Uploading a photo is one of the first steps is to creating your profile.
Your main photo is the first thing men will notice about you, so it’s worth taking the time to make sure it’s perfect.
A hastily-written page full of abbreviations suggests you're not taking it seriously, or that it's something you flung up online while you were bored.
'It's encouraging when you see a profile where a man specified books, music and fitness as interests because it makes them appear well rounded,' says online dater Lauren Keith, who is currently dating someone she met on Plenty Of Fish.'It's off-putting when a man only seems interested in going out with his mates and getting drunk.
The only exception is if you look the same as you did five years ago or whatever the case is.
Smartphones have some awesome camera capabilities now, so get your best friend to take updated photos of you and help you determine what pose and background looks good.
They should wait to divulge details later.'I prefer it when women wait a bit before revealing too much about their past relationships or children and let us get to know them as an individual first,' says Chris Hines, who met his girlfriend on Plenty Of Fish.'In the end it’s about you as a couple and if you find out that you're suited then the other person will probably be more accepting of the rest.
Too soon though and you might not get the chance to show how awesome you are.
