Getting tinder matches in Frankfurt can be tricky. The city is huge which naturally means that there is a lot of competition. Generally, it is difficult to get tinder matches in big cities as there is a more diverse selection. The attractive profiles usually have no problem becoming matches, while the others are typically ignored. There is, however, a secret to be in the more desired side of the spectrum of the app and that is your tinder photo.
1. First impressions will decide how often you match
Though we are constantly told not to judge a book by it’s cover, it is hard not to do so whenever using a dating app. Swiping right or left is usually done in seconds and if your tinder profile photo does not impress at first glance, you will likely be swiped left. Your tinder photo needs to stand out enough to be seen, but not look too unnatural. Think of this like skimming through Netflix and deciding which show to watch next. A series with a good-looking thumbnail will impress you differently than one with lower quality and poor design.
2. People swipe quickly so they will make their decision based on the photo
As stated above, the app is fast paced. Tinder is basically selecting someone based on their profile picture. Of course, the conversations you have going on is what that creates the chemistry, but you need to have a match first.
3. Personality in your photos is what creates a connection
Out of all the other profiles you want yours to stand out, be authentic and show your personality. Obviously, you would more likely approach a friendly looking person than someone with a stoic expression on the street. This applies to your profile as well. An authentic picture will establish a connection to your match before writing them. If you’re unsure of what an authentic picture should look like, you can take a look at our Blog article with tips for do’s & don’t in dating profiles.
4. Looking attractive is super important
We all know that not everyone is equally blessed with good looks. Unfortunately, there is a bigger chance that someone swipes right if they find you attractive than basing their decisions on your personality. Tinder limits what extent you can showcase your personality down to a small bio text. To get to know your personality, you will have to match first. Good news is that beauty is subjective and different for everyone. However, there are basics to enhance your features, which brings us to the last and most important fact.
5. The right lighting and angles do matter, trust me
Your profile picture is like a business card. People do a double-take if the card is professional-looking. Naturally, we find pictures with better quality much more appealing. It doesn’t matter if you’re the most attractive person around the block, if your picture is taken in a dark room, it won’t do you any favors. Even if you did find good lighting, it would still be lacking if the angles weren’t flattering you. A professional taken photo can do wonders for your profile. With the right angles and lighting, your best assets can be highlighted effortlessly in a tinder photo. A photographer with a keen eye can bring out the best of you in one photo for your profile.
