How to Change Profile Picture on Tinder

What Happens When You Swipe Left on Tinder

Tinder is a dating platform that allows you to choose who you find hot or not in your area in the hopes that they’ll think your hot as well and you can both match. If you swipe right on someone, this means that you’re interested in them matching you. If you swipe left on someone, this means that you don’t want them to match with you. You can set a radius within where you watch to find people in so if you’re not willing to travel far, you won’t have to.

On your profile, you can display things such as your picture, interests, name, Instagram photos, gender, the music you like, and age that will help the person know more about you. When creating your Tinder profile, you’re first prompted to add pictures of yourself because this is what people will be making their initial judgments on.

Tinder also prompts you to connect to your Instagram because they want other people to see a true representation of what you look like. Tinder also encourages its users to add multiple pictures to help their Tinder score because having very few pictures isn’t good for other people viewing you. If you don’t feel like your tinder pictures are up to scratch, Tinder makes it easy to change them.
