Online dating comes across as intimidating if you haven’t dipped your toes in the dating pool for a while. But here’s the thing: it’s the best way to make the ultimate first impression, find a guy (or girl) that ticks all the boxes, and you’re able to swipe left at any time because there is absolutely no commitment required.
However, when it comes to your profile you seriously need to get your style act together. It will represent who you are and what you’re looking for, and it should ultimately attract the kind of partner you want.
1 Make sure you stand out without letting too much ‘hang out’. Show just enough to be sexy but cover enough to be classy.
2 Add some colour. It will make possible suitors pause on your eye-catching profile and admire your boldness.
3 Add one or two natural pics, while still keeping it cute – try a cropped top, jeans and sneaks with neutral makeup. You don’t want everyone thinking you’re hiding something or that you’re all about the party all the time.

1 Don’t only have group shots. No-one will know which girl you are, no matter how on fleek you look.
2 Don’t try to dress like someone you’re not. Your clothes should represent you and you alone. Otherwise, what’s the point? #JustDoYou
3 Don’t go too loose or too tight with your clothes. You’ll either hide your stunning figure or you’ll end up looking like you’re a bit too ‘loose’…
Don’t be shy. Put yourself out there and have some flirty fun. Seriously, how often do you get to custom-tailor that first impression with your ideal crush?
