TAIMI’s top 7 tips for a perfect profile picture

TAIMI — the world’s largest LGBTQI+ platform that features a social network and dating app offers profile advice that is guaranteed to catch people’s attention

In honor of World Photography Day, TAIMI is offering its top 5 tips for a perfect profile photo. As the world’s first LGBTQI+ social network and dating app TAIMI knows that choosing the best pictures for a dating profile is definitely easier said than done.

Some people love selfies, others prefer portrait shots, and then there are some of us that seriously dislike taking pictures. So, to help everyone TAIMI is giving out a few useful tips to make your profile shine bright.

7. Showcase yourself!

TAIMI has very clear set of rules and guidelines for its users in terms of what is and isn’t allowed, but the world’s first LGBTQI+ social network and dating app encourages all its users to showcase themselves freely. So, don’t be afraid to show off your face.

6. Smile

Now, you don’t have to always show off those pearly whites, but a pleasant smile will definitely get people to like your photos much more. Actually about 25–30% more! So, go ahead, smile for the camera!

5. Hobbies

People are nosey. So, tease them a bit with photos of yourself doing something you truly love, like painting, travelling, hiking, etc. Just make sure the picture isn’t too busy with background objects. You have to be the star in the photo!

4. Social Butterfly

If you’re not the type of person to hang out with friends and have fun on a night out — no need to worry, just skip this one. However, if you enjoy visiting hotspots and spending time with friends — post a few pics of yourself on the social scene. These tend to catch a lot of attention from users.

3. Pets

Take photos with your furry friends. But do not borrow a cat or a dog for a cute pic, that’s a big no!

2. Filters

Avoid using cutesy filters and masks instead opt for a classy black and white or white balance filter to enhance your photo. Don’t go overboard, there’s no need to make yourself look too mysterious.

1. All by yourself

This should be a no-brainer, but you’d be surprised how many people post photos with friends, family, exes, etc. This is your profile, so you have to be in the photo, not your bestie (sorry BFFs). Do yourself a favor and only select photos where you are by yourself.

TAIMI is a social network and dating app specifically for LGBTQI+ people regardless of where they identify on the gender and sexuality spectrum. This advice is for everyone looking to ramp up their profile and TAIMI presence, but in no way is it to encourage changing yourself to please others. You must be the one to like your profile photo first, so think of this as a guide to pick the best photos for your TAIMI dating and social network profile.
