My beautiful friend Jess has recently decided to brave the world of online dating and asked me to do some portraits she could use on Guardian Soulmates. I think it’s a great idea to invest in some professional portraits for this as it can be a wonderful boost to your ego at the same time. An hour after we’d uploaded her new profile picture, Jess had eight new potential dates! I knew it was a good picture, but even I was seriously impressed by the instant demonstration of its power. Here’s Jess and if you’d like to go out with her (and I hope nobody would be so shallow as to judge on looks alone even though she is amazingly gorgeous) you’d better be very special indeed because she is. She doesn’t live in Leeds by the way, she lives in Dorset. Just in case.
