Integrity in Dating: Online Dating Profile Photograph Advice PT2
Internet Dating Profile Photos Integrity or Lying for Single Guys
My posting about the Internet Dating Profile Photo phenomena of someone actually posting someone else’s photograph in their Internet Personals Ads raised quite a ruckus with my Dating and Relationships Advice Blog readers. (Integrity in Dating: Online Dating Profile Photograph Advice PT1) Most singles and some of the relationship success married couples readers were simply floored that any single would post a dating profile photo of anyone but themselves in their online dating profile. Certainly, most of the premium, paid and better Internet Matchmaking Industry websites like Match, Mingle, AmericanSingles, LavaLife, Chemistry, and Eharmony attract singles who are interested in a serious relationship. Therefore, of course, they post dating profiles of themselves. The singles who don’t post a photo of themselves just are either too young, or too obtuse. Perhaps they really are just completely clueless and feeling massively discouraged about their chances to find lasting love online.
Lying With Your Photo At Your Internet Dating Profile Scenario 2: You in Better Times
The other Dating Profile Photo issue which prompts so many singles to ask if there is Integrity in Dating these days with Internet Dating is the phenomena of using old photographs. This particular absence of Integrity in Dating scenario seems to occur more often from single men.
Dreadful Dating Profile Photos: Drivers License Photographs
In the early days of photos being available to share and post digitally online, it seemed that many more of the single men at the internet dating sites would post an image of the Drivers License photo. It was a sure sign that they were among the technically challenged. Not to mention they were clueless about putting their best foot forward, because only the most photogenic people take good and photographically flattering Drivers License Photographs.

Secondarily they would post old photographs of themselves. These photos would often be what must have been the equivalent of their college prom photos. The men’s hair would be long, evocative of the early 1980s and they’d be sporting a bushy mustache while wearing a Robin’s Egg Blue Tux. Clearly this was an image of them that was not remotely recent.
I’ve heard from a number of single women that the men’s dating profile photo would be half dark, concealing his face, creating a mystery man impression. Alternatively, the photo would show him with a hair style similar to what he wears now, only a touch longer…. and the physique he had a good ten years ago.
Another variation on the “… In Better Years” online dating profile photos from men, would be of a man with a similar garb and hairstyle to what he wears now with a shot of him with a very young girl, presumably his daughter. Then you find out that he has only 1 daughter, and she has entered her freshman year in college. String that story together, and yes, that means that the photos he is using of himself in his dating profile are from at least 13 years ago. That is an example of a Lack of Integrity in Dating. He might not have thought of that as an overt lie, but it certainly was deceptive.
Now many single women will be somewhat forbearing with single men and their photo challenges. I know some single women who in the past could tell the photos were a bit out-of-date and would give the guy a chance. Essentially you have the First Date to impress her that you are still good looking, or appealing in some manner sufficient to warrant her becoming attracted to you.
However, after awhile, as a single guy using phenomenally old photos of you, you will simply find out that you have lost all appeal to women online because they do not want to be put in the position of walking you through how to upload a digital photograph or to insist that you post a photo of yourself from this decade. She will simply feel fed up and not interested in being your dating site technical support before you have bought her a First Date glass of wine.
If you are still doing this, please, either apply to have me write your dating profile and coach you with photos and email, or attend one of my Internet Dating Workshops in Southern California or Las Vegas.
