Tinder Tips for Guys

  1. Post pictures that resemble what you look like in real life. We’re going to find out eventually, so what’s the point of faking it?
  2. Leave the dead animal hunting prize pictures for your friends – they’re not attractive.
  3. If someone asks you a question, ask a question about them, too – this is a conversation, not an interview.
  4. Don’t call us “baby, “honey,” or any other pet name until we’ve made it clear we’re ok with it.
  5. I don’t want to see pictures of your private areas or your chest unless we’re in the bedroom, ok?
  6. If you’re just looking for someone to talk to online, either tell us first or go on Facebook messenger, please.
  7. Don’t lie about where you live because Tinder will always tell us how many miles away you are.
  8. Don’t be secretly married.
  9. Don’t expect us to cross state or country borders for a first date.
  10. Show your face in at least one of the pictures – it looks like you’re hiding something when you don’t.
  11. And please don’t just post pictures of your dog or give us your dog’s name in place of your own – they’re cute but we’re not going on a date with them.
  12. Don’t answer “lol” to every question.
  13. Don’t talk about your ex. If I have to explain why, you shouldn’t be on Tinder.
  14. Be real. Don’t ask me where I’d travel to if I could go anywhere in the world unless you’re really dying to know.
  15. Have a conversation with us and get to know us a little bit before you ask us out on a date.
  16. Don’t tell me about your sexual fantasies – they’re creepy, not cute.
  17. Download a photo app so your pictures look decent. If they’re too blurry or abstract, I’m swiping left.
  18. Don’t friend me on Facebook before or after a first date. That’s a big turn-off, and besides, we’re not even friends yet.
  19. Be polite – that should be a no-brainer.
  20. Don’t always take us out to dinner on the first date – get creative.
  21. Don’t post pictures of you with your ex-girlfriend or current girlfriend unless you know we’re looking for a threesome.
  22. Offer to pay on the first date. Bring cash, please. Or take us somewhere like a park.
  23. Don’t pick us up on the first date – we don’t know you yet. Go public before you get private.
  24. Use your real first name.
  25. Don’t look at your phone constantly during the date – put it away and pay attention. Common sense, folks.
