Your Profile Picture It can seem difficult to stand out in the vast sea of online daters; the best way to do so is by creating a great profile—and be sure to always include a photo.Stand out from the crowd, rather than drowning the reader in cliché. Talk about actual interests: sports, books, art, music, films. Similarly, don't tell us you've got a good sense of humour – generally, people who have to say they do, don't. Keep it light, keep it funny, keep it confident (but not arrogant). On a similar note, make sure it's not a weird photo.Of course you're a good friend, of course you like to have fun. Describe your best features (but try not to boast). Obviously this means different things for different things, but a few pointers: if you're a man, flexing your biceps and/or posing topless is not as sexy as you may think it is; if you're a woman, try not to be overly posed."There weren't a lot of people using the Internet to date back then," she says."I had to go to Kinko's and scan in a picture of myself for my profile." Soon after that, she was on a date.
