1. The seasonal classic
Like a good mixtape, order here is extremely important—especially when it comes to the first image that appears on your profile. My advice: Set your first photo to the current season. If it’s January, you’ll want your first photo to show you in a wintery setting wearing winter clothes. This helps the women looking at your profile imagine what you’ll look like on your first date, and helps ground you in reality. If possible, your first photo should also show you outdoors. This proves that you are rugged and active (aka healthy, aka not addicted to video games).
What to wear: Go for casual activewear that fits well, introduces a pop of color, and excludes sweatpants. Stretchy chinos are a great alternative to jeans and allow space for a base layer underneath. (I could write a 15,000-word essay about the allure of the Blundstone boot, but I’ll just say that they are sexy and conveniently practical, and why don’t you already own a pair?)Back to top
