Don’t Have Your Friends In The Picture
Group photos are very popular on Tinder. It’s great that you love your bros, but how is she going to know which one you are? Women don’t have the time to scour a group shot trying to figure out which face is yours. Aside being an obvious “bros before hos” indicator, a group shot also increases your chances of being overshadowed by your crew — especially your more attractive friends. Women are just as visual as men, and if we see something better standing right next to you we want that. I’ve seen an actual profile photo that included Mad Men actor Jon Hamm. What deluded sap would want to pose next to People’s Sexiest Man Alive? Jon: Swipe right. That other guy? Left.
Head on over to the link above to check out the other Dos and Donts that are out there. And then start to try to get a few more dates on Tinder.
