To smile or not to smile?

With all this data at our fingers tips, it is time to explore it! It has been found that women find happy men less sexually attractive than those with expressions that show pride or hint that they have done wrong and know it, according to Canadian researchers. However it must be stressed they looked only at initial reactions of sexual attractiveness, and were not recommending men adopt a no-smile policy for a long-term relationship.

So what approach do people take when it comes to selecting photos for an online dating profile? We took a sample group of 3,000 photos (half men and half woman) to find the average number of users smiling in their uploaded photos, grouped by their gender, stated at registration. 

Below shows a graph of which pose was adopted by each gender in their photos uploaded to DATEnhance. 

Which is the most common expression in photos?

Our thoughts...

We found that woman, in general, are more likely to flash a smile in pictures than men, but also are more likely to opt for a silly pose.

*Disclaimer* We are not saying that by doing these things you are seen as any more/less attractive, and you are certainly at liberty to pose whatever way you wish. We are simply using the data to test which photos make for a successful dating profile. There will be anomalies in any situation, but a happy person pictured is the most attractive to an onlooker. 

It all depends on your desired outcome of course, but if you are using an online dating app/website to find meaningful relations, always dazzle with a smile. Unless you’re a trained model, you’re actually more likely to look angry, bored, annoyed, threatening, crazy, or just seem a bit uninterested than look sexy if you opt for a 'serious face' photo. You’ll look more attractive in your photos if you flash those pearly whites, leave the posing to the professionals!

Individuals that see success with online dating are not necessarily the most attractive people in the room, but by smiling with teeth, you are 14% more likely to get a right swipe on Tinder. A genuine smile indicates that you're kind, warm and approachable. For a deeper analysis into this study, click below!
