Ultimate Tinder Profile Guide



Welcome ultimate tinder profile guide. This post is going to cover how to set up your profile for not only getting more matches but getting more dates through tinder. I'll also break down each pic individually and why I chose them. This will not cover tinder game but if anyone is interested I can make a follow up post about it. It will also not cover the editing process but I use lightroom and photoshop (learn that shit).


Tinder has changed over the years. Originally an easy hookup app ,where all you had to do was be attractive to get laid, has turned into another validation tool for women and a source of continued disappointment for men. The older tinder guides on TRP are all about quality of pics and looking like a badass, which simply does not work for most guys.

Play Your Strengths

When you look at the pics I have linked you'll notice one thing. I'm not a 6'5 jacked football player or a rich stud driving a Lamborghini. I'm naturally goofy and it took me so long to realize that I should own that and play off it. I'll explain more when I break down each photo but on thing is constant in these photos, I smile. Every picture except one (the last) I am smiling. Girls constantly comment on how happy I look and I have been told more times than I can count that I have the most genuine smile they have ever seen. I have a crooked smile and I can't look good with a smile without my teeth showing. I just look weird. I know this so I play off it as a strength.

I find the right angles, take the photos multiple times, and genuinely am happy when taking the photos. Even though most are modeled I am constantly joking with my photographer to keep in a good mood.

Show Your Interests

Each of these photos reveals something about me. Whether its my physique, my sense of humor, or sports that I am into they all convey one thing. "THIS GUY IS INTERESTING!" That is all women want in a guy they are going to meet up with from tinder. They are tired of boring guys taking them to dinners only to talk about boring shit for an hour and a half and have wasted another night of their lives. Don't be that guy.

Quality Photos

One point bigger than the content of your photos is their quality. You could have the best content in them in the world but if they are blurry and out of focus no one is going to care. For my photos they are either taken by friends on nice cell phone camera's and edited later (by me) or are taken by my photographer friend. We are both into photography so we'll will shoot photos of each other for practice from time to time. We both know we are using them for our dating profiles and have slowly learned how to get the best shots for them. If you don't have a photographer friend then get a cheap camera for 400-500 dollars and a tripod. Learn to take photos and edit yourself. This is a skill that will take you much further than tinder so don't think that you are shelling out $500 just to get laid.

Tell a Story

Your profile should tell a story about you. It doesn't make sense now but it will in the photo explanation. In a sense your pictures should give off a bit of your personality and have a nice flow from beginning to end.

Breakdown of My Photos

I don't know if Imgur will put them in order but I'll point out which one I'm talking about.

Photo 1

"Me with a Purse". Most guys wouldn't dare put a pic like this on their tinder. That is why I did it. It was a goofy shot we took during a photoshoot and it turned out looking amazing (my photographer is female for those wondering why we had a purse). I decided to make this my first image as it is the most eye catching one on my profile. I directly played off this photo for my bio and it worked like a charm. "6'0. It's not a purse, it's a satchel." Key things to note is my physique looks good, buttons undone to still give me that fun sexy look, and sleeves rolled up to show off the arms (women go crazy for rolled sleeves). I'm also well groomed in all these photos. Hair is looks good, fresh shower, may have some stubble but it makes me look a little older and more masculine.

Photo 2

"Me with trophies and my bike". This picture is simple but tells so much. First things first it shows I'm a fucking winner and I don't settle for second. It shows that I have something I'm passionate about that I am really good at. It also show's I'm athletic and do a sport that is pretty crazy in it's own part. Also I'm smiling like crazy in this photo because I was honestly stoked that I took home 3 wins that weekend which shows true passion.

Photo 3

"Headshot". This one is simple. The goal of this photo is to have a picture that just shows my face and upper body. It's important to have at least one like this for a couple reasons. The first is that it gives them an idea of what you really look like. I'm smiling in this one so it still shows that I'm a fun guy and like to have a good time. It also serves as a break in the profile. I have a lot of wild photos so there needs to be something to bring me back down to earth and seem human. I've tried 100% modeled shots before and it doesn't work. You have to look like a real human being.

Photo 4

"Stoplight". This photo was taken on another photoshoot with my photographer when we found this crosswalk post that looked climbable. I actually just climbed up there for the fun of it and she got some good photos of me. This photo shows that I'm adventurous and willing to do crazy things for fun. I'm also smiling in this photo.

