There are 107 million singles in the US over the age of 18.
In the world of online dating, where up to 40 million singles search for love every day, first impressions are everything.
Just think about it for a second: I’m browsing women online. I don’t have the bandwidth to write to 50 women at once, much less at all. The attractive woman with the best profile, not the most attractive woman with the shittiest profile. They are largely stupid, shallow men, so you need not worry about them.
Men of substance are looking for women of substance – even when we’re trying to get laid as well.
It should be smiling, looking at the camera, and a clear shot of your face.

Bottom line: a dating profile—your first impression—is “sell copy,” and you’re the product being marketed.
