A woman called into a radio show I was on recently, talking about online dating, and asked, “I heard all guys look at are the pictures. ” The undertone of this question-slash-fear is, “Are looks the only thing that matters to a guy? That’s like saying you shouldn’t ever have to make an effort and so, yeah, go on a first date without showering, wearing whatever you rolled out of bed in. Also, we weren’t there at the Halloween party and thus don’t know what a huge hit your Carrie costume was (though now we know what you look like covered in blood).
But I Just Want Him (or Her) to Love Me for Who I Am! Are you someone who makes an effort to be sexy, appealing, attractive? You don’t want people to think twice—especially when one click and they’re onto the next person.
She was named the 13 and Under Reserve All-Around Champion, giving her a total of four reserve championships (2nd place).
In addition, Upton ended up third overall on the APHA youth Top Twenty.
Someone you date may eventually see you that way, but I wouldn’t say it’s what you lead with. Sure, you looked great in 1992, but since I don’t have a time machine, I can’t meet that person. And both lie about their age (something I do NOT recommend). So don’t go on a whole rant in your profile defending your age, etc. Dudes are especially prey to this kind of digital dismemberment. Either way, the person viewing it is wondering what you “really” look like. I have a friend who decided to do this, and has some really great pictures, that yes, she uses on her dating profile, but she also has.
Do you have six equally great pictures of yourself? Otherwise, you should use as many good pictures as you have of yourself, and not a single one more.
If you have two great photos at your disposal, and lots of mediocre ones, you’ll most likely do better if you just leave it at two. One very unflattering photo is enough to make many people close your profile and continue looking elsewhere, no matter how good the others were.
Upton was named the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Rookie of the Year following her appearance in the magazine in 2011, and was the cover model for the 2012, 20 issues.
She was also the subject of the 100th-anniversary Vanity Fair cover.
