7 type of photos Man should avoid posting on Dating Site Profile

It's no secret that man, just like anyone else, wants to put their best foot forward when creating an online profile on the dating site. After all, first impressions are everything, and you only have one chance to make a good one. 
Unfortunately, sometimes a man can get so caught up in trying to show how great he is that he makes some significant mistakes. One of the biggest mistakes men can make is posting certain types of photos on their dating site profiles. 
So what are the 7 types of photos men should avoid posting on their dating site profiles?

Shirtless photos

We get it, you're a man, and you have a nice body. But do you really need to post a shirtless photo as your main profile picture? Chances are, the answer is no. 
Shirtless photos send the message that you're looking for something more than just a relationship. It's not the issue itself, but you should know that the girls do not appreciate such straightforward visual communication.

Group photos

Group photos are great for showing off your social life, but they're not so great for showing you off. When people see a group photo, their eyes immediately go to the person in the photo who is most attractive. So if you're not the most attractive person in the picture, people will just scroll right past you. 

Photos with another woman

This is beyond the limit of adequacy. No, no, and no. You shouldn't do that. It does not matter if she is a friend, sister, mother, ex, or even a superstar that you like- it's unacceptable. You came on a dating site to find a soul mate or just a sexual adventure; you should not put up such a photo in any of these cases. The only exception is if you are looking for a third for a daring adventure with the two of you. 

Bathroom/ Gym selfies

Such selfies are generally a bad idea for a man to post on their dating site profile. They tend to make a man look selfish and egotistical and like they're trying too hard to be someone they're not.  

Photos where you drunk

We all know that alcohol can make a man do stupid things. And one of those silly things is posting photos of themselves drunk on their profile. 
Drunk photos send the message that you're not looking for a relationship and that you're not serious about dating. Even if you are trying to find a hookup, posting such a photo is very risky. All women know that drunk men are more likely to be aggressive and have problems with erections.

Professional headshots

A professional headshot is excellent for your LinkedIn profile, but it's not so great for your dating site profile. Professional headshots make men appear insincere. It is frequently a hint to women that a guy is not confident and is attempting to compensate for it by utilizing a professional headshot.

Photos near the car

Cars are man's best friend. But that doesn't mean you should post photos of yourself with your car on your dating site profile. 
Photos of the man with their cars send the message that they're materialistic and more interested in their car than they are in finding a relationship. Another terrible notion is to put up photos in front of someone else's costly automobile. It will make you seem like a show-off and give the impression that you're trying to earn extra points dishonestly.


If you want to make a good impression on your dating site profile, avoid posting these 7 types of photos. Otherwise, you will likely just get ignored by the women you're interested in. Instead, focus on posting pictures that show off your personality, which will attract the right kind of women to you. Thanks for reading!
