3. The thirst trap fantasy pic
Once you’ve shown your potential mates how approachable you are, your next move is to hit them with a little sex appeal. Listen carefully: You’re allowed exactly one shirtless or near-shirtless photo per dating app profile. More than that and women will misread you as vain, overly DTF, or just plain cheesy. The antidote to all of the above is a beach photo with a button-down shirt worn open (or half-open, if your six-pack is a work in progress). Your inspiration should be Armie Hammer in Call Me By Your Name.
What to wear: Go for a pair of swim trunks in a solid primary color and add a simple brass cuff bracelet. Ideally, this is a vacation pic; one she can easily imagine herself joining you in. A bare chest and legs are all the sex appeal you need here, so hold off on the blue steel—better to smile.Back to top
