You will not have the second chance to make the first impression. Take advantage of these tips and act for sure. More and more often people get acquainted on the Internet, therefore opinion about the person develops on his profile photo. So, different photos of the same person can make completely different first impressions.
Alexander Todorov, a doctor of psychology from Princeton University, confirmed this in a number of studies. During one of the experiments, he took photos of the volunteer in different poses and asked other people to evaluate the pictures by various characteristics: intelligence, reliability, attractiveness. Estimates were completely different.
After the experiment many people wondered how to take right photos in order to present themselves in the most favorable light. For the answer, another study was conducted: from the dating site, photos with the highest and lowest user ratings were taken. Then the patterns between the most and the least rating photos were revealed. Based on these observations, he created tips on how to choose the right photo:

#1. Do not hide your face. Sunglasses, of course, are a stylish accessory, but do not post photos in them if you are looking for a new relationship. When you get acquainted, eye contact is important, even when it comes to photography. During a direct eye-to-eye look, a hormone of confidence oxytocin is produced. It makes a person feel connection with another person, causes a desire to communicate with him more closely and to get to know him better. However, when the eyes are hidden behind the sunglasses, the brain does not receive any impulses. There are fewer people who want to communicate with such a person.
#2. Look directly at the camera. People look more attractive when they look at the camera. At the subconscious level, an open posture and unfolded shoulders are perceived as signs of respect. We consider this person to be attentive to us. Remember communication in real life. It is nice, when during the conversation the interlocutor will turn completely towards you. If the pose is closed, it seems that it is unpleasant to communicate with him.
#3. Pay attention to the background. People appreciate not only your posture and your appearance, but also the background. Your pretty face is not enough to interest. The photo should have some kind of story. In addition, a photo on the beach, in the mountains, restaurant or club will tell people about your hobbies. If you like going to the gym and you have something to brag about, safely put a photo in a swimsuit. It is important not to overdo it with frankness: your photo should be romantic, not erotic. It will be clear if you have something in common with a man and whether it is worth starting acquaintance at all.

#4. Smile. Photos of smiling people attract more attention. We consider them to be open, cheerful. There is a desire to meet and recharge their love of life. So, you need to smile.
#5. Show your hands. Hands are indicators of trust. If a person shows them in a photo, subconsciously we consider him reliable. Also, person’s hands on the photo tell us that he is not dangerous: he is open and will not cause harm.
#6. For women: Take an example from Marilyn Monroe. Marilyn Monroe is considered the standard of femininity. A coquettish look stirs the man's imagination. If you want to make a man fall in love with you at first sight, take the same photo. Just tilt your head, cover your eyes. It is necessary to look through your eyelashes. Open your lips and reveal your neck. Men like female open neck.

#7. For men: Show yourself. You need to show not only a brutal look or a chic beard, but all of yourself. Pictures of men in full growth attract women. Photos in T-shirts, where hands are clearly visible, are also highly appreciated.
#8. Radiate confidence. Self-confidence is immediately visible in the photo. It attracts people, because all subconsciously want to get acquainted with a self-sufficient person. Nobody wants to solve other people's problems. Confident people always keep their backs straight. Their eyes are open, their hands are often placed behind the head. Looking at such a photo, you will not see even the slightest tension in a person.
