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.1

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.1
