Here’s 4 tips to follow if you want awesome profile pictures!
1: No group pictures with lots of people.
You may be the best friends in the world, but keep them out of your dating profile photos. Don’t make people work at working out which one is you in your profile picture – it’s a waste of time trying to figure who’s who in a group of friends!
2: Take the time to create a profile picture.
Don’t cut it out from a group picture, and definitely don’t remove an ex from the picture! And don’t use your driving license or passport picture!
3: Keep your face visible
no sunglasses, looking away or hat covering your face! Your picture is how people recognize you from all the other millions of people. (And while looking away from the camera may work if you’re in your teens or early twenties may be good advice to younger people-to look away and try to be moody in your late twenties or older looks posed and ridiculous).
4: Wear clothes you feel confident in
Wear the outfit which has got you the most compliments, and remember that when you feel confident you “project this” in your photos.

My client, Jennifer, and I have been coaching together for the past five months. Jennifer is a very attractive, high-powered professional in her early forties. Like many of my clients, she woke up one day and realized that she had attained almost everything she wanted in life except a partner to share it with. Somehow, this important piece had eluded her. Why was this beautiful, successful, sexy woman still single? Jennifer decided to hire a dating coach to help her find out. As luck would have it, that dating coach was me
Jennifer has been a joy to work with—she’s a dream client. I love her sense of humor and I have so much respect for the way she’s stretched herself and grown throughout the coaching process. I thought she’d be the perfect person to interview for this newsletter so that she could share her experience of what it’s like to work with a dating coach. So, without further adieu, here’s Jennifer!
Lisa: So, what prompted you to contact a dating coach?
Jennifer: Well, absolutely nothing was happening on the dating front, and it started to become clear to me that I needed help figuring out what I was doing wrong. Something happened that got me to start looking for a coach. Did I ever tell you that story?
L: No, but I would love to hear about it.
J: This is really embarrassing, but I was watching The Biggest Loser and there was this guy. I think he was about 24. He’d been overweight all his life and he’d ever been on a date, so he felt pretty lousy about himself. The show thought it might help him stay on his diet if they hired a dating coach for him. He was set up on dates and then the coach gave him feedback on how he did. It got me thinking: “If this guy can get someone to help him date, why can’t I?” So, right then and there, I went and Googled dating coaches… and whose name should pop up? I was able to book a session right away through your online calendar so I just went for it… and the rest is history.
L: I love it! What were you hoping to get from working with a dating coach?
J: My friends were willing to give me dating advice, but they knew me too well to tell me what my barriers were, and I certainly wasn’t able to see them on my own. So, I figured it would be helpful to get a fresh perspective. I knew that some of the behaviors that came so naturally to me must not be attractive to men. I didn’t know if maybe I seemed standoffish or if I just wasn’t being warm and open, but I felt that a dating expert could help me see what I was doing wrong.
L: What have you learned from the coaching?
J: OMG! I’ve learned a ton from you… so much that it’s hard to put into words. You’ve completely changed my mindset and outlook on dating. You encouraged me to embrace the softer side of myself. You told me that guys are not looking for a business associate; they want a playmate, a lover, and a best friend—someone they can love and feel safe opening up to.

Another thing you pointed out is that I rush around a lot. I’m a very type A personality. You encouraged me to slow down and be more present. You said that women who are present and in their bodies are more sensual and more attractive to men.
You also radically changed the way I think about the kind of men I should be looking for. You encouraged me not to be in such a hurry to meet someone. You said that I should enjoy the process of getting to know men and letting them get to know me. I had a lot of barriers up. I was always giving men the stiff arm and I certainly wasn’t practicing getting Naked. I was dating, but I wasn’t letting anyone get close to me: “You stay over there and I will tell you as much as I want to tell you when I want tell it to you.” That’s not good behavior if you want to form a relationship.
There is so much that I’ve learned. I think about what you tell me all the time, and I hope I’m putting it into practice. Just being able to describe all of this is monumental for me. These concepts are really simple, but if someone doesn’t know them, they could be sitting on the sidelines forever.
L: Would you mention three things you appreciate about having me as your coach?
J: The first thing is that your comments and observations are down-to-earth and real. I love how you discourage playing games of any kind. You’ve shown me how to go out on dates and practice getting emotionally naked so that a man can get to know and fall in love with the real me. The guidance you’ve given me is practical and it really works.
Another thing I appreciate about you is that I don’t feel like I’m just another client. I feel like I am your project, but in a good way. You truly care. You even touch base with me outside of the sessions. You are continually nudging me to be active and pursue dating. I genuinely feel that you want me to find a life partner as much as I do… and that’s unusual. I feel like you put your heart and soul into helping your clients.
The third thing I love about you is that you tell it like it is. I will never forget the time you called me to the carpet and said that I sucked as a client. You said that you were frustrated because I had everything going for me and you couldn’t help me if I wasn’t going to help myself. That was really impressive because I am paying you to coach me, but that didn’t matter to you. You were more committed to telling me what I needed to hear, not what I wanted to hear. You were trying to figure out a way to shake me up and get me moving in the right direction. I loved that. It was the greatest experience.
L: If people are on the fence about hiring a dating coach, what would you tell them?
J: Don’t be embarrassed about it. It’s okay to admit that you need help with this part of your life. Your prince won’t arrive if you’re stuck in your everyday life. You need to have someone to help you get out of your own way so that you can connect with your prince and let him in. We’re so willing to ask for help in other ways, whether it using a financial adviser or getting a personal trainer. There’s nothing wrong with recognizing that you need a little help in the dating world. I had to see that I couldn’t do it myself. I had to see that I needed an outside opinion. I had to get out of my own way. Don’t be embarrassed to embrace learning about the dating process. Working with you is one of the best things I’ve ever done.
