“Don’t Be THAT Guy: Online Dating Tips for Men”
According to statistics, there are 54 million single adults in the US and 40 million have tried online dating or some form of flirting online.
No. 1: The number of photos
So you want to show you’re a casual guy with great abs. Great! Don’t go shirtless. We want to imagine ourselves on a date with you. And don’t take photos of yourself in your bathroom. For one thing, we’re wondering, who took that photo? Choose a generic setting, the outdoors or a restaurant, and wear something slim fitting so we can see your body. And even though you're a t-shirt and jeans guy, step it up a notch for us. We like that.
MODEL: Our first model Kevin is a young guy and he likes to be casual and is most comfortable in sneakers. Totally fine. But for her, let’s skip the t-shirt proudly displaying your favorite sports team or band and show her the respect she deserves with a collared shirt. We like collars. We think you care about yourself and chances are pretty good that you have a job.
No. 2: Your “interesting” Photo
MODEL: Our model Michael is showing his creative side and showing a little personality with his leather jacket, plaid hat, and doc martins. This works. It shows your comfortable and confident and we women really like that. And don’t forget to smile in your photos. Just like men, women like to be around happy people.
No. 3: Set Yourself Apart
We women really want to see what you’re going to look like on our special date night or maybe what you wear when you go to work.
MODEL: Our model Troy is showing us how to step it up. He doesn’t need a sportcoat although he could easily add one to this look. A shirt and tie is so handsome and sharp and because so many men are going untucked and tie-less online, put on a shirt and tie, tuck that shirt in, shine your shoes and stand out from the pack.
