How to RESET Your Tinder Account!
1: Start With A Headshot
There’s a reason why hopeful actors and models hand out pictures showing the upper third of their body – i.e. “headshots.” That’s one of the most attractive photo formats. So roll with that as your primary Tinder picture.
For maximum impact, you want your headshot to have these attributes:
#1: A lot of contrast between you and the background. The last thing you want to do on Tinder, or any other dating app, is fade into the surroundings. Command the frame!
#2: It’s visually simple. No anime-inspired filters, no crazy effects – it’s just you. As an ’s complexity goes up, the perceived attraction level goes down. You want to be easy on the eyes, literally.
#3: You’re not hiding your eyes. Anything that obstructs eye contact, be it long hair or a pair of Maui Jim’s, is not doing you a favor. In fact, it’s making you come off as less trustworthy and less likeable – and that’s bad news on Tinder.
2: Skip The Selfies
Or at least keep them to a minimum in your lineup.
Not only do people want there to be fewer selfies cluttering up social media in general, but studies have shown selfie takers are rated more narcissistic and less attractive & likeable than the same person shown in a normal, non-selfie photo.
Science aside, it’s just plain hard to get the lighting and angles right unless you’ve had a lot of practice. Most selfies on Tinder look awkward and ill-lit, in other words – not flattering.
And here’s one universal selfie don’t – if the setting is your bathroom, or any bathroom for that matter, it has no place in your Tinder lineup. Not hot.
