Additional Tinder Profile Comments and Tips So You Can Avoid Getting No Matches on Tinder

This next section covers the same top 10 points as above, however the comments here are more in-depth.

10. Girls hate your Tinder bio taglines

Examples: Oversharing, spelling mistakes, weird quotes, cliches and overused quotes

Note: You can find good Tinder bio examples here.

Susan: Some are too long and some are too awkward to read.

Susan: Now, sorry for being so picky, but you spelled ‘challenge’ wrong. I would correct that. To some people, they wouldn’t even notice and others don’t care. However, I think of myself as a smart, witty woman. And, you come across as mysterious, interesting and probably really smart with a quick wit. In my humble opinion, when I see the misspelling, I think you might be careless or uneducated. I know I am passing judgment quickly. But, all I have is a quick profile review, right?

Shawna: I think you need to simplify your description and take care not to come off too cheesey.

Cara: We also don’t want to hear about your near death experience upfront. That’s over-sharing for a first date, let alone an introduction. Keep it short and sweet.

Jasmine: By not providing a description you may be working against yourself in the fact that you’re leaving more room for the girls to judge.

Jasmine: Saying that you “love sports” is pretty vague. Do you love watching them? Do you love playing them? Specify which, and also maybe two of your favorite sports and girls will be able to feel more as if they have something in common with you. Having something in common is a great conversation starter once you match with someone.

Jasmine: Here are some questions for you to answer in your description which girls might be wondering: What do you do when you’re not working? What are your hobbies? Are you more of a café or a bar kind of guy? What qualities and characteristics would your ideal girlfriend have?

Tea: “Allergic to penicillin. “ – No. I’m also allergic to penicillin and I don’t say that to people I just met…. Leave all allergies and diseases for 10 date. Maybe not even then.

Susan: What does ‘allergic to penicillin’ have to do with anything? Is this important for me to know?

Megan:  I would definitely delete that you’re allergic to penicillin, as it’s just not necessary information right now, especially when you’re trying to impress a potential date.

Andrea: My only other suggestion would be to maybe mention what you do. A girl is more likely to want to meet a guy who she knows has a job. It’s not really necessary, but can be a definite point for you if it’s a decent job. Maybe say something like “when I’m not working I like to…etc etc”.

Lorna: I think it’s vitally important that you have a description – most women won’t consider a man that doesn’t know how to sum himself up, and doesn’t know what he’s looking for. It also shows a lack of confidence – you’ve got to be comfortable with who you are and what you’re looking for in a lady!

Tea: When I’m going through your profile, reading all of those quotes is just too much work for me!

Lorna: The lack of description can come off as if you just are looking for sex partners.

10. Girls hate your crappy-quality photos

Examples: Blurry profile photos, poorly-cropped photos and poor quality photos.

Tea: You need to change your profile picture, I don’t like cropped photos, it’s like you are saying: this is the only picture I have, that I like, and I really have to put it on the internet.

Jasmine: Get rid of the photos which are blurry or hide your face. You should try to showcase yourself and how great you are, not look like you’re trying to hide something!

Andrea: I don’t like the amount of cropping in these. They also seem very…busy.

Tea: First, I’m concerned about the quality of the pictures. They are really blurry. This is a major reason why you’re getting no matches on Tinder.

Jasmine: A lot of your photos make you seem as if you’re trying to hide from the camera. That makes you seem real insecure and get you an immediate swipe left. Show yourself off and show you’re confident! Girls love that.

Cara: Picture 1 looks like you cropped out an ex-girlfriend in it. We don’t want to see that!

8. Girls hate that you have no variety in your photos

Examples: Similar environment, similar activities, similar expressions, similar photo types.

Note: To find out what my all time most successful Tinder profile picture is, the photo that gets a huge amount of positive comments, and why the photo makes it so easy to get a date – Check out the TINSANITY Tinder guide here (Hint: it’s a photo you could easily replicate tonight!).

Jasmine: Repetition between photos can make your profile tedious and boring to go through, meaning that girls will be more likely to swipe left while they’re looking at you.

Andrea: Seeing 5 photos of you in the same clothes, doing the same thing or at the same place, tells us that you don’t have a life.

Jeannie: I want to chat with men who look like they have a variety of interests they enjoy on a regular basis. Variety makes you interesting and will have me wanting to know more about you.

7. Girls hate that you have selfies

Jasmine: I don’t care for the bathroom selfies. They’re good pics of you, but I think you should grab a friend to take a couple pics of you instead of mirror selfies. Mirror selfies are tacky.

