A thread on Reddit started by TheCoolWizardOrNot asks: “Anyone who had success with tinder in Singapore”?
He got the following reply from the_rumblebee. “A lot of guys think that landing matches on Tinder boils down to yandao-ness. This is a common misconception. While yes, Tinder is the most superficial dating app because we are judging each other based on pictures, girls are not looking so much for shuai guys as they are for zai guys.
A lot of girls told me they actually hate guys who use selfies and mirror pics. Shirtless? Instant swipe left.
What girls swipe right for is your perceived lifestyle. Picture of you petting a dog? Awesome, he’s a caring person who loves animals. Swipe right.
Picture of you in a suit drinking wine in a social setting? Awesome, he’s sociable and a dapper gentleman who probably has a real and successful job.
Swipe right. Picture of you skydiving or scuba diving? ..these actually don’t do too well because your face tends to be covered. But if you can show a sporty lifestyle, that tends to do quite well too.
tl;dr: don’t think about showing what you look like: think about showing the kind of lifestyle that girls find attractive. Slap a funny profile message in there and watch the likes roll in.”
But user Ilosa warns: “Be careful with the suit pictures. Sometimes it’s painfully obvious that you only wear a suit once a year to take Tinder photos.”
