DON'TS FOR GIRLS ON TINDER
August 31, 2013 at 2:07pm
I don't know how many of you have checked out the Tinder app, but after checking it out myself (and being stuck at home, sick and bored), I thought I'd help the ladies of the Tinderverse out with a few pointers:
Don't put Greek letters in your heading or have every one of your photos be of you and your 'sisters'. It's pathetic enough you had to pay for your friends in college, but it's time to enter the really real world.
Don't have all your photos with a pack of other girls so we have to use the process of elimination to figure out which one is you. Too much work. X!
Don't have only one photo of yourself unless it's a full body shot and you're a super model. (You're not, so have multiple pics.)
Don't have all (or any) of your photos be selfies from above your head. It screams 'I'm fat and trying to disguise it!'. We know what you're doing.
Don't have only head shots. It makes it look like you have something to hide, and you probably do.
Don't make all your photos professional portfolio shots. You're not auditioning for a commercial.
Don't put those ridiculous Hannah Montana/Taylor Swift curls in your hair. You're not in high school or one of the Housewives of New Jersey (same mentality). Time to grow up and get a big girl hair style.
Don't make all of your photos of yourself half naked. We're going to assume you have a web cam site you want us to subscribe to.
Don't make your main photo or more than one of your photos be of your pet(s). The terms 'creepy cat lady' and 'crazy dog lady' exist for a reason.
Don't, for the love of god, (you should know better by now) make duck face in your photos. It IS NOT sexy. You look like a high school idiot.
Don't put some sappy platitude in your heading. You don't seem deep or profound. You just seem dumb. It's Tinder, for god's sake.
Don't have all your photos be of you in 'da club'. Hopefully you have a little more going for yourself other than being a professional party girl.
Lastly, don't make all your photos selfies in your bedroom/bathroom. It makes you seem like a lonely, lonely lady with no friends who doesn't get out much.
