Think of it this way – she’s going to imagine herself in the lifestyle the photo conveys. You're visually communicating that you’re interesting, you'll take her to exotic places, and most importantly, that you have the financial means to do it.
You're the captain of the ship, the one in the driver's seat, the guy making the toast… This almost goes without saying, but make sure you’re the hottest one in the frame of any group photo you choose.

(Note: Don’t use this as the primary photo on your profile.
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.

If she has a bad impression of you from the start, she's not clicking on your profile or responding to your message.