Tea: I really dislike photos taken in mirror, and with selfie stick.

Lorna: The photo in scrubs is good as it reveals your profession – although some women may not find a selfie-style shot appealing. Maybe you could get a friend/colleague to take a similar picture at your work so that it reveals your job without turning off women that aren’t into guys that take selfies (some women see this as girly or vain… two qualities I’m sure you don’t want to portray!)

Cara: I love that you don’t take selfies in the mirror! That is one of my biggest pet peeves/turn offs!

Tea: I don’t like pictures taken in a mirror. For me that’s a woman thing, and even then it’s not justified. I think your mobile should have option for a timed photo.

6. Girls hate that you have too many group photos

Examples: Having a main profile photo that is a group shot or too many group photos overall.

Susan: Keep in mind that we have never met and you are introducing yourself. When I look at your main photo, I see two men and a woman. Which man are you? I have no idea. Then, I go to the next couple of photos and you are in more groups with guys so I have to try and figure out again which one is you. You are making me work too hard to figure it out!

Megan: My first thought was, “Wait, which one is he?”

Jeannie: Picture 3 just had me checking out your friends, when I should just be checking out you, right?

Megan: There are too many people in the photo and it is too busy for the small Tinder photo box on a cell phone interface.

Andrea: I’ll be honest; I didn’t really like most of your pics because they’re too busy with all the people in them… it’s too distracting.

Andrea: Leave out big group pics, they can be confusing and are unnecessary.

5. Girls hate that you don’t show your face clearly

Lorna: My main concern is the sunglasses. Most women want to see a mans eyes – if the eyes are a window to the soul then you are stopping women from seeing what you’re really like when you wear dark sunglasses in your main profile photo. It can create a shady first impression – like you have something to hide.

Megan: When I’m looking at your main picture, I’d love to see a close up of you and your face with no sunglasses – I want to know right off the bat what you look like.

Jasmine: A lot of your photos make you seem as if you’re trying to hide from the camera. That makes you seem real insecure and get you an immediate swipe left. Show yourself off and show you’re confident! Girls love that.

Megan: I’m not a big fan of sunglasses in profile pictures because although you may look good in them, I want to see your face!  Girls like to have the whole picture and not wonder.

4. Girls hate that you don’t smile

Susan: Most of the photos show either a blank look or a slight smile with the eyes. I think it’s important to look authentic.

Susan: You seem so serious. Are you serious all the time or do you hate cameras? I am saying this somewhat light heartedly, but please go back and notice that almost every photo has a slight grin or no emotion at all. It catches my attention in a somewhat negative way.

Susan: If you think these photos really capture your personality then that is great. But, it makes me wonder what you are like in person. I am thinking you are a bit serious. If you are not as serious as you appear to be, then please take one more shot or find one of you smiling or laughing.

Cara: You don’t know how many men refuse to smile and I don’t know why!

Angela: You don’t seem to be smiling in a lot of them. I wish you had a couple more of you smiling.

Shawna: – Crop photo 6 to just below the snap chat text bar to conceal the fact that it is a snap chat photo.

3. Girls hate your debauchery and obscenity

Examples include: excessive alcohol, excessive partying and excessive obscenity in your profile pictures and profile bio.

Andrea: You come across a little douchy: shirt off, beer in hand and flipping off the camera. If it’s in your FB profile that’s different, but I wouldn’t include it in a dating site profile.

Tea: NO. Don’t have a photo of you flipping the bird. It’s sending the wrong message.

Cara: Your pics are too “partyish.”  It is fine to show that you like to be social and have a drink once in a while, but we ladies like to see a man who stays in control!

Cara: I just would 100% NOT use the picture of you giving the finger to the camera to attract a future life partner. Show them your wild side in person. No need to broadcast that.

Jeannie: While I was looking at your pictures, I thought, you seemed like a guy I would want to meet, until, I saw the picture of you flipping someone off (picture #11).  While this may be funny and light hearted between you and the photographer, it comes off as a bit childish and was a turn off for me, plus you look mean in that picture.

Andrea:  Don’t put so many pics of you with alcohol on your profile – it makes you seem like an alcoholic.

Cara: I think it looks like you enjoy a beer so your description is a little bit confusing when you say “not into that whole bar scene.”

Cara: I can see that you enjoy going out and being social. You look like the life-of-the-party. This could be a good thing if you are looking to match with another party girl, however, if you are looking for someone a little more serious I would consider editing those photos. All in all though, you look like someone who I would like to hang out with one weekend. I just don’t know how serious I would take a relationship with you.

