After all, a first Internet date is generally a casual daytime meetup, so I wouldn’t be sporting a nice hairstyle or tons of makeup, nor would I be posing under rosy, forgiving lights.
I’m really quite interested in trying to figure out why you’re going through a dry spell, but that wasn’t your primary question. Anyway, here’s my theory on professional photography: Due to the enormous competition, you want to maximize your chance of getting a first date.
I’m 24, and I’ve always seemed to have good luck with online dating.
I’ve met lots of people that way, including my last two boyfriends and a lot of now-close friends.
Is the reason you still haven’t booked a session with a photographer, because you’re waiting until you look more like an ideal version of yourself? The number one, most common reason people procrastinate about investing in current, high quality photos for their profiles, is because they’re not happy with how they look.
