I am into photography as a hobby, so I can take professional looking photos of myself. But, I worry about the possibility of coming off as a catfish who stole the photo from somewhere, if I were to use one as a profile picture on dating apps/sites.
However, if I have a bad picture on my dating profile, it wouldn’t make me look like I am being honest when I say that photography is something I am into.
Am I overthinking this?
Yes, you are overthinking this. There is nothing wrong with using a professional looking photo on your dating profile on dating apps/sites.
The key is that you make sure you blend those professional looking photos with other types of photos that show you participating in activities you love.
People are a lot less likely to look at you as a catfish when they have a good number of eclectic photos of you involved in different activities than if you are only using professional looking photos that appear as though they were taken in a professional studio.
