Selfies 101

The selfie fails I encountered on the dating apps always managed to stun. Here are some basic rules that bachelors (& bachelorettes) should keep in mind.:

  • Take from above not below. No one should be looking up your nose.

  • Try out a shot where you’re not scowling angrily just to see what you think.

  • Consider wearing clothes.

  • Check background for fist-holes-through-drywall and any unfortunate bathroom-related ephemera.

  • Remember to take off your wedding ring if you’re pretending to be single.

  • Consider bathing, shaving and putting on clean clothes.

  • Save any bloody carcasses of prey for show-and-tell once you’ve scored a date.
