Tips on Dating Profile Pics

So being single at almost 40 may have its perks. I don’t have to share my DVR , I am free to paint my walls pink, and I don’t have to share my walk in closet. However… looking for romance or love can be a drag. Pickins are slim. To those men out there posting profiles and reaching out to me. Here are a few pointers.

1. This is my current profile picture.


This is a proper profile picture. Close to the face.. .looks just like me. Recent. The other photos show more of me – some full length some half body type stuff. I don’t have any of me in a bikini because a) thats tacky b) I don’t look good in a bikini.

Tip #1 – If you have man boobs or general flabbiness. Just leave on the shirt. Its much more flattering. And if you wear a sport coat – don’t forget your shirt unless you are Channing Tatum or Matt Bohmer.


Tip #2 – Don’t use an awkward family photo for your picture either. It is never attractive.


Tip #3 – You are not Chris Hemsworth. I promise using his picture as your own will be a let down.


Tip #4 – Mock Turtlenecks is NEVER a good look.



Tip #5 – IF you are a cross dresser. I am not interested. READ MY PROFILE. I actually state that I am looking for a man’s man, hunter fisherman “good ole boy” country dude. Not sure how this guy thought I would be interested. Maybe its the pink hair.


And this folks is why I am forever alone. Dating at almost 40 kind of SUCKS.
