I’ve gotten an inside look into their actions, other people’s reactions, and how it all played out.
Honestly, I probably know what’s going to happen to you before it even happens, based on the choices you plan to make. But for the most part, when dealing with the game of life… You need to make the smart calls that will most likely result in favorable outcomes.
Either your dating profile sucks, or your photos do.
In his experiment, he showed women two pictures – one of “Tom”, the other of “Jerry” – and asked them which guy they considered more attractive.
When presented with only two options, Tom and Jerry were evenly matched in the looks department.
I consider the probability of getting the outcome I want.
But when it comes to dating, there isn’t really a source of concrete data that can tell you what will happen in a given scenario.
The technical term for this is “thin slicing,” and everyone does it in just about any social situation.
To get on the good side of her first impression, your photos need to convey all the reasons you’re such a great catch.
What you AREN'T is the guy in the background, watching the action go down around you. If you’re hiking with a small group of friends, you’d want to be the one leading the way.
You're the captain of the ship, the one in the driver's seat, the guy making the toast… This almost goes without saying, but make sure you’re the hottest one in the frame of any group photo you choose.
This is called “signalling,” and it can make or break your online dating photos.
Think of it this way – she’s going to imagine herself in the lifestyle the photo conveys. You're visually communicating that you’re interesting, you'll take her to exotic places, and most importantly, that you have the financial means to do it.
But I can tell you that your scenario is more likely to follow a pattern than to be an outlier.
