I am doing my research. I have visited many sites that discuss online dating. On these sites, there are lists of precautions or “red flags,” things to avoid. Today I thought we would visit one that I found listed as a red flag on many sites….The Blurry Profile Photo.
I have consulted numerous dating sites for their opinion on the blurry profile photo. Most of the experts agree that this may be a red flag. Here is the consensus.
*If someone has only one picture and it is blurry they may be trying to hide something. This person may be insecure about who they are and could be misrepresenting themselves.
*Many agree that if there is only one blurry photo in a group of clear images, it is probably an innocent mistake.
*It could be a fake profile.
*If the person does not take the time to put up a precise and accurate photo they may not be taking this dating process seriously. They may not be committed to the process.
*And then again it may just be that this want to be dater is technically challenged. They may have cropped down a photo so much that it has lost its clarity.
I have over 100 matches on my dating site. I am going to go through them now and delete any that have only one photo, and that one image is blurry. I am noticing many folks don’t put any pictures up at all, but that is a topic for another time.
