Many profiles do not show their face because they’re anxious for any number of reasons. This is understandable. But it’s important to realize that it will definitely hinder your ability to garner matches. Men especially have pretty stiff competition. (Based on observations I’ve made via my male friends on Feeld, men don’t have the same kind of deluge of matches women often experience.)
Many people opt to make the face pic visible upon matching, and some put in their profile “face pics upon matching,” which means that they’ll send you a face pic once you match. I often feel like I don’t really want to go through the effort to match with faceless profiles because if they end up not being attractive to me, I have to un-match-which always feels shitty. That said, a few of the people I’ve enjoyed meeting the most were faceless profiles, but they had something in their profile that made me click on them.
My best advice: If you choose to not put a face or body picture on your profile, make sure to have something in your profile that will make someone curious enough to match with you.
Upload photos that give people a sense of what your body looks like, too.
While you aren’t allowed to show explicit photos in your profile pictures , it’s very helpful to have photos that depict your body profile or something sexy that you wouldn’t put on a Bumble profile. I used a photo where I was wearing lingerie as well as a photo with my ankles in restraints, in addition to a surfing pic along the lines of what I’d of posted on a traditional dating app.
On a similar note, you might want to consider mentioning your height in your profile. If I match with a profile with no height listed in the profile, I ask almost immediately. If a profile does list a height and it’s in my desired range, I look at their photos and profile text much more closely. It saves some time that might otherwise be wasted.
Be authentic and honest.
This is your space to be totally upfront with what you’re looking for and what you want. Like double penetration? Say it! Interested in a gangbang? Write it down! Looking for love with a kinky side? Tell people! I find it so fun to just put it out there that I highly value a guy who can make me squirt. I don’t know how many Bumble dates it would take before I could bring this up. Be unique and fun with how you present your needs and wants. You’ve got the power to create a roadmap toward your own sexual pleasure . Everyone loves a profile that is both straightforward and interesting.
Revisit your profile often.
You’ll find that as you engage with and meet people on Feeld, your desires and interests will likely change. I started on the app as a single straight woman looking for men. I then opened it up to women, because I realized I wanted to explore whether or not I might be bi. I was never really into couples, but many profiles are specifically looking for couples to join. I once changed my profile to “heteroflexible” before finally switching it back to straight female looking for men. It’s fun to change it up and see how it feels. The world is your oyster for sexual expression!
Learn your acronyms.
Be ready to Google a lot of acronyms and research definitions for many words you’ve never heard of. There are many fetishes and categories of desires. Here are a few of my favorites:
