After just a few days on Match.com and Chemistry.com, I've discovered what could be a lucrative next career -- as a photographer for guys wanting to make good matches. Sheesh. Half the match hits I get have no photos whatsoever, and three quarters of the other half have godawful out-of-focus pictures snapped with camera phones, pictures of their dogs, kids, families, buddies, cars, boats, favorite vacation hot spots, etc.
Guys, seriously -- post at least one good photo that shows off your face. Take the time to put a decent shirt on and spend a bit of time on your grooming. Comb your hair. Trim your beard/mustache.
Women care about this stuff. (And, for what it's worth, I bounce every single match that doesn't have a photo without ever bothering to read the profile. I assure you I'm not alone in that.)
