Why You Might Be Doing It Wrong With Dating Apps


Published at 1:37pm 1st August 2016.

Wondering why you might not be having any luck on dating apps? You are about to find out… maybe.

User ‘Donar23’ took to Reddit and asked: “Singles who use dating sites: What information about a person makes you leave/ignore their profile immediately?”

Nearly three thousand comments came pouring in with people more than happy to share their experiences.

User ‘DDfnord’ said: “Any show of anger or flippant disregard.

“You have 400 characters to summarise yourself and attract people, maybe don’t have a tantrum.”

‘Askewzero’ puts it bluntly with: “Any profile that starts off with them ranting about what they don’t want, or telling you all of the things they hate.”

Another wanted nothing to do with this individual looking for love: “Read a profile that said: This won’t work out. You’ve been warned."

User ‘Ciaradx’ wants to see who she's dating: “Bad photos. Like it’s all group photos where I can’t pick you out easily or poor quality ones where I can’t really tell what you look like.”

‘Brontosaurusus86’ said: “Baby pictures of themselves. Why would I care what you looked like as a baby? I don’t even know you.”

Sometimes the littlest of things can be a turn off, with this individual it is: “Excessive use of emojis.”

Another is instantly disappointed when alcohol is involved: “When the majority of their pictures show them with alcohol…”

Another said: “Women who take photos of themselves in nightclub toilets. Nope.”

‘Sebasbb’ said: “The Snapchat dog filter.”

And finally, ‘Lemmetellusumthin’ puts it simply with: “Duck face.”
