Here at PolyMatchMaker.com we have seen and processed a lot of images. When we say, "a lot", we mean in the tens of thousands.
This is what we have learned about images over the last decade.
1 - Include at least one in your bio. Yes, you may be shy or have some other reason to why you choose not to add a personal picture into your bio, but we can tell you what other members think when they do not see your image...
-- This person isn't real, or they may be a cheater
-- This person is hiding something
-- This person isn't sincere about looking for another partner
2 - When you do include an image on your profile; please be aware of what else is in the photo
-- Are you one of many people in the image? Who are you? Which one? What is the point of having all of these other people in the photo?
-- What is on the floor? What is in the background? Are you in a space that a potential partner would want to be in as well? CLEAN UP THE ROOM YOU ARE IN - REALLY IT MATTERS!
3 - No you don't have to smile, but please a least look like you are interested in something
-- Adversely aggressive images, including flipping people off display an attitude that most people aren't looking for when they are looking to meet a partner. Really, keep your bad-ass self in check
-- OK, we get it, you are 420 friendly. That's perfectly fine with us, but if you are going to upload 5 images of you exhaling smoke, it's going to read like you do nothing else.
4 - Blurring out your face
-- We get it, there are people out there that still believe that Ethical Non-Monogamy is taboo, and they're worried about displaying their faces. Have you noticed that you can't view any profiles or images until you are logged into this site? That means, if someone else you know creates an account here, there may be other things to discuss outside of a blurred face shot.
-- Stop adding ears, glasses, and filters. The people looking to find someone really aren't interested in a distorted image of you. They want to see you clearly.
In closing -
Add at least one image, of you, just you.
Make it clear, and stay away from silly filters
Be aware of what is or isn't around you
Either be all in or don't add an image
Until next time,
