I’m back with another post in my series on being single.

And since this time of the year can sometimes be a bit of a downer for singles, I thought we’d lighten the mood with the topic that never fails to entertain — online dating photos.

There are endless photos of unidentifiable men on online dating sites, and if we see those, we’ll pass right over them. It seems to be how we humans roll, especially when trying to complete an online dating profile that’s horribly awkward to begin with.

Also, big thanks to a bunch of friends for chiming in on the topic.

And where do first impressions take place in real life? So step away from the shower, hand your friend a camera, and let us see you in your best non-bathroom light. The Macho, Macho Man Sorry to break it to you guys, but we aren’t looking for tickets to the “gun show” in your profiles. Trust us, anything will be better than the awkward unidentifiable blonde hair on your shoulder. The Shirtless Just as your mother probably told you at age 3 — “Son, get your clothes back on!! If we meet you at a party or a wedding or a coffee shop, I’m pretty positive that you are always going to be fully dressed for that first impression. And I know that many of you No-Shave-November fans are in it for a good cause. The Beer Fanatic (Ok, I thought it’d be nice to include at least one decent photo of my friend, GQ-model, and extremely-good-sport, Nate.) But this final one is just a little reminder that your online dating profile should be advertising , not your favorite beer.

Nor pics of you dripping sweat (and smelling lovely, we’re sure) at the gym. So it seems reasonable for you to throw half-naked photos all over your profile is a wee bit perplexing, to say the least. The Hunter Bloody dead animals that you shot and killed and hold up as a trophy for the world to know that you know how to hunt? But unless it’s November, or unless you’re a super hipster who knows how to rock a mustache (and even that can be debatable), it’s probably best to play it safe and either go all (beard) or nothin’ (nothin’). I’m all for enjoying drinks with friends, and posting a photo or two to document said enjoyment is NBD.

Common sense might make you think that posting an overdone trendy photo will lead to an immediate negative opinion from potential matches.

I’m pretty sure he would never post these photos on an online dating site.

Except maybe the ‘stache photo, since I think he and most of the world highly approve of #9.

;)My favorite thing in the world is spending time around the table with good people and good food.

Nor do you need to highlight in every section of your bio that you workout, count “going to the gym” as your top hobby, or are “looking for a girl who values physical fitness”. So even if you have the best abs ever (and especially if you don’t), just be a gent and put your clothes on — some nice, buttoned-up, normal clothes that your mother would approve of. But when you’re holding a beer in everysinglephoto? So put your coozie down, and grab a glass of water every now and then.

Trust us, we think it’s super cool that you take care of yourself and stay in shape. You know, gotta stay hydrated after those other beers…

So I created this blog full of simple, speedy, and irresistibly delicious recipes that are perfect for sharing with those you love.
