Guys, Here Are 7 Things To NOT To Do On Tinder

So many guys get it wrong when trying to get the girl.

Guys, Here Are 7 Things To NOT To Do On Tinder
Raw Pixel


So, I have a lot of single friends and they all make me laugh when they talk about being on this “dating” app, Tinder. They say things like, “why would you even put that picture on there?” and “well, shit guys, I just got a dick pic in this message!” I thought it over for a bit and I wondered, what should a guy have to do to get the girl on Tinder? Better question, what should a guy not do to get the girl.

This is a list a few girlfriends of mine and myself have come up with, it explains what a guy shouldn’t do on Tinder, the "rules" you could say, on how to have a perfect profile. This is definitely an app where, if you’re yourself, you won’t get any right swipes.

1. Why would you put a blurry first picture?

What is the deal guys? One of the first things it says when you log on is “pick your best picture!” when you make your profile. Is that your best?? Left swipe.

2. Bio: “I’m here for a good time, not a long time!” *beer clinking emojis*

Oh cool, so what I know about you is you drink a lot. Your first picture is you with a dead hog and blood on your face, you have a Hurley hat on with your tongue out in the second picture and your third is you constipated in the bathroom. Oh, he’s flexing? Wow. Left swipe.

3. You should only be allowed max 3 out of 6 pictures with filters.

Only because you look cute on your profile but when you snap me with no filter talking bout, “wyd boo” like boi bye. Do you have cat ears on, fake glasses on, a dog tongue, and a black & white shirtless picture? Left swipe.

4. Put your height on your profile.

OK, here is one you SHOULD do. Girls hate asking, it’s a little awkward. Just make it easy for us and put your height in your bio. Don’t be ashamed or anything, just know you’ll get a left swipe if you’re 5’10” and under. Xoxo. -all girls

5. If her profile bio reads: no Hookups.

You DO NOT ask for a hookup. She obviously is looking for something more serious. There are a lot of girls on Tinder, go get you one that wants hookups. Respect that girl enough to not send a random dick pic when you want some attention. Left swipe.

6. Don’t put pretty girls in your pictures.

You know girls are insecure as shit. If they see that pretty girl on your profile they’re gonna left swipe, because they feel like they’re not good enough and think they won’t make it with someone like you. Left swipe.

7. When you get that match, don’t spam message them.

If they didn’t super like you, back off. She obviously thinks you’re cute but doesn’t want your life story in the next 6 messages. Calm down, what if she doesn’t even what that with you? Like just chill, feel the situation out. If she doesn’t respond a little fast, she’s not seriously interested. *unmatched*

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
