Whether you're a casual user, or you use Grinder/Tinder 24/7, there's a good chance you've seen people using all these types of profile pics on numerous dating apps...
The pinnacle of dating app profile pics. Usually shirtless, maybe after a solid haircut, the mirror selfie shows off just the right amount of goods.
Also known as The Torso, The Headless Horseman appeals to discreet peeps with banging bodies. Is it too much to ask for a Face pic, though?
For the really discreet peeps. This option is equal parts picturesque and equal parts red flag.
We all have that friend who over-edits their photos, and chances are that friend is also on dating apps. Put down the smoothing tool, people!

Are you the girl on the bottom left of the cheerleading pyramid or second from the right? Oh, you’re the coach in the background? Got it. *rolls eyes*
Business professional. Usually in a suit, and usually looking smart as hell.
This is when a lot of people look their best, but depending on the execution, a post-workout/post-shower profile pic could definitely come off a little conceited.
Cute puppies make all profile pics FIRE, but just make sure you’re in the photo as well.
Speaking of animals...
Retire it, people. PLEASE!
There’s nothing more confusing than a potential boyfriend/girlfriend whose occupation states "teacher" on their dating profile, but their profile pic screams "provocative model."
We need to see the real you, not the Valencia, Sepia-tinted, light-leaked, X-Pro II version of you.
