What do your profile pictures say about you? If you’re smiling, I think, “Here’s a nice person who connects with me and could really like me.” After regaining my sanity, I think, “Here’s a total stranger grinning into a camera lens.”
Do you want to send the message that you’re unpredictable or quirky? Try brooding and not smiling. Although I’m liable to think I did something to offend you and I haven’t even met you yet. But that’s just me. I even take spam personally.
Like staying on the go? Show it in a picture. But remain still enough to take the picture, or you’ll resemble a blur. Prefer rotting on the couch? Photoshop yourself sitting not on the sofa but in a hot air balloon. When they find out later you’re a couch potato, tell them the “hot air” was a message.
If you have a fun group shot with your pals, make sure each and every pal is less cute than you are.
Have a great picture with your ex? When chopping him or her off, be sure to remove any remnant of the strange tattoos on their forearm, unless it’s to signal us it’s why you left them.
