Online Dating Profile Photos – When in Doubt, Wear Red

1 Comment

Huff Post Live - RedOn Huffington Post Live, we spent time talking about online dating profile photos and how men respond more frequently to women wearing the color red.

The conversation was based on Adam Alter’s book, Red Tank Pink. Alter, a professor of marketing and psychology at NYU’s Stern School of Business insists that the color red or having a red border around your online dating profile is an absolute must.

Joining us was Gabe Zichermann, Gamification expert, who met his boyfriend on mobile dating app,

Sharing one of my favorite quotes from the late fashion designer Bill Blass, “When in doubt, wear red,” I concurred with Alter’s findings that red does indeed have an impact on the response to dates.

    I started to notice in the 80’s that I noticed women that were wearing Red. If a woman wears Red and Black than I notice her. Another thing I like is a white dress w/a flowery print. A white blouse w/a flowery print works too.
