We all have those friends who seem to be able to fit online dating seamlessly into their lives – you know the ones; when you meet them on a Saturday afternoon they’ve already had brunch out with someone hot, whilst the most you have achieved so far that day is making a marmite sandwich in your pyjamas. So how do they do it, these happy, bouncy, energetic online daters? What’s their secret? Well, here are a few of them…
So if you’ve got a load of moody selfies as your profile photos – you need to read on….
Here at Hey Saturday, we’re always saying that you need to invest in your dating photos if you’re serious about finding love online. But now, you don’t just need to take our word for it, as some brand new research proves just exactly what we’ve been banging on about (but hey, we don’t like to say we told you so…!)

Meet the one woman who rocks my (business) world – Nicole
Running your own business is hard work and can often be lonely and knackering, so to do it well and to keep your sanity, I quickly learnt that you need to surround yourself with the right people. I am very lucky in that I have my awesome bf who supports me on many levels (finance, emotional, admin, practical – i.e. makes the dinner lol) but with the growing number of clients that I’ve been working with over the last year, it became very clear that I needed support on a client management level – I needed another photographer.

How to rock your spring photo shoot
Finally, spring is here and it’s actually the best time of year to book your photo shoot. There is usually a lot of light around but not the harsh, strong light that you can get during the summer.

It’s time to recognise that you really need your dating photos to work for you, not against you.
