How do I set my Match.com profile picture?

There are many people looking for love online these days that you don’t need to exaggerate just be yourself and someone will adore you. As we all know, online dating is about meeting people with whom you can form a genuine relationship and not about creating a movie version of yourself!

I am assuming, you are new on match.com and you haven’t uploaded your profile picture. Use the Add a Photo button in your profile on Match.com to upload your primary photo. Men are 14 times more likely to browse at a woman’s profile with a photo, while women are 8.5 times more probable to look at a man’s profile with a photo, according to the site.

Following are the steps to upload your profile picture on match.com according to the device and place you are using.

How to select a good profile picture for match.com?

Choose a picture that clearly displays your face smiling and in a flattering light, as well as one full-length image and another that depicts you surfing or snowboarding. Make sure your make-up is subtle or as you would generally wear it for the ladies, and the same goes for your wardrobe. Men, on the other hand, should make sure the photo doesn’t show you hiding behind a hat, enormous sunglasses, or a scarf that hides your face.

If you smile in your photo, it will create the sense that you are a joyful and kind person, which is always appealing. The best photo a person can use is one in which they are wearing a smile at the camera.

People on dating services want to see the genuine you, so don’t Photoshop your profile photo. A photo of you dressed in the kind of outfit you’d wear on a first date might be an excellent starting point. Make sure you look at ease in your profile photo to promote yourself as someone who would make a nice relationship.

How can I delete a photo?

Simply choose the photo in your photo album, click the trash icon in the top right corner, and it will be deleted forever. We’ll keep your secret safe. Please keep in mind that at least one photo must be shown on your profile for other singles to see. You must first submit a new photo if you only have one left and want to delete it.

The bottom line

One of the most effective methods to stand out on Match is to upload photos. Simply go to ‘Edit my profile’ by clicking the image at the top right of any Match page once you’ve found a photo you like. Then select ‘upload a photo’ and follow the on-screen prompts. 

Within 24 hours, your photo will show. When it’s finished, match.com will send you a confirmation email, and you’ll be ready to attract more attention from people who might be your potential date.

I hope this was helpful.
