Tinder seems to have stood the test of time. People are still using it while supplementing their hookups with the likes of Bumble, Hinge, and, hopefully, real life interactions with living, breathing humans. When it comes to apps like these, the first impression you put out is obviously key to winning the hearts, and opening the legs, of members of the opposite sex. Having a fire pic is going to increase your chances of getting a right swipe.
What makes a good profile pic? How about a picture of you holding that fish you caught over spring break while doing a little deep sea fishing. Fish Brain dove into the data, and then surveyed some sorority girls in Florida to find out if girls find these type of photos attractive.
From Fish Brain:
Over 1000 members of the Alpha Epsilon Phi (AEPhi) sorority answered our survey that we conducted during November and December 2015. Their answers revealed that:
46% of young American women (in their late teens and early to mid-twenties) find Tinder photos of men holding a fish more attractive than those of men without!
So the short answer is that the majority tends to like those without the fish, but it’s not much of a difference for you to be rocking a sailfish in your profile. If you are going to shoot for the minority of the data and put a picture of yourself holding a fish, below are the most popular types of fish selected.
Great Northern Tilefish: 21%
African Pompano: 16%
Red Grouper: 12%
King Mackerel: 9%
Amber Jack: 8%
American Red Snapper: 8%
Hog Fish: 5%
Juvenile Common Carp: <1%
No one likes a carp. Cast your net out wide, gentleman, and catch a shit ton of fish..
