Should I Describe My Physical Appearance in My Profile?

Bethany Heinesh Bethany Heinesh • 9/25/14

While appearance is much more important to men than women, the ladies do care about looks. Almost every online dating or social networking site gives you the opportunity to post a picture and you should take advantage of such an invitation.

For starters, posting one or more great pictures of yourself significantly increases your chances of connecting with quality women. Most of us completely ignore guys who have one of those blank silhouettes as a profile pic because it seems suspicious.

With today’s technology, there’s no excuse for you not to represent yourself on your profile with a photo. Get a friend to take a picture of you that shows your best features, and don’t make the mistake of snapping one in front of the mirror because chicks hate that.

When asked to provide your description, never misrepresent yourself. Always be honest about your physical attributes and put your best forward. Don’t lie about your height, weight or age.

In the long run, you’ll be better off because, even though it sounds cliche, you’ll attract a woman who likes you for you.
