10. Do have more than one photo.

Considering that Tinder is primarily based on visuals, it only makes sense that you'd have more than one photo. A single photo makes it seem like you took one really good picture and that's the only thing you have going, whereas a few photos will give us a better idea of what you actually look like (not accounting for angles, lighting, and Photoshop). Also, if you only have one photo, it looks like your account is fake.

9. Do have at least one photo that's not a selfie.

It's cool to have some selfies for your photos, but make sure that you include at least one that isn't. For one thing, it's generally pretty tough to see someone as a whole in a selfie (unless that person has ridiculously long arms), and for another, there's no saying how you might've manipulated yourself in that photo. A single photo taken by someone else can give a better perspective of your appearance, and it says that you're not just sitting at home all the time taking selfies.

8. Don't only have group photos.

You know what's a major red flag on Tinder? People who exclusively have photos of groups of people. We get it, you and your girlfriends take photos together every time you get dressed up, but we're not really looking to play "guess which one I'm looking at" on every photo. It's fine to include a group photo or two, but if they're all group shots then we're just going to assume you're always the ugly one in the group.
