The participation of extreme sport activities, scuba diving, bungee jumping, sky diving, paragliding, rafting etc, advertise action hero, a new world explorer, liver of a dangerous lifestyle, throwing caution to the wind at any opportunity. Sounds quite James Bond, no? It’s an image everyone has wished to embody – the perfect conversation starter. It continues to suggest athleticism, and hobby, but perhaps these unspoken traits shown through extreme sport activity photos are no longer alluring – simple because everyone is doing it. 

But let me get towards a more direct point here. Online dating users want to see your bloody face. Every detail of physical appearance is erased, hidden under a giant scuba mask and breathable apparatus. This might be a silly thought, but I think it’s better to show your eyes than you graciously floating next to a shark with your thumbs up.
