Top 10 tips for online profile pictures

Since the Jewish New Year is almost upon us I thought we should all take time to refresh your photos in your online profiles. We are all one year older so a new picture should reflect how we CURRENTLY look like. We may all have that favorite photo of ourselves from a few years back (or more!!) but it should not be a photo in your profile.

A few rules to follow for pictures for your profile:

1- Try to find clear pictures.

2- You should have both a close up and a full length picture.

3- Try to put up the maximum amount of pictures that you are allowed. It gives a better idea of what you look like.

4- Try to at least put up nice pictures of yourself. I know this may seem obvious to you but I am telling you that at least half of the profiles I encounter have people with pictures that I don’t think should be part of their profile.

5- Ask for advice from either matchmakers or friends for which pictures to upload.

6- Smile!! I really don’t like when people put up pictures where they are not smiling or look like they just had the worse day in their life.

7- Stay away from glamour shots. They do not accurately reflect what you will look like when you meet face to face.

8-Dont put up pictures with other people. If you really have no choice then you should Photoshop the people out of the picture.

9-Dont put up pictures that are too small that when someone opens them they can barley see you.

10-Be yourself! Find pictures that accurately reflect how you look like on a day to day basis.

    I am from NYC and currently live in Cheyenne Wyoming where there is one Synagogue and no eligible Jewish men. I am picky, in NY men are more confident with themselves. In Cheyenne I call them redneck jews with the redenck mentality to go along with it. I had a date with a guy I met at Shul, he showed up in dirty sneakers and still in his work clothes. I called of the date of couse for the night. I am a NY woman and I spent the whole afternoon getting ready for him to show up in that manner. Also, he did not even bother to bring flowers and I have never had a date do that. I did give him a chance to redeem himself without any luck, so I gave him the Jewish shaft. Men in NY are gentlemen, they hold doors and walk on the other side of a woman when walking near a street. In NY men pay for dates, this guy did not even want to pay for a drink, he thought that it was rediculous since water was free. I want to live my life with someone who shares my beliefs but here in Cheyenne I will never find that. I am 42 almost 43 and just want to meet a nice guy.
