- A new study by Dating.com found shirtless pictures make it harder for
mento get matches on dating apps.
- While 90% of men feel like a shirtless selfie could help them get more dates, men who use them actually get 25% less matches.
- This might be because more than half of the women surveyed thought shirtless pictures are a sign of immaturity.
- Queer men were four times more likely to use a shirtless picture than straight men.
For men on dating apps, a shirtless pictures may seem like a good idea to get matches. In fact, according to a new survey by Dating.com, 90% of men think so.
But the study found they have the opposite effect: men who use a topless photo in their profile actually get 25% fewer matches.The study had two parts: first, interviews with 2,000 random users across the company's dating apps; second, comparing their responses with the app's own data.
The same mentality doesn't seem to apply to photos on women's profiles. According to the survey, women who had bikini pictures in their profiles were 40% more likely to get matches than those without.However, it's unclear if the dislike for shirtless pictures applies to LGBTQ men.
While women surveyed on average were put off by shirtless pictures of men, the survey didn't state how men looking for other men on dating apps felt about them.Queer men were four times more likely to use a shirtless picture in their dating profile. Read More:
