Here’s an article by Action Jackson, creator of the Matchbook Method program, on when it is acceptable to have pictures with your shirt off in your online dating and social networking profiles…
FACT: Survey after survey shows the body part that women vote sexiest and most desirable on men is the abs.
So how do you post shirtless photos in your online profile without lowering your value and looking like a try-hard tool?
Whether it’s MySpace, Facebook, dating sites, or e-personals, any top online dating expert will tell you posting shirtless photos is a big “no no.” In general, they are correct. But you’ve worked hard for that physique. So here are Two Simple Ways how to get away with it AND raise your value at the same time:
STRATEGY #1: Take photos where your body is NOT the main focus.
Don’t think you have to hone in on your body for girls to notice all the hard work you’ve done at the gym. They notice. The point is that modesty is much more attractive than blatant obviousness.
A well-known example where the body is the main focus is the infamous self-taken mirror shot. This is possibly the absolute best way to scare women off. Want to add salt to the wound?…Pull your shirt up as you take the pic!
Examples of shirtless opportunities that will raise your value are candid action shots that are athletic or water related where you’re not posing for the camera (i.e. drumming, sailing, hiking, surfing, skating, swimming, etc.)
***lifting weights doesn’t count because the activity itself comes off as bragging. Who takes pictures of themselves working out? Honestly.
Not sure if your shirtless photo will lower or raise your attractiveness to women? Here’s a super easy way to tell: Look at the photo and ask yourself, “Does it look like I specifically took my shirt off for the camera?” Or, “If photography was never invented would I still have my shirt off at that moment?” If the answer is “Yes” then you’re good to go. If the answer is “No” then fight all your instinctual urges and trash that photo!
STRATEGY #2: Take photos where there’s a REASON you’re shirtless.
Take photos in situations where it’s the social-norm to have your shirt off. Examples include the pool, lake, beach, water park, boat, BBQ on a hot day, etc. However, even in these shirtless scenarios you still want to make sure you’re not trying to pose or flex those abs for the camera. Try and get pictures with friends who are also in their swimsuits. And photos with hot girls in bikinis is a fabulous way to create social proof AND take the primary attention off your own physique.
But listen! Don’t go showing this article to every guy you know. After all, the guys who pose for their sexy abs shots are the reason a regular joe like me is able to steal beautiful women out from underneath their noses.
