Your profile picture is the first thing a woman sees when she looks at your profile. Head and shoulders is good for a primary photo, full body (clothes on, please) should be somewhere in the collection. Everyone with a cell phone these days also has a camera. (Oh, and there’s a special place in hell for any man who uses vacation photos taken by his wife on a dating site when he’s still married to her. ) Personally, I think solo selfies are kind of juvenile. You’d better have a build like a Calvin Klein underwear model if you include shirtless photos in your profile.

While I don’t expect you to share your income information or other information that you might consider a bit more private than you’re willing to share in a forum as public as a dating site, I do expect you to provide answers for fields such as your marital status, height, body type, education level, religion (or whether it matters), number of children (if not grown), and whether you smoke or do drugs. And no, visiting your kids in Spokane doesn’t count.
