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.That suggests you won't take dating seriously either.Because I’m here to help, Joe the Intern and I have put together a list of 18 photos that should be deleted from your online dating profile immediately.

If we can tell you feel awkward in the photo, we feel awkward too. There is absolutely no reason to have a photo of your face making sweet, mysterious love to a bathroom mirror. Just like the morning coffee crowd isn’t interested in seeing your ample treasure trail, neither is the general online dating population. These photos usually come with a caption like, “Just hanging with my friends” when really they should say, “I’m the one in the background looking dejected and giving you the crazy eyes.” There’s nothing wrong with including a few photos taken with friends.
