Using humor to woo women is an age old technique that historically works better than simply having good looks or money. Even though those things help, you can’t build a relationship – causal or serious – on simply being attractive. If you’re looking for only sex, it might last a little while. However, even then you need some personality thrown in there. Chemistry isn’t based solely on the physical.
You can also broadcast that you’re searching for a woman who likes to laugh without explicitly spelling it out by putting up a humorous profile picture on an alternative dating website that shows off your personality. Not only will this pair you with a woman who has a great sense of humor as well, it will also help make you stand out from the rabble. There are a lot of men on dating websites looking for women, so you have to do what you can to stay ahead.
The In Situ Profile Picture
A Picture of Yourself in a Costume or Outlandish Outfit
This is a great opportunity to show off your clever side. The profile picture that shows you in a costume is a great opportunity to show off a particularly clever Halloween costume. If you’re geeky and like to make costumes, for example, you can get a funny photo out of that and be a little self-depreciating. The key to funny photos and why women like them is that they show you don’t take yourself too seriously.
A Photo That Isn’t You
Even though it’s usually against the rules, lots of people use photos of other things for their profile pictures that aren’t them. Don’t try this gimmick. Whether it’s a funny cat picture or something hilarious you saw online, no one else is going to think it’s quite as funny.
Profile pictures exist for a reason on dating websites, since the entire point is to see what people look like, what their personalities are like, and determine whether or not there might be chemistry. When a woman scrolls past your profile picture and it’s an image of a cat wearing sunglasses, there’s no way she’s going to click on your profile. She might love cats wearing sunglasses, but when you’re on a dating website, you’re not wasting time. It’s different than Facebook, where you already know who you’re friends with. When your friends on Facebook change their profile pictures to photos of their kids or pet, even though you know who it is, it can still be annoying even then, since they’re not as easily recognizable when you see them around the site. This goes double for dating websites.
