Dating sites rely on quality photography because people look at and may proceed to read the profile or the message.
It is ultimately the personality in the photo that activates your profile, to get the conversation started.
Some people tell me they don't like having pictures taken; others blame their friends being bad "photographers." People also say "I never had pictures I liked." Some people admit they don't like the way they look but trying to do the best.
Many people ask for help in deciding what to wear because they are so used to wear a dark colored suit for work every day.
If you look like a happy, interesting person, they are much more likely to actually read your stuff, and with a certain chance, you’ll get a reply.
