I haven’t, but I don’t harshly judge people that have because I understand why they would.
But what is going to make a potential hook-up banish you into the abyss of the left swipe?
According to a new study by Tinder, wearing glasses in your profile photos will reduce your chances of a right swipe. Instead of having specs appeal, wearing glasses could reduce the chances of finding ‘true love’ by 12 per cent, which is a pretty substantial percentage for something we had never really considered before.
Most of us keep our profile up on whatever app/site we're on until you and you-know-who discuss being exclusive. Maybe we've been told to play hard-to-get and think that staying just out of reach and maintaining that element of mystery is a good thing. So what's the harm in just taking your profile down?
It sends a message (without saying a word) that you're interested and serious.
I appreciate rules when they outline and help promote basic human decency, sure, but hate them when they prevent me from doing something I really want to do, especially if that thing involves eating cake. Sometimes it's about forcing myself to follow a rule (like not having sex just yet, even though your hormones might be telling you it's time), and sometimes it's about breaking a rule (like not appearing "clingy" by saying you miss him—the eff do I care about that?!
If I miss someone, I'm going to tell him, and if he misses me, he's going to like it).We're all so stuck on the tit-for-tat behavior, I think we're unknowingly sabotaging relationships sometimes.Plus, who wants to see if someone you just left a date with is already logged in again 15 minutes later?This works to encourage more immediate matches and conversations, so that people don’t get bored swiping with no response for hours on end. If you swipe right on everyone, Tinder is likely to see you as a spamming robot, and will be reluctant to show you to other profiles.But if you swipe They’ll then show you to fewer profiles as they don’t want you to disappoint everyone with their lack of matches.Did you confront/question your partner about their recent activity on the site or remain silent?
