Tinder is a great app for scanning through and meeting singles in your area. It offers limited space to put your best self forward, but that’s part of the charm. Despite it’s simple format, many men post profiles shots that not only destroy their chances of finding a mate, but also send the lady swipers of Tinder into a dark spiral of fear and celibacy.
1. The Playgirl Audition
We live in a world where women get all of the cool sexy poses. Whether it’s gyrating under a waterfall or rolling around half naked on a sandy beach, women have taken a claim on the sassiest and most sensual of poses. While I appreciate social revolts, the fact remains that 99% of men cannot successfully mimic a sexy pose. While you may feel like a man-vixen rubbing yourself under that waterfall, the reaction it elicits in women is one of fear and unrelenting despair.
2. The Glamour Shot
If your profile picture required a non-ironic use of a backdrop, concealer, and velour of any kind, you’ve probably crossed over into a glamour shot. Sure, glamour shots were all the rage with rotund aunts in the 90’s, but when it comes to finding a date nowadays it’s not going to help you out, no matter how fabulous you look.
