I help singles identify their romantic goals, pick a site (or multiple sites or apps), craft catchy and engaging profiles, select (and sometimes shoot) awesome flattering photos, search for and get in touch with other singles, turn those messages into dates, and turn those dates into happy relationships. Online dating doesn’t have to feel like homework or a kick to your self esteem.
You’ll naturally feel more confident about your online and offline game when you start working with me.
Since then I’ve continued to study online dating to improve the overall experience for my clients.
As each site and algorithm gets more complex, my corpus of online dating knowledge keeps growing!
The optimal pose for guys' pics: don't smile, don't make eye contact.
I help people with all aspects of navigating the weird and (mostly) wonderful world of online dating!That means I help with a little bit of everything: choosing which site to use, figuring out how to fill out a profile in a compelling and fascinating yet accurate way, shooting or selecting great photos, figuring out who to message or try to go out with, making dates happen with those people, and navigating those early stages of dating into a relationship. My husband and I met on Craigslist—the ad I wrote was actually voted best-of.I also learned how to coach and improve the way others write about themselves in order to help out my friends and acquaintances, and before I knew it, I was charging people to keep up with all the requests!I finally left my job in the software industry to pursue a career as The Heartographer full time at the beginning of 2013.
We've synthesized the findings from all their statistical analysis and number-crunching in the slideshow below to present a few tips on what poses, settings, camera angles, and clothes work best for dating site profiles.

Ok Cupid found that making eye contact with the camera is effective with some facial expressions, but less so with others. For both sexes, not smiling while making eye contact is an ineffective pose.