Photo 5

"Snowboard". This photo was taken on a ski trip with some friends. I didn't have my dslr so it was taken on a shitty phone camera which shows in the quality of the photo. I still managed to make it look alright but the only reason I keep it is to show that I have more adventurous crazy sports I'm into. Plus girls love to get drunk and go ski. Not as much as me but they still love it.

Photo 6

"Picking my nose". This photo is just stupid and that's why I keep it. After so much crazy stuff on my profile you get to the last photo where I'm looking off into the sunset for a photo that could be very scenic but I'm ruining it with a pinky barely in my nostril. It really shows personality in a few ways. I clearly don't give a fuck or this wouldn't be on my profile. I also am confident enough to ruin a perfect moment for the sake of a laugh. Last but not least my hat also says "Papi" so it still gives a funny sexy vibe to it. This pic is old and I weighed about 20lbs less but it's funny and gives the profile a nice ending (just like a movie or book). This photo is edited a bit to give it that silly vibe too. The sky did not look like that and the yellow outline was added around me.

Notes from Me

A few things to note from this whole post. These pics don't look like I was trying hard. Even the funny one's I just look natural and like I'm having a good time. This is the key for the tinder that we now know. Yes I still get flaked on from time to time, yes I still get ignored by a lot of girls I message, and yes not every interaction leads in a date. There is nothing you can do about this so don't ever con yourself into believing you can. The only thing you can do is to lessen the chances of this. My daily matches have gone way up, my ELO score has risen through the roof (just look it up if you don't know what it is), my reply rate has gone way up, and the amount of dates and lay's I get is insane compared to where I was when I first started on tinder.


Do not just try to copy my profile and think it will work. The point of this was to show that you need to play off your strengths for the photos. Post the real you (just not the boring nerdy shit) and women will be attracted to you. Have quality photos and really take the time to tell a story with your profile. Feel free to leave comments or PM me if you have any questions.

Pretty sure this is the 40th ultimate tinder guide I’ve seen on here lol

There’s a new one every month so which one is the most ultimate?

[-] DigitalDragonSlayer 3 Points 3 months ago

Perspective is helpful, I learn at least one new thing to tweak my online profiles when I read a new guide.

Bit over saturated? Yes. Still good content though.

Good job OP. Showing photos with others for social proof is a much have though.

[-] superyute 2 Points 3 months ago

it's not, unless its super obvious you're the head/leader of said group.

[-] [deleted] 3 months ago
[-] HumptyDumptyFellHard 29 Points 3 months ago

Not much to learn from this. You don’t need fancy photographer shots. Too many of those and you look like you are putting way to much effort into something that should only be worth a couple swipe while taking a dump. Simple ones out with friends will do. To sum this “ultimate” guide, don’t be ugly, have decent photos.

[-] Vikingcel 15 Points 3 months ago

It's funny how every other attractive lad thinks he got in on some super fancy tinder success secrets just cause he doesn't use shitty jizz-stained mirror selfies.

[-] Thisismybot8 4 Points 3 months ago

Seriously it's pretty simple. I've had success on tinder but never wrote a guide. Just be at least a 7 with two good pics and be within a 40 mile radius of several college campuses. The end.

[-] warlordchad 8 Points 3 months ago

We’re all making females worse humans through these platforms. The sheer abundance any woman has via these apps is frightening. Want to know why women are flakier, shittier, squirrellier, and more entitled and arrogant than ever? Because: Tinder, Insta, FB, Bumble, etc.

[-] [deleted] 3 months ago
[-] Thisismybot8 1 Point 3 months ago

I agree completely but it is what it is. We're not going to change the world, we just want to get what we want out of it.

[-] iguy22 22 Points 3 months ago

The funny thing is....a 200lb Stacy with no job, 2 kids, and no hobbies can literally spend 5 minutes taking MySpace angle selfies and have 40x the success of any guy who spent hours pick and even hiring professional photographers. Lulz

[-] DochreanSepp 13 Points 3 months ago

The problem is that most man are so fucking thirsty its disgusting. Imagine a world where a 4-6 is not good enough for the average man.

Women would actually need skills/personality to reproduce.

[-] iguy22 3 Points 3 months ago

Oh god I wish that day would come.

[-] Gooraba 3 Points 3 months ago

Be the change you want to see. Every time TRP says "just bag a fatty bro, everyone starts somewhere" you're perpetuating the cycle. Know your worth.

