15 Things To Have On Your Tinder Profile If You Want Me To IMMEDIATELY Swipe Left

After being in quarantine for two months, I started to go crazy.

So crazy, in fact, that I downloaded Tinder again. I told myself last year I was done with the stupid app, but look at where I am now. I left Tinder last year because nothing ever worked. Either our plans didn't align or we ghosted each other.

As I scrolled through the many men, I realized I almost never swiped right. I started to pay attention to why I kept swiping left, and I actually found some patterns in the profiles I saw.

If you want people to swipe right on you, do not do these 15 things... Please.

1. The first picture is of their dog. 

I get it, your dog is cute. However, I didn't come to Tinder to see pictures of your dog. If your first picture is of your dog, you're probably using it just to get matches. Not from me though!

2. They have their ex’s face blurred out and their profile says, "this could be you."

This. This is so annoying. Something about this just screams "desperate" and "douche".

3. They are in a group picture. 

I am not going to spend my time deciphering who you are. Just give me a clear picture of you.

4. The profile is of a fictional character. 

If your profile is impersonating Barry the Bee or Barney, you probably have no sense of humor, no life, and no friends. Sorry. It's not funny or cute.

5. There is no description or age listed. 

This is just very sketchy and I don't like taking any chances, especially on an online dating site. I need at least some information about the person.

6. There is only one picture on their profile. 

This is also very sketchy. This always leads me to believe that it is a fake profile.

7. They have pictures of them smoking, vaping, or drinking. 

I swear to God, if your bio says "420 friendly" with emojis of broccoli and smoke, I am swiping left. People think that smoking weed and making questionable decisions is cute and impressive. No. It's not.

8. Their profile says “here for a good time not a long time”. 

I am not here to mess around. And if I see a bio that says that they're here for a good time, I know that they are probably hoes just looking for their next prey. I don't want to be just another one of their numbers.

9. I know the person. 

Awkward! I don't care how cute you are. I am not going to match with you on Tinder and then see you in person to be questioned about my profile. Nope. Sorry.

10. There are kids in the pictures. 

I just don't see the point in this. I see so many profiles with kids in them and then the bio says "niece not daughter". Just leave them out of it. It is also very dangerous and irresponsible to post pictures on a dating app of young children.

11. Their name is the same as one of my family members. 

Also awkward. I don't want to be in a relationship or making out with somebody while thinking of my brother or dad. That would just ruin the mood if you ask me.

12. It’s a couple looking for a third person. 

NOPE. I ain't about that. Maybe someone else is into three-way relationships.

13. They have nude pictures.

This is such a turn off! Whenever I come across a profile and the first thing I see is a dick or abs, first I throw up, then I swipe left. It isn't attractive to give out unsolicited pictures to every girl on Tinder. It is disgusting.

14. Their bio says something like “swipe right if you want your heart broken”.

Well, guess I am swiping left then. Like who would ever put that in their bio? To be funny or sarcastic? I don't understand.

15. Their first picture doesn’t have their face. 

Sketchy. Not about it. Not showing your face will not help build trust.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

5 Things You Need To Know Before You Watch 'Arrested Development' On Netflix

"Her?" Yes, she's an amazing show! (You'll get this joke after you watch the show).

Netflix

"Arrested Development" is an award-winning sitcom that aired for three seasons on Fox beginning in 2003, and then was picked up by Netflix for a fourth season in 2013, and then again for a final season in 2018.

However, it seems to remain one of the world's most underrated and under-appreciated shows of all time. Although this article alone won't be enough to skyrocket the show to Netflix's top 10, I hope that it will open people's eyes to the value and quality of the show.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

Celebrities Stealing Designs From Small Fashion Labels Is NOT A Good Look, And They Need To Pay Up

When larger, more established figures or brands steal from lesser-known independent creators, they are taking opportunities away from these creators while also profiting from someone else's work and claiming it as their own.

Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B recently collaborated on their new single "WAP," with the music video also being released on Friday. Both Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B posted photos of themselves on Instagram to celebrate the premiere of "WAP." An independent designer quickly noticed that the rappers' matching tops were copies of a top she had designed last year.

7 Books That Are NOT In The Young Adult Genre That Will Change Your Life

Young Adult isn't the only genre that exists, so here are seven books that any book lover wanting to try something new will love.

One of the most popular genres in literature that everyone has read at least one book from is Young Adult fiction. Now, I personally can say that, in the past, I have been one of those people that only read from the YA section of the bookstore.
While there is absolutely nothing wrong with just reading one genre, it's good sometimes to venture out of your reading comfort zone into the other book genres of the literary world.

In a previous article, I discussed the importance and power of words. The perfect example of this is literature and its impact on the world. Books have always played a crucial part in human lives, from how we are able to expand our knowledge to how we pass our time.
