Picture dating profile
Although 80 percent of Hinge users' shots were posed, the data reveals that candid photos are 15 percent more likely to receive a like.
Even though photos of ladies baring their chompers do better on Hinge, for men, the opposite is true.
Bonus: now you and your friends have an even better excuse to snap a million hot Instas when you go out together.
Hinge found that showing your smile in photos makes them 23 percent more likely to be liked, so stop hiding your pearly whites (especially if your parents shelled out tons of cash for orthodontia).
Here's something that sounds obvious: Make sure people can see your face clearly in your main profile picture. At best, "hey" is uninteresting; at worst, it's rage-inducing. Granted, you can scour the internet for cheeky opening questions like whether (it does and I will fight you) or send along a GIF of a waving panda. Keep in mind that when it comes to online dating, it's easy to feel like you're on some kind of nightmarish, overcrowded merry-go-round.
Odds are you don't spend every weekend in a tux or evening gown.
No need to be afraid of cheesin' — pictures of women smiling with their teeth on full display were 76 percent more likely to get liked by other users.
