"So ultimately, people want to see the person who's going to show up on the date.
If you put friends in pictures, inevitably you're going to be compared to your own friends." You're already going to be compared to everyone on the site, so why would you do that to yourself in your own profile? You might think it shows how sociable and fun you are, but really the person on the other end is just getting tired with trying to work out who you are. Especially if the first picture is a group picture — forget it." If you're a woman looking for a man, or vice versa, you should avoid having pictures with people of the opposite sex.

In reality, you just look boring, and you're giving your potential matches too much of a reason to swipe left (left meaning no thanks). 20 words is not that many, and you can write anything."

"It doesn't matter how attractive you look in your pictures, if you haven't written a single word then people question what the heck you're doing on there," Ettin said.

"People have a tendency to look through every picture and find one they don't like, and then dismiss you because of that one," she said. "People are making a snap decision, so if you're too far away, or if you're blurry, they will swipe left on you regardless of what you look like," Ettin said.
"So don't let them make those assumptions." Even if you don't have the cliché photo of you skydiving, you should still put up a photo of you doing something interesting.
