Using A Group Photo As Your Tinder Profile Pic Is Lethal

It’s time for another round of Rating Your Dating , which week we having a significant new lesson: Group photos shouldn’t be profile photos.
Having an organization photo as your profile photo is lethal. You obtain totally buried regardless of how attractive you are. Even if Jon Hamm had a group photo as his Tinder profile photo, he would get a bunch of swipes left. The number of work that goes into sorting through and figuring out which one you are is not worth it, at best. At worst, it seems like you’re deliberately trying to obscure what you look like. And who has time for that?
This week we have Cillian’s profile for review. There are a couple things we can fix, but the biggest problem is that it takes more than 30 seconds to obtain a handle on what he looks like. That’s several centuries in the Tinder universe
The Photos:
Overall Photo Rating: 2 / 10
Group Photo #1: Group photo profile photos a problem almost without exception, but what even is this? I can’t tell what you look like. I can’t tell what anyone in this photo looks like, really. The quality is shot. I actually don’t think this is even worth including in the lineup at all, never mind as your very first photo.
Group Photo #2: Honestly, the only way you could do more damage to your chances than leading with a group photo is following up that group photo with another group photo. Even deliberately taking a second to flip back and forth between the two, it took me a minute to figure out which of the guys you are. And guess what? People are probably not going to bother!
The one where you’re in the car: Is this a joke, Cillian? Are you even a real person? You are covered in a shadow, a car window, and some guy’s reflection. Actually that counts as a second guy in this picture, so it may as well be ANOTHER GROUP PHOTO. If someone even took the time to get this far, well, this can be the one where they quit. I’m not even totally sure why I am even rating the other photos. (But, OK, fine, I’ll, so we can figure out what else you must work with.)
The selfie with two guys passed out on the couch: Cillian. Are you the guy taking the selfie? Among the guy on the couch? I’m assuming the selfie-taker, but no matter who you are in this photo, I cannot even begin to imagine why it might be included on your profile. People are drunk or lazy, and living in what looks like squalor, even though it may simply be a poorly positioned bag of Tostitos making things look worse than they are.
The one where you’re wearing a beanie: Finally! OK, now I kind of – kind of – know what you look like. Sunglasses and a beanie are identity-obscuring things that a fugitive might wear as a quick disguise. And that would be the case even without the lack of color. Except, I guess, since we have literally nothing else to work with, this should be your profile picture.
Group Photo #3: This can be the least worst group photo of the bunch, because, wow, at least I can get an ID quickly (that’s, assuming you aren’t the dad-age man wedged in the trunk). It looks like this is your loved ones, and that is pretty cute. Still, not cute enough to redeem the full total insufficient Cillian-identifying content in this lineup.
Overall, I’d say you need at the very least two new photos early in the lineup. At this time, the beanie may be the candidate for the profile pic, but let’s try for something better. I’d suggest a selfie, nevertheless, you may possibly also just ask among your group photo friends to take the the pic for you personally!
The Bio
Bio Score: 4 / 10
I feel such as this lightly hints at who you’re, but mostly it comes off as a jumbled mess.
Some loose thoughts:
You prefer Always Sunny? Cool! Me too! Maybe don’t reference a sociopathic acronym for discarding and emotionally destroying ladies in your dating profile, though.
Wait, why are you utilizing the D.E.N.N.I.S. system since 2015? Are you currently only recently sexually active? Never mind, just remove it, Cillian!
You’re into sports / Arsenal. OK, that is fine. Maybe write it out as a sentence, rather than such as a bot who had to cover per word? Maybe at the very least properly space things out, therefore the whole thing is less confusing? Has been a lover linked to being truly a tea lover for some reason I’m not getting?
Please spell tea” correctly. It’s three letters. Editor’s note: I believe this might be some type of joke that plays better on the far side of the pond.
Now, winner of several dance-offs” is pretty fun! Let’s delete everything in your Tinder bio besides that, and rework in loving sports / Arsenal and tea. That you can do the quick phrases, like, Sports Fan Emoji Tea-lover Emoji. That structure leaves something to be desired, nonetheless it works so long as you obtain the structure right.
In Conclusion
Group photos will be the plague. They often don’t do a lot of anything later in the lineup (unless maybe revealing an activity or hobby or whatever), but as a Tinder profile photo they’re actual death. Just about the complete point of Tinder is people swiping through and making snap decisions predicated on what you appear to be. Making it impossible to allow them to do that helps it be impossible to get matches. DO NOT CREATE A GROUP PHOTO YOUR PROFILE PHOTO.
Cillian’s profile really highlights the problem with this particular, because he’s struggling for aesthetic clarity overall. Still, it will be an issue even though every other one of is own photos was successful. You want to ensure it is as simple as possible for someone considering your profile to see you in the perfect light. Lastly, I’d note something about also not following up a short group photo with another group photo, but we’re not likely to do group profile photos at all anymore, therefore i don’t need to!
