The most messaged woman on OKCupid shares her secrets to boost your dating profile
As the most messaged woman on dating site OKCupid, Lauren Urasek knows a thing or two about relationships.
The New York based makeup artist has already published a book, entitled Popular: The Ups and Downs of Online Dating from the Most Popular Girl in New York City, and shared some more tips of making your dating profile stand out among a sea of singletons online.
She suggests posting a full body photo, a "realistic" one and gave tips to Cosmopolitan about how to flatter your figure with posing.
"I like to pose with my stomach in, chest up, butt out, and arm not directly pressed against me," she said.
"I vignetted the border to take the focus away from the other people sitting around me, but I didn’t crop them out entirely because it helps to show that I have a life and I’m out in the world doing things."
Laura also said not to be afraid of selfies, but be sure to stick to good light, don't use Instagram filters and never zoom in.
And finally, be sure to post a picture of something interesting to show you have a life outside of taking selfies.
"I think it's good to have at least one shot with minimal makeup on so everyone can see the real you," she added.
