Talking to Stewart, Steinberg, and Spira for this feature brought us to one very vital conclusion: We’ve been doing it all wrong. Everything.
From our Rihanna-frequent hair color changes to our (classy!! Classy.) bikini pic to our black and white and no-red-to-be-found wardrobe, it seems our dating profile photo choices don’t exactly scream, “Click me–I’m the one you’ve been search engine-ing for!” So this holiday season, it’s time to get our online dating game faces on (and no, we aren’t talking that who-should-text-who-first nonsense): We resolve to wear more red on our bods and less on our lips. We’ll upload more recent photos so as not to frighten our first dates with our current ghostly wintry visage upon meeting. We might even banish that bikini pic to the good ole recycling bin (even though our mother liked it so much she had it blown up and framed on our wall at home).
…Ok, that one might have to stay after all. Though we’ll admit–it is quite a relief to blame our lack of e-dating success thus far entirely on our fashion choices. Could a crop of carefully curated photos actually be the key to to us finding our match (dot com)? We’ll just have to wait and see–and if not, there’s just under a month left to our paid subscription anyway!
Happy online dating to all, and to all a good night.
