Why You Should Always Smile in Your Profile Pic

Why You Should Always Smile in Your Profile Pic

A pout mouth might give you better cheekbones, but a smile is scientifically proven to give you more matches on dating sites. Dr. Jess Carbino, the in-house sociologist at Bumble said research suggests that when analyzing a dater’s profile pic, “smiling makes such a significant difference” in whether someone gets swiped right on.

Not Everyone is a Model

Of course, we all want to look our most attractive in our profile pics. And when we think of people who are attractive, we generally think of models. But when was the last time you saw a model smiling down the runway? Smoldering looks and pouty lips might help sell clothes, but if you’re not a model, a strong smile is a better bet to attract a future mate. Researchers in Switzerland found a direct correlation between the intensity of a smile and how good-looking someone was considered. So smile wide for those right swipes!

What Smiling Says About You

These days, a profile pic can be your first impression. And if your first impression is a serious, smoldering look, that could give off the impression that you’re cold and distant. Two qualities most people aren’t looking for in a potential date. Conversely, Dr. Carbino says a smile makes you seem “kind and approachable,” which is valuable not just for daters, but anyone looking to make a connection, whether it’s business or personal.

Get a Better Smile

So you want to attract more prospective partners with your smile. But what if you don’t feel like your smile is attractive? If you’re feeling self-conscious about your smile, don’t despair. It’s never been easier to get a perfect smile. Professional teeth-whitening services will make an instant impact, and can brighten your grin up to 10 shades lighter. Crowns can help hide imperfections in specific teeths. But for the biggest impact, veneers are the way to go if you’re looking for a movie-star smile that is sure to dazzle in any profile picture.
