And OK Cupid backed this up by saying they found the most effective photos for men, were those when they were looking away from the lens.
That said, your main profile photo should have you smiling and looking into the lens so that you come across as engaging.
male pictures most frequently used by African scammers.
ALL PICTURES ARE STOLEN FROM INNOCENT THIRD PARTIES.
This tip originated on the Ok Cupid’s Ok Trends blog in January 2010.
There was some research undertaken by Zoosk that said some women may find that too many photos, where you’re staring directly into the lens, can be a bit intimidating.Nothing makes more of an impact on your dating profile than your main image.You can have everything going for you -- great job, no kids, never married, and sporting an appropriate number of teeth -- and one bad shadow, receding hairline, or misplaced background can render you undateable with one swipe. Researching profile photos has surfaced bizarre information, like the fact that the most popular guys show the left side of their faces and demonstrate pride.TL; DR: OKCupid’s study on male dating photos fails reproducibility If you’re a guy who uses online dating sites/apps, you’ve probably heard this one: don’t smile in your picture.Better yet, don’t smile and look away from the camera.
