Can I get some feedback on my photos and looks generally? My best photos are scoring in the eights on Photofeeler and I'd like to take them to the next level. On tinder I've had 35 likes and six matches in a week in a city of 1 m people. Seven matches on Hinge in the same timespan.

Any tips on what photos to shoot next or how to improve my style/appearance would be much appreciated.

8.9 for attractiveness.

8.7.

8.1, I was using the plaid shirt photo here but this scored higher and got better feedback from the women I asked.

6.1, apparently this sort of photo doesn't score well on Photofeeler. Keeping it for now since skiing is a bit of a flex in the UK and you can see my cheekbone.


The rest of these aren't on my profile anymore:

6.9, I thought this would help me since it shows female preselection but it rated poorly and a few people suggested I take it out.

7.3, thought this was better but I guess I'm squinting and you can't see my teeth.

Don't have a score for this one. Took it out after someone pointed out bouldering is a bit of a boring/geeky sport. Might try one topless showing my back.


Bio says:
"Postgrad, weekend surf tripper, world traveller and unqualified masseuse. 6'3

Weaknesses: Accents and a great 🍑

Might let you steal my hoodie"

I got advice previously that I need more edge. This is probably still true so tips on increasing edge would be useful. I want to start wearing a couple of rings and maybe a chain. I would consider getting a tattoo as well but I feel like it's a little incongruous with my personality.

Could also use input on how to improve my physique. I feel like my shoulders and chest need the most work. I'm 6'3 and roughly 85 kg, running a three day a week full body routine at the moment but will switch soon.

As often stated on here, the problem with photofeeler is that it tends to reward broad appeal over polarization. Your pictures have good quality and composition, and you look comfortable in front of the camera, but they're generally a little bit bland. They give off the "boyfriend" vibe, which can get you a solid number of dates and lays from my experience, but if you want to go to the next level you need to add more edge to your style / expressions. This will likely lead you to getting less total matches at first, possibly less dates, but generally more girls that will be open to casual relationships (assuming that's what you're going for), and less bullshit along the way.

The bouldering pic isn't bad, it doesn't show you off super well but if you just need a hobby pic it gets the job done. I don't see bouldering as being too nerdy but I might be around a more nerdy culture in general than most people here. The ski pic awesome - won't score well on photofeeler because it doesn't actually show off your looks that well but paired with other photos that do show off looks I think it's great.

Ya i mirror Ytlords advice

You look like a nerd bro. Nice guy vibes. Physique need work but once youve got some better overall proportions and bf levels youll kill it.
Given your face id say you'd benefit from a full beard. Full brad pitt in fury style haircut too.

Action shot of you surfing up close would hoover in pussy but you need to probably hire a proper g photographer

Your photos are great tho they actually show you off well. Just needs a bit more fuckboy masculinity applied to them

Definitely need work on your physique.

Heres a bit of an example of what you should be aiming. Its based of what ive learned and from being with a proper bodybuilding coach.

Figure out your maintenance macros and calories. Derek from more plates more dates provides excellent information on all this.

300kcal surplus to start actually bulking. Macros should be probably 220 Protein. 350g carbs and 70g fats.
Best to do a loooot of research on proper dieting splits especially if your not on PEDs.

5 day split.
Back - monday
Chest, abs - tuesday
Rest - wednesday
Legs - thursday - take more carbs
Quick chest and shoulders - friday
Arms, calves - saturday
Rest - sunday

Check out guys on youtube. Max euceda and Davis Diley are good knowledge bases on how to train properly and some splits to hit.

From the sounds you probably have some good knowledge allready and it might just come down to proper form and better tempo.

Just absorb a fuckton of knowledge. Apply it and be patient. You will see your physique improve

Cheers both for your input.

I see what you mean about the nice guy or boyfriend vibe. I definitely need to channel more masculine, fuckboi energy.

I'll work on a few things and try to take some more pics in the next month:
  • Put together one or two more edgy outfits
  • Get some more accessories
  • Try different poses and more dynamic poses for the photos
  • Look for more visually appealing backgrounds such as graffiti wall or urban backdrop
  • Try a topless photo at the climbing gym
Given your face id say you'd benefit from a full beard. Full brad pitt in fury style haircut too.
I feel like the short beard I have at the moment suits me best in person but it doesn't come out as well in photos. I'll try growing it out again and see how it looks. Recently I've been getting a low/mid-fade at the barbers but I could try a Brad Pitt-esque undercut. That style feels like a bit of a trope here since Peaky Blinders is set in Birmingham where I live and they have similar cuts. I probably need to start getting it cut more often than every 6-8 weeks though so it's sharper.

I do have one surfing photo but I'm not sure how flattering it is. Is it worth putting up?

This is helpful thanks.

Since October I've been following ICF5x5 which I doubt is optimal but I'm still making progress and I want to get my squat to 100 kg and deadlift to 120 kg before I switch. In that time I've gone from ~77 to ~85 kg but I was super lean to begin with, coming out of training for a marathon.

I've been in the mindset of follow any plan consistently, eat lots and rest well. Now it’s probably time I start optimising my nutrition and follow a more appropriate plan. I’ll work out my maintenance calories and keep track of my macros for a couple of weeks.

Cheers for the resources.

Definitely man. Its cool youre good about the advice it shows the right attitute to improve.
I had a similar spray on my photos and took it honestly from there.

Its a good photo.... but does it have fuckboi appeal? No... (in my opinion)
Your first photo would be good or running out in the water once youve improved your physique will be a killer combo
