Is there anyone in the Catholic Match team that helps FIX profiles to make them seem more appealing? I am so frustrated!

Tara,

I'm not sure that the CM team works on things like that,, but i know several Members have asked for help with their profile and many Members have responded back with favorable comments.
Maybe you can ask for Suggestions either here in a Forum setting or in Email? scratchchin Praying

I can attest that the CM staff loves to edit profiles whether you like it or not. rolling eyes

First advice: set a profile photo. Very few people take profiles without a photo into account.

Have a good friend take several dozen images of you (your facial expressions will not be natural with a stranger taking them) with a digital camera and NOT a phone or tablet. No flash, no bright sun which causes squinting or shadows across your face, no sunglasses. Preferably outdoors on a cloudy day for optimum lighting. Avoid distracting backgrounds. Cropped head and shoulders and full length. Some doing activities you enjoy, but don't "pose."

Load them into your computer and edit them down to the most flattering.

Just be yourself- those looking for perfection should be avoided like the plague. Smarter people than me can advise you on the rest!

Peace Dove

What you can also do is record a video of yourself out and about running or something. Take it with a phone on a stand and then just take a snapshot from the video. I have a Samsung and it takes seemingly high quality videos and pics.
