Selecting profile pictures for Tinder (or Bumble, Ok Cupid, etc.) can be hard, whether you have too few or too many to choose from.If the former sounds like a familiar problem, consider this guide on how to easily take good dating profile pictures at home.Just make sure we already know which one you are, meaning don’t make it your main picture and leave it at one or two group shots total.Nobody likes to play “Where’s Waldo” while looking at a dating profile.Most likely, your phone’s main camera’s image quality is a lot higher than its front cam’s, so it’s understandable to use a mirror to easily make sure you’re in the shot.
You really don’t want people to go “Aw, they’re cute, but I’d much rather talk to their friend.” Do you already have an Instagram account? If not, starting one just for Tinder or Ok Cupid and force-feeding it staged pictures is probably not the best idea.
By the time people are looking at your last image, they have most likely forgotten that spectacular first picture that made them open your profile.
This is especially true if all the photos in-between did not offer a clear view of you.
Did you get their permission to put their face on a public dating profile?
We can’t tell, and in most cases, a photo like that can only harm our perception of you. Similarly to the above, we can’t really tell if that’s your child, nephew/niece, or a friend’s child, and specifying as much in your profile text just isn’t enough.
