kitchen.

2. Candid camera. Don’t be tempted to use a picture that you’ve taken of yourself. A candid shot taken by someone else will look more natural and therefore more attractive. If you don’t have any photos of yourself ask a friend to come round for a quick photo shoot and pick out the best shots.

3. Smile and the world smiles with you. It can be tempting to use a picture without a smile where you feel you look particularly distinguished or sophisticated, but it won’t do you any favours. You’ve joined Classic FM Romance to be approached, so looking friendly is imperative. Even if you don’t like your smile, it’s guaranteed that potential dates will.
