I am a long time Tinder user and you could say I've been online dating for quite a lot. This myTake is not about someone's physical appearance! These are just some examples I collected throughout my Tinder dating experience. Maybe some will relate and agree, and maybe some might learn a thing or two about Tinder dating from it. Well, here it is:
1. Men with only one photo
I don't care how hot you look like, how amazing the background is or how that one photo clearly shows your full face/body appearance - you will be left--swiped, sorry. The only thing that that one photo tells me is that you are too lazy to take this serious. And with it, other suspicious thoughts arise; is it a fake profile? Is it his one & only decent photo? How old the photo is? etc, etc, etc. I just don't have time nor energy figuring this out. Next!
2. Men with sunglasses on every photo
You clearly do not want to show your face. It's probably because you think it's ugly and hiding it will do a trick. Nope, it doesn't, sorry. Or maybe you think that you look super-badass with them. Well, maybe, but I want to see your freaking eyes! Eyes dude! Or maybe you didn't think about any of it and you just randomly, without even noticing, accidentally put only those photos. Which brings me back to being too lazy or stupid to take this seriously. Or maybe you're blind and don't want to reveal that very important fact. Whatever, next!
3. Multiple men in every photo
Ummm, so which one is you? The hell, dude!? Next!
4. Selfies with another woman
So is she your girlfriend? A wife? A friend? Your non reciprocated love that friend-zoned you? Your sister? Must be a cousin! Probably just showing off because the photo looks better with her on it, like maybe you want to show that women enjoy your company, that you are oh-so wanted and I should definitely pick you? In your dreams. Next!
5. Men with photos that show awesome activities but 0 appearance
Like you made few nice shots doing flip-ups on your snowboarding trip, all wrapped up in your snowboarding uniform that literally shows 0 skin. Nice suite, pal. Next!
6. Men with no photos of themselves
Awww, what a wonderful sunset! Next.
7. Men with sexually provocative photos or bio
Okay, you want to fuck only and you made that very clear by putting some sexual google image or your own dick or your six-pack abs POV while laying on the bed. I respect your honesty, but no thanks. Next!
8. Men with same posture and same face expression on every photo
Are you even a human? Next!
9. Men in gym
I might be one of the rare girls who dislikes this, but there is something really off-putting about that. It pretty much gives me the impression that you are a narcissist. Like, is the fact that you go to gym the only quality about yourself that you have to show? Cool, a gym, wow, so interesting. I-don't-care. Next!
10. Men with no bio, or no distance, or no occupation shown
This brings me back to not taking it seriously. I want to know stuff about you, at least a bare minimum. If you leave everything blank I will think you are either fake or a serial killer or really shallow and stupid to tell something about yourself. And you are probably unemployed or thousand miles away. No matter how good looking I find you, if you don't put any info about yourself I won't be interested. I need more then physical appearance, sorry. Bye, boi!
Well, these are just some of the examples. There are probably more, some minor ones, but I think the ones I put here are definitely my top 10.
