How to Upload Photos that will Create InterestWritten by Frank Duru
So, you’ve got a great profile but, so far, no one seems interested. You’ve tried everything: enticing headlines, fun information about yourself, everything...except a photo. Did you know that members with profile pictures are 7 times more likely to receive a message? A picture really is worth a thousand words.
Let’s begin: there are two ways to upload picture.
If you know name of your photo, you can simply type it in box. If you don’t know name, however, don’t despair. Click “Browse” and search through your files until you find what you want. Click “Open” and that should send photo to your management site. Now, click “Upload”. Your picture should, successfully, be on your profile.
There is much more to this, however, than simply loading picture. Here are some universally helpful hints that'll help you decide which photo you should use:
If it's a profile picture, make sure it clearly shows your face. A blurry photo or one that only shows you in background is not effective—showcase yourself! If you want to send a specific message about yourself, then chose a picture that matches that message. For example, if you say you are a funny individual but then select a photo of you frowning, it sends mixed messages--this can turn potential suitors away. Don’t get lost in crowd; never use photos with a large number of people in them. This can confuse anyone looking at your profile. Try to find pictures that only display you or, at most, a very small group of people that you can easily be seen in. Rotate your photos every few weeks; this will not only keep your profile interesting but you can also garner attention from people who had overlooked you before. Use recent photos. A picture of you from college is fine....but only if you’re still that age. Most importantly, smile!
Love Empire Online Dating TipsWritten by Frank Duru
Finding your soul mate online is a wondrous thing; however, there is potential for danger. While you have access to a wide variety of people, you also have impending complication of meeting those who are not what they seem to be--there are some tips of trade, though, to help you become more discerning with your choices. These tips can help you stay safe and stay away from men and women who are not what you’re looking for.
Tip One: Start Slowly. There are all kinds of people on Love Empire; not all of these people, however, will be right for you. Take your time--if you meet someone and start up a conversation, proceed with discretion. The person at other end may not be who they claim to be; take your time and watch for inconsistencies or odd behavior. If something bothers you, simply walk away. Do not rush into any relationship without thinking first.
Tip Two: Protect Your Identity. One of benefits of dating online is that you can get to know someone based solely upon their personality and not deal with more social conscious real world. It is up to you to decide when and how you reveal who you really are--be careful, however. If someone receives your personal information, they could use it against you. If a member tries to pressure you into giving out your last name, email address, home address, phone number, place of work or any other identifying information, then walk away.
Tip Three: Use Common Sense. When speaking to someone through Love Empire, do not throw good judgment away simply because this is an online service. What may sound wonderful on screen can be masking something not so wonderful in reality. Use caution and do not fall in love with first profile you read. Take your time and go through all of your potential choices. Then, after you’ve researched enough, go from there. It is a common occurrence for people to “fall in love” after only one conversation. Do not do this! Retain your common sense and view online dating as you view real-world dating. You do not have to love every profile you read.
Tip Four: Request A Photo. If you meet someone, chat with them, and see beginning of a relationship forming, then you might want to request a photo. Often, this can tell you more about person than any email or instant message. First of all, it can keep them from lying about their looks; secondly, you will know if you’re attracted to them in physical sense; finally, if they continually refuse to send a photo, there might be a reason other than embarrassment. Proceed carefully.
