Afternoon to all the members out there throughout the world! Today you are all hopefully enjoying a nice July day and are looking forward to checking out some profiles on ManPlay! Given that there are so many hot men on ManPlay at any given time, it can seem tempting to not always make sure your own profile is up to date and showing the best side of you possible. When you only have so much time you can devote to being online in any day and there are so many hot ManPlay members out there, it can be tempting to spend your time looking at the millions of hot men that have profiles. But it IS important to make sure your profile is giving a solid representation of yourself, from your comments about yourself down to what your interests are. And then there’s another thing that is very, very important: The profile photos! You know it’s true even if you don’t want to admit it. The more photos you have that make you look your best, the more messages you are likely to receive. And before you start thinking that isn’t true, think about what makes you click on someone’s profile in the first place. Unless you’re one of the few out there that legitimately reads every profile as well as looking at photos so that you see everyone who is on any site, you are likely looking for the profiles that have a photo that catches your attention right away, so you are also doing that. With that in mind, it’s still important to use pictures that both accurately depict you and also show you at your best! Here are some profile tips on how to do that.
First off, check your lighting! How many times have you seen photos that are dark and it’s hard to make out exactly what he looks like? He could be a hottie or someone you wouldn’t look at twice if you saw in the flesh. Keep the mystery out of it and make sure you are well lit in the photographs so you look your best and you are also letting people looking at your profile see you in all your honest glory! That doesn’t mean you need to blast spotlights all around you, but just make sure you are clearly visible and no part of you is lit up more than you should be. Too much light can make it seem like your skin tone or hair color is different than it actually is.
One thing that I always suggest people do is avoid pictures that they take of themselves in the mirror! I understand this is an obvious option because you are more comfortable making faces that you think are sexy when you are by yourself creating your profile but it’s far better to get a trusted friend to help you out and take some pictures of you. I always find that it makes people seem a bit egotistical to be taking pictures of themselves in the mirror and I’ve heard from many users of the site that they find it a turn-off as well. Why take the risk of turning someone off just based on the photo that you’ve uploaded to your profile?
Since we’re trying to make your profile as accurate a depiction of yourself as possible, let’s talk for a moment about which photos you end up uploading. Are they just going to be the ones where you look your absolute best even if that’s not how you generally look? This can be a bit tricky because you are likely putting in more of an effort regarding your appearance when going on a date itself than you would when at home by yourself, so that’s not entirely an accurate representation of yourself either. I advocate having a selection of images, where you look good in all of them but some of them you look your absolute best and a couple of them are more representative of what you might look like if any of these men happened to run into you on a lazy Sunday while you’re running errands. Don’t forget that reality is sexy for a lot of men and they aren’t looking for someone who looks like he just hopped out of a magazine spread in the latest runway looks.
What do you make of these tips? Are you in the camp that definitely wants your pictures to show off as much of your hot body (a body which you likely work hard to keep in shape!) as possible or do you like to leave some things to the imagination? Have you ever been burned by finding someone incredibly alluring based on their profile and then finding them to look drastically different once meeting in the flesh? Let us know in the comments and be sure and discuss with other members in the message boards of ManPlay. As well, take a look around at a bunch of existing profiles on the site (like you wouldn’t already!) and see if you can pick out what draws your attention and what makes you want to move onto the next profile. You might be surprised when you stop and think about what you like and what you don’t about the profile pics of other members. Happy hunting!
