Here’s a comparison so you can see how signalling works: Which guy do you think she’d rather spend time with?
(Spoiler alert: it’s not the couch napper.)The secret lies in evolution – that's right, we're talking Darwin, survival of the fittest, alpha male theory.

You should always be the only person in your main pic.)A lot of guys mistakenly think that including a group shot is mandatory, because it makes them look more social and outgoing.
While it’s true that a group photo does convey those traits, it only helps you if you look great in the photo AND you’re the most attractive one in it.
Most group photos fail on one (or both) of those fronts, and it ends up working against you in the long run because it actually lowers your perceived attractiveness.
It’s probably easier to use a photo of you in a social setting, like a cool cafe or outdoor park.
