So you’ve taken the plunge and signed your single life away to an online dating site. In the virtual world, your dating profile is your shop front, and you want the lad or lass of your dreams to be lured inside by your unique metaphorical objets d’arts.
With any luck they’ll leave praising your customer service, taking with them your phone number and the prospect of a real-life date.
But you’re not a boutique on Portobello Road, you’re a human being, so I’ll dispense with the hogwash allegories and get down to the nitty gritty.
But please, ensure that you’re of the same ballpark age, weight and have the roughly the same amount of teeth as in your picture.
And, in ensuring your features are clearly visible, you’ll also eliminate the suspicion that, for example, you may be missing an eye or have a mole the size of a satsuma on your chin.
