Bad Tinder Profile Pictures

Welcome back for a third round of Rating Your Dating This week we have Alex, an engineer who is, as he put it in his email, not unattractive.” And yet, Alex doesn’t seem to get many matches at all. I’m pretty sure I figured out why right away, but here, take a look and see if you can spot the red flag:
Game Show Music If you guessed the terrifically creepy selfie, you’re correct! You’ve won… a slightly more informed understanding of the way Tinder profiles are perceived by others.
This is not to say anything of Alex’s looks. To be clear, I’m not here to grade your appearance; this isn’t a beauty pageant. Still, I definitely agree that Alex is not unattractive”! This would be a terrifically creepy pic of any face, regardless of total handsomeness. The unsmiling, tired eyes may as well belong to someone standing over the sleeping body of someone they are about to murder. It is certainly not prof pic material, and should be deleted (from Tinder and in general).
Overall Photo Rating: Delete that creepy selfie immediately. 0 / 10
The (Rest Of The) Photos
The One With A Recreational Touch Football Team: 6/10
In terms of to be able to figure out what that person looks like, this is not doing much, but it’s good for the reason that it provides some information on you. You’re active! You prefer being outside! You’ve got a kind-looking band of pals! Maybe move it toward the finish of the lineup, which means you don’t get a What does he seem to be even?” rejection. Otherwise, that’s good.
NORMALLY THE ONE Atop A Mountain: 6/10
That certain is serving the same function to the softball one. (You’re active! etc.) Between your two of the, the outdoorsy athleticism has been hammered home.
NORMALLY THE ONE Where You’re RUNNING A Marathon Or Something: 9/10
Alex, I like this really! You look so sweet and happy, and, wow, look how active you’re! This will be most of your profile picture ! Stop perusing this and switch it to your profile picture as of this right time!!!
THE MAIN ONE BEFORE An Urban Body Of Water: 6/10
I don’t know a lot about you using this, but I do get hold of a better sense of all you appear to be. If our other two options are softball mountain and team hike, this range of photos produces a well-rounded package of: here’s my face + here’s stuff I enjoy do.
NORMALLY THE ONE In A Surgical Mask: 2/10
Thank the nice Lord up in INTERNET DATING Heaven that you at the minimum knew not to understand this to your next picture following Creepy Selfie. All of them combined may have basically been a confession of your respective status as a serial killer. I’m serious, though, I really do not get why that’s in here. I cannot see that person at all, and you also were thought by me were an engineer? If we’re not likely to reference it in the bio, i quickly think it usually is deleted (alongside that Creepy Selfie, that i hate).
The Bio
Rating: 4 / 10
This bio isn’t bad, since it is nothing. It’s so bare bones, it generates me feel just like you’d to cover per word or something. I really believe that’s an OK choice once you swap out your photos, but can work with a conversational in towards the end still. Something such as Maybe, Message me if you need X” or, I’ve no basic idea, some fun fact about yourself that may help have the details going? Considering that individuals are – fingers crossed! – actually likely to be considering your complete profile, let’s have them swiping in the proper direction.
In Conclusion
80% of one’s profile’s impact boils down to your pictures, and 80% of this 80% can be your profile picture. I’m of low quality at math, however the point is it is really a HUGE DEAL. Personally i think like portion of the problem is that whenever creating our very own profiles we forget how exactly we view other’s profiles. When Alex’s profile arises now all that potential matches see is that expressionless, potentially threatening face, where he visited school, and the truth that he is 26 yrs . old. There’s not enough reason to even have a full look before swiping.
Remember, the whole Tinder process starts with snap decisions made based on that first picture. From there, it’s a series of follow-up decisions which either seal or break the deal, but none of those finer details matter until after you land the click.
