I'm a 24-year old guy who's noticed that when I go out in public, girls (even if I've never met them before) that I find attractive will come up to talk to me/show interest in me. But when I try out dating sites (tinder, pof, etc.) I struggle WAY more. Every time I find a girl who I'm attracted to or seem to share interests with, they rarely match with me/message or show interest. I've been told I have a "young" or "innocent" face before so I'm wondering if I look too young online, where other factors like being 6'4" help me look more my age in public. I'm thinking this might be the reason, because when I DO match with someone they're usually 18 or 19 😑. I attached some of the photos i use on dating sites, can you give me some input about why these pics don't seem to be working for me online? Or why you would "swipe left" to me or choose not to match or start a conversation? It's really confusing to me, I'm thinking I might just lose the apps and start got out to bars every night lol!
You look like a nice friendly guy. I'd say take of the pics with girls though. Usually drinking pics aren't good either, but yours isn't too bad actually... Only the girl and guitar pic makes it worse lol... the three combined you look like a guy who goes out a lot and performs and has groupies lol, just taking out the pic with the girls would change it. Generally, guys choose people without pics of them with some dude with his arm round her, and girls choose people without pics of guys with their arm round a girl. It's normal.
You are very good looking... you have a wonderful smile, you've chosen a good style for yourself. That you are struggling just goes to show how stupidly picky can be on dating sites.
The pictures are okay, maybe more of you doing stuff, and less with other people in them. I note you have a drink in your hand in most of them, which is something not all online daters approve of (like I said, people are stupid and picky).
I wouldn't worry that much, you've been blessed with good looks, any girl with her head on straight would be happy to date a guy like you.
I like all the pictures, except the one with the girls, of course. When looking for a relationship, women don't want to see other girls hanging around you. I would swipe left, as I personally don't like that pic of you with these girls, and because that can of beer. I don't like men who drink. Other than that, you look fine, and I would be attracted.
Your cute if I was single and online is try to talk to you but I think you so have the sweet innocent face and most online girls our age are looking for trouble makers or the bad boys and you have that serious long term relationship look going on which is a good thing there are girls out there looking for that
As an 18yr old, I'd swipe right on you because 1) you are older than me 2) you are good looking 3) you look younger than you actually are 4) part of me might thing that what you said isn't your real age... So I think on tinder older women think that you're probably cat fishing them since you younger than what you say.
I would probably swipe right with you, but don't expect me to start a conversation because 1) I might not think we have enough in common and 2) there are guys who message me that I'm interested in so I don't really need to reach out.
Never post a photo of yourself standing next to attractive girls. It sends the wrong message. I immediately swipe left on guys with pics like that. Doesn't matter if you're related or just friends. It screams "I'm a player!!"
if you are having good luck with girls in person then focus on that. honestly that is in my opinion a better way to meet someone anyway
im not sure why someone would swipe left on you but clearly they aren't "swiping left" in real life so who cares lol
You do look very young... I think it's your neck. In person you probably have a presence that commands and interest that just doesn't tranlate in a photo? I don't know. If it's not too hard to meet people IRL then why are you trying to internet date, if you don't mind me asking?
Online dating is (much) harder for guys than offline dating. This is because the whole thing is more about looks, guys outnumber girls and guys will spam girls, so even a mediocre girl (looks and personality/achievement wise) thinks she can get a brain surgeon who is a Ryan Gosling look-alike.
OK, first, *Never* use a picture on a dating website of yourself with your arms around two women! It is not relevant if they may be your sisters or whatever, it will come across "player-ish". Also, half of your 6 pictures show you with booze. If you're a partier and want a partier, fine, but be aware of the way it comes across. Many who use dating websites do so because they don't like the bar/party pickup scene. Just my opinion, and it's worth what you paid me for it.
