This is probably the easiest DIY project you can do, since it requires no more than a face, lips and some basic instructions. But, you'd be amazed how many online dating fanatics use goofy and unflattering online dating profile pictures to make that all-important first impression. With 40 million U.S. citizens using online dating services, well, you get the picture
. Oh wait -- maybe you're not
getting the right picture.
Remember -- a picture is worth a thousand words.
Don't submit photos with red-eye, attention-grabbing backgrounds or where you've PhotoShopped out your ex -- no matter how much you like your hair in that shot. Want more? Don't wear sunglasses or hats and don't use a dark or blurry image either.
If you really want your brimming personality and full personality to come through in that profile pic, set back six minutes of your time and watch this video to get the full scoop
on how that one picture can represent yourself to thousands of potential mates.