Jasmine:  I don’t like the amount of alcohol that dominates your profile pics.

Cara: I don’t like the picture of you smoking a cigarette…I personally find smoking a turn off and I wouldn’t want to broadcast a bad habit while making a first impression.

2. Girls hate that you have shirtless-selfies (especially in the bathroom)

Susan: Every woman wants to date a guy who takes care of himself physically. So, to have a photo of you hanging out by the pool without a shirt or doing something on a beach without a shirt is normal and attractive. But, when it’s a selfie without a shirt, then it looks a little different or if you have more than one.

Andrea: You come across a little douchy: shirt off, beer in hand and flipping off the camera. If it’s in your FB profile that’s different, but I wouldn’t include it in a dating site profile

Cara: I am not a fan of selfies – especially the mirror selfie where you show us your abs. We can see that you are athletic, but we like a little more modesty.

Cara: Snorkling is fun and makes me want to do that on a date. It’s also a subtle way to show off those washboard abs without being obnoxious about it. (Trust me I’ve seen that plenty and it is a huge turn off) It’s always nicer for a guy to be more subtle with their good looks, in my opinion

Jeannie: Personally, men who post shirtless pictures turn me off. It comes across as desperate for attention. Same thing as when women post bikini pictures. It’s not necessary and an element of mystery is much more appealing than revealing too much in the beginning.

Susan: There are two photos I don’t like to see in a main photo and that is one with a woman and one with no clothes.

Andrea: I don’t like the main pic. I hate it when guys show off their stomachs like that and it’s ten times worse when the shirt isn’t even completely off and it’s a mirror selfie. I can’t even see your face.

Cara: I can see from your body that you are athletic, but I would say that or put in a photo of you playing tennis.

Jeannie: Multiple shirtless pictures can comes across as a bit desperate for attention.

1. Girls hate your intimate photos with other girls

This was a surprise to me.

I knew that girls didn’t particularly enjoy seeing photos of potential dates with other guys, but I definitely didn’t expected it to make #1 on the list – especially because creating social proof in your Tinder profile is something that does improve your profile, and is something that we recommend.

Andrea: Take out the pic of you with another woman in it! Gah! Don’t put a pic of yourself with another woman on a dating site! Even if it’s your sister – potential dates won’t know that!

Cara: Remove the photos of you with what looks like ex-girlfriends. Even if they are not your girlfriends (current or ex) we don’t know you so we don’t know your relationships with these women. We don’t want to see competition like that right up front! As a potential person you could be in a relationship with, I don’t want to see you surrounded by 3 girls – even if I can’t see their faces.

Susan: There are two photos I don’t like to see in a main photo and that is one with a woman and one with no clothes. Let me explain. When you show a photo of you with a woman, then I start asking myself if this is an ex girlfriend or ex wife or what. It makes me feel uncomfortable when seeing this. If you were interested in me, would you want to see a photo of me with a guy? It might be your sister or best friend too which is fine. But, I don’t know who it is so it makes me feel uncomfortable.

Susan: I don’t like that you have a pic of yourself holding another woman on a dating site. Potential dates don’t want to see you holding another woman. I think the photo of you is fun and funny, but holding a chick in any of your profile pics is a major no no.

Shawna: I have found that women sometimes dislike photos of men with one other woman, so I would consider only including one of these and cropping the other to become a photo of just you.

Cara: I am also wary of the photo with the female. You two look awfully comfortable and it may look as though you have an ex that will be hard to compete with. I’d remove it.

Andrea: Women looking to possibly date you don’t want to see pics on your profile of you with other woman.

Susan: I keep wondering who the gorgeous girl is? She might be a good friend or past girlfriend. While I want to know that you attract gorgeous women, I don’t necessarily want to see you with a beautiful woman while I’m checking you out. In photo #3, the woman looks like a friend so it doesn’t bother me.

Cara: Picture 1 looks like you cropped out an ex-girlfriend in it. We don’t want to see that!

Susan: I think you should remove the photos of you surrounded by other females. Us ladies don’t want to see other women hanging all over you when we’re thinking of you as a potential match.

Conclusion

It’s clear there are specific traits of a Tinder profile that the majority of girls hate to see.

We know from this experiment that profile pics definitely affect your Tinder success, and that this is the #1 technique to improve your Tinder profile, so it’s absolutely essential that you get an understanding of what girls think when they’re looking at your profile.

At the very least you need to be aware of and avoid the 10 largest profile mistakes. Do this and you will give your profile the best chance of scoring some quality Tinder matches.
