Now don’t get me wrong. I actually love a selfie. When I get together with my girlfriends we always end up with a series of selfies taken before we go out once we have drunk ourselves pretty! We even continue to take them when we are out and about. Often people pass by and offer to take a photo of us thinking they are being kind, but where is the fun in that? The selfie is always better than a posed pic!
I’m even the proud owner of a selfie stick. Oh yes I am! I took it along to New Years Eve celebrations last night and I got the usual eye rolls when I got it out as everyone thinks it is lame – UNTIL they play with it. Then it is the best thing ever invented. Even better than Tinder…
But the mirror selfie is sooooooo 2014. It has to go. It never looks good on a dating profile. Never. There are a few different varieties, but pretty much they all look the same….
From the shirtless & headless shot above, to the shots that show more phone than face:
Or a personal fave, the feigned casual / natural pose:
Really, if you are going to do a mirror selfie you should go the whole hog, own it and really bring it:
Or get creative, use some flair! Do it backwards:
Or do a tandem mirror selfie with an accomplice:
It’s such a shame that there are so many eligible bachelors online, but so little time to date them all!
