Avoid These 20 Blunders If You Want More Right Swipes from Men

Knowing what to put in your dating app profile can be hard. A recent online survey asked, “Men, what’s something you see on a woman’s profile that instantly turns you off?” Here are the top 20 answers.

Saying ‘I don’t contact first’ on Bumble

“Haha, what? Do they not understand how Bumble works?”

“You wouldn’t believe how common that is.”

When you only have group pictures

“When it’s 2-3 of the same people in every single picture, and I have no idea who she is. That level of obliviousness is so unattractive.”

“If it’s a picture of three people, then she’s the third choice. There’s no way anyone would put a picture of someone else on their profile unless they were happy to be confused with them.”

When filters are obvious on all your photos

“I recently re-downloaded Tinder after a long hiatus from dating, like pre-filter hiatus…what on earth is going on? Everyone looks like an anime character that a 5th grader made.”

Writing ‘Entertain me’

“‘Entertain me’ or ‘Don’t be boring.’ Typically these people are the dullest and most entitled people I’ve ever interacted with.”

“They usually have the ‘swipe left if you can’t hold a conversation line in their profile. Then they’ll proceed to give one-word responses consistently.”

‘If you can’t handle me at my worst, you won’t deserve me at my best’

“As if it’s your responsibility to be their emotional and physical punching bag just because they aren’t mature enough to regulate their own emotions.”

“It’s a bad quote for a dating site. It screams selfish and high maintenance.”

‘Fluent in sarcasm’

“And by sarcasm, they mean they’re mean, but in a passive-aggressive way.”

“That was my experience with one person in particular. Her whole personality was that she’s just mean, but she marketed it as being ‘funny.’ No thanks.”

Specifying that you hate drama

“If you have to specifically state that you hate drama, you LOVE drama.”

“In my experience, the ones who hate it are constantly surrounded by it because they started it.”

‘Don’t talk to me unless…’

Terrible at Communication

“The only valid reason is a homosexual/any other queer person says they prefer only specific sex/gender.”

Being asked to message on Instagram

“That’s literally a scam profile.”

“I’ve seen actual profiles on Tinder doing this, then when I checked their Instagram, they’ve got thousands of followers, and they just want to increase their followers…”

‘My kid comes first’

“The fact people have to say that just irritates me.”

“Usually a sign that their kid does not, in fact, come first for them, sadly.”

Pretending you’re too cool for dating apps

“Anyone who pretends they are too ‘cool’ for dating sites. ‘My friends dared me,’ ‘I’ll probably delete this in 24 hours.’ You are just like the rest of us, Diane. Get over yourself.”

“Justifying why you’re on Tinder: ‘Only on here because my friends made me do this.’”

‘If you’re not 6 ft tall, don’t swipe’

“I am that tall, and I still swipe left. I’m not interested in someone who judges people that superficially.”

“I meet all height requirements. But any height requirement is an automatic swipe left for me. You know they’re gonna be drama, and I got no time for that.”

‘Make me laugh’

“Usually said by people with the personality of a wet napkin.”

“Strong ‘entertain me, peasants!’ vibes from these.”

Listing things you hate about people

“The problem is that they’re shooting themselves in the foot because a lot of the people they are screening out are the ones who don’t opt into negativity, and they retain the ones who ignore the list.”

Not providing any information

“Instead of saying something about her, it just says ‘ask me.’ Absolutely no. Next.”

“‘I’m an open book’ and then proceeds to say nothing else.”

‘Don’t swipe if you make less than $…’

If She Doesn’t Reply, She Might Still Be Interested

“One profile I saw a while back, the woman stated that she wouldn’t consider any man who makes less than 100K. There are more subtle ways to convey that: ‘I want someone ambitious, driven, and successful in his career.’ The way she phrased it made her look like a gold digger, especially since she wasn’t making anything close to that amount.”

“Because she absolutely is a gold-digger.”

‘I’m not looking for a boy, I’m looking for a man’

“This roughly translates to “Please pay for all of my bills as soon as possible because I don’t want to keep working like I am now.”

“And I need a lift to church on Sundays…”

That your husband/partner is currently on deployment

“When they note their husband/partner is currently on deployment or off on military obligations and ‘looking for some fun’ in the meantime.”

“I guess it depends if ‘we’re letting each other see other people’ is honest and true or not. A profile for one person is only one side of the story.”

Bad spelling and grammar

“You don’t have to be a literary scholar or anything. Just a basic handle on your first language would suffice.”

“The devices used to create the accounts straight up notify you when a word is misspelled too…”

‘I’m brutally honest’

“Yeah, that’s why nobody stays with you for long. You lack tact and kindness.”

“It’s not the honesty they love… it’s the brutality.”
