 SILLY FACE

If you’re trying to lure Mr. Right on an Internet match making site with a photo, post one where you’re looking silly instead of glamorous, or sexy  that’s the suggestion of the online matching service OkCupid.com. They found that photos showing a girl doing something

unusual like making a silly face or playing a violin are 40% more likely to get responses. The second best pose showed the women with a dog or bird or other pet. The next most effective type of picture was one showing her having fun with pals, like romping on the beach or playing a game, followed by one of the subject sipping a drink. Why are wacky poses better for getting responses? “Your picture is meant to show your personality,” explains OkCupid.com head Christian Rudder, “and make it easier for someone to break the ice.”
