Tinder: 10 tips for better profile pictures

OK, I know what you are going to say. You are going to say – OMG are you on Tinder? (If you have been living under a rock – Tinder is a hugely popular online dating app.) Well let me put this a little in perspective – I recently spoke with some people about Tinder. Not that we are seriously looking for dates (or maybe some of us are) but the popularity of this app is intriguing me so I had to check it out. Just a little warning – if you want your self-confidence diminished in no time – Tinder is for you.

Tinder is highly focusing on what you look like (no luck there then) – and you can either swipe people to the left (meaning: you might be a lovely guy but nah – let’s not meet) or to the right (oh you look alright – shall we have tea?). In this fast-moving world we live in now this is the way to judge or getting judged. So if you are into Tinder there is no need to emphasize the importance of a proper profile picture.

After some Tinder experimenting – checking profile pictures have been entertaining to say the least but mostly for the wrong reasons. So people of the Tinderverse – let me share a few tips regarding profile pictures with you.

Toni Erdmann – German cinema at its best

Toni Erdmann

If a 162 minute long German film doesn’t instantly wet your appetite, I get you. It didn’t really got me hooked at first either. But Toni Erdmann is definitely worth a watch. This quirky German gem of a comedy/drama will make you laugh and think about what is important in life. This is always a good combination in a film if you ask me, so I highly recommend you to see this film if you are brave enough to try something different (which you should do as often as you can by default anyway…). I am quite sure you won’t regret it!

Plot: Without a warning a father comes to visit his daughter abroad. He believes that she lost her humor and therefore surprises her with a rampage of successful and less successful jokes…

Toni Erdmann was nominated for an Oscar and won numerous Awards.