[-] empatheticapathetic 7 Points 3 months ago

Unless you’re going to change gender it’s pretty irrelevant

[-] OhUncleT-Bag 6 Points 3 months ago

40x the success

I set up a fat girl's (solid pig tier -1) Tinder for her, 45 minutes she had 99+ likes on the Gold counter with 3 horrible photos and no bio.

Guys have no shame, they'll swipe right on a literal pig but then they open with shit like "hello, how are you?" but because she's a fat ugly pig, she responds and what do you know, her perceived value shoots up to that of Emily Ratajkowski which in turn hands her an entitlement problem, she thinks she's entitled to Brad who works in Finance, lives in a multimillion pound house in Chelsea and drives a Lambo.

Men are their own worst enemies, I've had great success and I put in the effort (bio & photos on point), highly selective with my swipes (yields less but higher quality) but when I see what other guys do, it makes sense why I can get multiple dates a week and many lays as even 10% effort yields a result that those idiots can only dream of.

[-] dexter9002 1 Point 3 months ago

Men are their own worst enemies

Our dicks are our own worst enemies.

It's all supply and demand. There's equal supply of males/females. But the demand for females is much much higher.

[-] set-theorist 3 Points 3 months ago

Not on Tinder. The ratio is about 66% men and 34% women. Obviously it's true that most men are thirsty and pussy is on super high demand but the ratio just makes the problem particularly worse in Tinder.

[-] askmrcia 1 Point 3 months ago

Men are their own worst enemies

See a lot of red pillers don't want to believe that there are guys out there that have no shame. I have friends and relatives that will have no problem fucking a 4 or a fatty because they are horny. Like they do not care. A lot of guys have no standards.

I'm starting to believe that I should feel I achieved something for never fucking a fatty.

My cousin is the absolute worse. The guy was a D1 football player at a big ten school and he would fuck anything that allowed him. He had a decent girl every now and then, but he fucked some women that I honestly wouldn't get erected no matter how hard they tried. This is how guys avoid months of a dry spell.

We can call out women all we want but, but nothing will change because of how thirsty some guys are.

[-] superyute 1 Point 3 months ago

I will never understand what's so attractive about Emily Ratajkowski

[-] Vikingcel 14 Points 3 months ago



No selfies. Look like you got shit to do besides jacking off and bragging about your three day nofap streak on reddit. Don't be ugly. Don't be a midget.

[-] Canadeaan 10 Points 3 months ago

Its easier to find a date in the library or the supermarket than it is on that app.

[-] [deleted] 3 months ago
[-] TheShearerComplex 3 Points 3 months ago

Needs more photos of you with friends. Possibly one of you with a group and there’s a girl or a dog, to be classed as ultimate.

[-] DadOnDabs 1 Point 3 months ago

Almost out a note in there about it but yeah I agree. If I was to change one thing it would be that.

[-] U-94 2 Points 3 months ago

I keep my front pic seasonal. Got my ugly sweater "Up to Snow Good" one rocking now.

[-] warlordchad 2 Points 3 months ago

Here’s the thing though: generally I agree with you. But in this case it’s in the interests of the group AND the individual.

For example, if you meet a girl on Tinder, and I game her IRL, who’s got the advantage? 9 times out of 10 I do. Because she can feel my presence and confidence. So by running game I have an advantage over any guy on Tinder—any guy can do this.

So on an individual level, it’s an advantage.

TRP is all about strategy, right?

OK, so here’s the thing: the more of us who do this, the better, because we increase our value. Right now, male attention is cheap AF. As long as we keep it up, women are going to be ridiculous.

So as a faction/group, it’s an advantage.

Guys: this is why women get so mad when guys talk about game. They know they have an advantage, and they don’t like the idea that we might turn the tables. Let fucking do it.

[-] fartlord69 1 Point 3 months ago

Should I be smiling in my photos? What kind of facial expressions should I have? Hard smile? Soft smile?

[-] DadOnDabs 1 Point 3 months ago

Depends on the photo. I have my first photo as a soft smile and the rest with big open mouth teeth smiles.

[-] fartlord69 1 Point 3 months ago

I usually have a grin when I smile for pictures and everyone of my friends says it looks beta

[-] DadOnDabs 1 Point 3 months ago

Pm me and I'll show you what mine looks like in these photos
