Online dating can be hugely successful ... but just like offline dating, you've got to play it right. For starters, you've got to have a photo that gets someone's attention, so dating expert James Swanwick suggests a collage instead of just one photo. "That stands out. If you've got a collage of four, the guy is like, 'I'm going to look at this a little bit closer,'" Swanwick explains during an appearance on The Doctors.
"The other mistake is women tend to look into the camera and then take selfies," he adds. "That doesn't really work for a guy. You want natural photos. I always encourage my female clients to hire a wedding photographer or a professional photographer ... to take photos of you in your natural state -- not staring down the camera and posing, but actually doing things like walking in the park, running or having a coffee. As long as you're portraying an image of you loving your life, of being happy, you are going to attract a great person into your life."
He also suggests that especially with online dating, "It's important to be a little bit of a challenge and to tease the man a little bit." Watch the video above to find out Swanwick’s strategy for making that happen, along with the two words every woman should know to get a man's attention.
