Online dating sites are not sex sites. They are meant to be serious site for serious singles who wish to find a match. Photo posting should be done with this in mind. On a serious dating site, a person should never use the photo posting option to put up pictures that are inappropriate. Even though a lot of online dating services will screen the photos, there are subtle clues in a person picture that will send out a certain message.
The quality that a person should try to make their photo posting say is that they are happy, content and confident people. Some men may use photo posting to show off to the world the muscles the have acquired in the gym for the past years. While they may think this will lead to many emails and contacts; it will not. Most women are turned off by men who seem vain and conceded; this type of photo posting conveys that message; no matter how nice, kind and modest a man really may be.
When it comes to women, posting photos takes on a whole new approach as compared to a man. Women in general, are competitive and they are aware that there are countless other single women on the site; all trying to grab the attention of the attractive and quality males. Women are making a grave mistake if they think they must use photo posting to put up sexy and provocative pictures. In their quest for a mate, they may mistakenly believe that sexy pictures will put them ahead of the other females. While it is true that a photo should be appealing; if a woman posts one that send the wrong signals , she will most undoubtedly receives emails and correspondence from males who think that she is too available, that she is desperate and she is only looking for sex.
A picture can be extremely appealing and at the same time send a message that a woman has self-respect, morals and will be choosy when it comes to who she allows into her life. Women should ask a friend or family member to set aside some time to take a lot of pictures, in various outfits and with various backgrounds so she can look through many and pick the best ones. A woman should appear to be casual and beautiful at the same time. She should by no means look sloppy, but she can wear a nice pair of jeans and a cute top; there is no need for mini skirts and tops that leave little to the imagination. She should be careful in posing. It is best to have natural poses that convey contentment. A woman should never pose on a bed or sit in such a way that it appears she is craving a man. Let a man notice the picture of a beautiful and confident woman; he will then if feeling a connection; allow him to see the sexy side if and when they reach that point in a relationship.
