Don’t wear a hat/sunglasses in every picture
If someone is wearing a hat in every single picture, I instantly wonder what they are hiding. Nobody wants to be hatfished!
Even if you wear a hat 24/7 in reality, please show us a hatless picture. I get guys may be a bit self-conscious about going bald but if you’re serious abiut meeting up, we are gonna see eventually. The same applies to sunglasses in every picture too. Stop hiding!
Leave out the passive aggressive bio
So your pictures are spot on. Hows that bio? I have come across some very passive-aggresive and downright rude bios before. These alone have made me unmatch or swipe left. There is a difference between appearing dominating if a sub/dom thing is what you’re looking for but coming across aggresively isn’t going to get you far.
Avoid the group photo trap
Ok, one group photo maybe but don’t let it be the first one we see. If all your photos are of you in a group or with someone else, you are going to be missing out on many matches. It’s great you’ve got loads of friends but it’s Tinder, we want to see you, not your mates.
Leave the filters for Snapchat
You may assume this is aimed at girls. Trust me, I have seen many guys using filters too. If you’re chatting to someone with the hopes of meeting them in person, they will find out you don’t have line-free Barbie skin, little cat ears, or ‘cute’ tattoo’d all over your face.
Actually use a photo of yourself
Pets, cars, blank boxes, full scuba outfit… Where is the picture of you? I don’t want to match with a cocker spaniel (even though he is very cute). These kind of profiles usually the bio “We shouldn’t be shallow and judge on looks. Get to know me first”. If this is how you feel, try one of the many other dating apps. Tinder is a shallow place. If you aren’t comfortable putting a picture up, then Tinder probably isn’t for you.
On the opposite end of the spectrum “Married man. Looking for extra curricular activities.” Again, there are much better websites if you want to be a cheating pr*ck.
