Dr. Jess Carbino worked in the popular Dating service Tinder. She now works in another service, called Bumble. She is constantly studying people who wish to meet and have a relationship, and today she can tell that many of them are doing it completely wrong, starting with the publication of his photos. Describe what affects the attractiveness of the users of Dating sites, from the point of view of scientists.
If you pay attention to attractive models whose photos are printed on magazine covers? Almost never do they smile. Instead, they demonstrate some sort of grimace. They look sexy and attractive. Not surprisingly, many users of the services for singles trying to look like models and showed the faces in the photos.
Unfortunately, it’s not working. Why? I would not want to offend anyone, but the main reason is that most of the users of Dating services are not models. Sociologist Jess Carbino conducted a study and based on its results, it strongly recommends that photo with the face of a supermodel to publish a photo with your smile. The study suggests that the smile has a very significant impact on the attractiveness of the service user.
Jess Carbino declares that smile shows users good and open. This is exactly what you are looking for other users of the sites and services of acquaintances. It is not necessary to show himself cold and distant, like a model. In addition, some studies show that a smiling face is evaluated by people as more attractive. Two experiments conducted in Switzerland in 2014, show that the stronger the smile, the more attractive a person looks.
Interestingly, another study in 2011, published in the journal Emotion, showed that some facial expressions are more attractive than others and it depends on the sex. For example, men seem more attractive, showing pride and least attractive, showing happiness. With women it is the opposite. But the bashful look increased the attractiveness of both sexes.
And the last one. Anthropologist and author of “Anatomy of love” by Helen Fisher I agree with Jess Carbino. She told the colleagues from Business Insider the following:
“When you smile, those who see your smile, the same smile, albeit very briefly. Smiling, they use facial muscles that cause the release awash with neurochemicals in their brain associated with pleasure. They are likely to feel happy in your company”.
