Professionally done photos are great, but you can tell the difference between professionally done photos and stock photos.Stock photos normally have plain backgrounds (e.g., white) and people who seem just a little bit familiar (because you’ve seen them in other stock photos).
That’s a crazy statistic, and you’d think that someone who genuinely cares about online dating would run their profile through a grammar tool, ask a friend to look at it, or at least look out for the red squiggle.
Photos on a dating profile are like eyes on a person — they’re the windows to the soul.
It’s not hard to take photos from a stock photo site (or any other site, for that matter), so take advantage of resources like Tin Eye and Google’s reverse image search.
Time is the common denominator here — most scammers don’t want to put in hours on their profile or messages.
