Yes, you looked great, but you want to date someone who is attracted to you right now.
So select photos that look good, but could also in some universe be reasonably understood to be you.
The obvious points of picking photos are to make them (1) flattering, and (2) accurate.
That photo where your skin looks all glowy and you can’t see your cankles? But the photo from 6 years, 25 pounds and two high-stress jobs ago?
Some sites are better at weeding them out than others. So they may appear local but are really in a different location.
Most fake profiles have one photo of an attractive person, but there are a lot that have moved on to the more average approach.
Trying to make their fake profile seem as real as possible.
With sites like Facebook for example, it is pretty easy to obtain a few lifelike images opposed to the airbrushed model photos that have often been used in the past. If you suspect the person you are speaking with is a con artist, research their screen name, email address and phone number.
POF seems to be one of the better sites at monitoring for fake profiles and they usually do not last that long if they are created. Sometimes you find the same image on multiple sites with different profiles. If you are a bit more serious, you can use spokeo to find out information on an email address, name and phone number.
But you need to be smart when online dating to avoid being scammed. Look for things like broken English or inconsistencies. Talking about how they are God fearing, want to get married and so on. If you are chatting with them, keep note of inconsistencies.
