If you haven’t tried online dating yet or you’re thinking about trying it but are put off by what you’ve heard listen up, because Independent Dating are here to dispel some of those nasty rumours.

Make sure to upload only the clearest, best and most recent photos.

You’d think that this would be a no brainer, but the more you surf the personals online, the more you’ll be shocked at the sheer idiocy of some people and the pictures they submit to dating sites. Photos are your first line of attack, and if they suck, no-one will even read your wonderful, well thought out profile! I’m not telling you that you need to go out and get professional shots taken, but I have friends who have done very well going exactly that route.
