I highlighted the dos and don’ts in a previous post here. Basic, boring, generic photos can suggest that you are like that in real life. With limited space to convey yourself in a flattering light, these opportunities are valuable pieces of space that largely go underutilized.

Online Dating Photo Faux Pas: Worst Dating App Profile Photos, Bad Dating Photos, Cliche Photos
