Your Perfect Dating Profile Pic
Put your best face forward.

January 24, 2014

Before you post a pic 
to a dating site, work 
the angles. A new study in the journal Perception found that tilting your head down slightly – 
30 degrees or so – 
can make you look 
about 10kg lighter than you would in a straight-on shot. The reverse happens when your 
head is tilted up. “This perspective makes the cheekbones look very broad, often an indicator of a heavier person,” 
says researcher Claus-
Christian Carbon. Now that you’ve mastered the art of being photogenic, find your girl at MH Match.
