How to Make Your Online Dating Profile Look Good
Following a personal experience or after being asked by a friend, the new picture might have been something taken at a recent holiday abroad, a portrait with natural lighting or with the help of a digital camera.
If you have been considering a new look or if you are about to undergo a major life change, you might have considered a change in your dating profile picture.
The main purpose of the profile picture is to present yourself in a favorable way. It is meant to communicate to others the kind of person you are. Some people rely on the picture to show they are serious, funny or mysterious whereas others rely on the picture to show they are caring, friendly, clean or respectful. It is up to you, but the main purpose of your dating profile picture is to create the proper image you have of yourself. Without a proper image, nothing else will get done.
Following these simple steps
Following these simple steps, you can enhance your profile picture and you will naturally receive a lot more attention. First, have your best friend take a personal photograph of you. If you are very pale or very tanned, ask your best friend to take a photograph that looks as natural as possible. Or take a digital camera and take several photos which you can stitch together in order to get a pleasing picture. If you have a digital camera, you can always use it in your profile picture. Have a friend take a picture of you while you are being yourself, for example when you are brushing your teeth, doing your hair or brushing your teeth. This type of picture creates a positive impression.
If you like the way your hair looks, have a friend take a picture of you and your friends. If you have to look different for the pictures, be my guest, but try to be yourself. Make sure your friends and family understand that you are trying to look different in order to stand out. You will eventually be the person you want to attract. Another tip is to try to get a picture with natural lighting. Having a picture with natural lighting gives you the right feeling. A little effort and thought can really reflect you into the person you want to be.
Do You Know Who You're Looking For?
I was sitting next to an extremely beautiful blonde one day at a party. I'd had a little extra help from my friends and I was sitting on one side of her, trying to make sure my knees didn't meet her legs. I noticed that her friend was in front of her, and I noticed her friend had a boy, I noticed the boy's legs slightly, I noticed a slight curve to his back. They were sitting between them, but not in any intimacy. I wondered why and felt embarrassed to wonder, as they were too far away. I was sitting next to them, I could reach them with my hands, but not with them, then she leaned her back slightly.
She raised her leg slightly, and then her hand on her hip brought it up into a semi-semi-semi-normal position, and she leaned her face slightly into mine, and then she sat back. I suddenly realized I'd been sitting at her, and that I was the one in between them. I got up and stood again, feeling slightly embarrassed, and went over to her. I touched her hand briefly, felt how it had the slight sheen of oil from her skin, and I sat down. I don't know whether she noticed. I felt so awkward. It wasn't that she hadn't noticed, but I don't think she could have been aware of what I'd done. She sat there a minute, she was looking at me with an expression of some odd pleasure that I couldn't place. Then she leaned her face back in my hand and breathed heavily, and then she sat forward and began to dance, a strange but beautiful dance, like a moon coming out of the clouds.
When she'd come to a halt on my hand I put her hand gently away from her hip and held it, I wondered why she hadn't touched me. Then she smiled at me. I was still wearing my coat, with the hood up, and her hand came in and took my hand. She let go of my hand and rose, her dancing, strange, beautiful, and perfect. She smiled at me again, and then she walked slowly to her car.
She was sitting in the driver's seat when I got to her, the hood up and the front windows down. I put my coat on the dash, and sat on the front seat seat. She said something to me, and I said something back to her. She seemed to realize that I was sitting there, too, in the front seat of her car, and she leaned her face in my hand again, and then she smiled at me. We just sat there like that, like two stars. I put my hand in my coat pocket and pulled out the cigarette lighter and then held it to her. She took the lighter from me and we smoked, the way we'd smoked before. I pulled my hand out of my pocket and looked at her.
"It was nice seeing you."
"Likewise," she said, and then she turned and walked to her car. "Bye," I said. I got out of the car and stood. I went over to the car, pulled the door open, sat down, and watched her go, wondering what she'd been thinking about, wishing she'd have been nice to me, wishing I'd have been nice to her. I wished she'd still been there, and wished I were still with her. I felt my heart pound like a drum, pounding inside my chest, knocking hard, and I thought of the joy she'd brought into my life, the joy of our time together, and I wondered what I might have been doing wrong to have let her go.
I couldn't do much else. I didn't dare look at her, but I could see the smile. I was not a young man anymore, but my eyes were still strong and clear, sharp as swords. I had learned. I had grown, and I had grown strong. I watched the smile, and I wished for strength. I wished for courage. Then I thought of what might have been, and I wished for love, and then I thought of what might have been, what might have been. What might have been. That was a long time ago. She's long gone. I don't know her. But I was alive once, and I did say some awful things. I wish I'd learned from those times, from how I had lashed out, and not done worse things ever again. But I was young then. I'm old now. I can't change that. "I wasn't even in love with her," I whisper to myself, staring at the picture of her. "She didn't know I was in love with her. I'm the only one who knows that."
That's it. There was nothing more
If you're a realist, you'll see that what happened is actually a perfect metaphor for a lot of people's experience with the whole concept of loving someone without actually being in love with them, i.e. the experience of falling in love. In other words, you don't know that you're in love with someone, even though your feelings are strong and your actions are clearly directed at the person. So you really don't know that you're doing anything wrong. You think you're not loving them, but of course you're doing nothing wrong. You're just falling in love with them. Which is a big part of what love is, after all, falling in love. You have feelings for this person and you don't know whether they have feelings for you.
That's an awful lot of experience for one relationship to have. And that's just one relationship. Love is a lot more than just love. It's a lot of experiences that all contribute to the fact that you're in love with this person, or not in love with them. When you fall in love, you're also falling out of love. It's not just that you go out of love and then return to it. You actually fall out of love and then return to it. But if you're not in love, then you're falling in love. You don't know whether you're in love with someone or you're falling in love with someone. You have strong feelings, but they're ambiguous and they're directed at someone else. So you don't know whether they're helping you or hurting you. It's difficult to identify, but you can know that you're not in love with anyone.
Because the experience of falling in love is quite different from the experience of falling out of love, it's no wonder that they don't describe them as the same thing. It's easy to become confused by the confusion. It's easy to think that your feelings and your actions are the same. That your love is the same as your lust, and vice versa. When your brain is confused about something, it forms a mental association. An association that says "My feelings and my actions are the same." But that's always not true. If anything, your feelings are more like lust, and your actions more like love.
In the end, love is a lot more complicated than you might think
It is the deep emotional sense of attraction, and it's the desire to commit yourself to someone and to have a relationship. That desire to commit is often confused with the desire to have sex, or the desire to be pursued, or the desire to spend time together. But in the end, if you're looking for a lasting relationship, if you're looking for a true loving relationship, then you are more likely to fall in love with the person who is there. You are more likely to want to get to know them, to take part in their activities, to spend time with them.
In the end, you will recognize the person who is already in the relationship. You will realize that there's nothing wrong with this relationship. It just is.
