Though many of us pretend otherwise, but let’s be honest that as guys, looks are important to us whether we are dating online or offline. There is no denying that personality is crucial and character cannot be compromised on, but if you don’t miss a heartbeat when you see your partner’s face, life expectancy of your relationship is likely to be shorter than Britney Spears marriage.
On any Chinese dating sites, profiles with photographs receive ten times more views and responses than those without, and not without a good reason. Writing to a cyber dater without first finding out what they look like can be tricky. It has happened with guys that their chats and e-mails went without a hitch, the telephone calls lasted for hours, but when they finally either persuaded the girl for a video chat or met her face-to-face, they find themselves staring at someone they won’t be caught dead with. Now comes the real trouble as how to back away without appearing shallow and wussy. It’s too early for ‘it’s not you, it’s me’ for you have not been really together and with everything else going well, there is practically nothing to blame except looks.
On the other hand, if you don’t upload your own picture along with your profile on an online Chinese dating site, you are missing great girls and numerous dating opportunities every day. Choose the photographs carefully and upload only the latest pictures that show you in a positive but realistic light, and you’ll get far more responses to choose from. Keep adding pictures on monthly basis.
Pick a partner with a picture, if possible several pictures and insist on a video chat even before you decide to like her just to ensure that she is the same person whose picture you viewed along with the profile.
