Tinder tips for men

Jessie Riley of Austin sees a lot of “Tinder” profile photos and says these are definite turnoffs:

Dead animals or fish in a profile photo » “Why are you holding a dead, beautiful animal?” she asks.

A photo with a puppy » “If it’s your first picture, my immediate thought is, ‘What are you hiding?’”

Photos from a friend’s wedding » That’s especially true if it’s the only photo where you’re not wearing cargo shorts and a baseball cap.

A photo with a much more attractive friend » “The profile always belongs to the less-attractive guy,” Riley says, “It does not add value! If you’re just mildly attractive, post your mildly attractive photo.”

Mirror selfies » “You lose all facial expression,” Riley says. Also, it sends the message that you have no friends, or at least none willing to take a picture of you.
