Can a New Nose Get You More Right Swipes?
In a world where dating increasingly consists of expressing interest from behind a screen, your profile picture (the center of which is often your nose) can determine whether a woman gives you a right swipe or whether you are looking at another night alone with only the Yankees playing on TV to keep you company.
Recent research shows that online dating has significantly increased since 2013, and apps such as Tinder, Grindr, Hinge, and Happn have only increased its use since now you can do it right on your phone. Additionally, online dating has lost much of its stigma, with five percent of Americans who are in a marriage or committed relationship saying they met their significant other online. Because digital dating shows no sign of stopping, singletons might want to consider stepping up their online game if they are looking for a soulmate.
In online dating, a decision to meet up—or not—can happen in a matter of minutes, and likely happens after viewing a few photos. Short, snappy bios are important, but experts say that having a variety of photos in a dating profile is key in attracting a partner. Additionally, the more natural the photos look, the more appealing they are (so selfies, mirror pics, and cheesy grins should be left out of the mix).
But even with the right angles, cropping, and let’s be honest, filters, a photo loses meaning if the person in it doesn’t like the way he or she looks.
To be sure, true love is certainly not based on physical appearances alone, but if your nose is a feature you aren’t feeling confident about, it could be impacting the way you view yourself—and the way you display yourself to others… including those you are trying to attract online.
Don’t let not liking how you look hold you back! Do something about it! Plastic surgery is not just something women do, it is something everyone does when they want to like the way they look, and gain the confidence that comes along with that.
Even a slight modification can impact self-esteem levels, which can change the way you present yourself to the world, and in particular, the digital dating world.
