10 Things Guys Need To STOP Doing On Tinder Right Now

Have you heard of Tinder, the dating app that's taking over millennials' iPhones? Most singles between the ages of 18-45 have probably glanced at the matchmaking app that uses Facebook profiles to suggest potential mates (as a bonus, it also indicates common friends and interests).

But really, success hinges on a snap judgment of one profile photo. There is no room for detailed bios or personal history. Simply swiping a photo to the left means you're not interested, and swiping to the right means you are. If, and ONLY if the feeling is mutual, you can then communicate over chat on the app.

Our parents told us not to judge a book by its cover, but in the world of Tinder, this is exactly what we end up doing -- which is why choosing a good profile picture can mean the difference between loneliness and love.

Sorry, guys, but you're up first. We're tired of seeing the same deal breakers over and over again, so here are ten things that the men of Tinder really need to stop doing. Trust us, we're the ones swiping.

  • 1 Stop staring into the abyss. We can’t see your face.
