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.
But why would this make people think twice about swiping right? If you’re happily coupled up, you’ve probably helped your single girlfriends swipe through the reams of desirable – and not so desirable – potential dates.
Somehow, penis photography is even less appealing in Blendr's "just friends" trappings. Even for the modern woman who knows she wants a casual hookup, declaring this on a public profile will result in such an avalanche of attention, potential social stigma, and legitimate safety concerns that it negates the ease of using such an app.
Alas, to quote my friend: “What’s gay-efficient is hetero-creepy.” Clearly Blendr isn't the hetero hookup app I've been waiting for. For a straight-Grindr to work, it also needs to position itself as clearly about casual sex. Can we please stop pretending that only men are interested in no-strings hookups? To make women comfortable, you need to put the control in their hands.
You can also include your education and occupation in your bio.
Tinder then finds you potential matches near your location (you can narrow it down by age and distance, too) and if they take your fancy, you swipe right to ‘like’ them. If they’ve also ‘liked’ you – then bingo, it’s a match and you can start messaging. You need a Facebook profile to be able to use the app. Thanks to an update, we have Tinder Online which you can now use on any device – including your laptop or, dare we say it, work computer.

For this reason, there is a standard refrain I hear when I express the need for a hetero Grindr: It won’t work because women won’t use it.
But even if you believe that ladies can have their choice of partners, knowledge and access are not the same thing.
