There’s no doubt that in the world of online dating adding a photo to your profile is a must.
It’s accepted that that profiles with a photo are much more likely to receive more messages from other daters than those without a photo.
Members may think that profiles without photos are not be real. Or they may think they have been posted by people who feel uncomfortable using a dating website. The days of online dating being viewed as a place for misfits or those unlucky in love are long gone. And so if you post without an image, it’s likely that you’ll be viewed as someone who’s not serious about online dating. The result is that you won’t receive many (if any) messages from other users.
Datepositive understands the need for privacy, especially with a niche dating website like ours. We offer three settings for photos: they can be seen by everyone; just by Premium members and Favourites; of your favourites only. This gives members control over who sees their photo and removes any anxiety about privacy issues.
So we encourage our members to upload a photo and select the viewing options you are comfortable with.
