SF is known to be one of the worst tinder cities for men so don’t keep expectations too high. with that said, these pics could be much better.

i edited 2 of the new photos for you— use them
3C42A2C9-501B-4B16-B189-8C1607D2E490.jpeg
3FE25B10-CD2E-4932-BCDC-2D60089D495E.jpeg
for the walking photo, the t shirt looks too loose around your waist, i don’t like the jeans color esp in combination with coat, the way the jeans are rolled up is an atrocity so i cropped that out. it looks like you have a relatively longer torso/shorter legs— keeping jeans same color as t shirt would make you look taller and don’t roll them up.

would put camera photo 3rd, then looking out the window 4th then the one on the phone 5th

would take out smiling one, looks kinda creepy and not masculine

overall got a few decent photos to start here. social photo is first priority for improvement

edit: the camera photo is aggressively yellow— i’d fuck around with the colors a bit

Don't mind him. He's just desperately trying to prove he's Asian.

Hey SF that’s my home lol I live in New York now. If you do live there I would say go to a few iconic spots for tourist trap photos like the Golden Gate Bridge, Lombard st., the mosaic tile steps on 16th street and just about any colorful mural in the mission to really make the photos pop. Keep up the great work. Over covid park dates were my go to with a bottle of wine but now that things are open I’m sure you’ll find a nice bar to get a drink.

Nice to see you giving Tinder a try. I like pic #1 quite a bit, especially with Rags2Bitches' edit. I was going to say don't use #2 because your leg/torso proportions look weird, but it's better with the edit. I like the wall-leaning one, don't like the garden-gnome mug one though I appreciate that you went for a goofy pic.

I am Asian!!! Or at lease i think i am 🤔

@Dewm When you were in SF did you do tinder? Would you agree it is as cut throat as everyone makes it out to seem? Thanks for the picture ideas. I was just at Crissy Fields trying to get a good pic but my camera battery died lol.

@Adam Goofy pic was mostly for me lol. That's just my renaissance faire outfit :D
RagstoBitches definitely improved the walking picture.
Ill probably keep my current lineup and see how it works for a week. Then try and filter in other pictures to see if there is any improvement

I have no idea what is good or not. But if that's, so it seems like the profile is decent as of now

It was tough but I had some success. Do hinge as well I got a couple dates that also ended in lays. Ultimately I can’t complain as I met someone who even though it’s long distance we still talk a lot she even came to see me in NY. Also my tinder dating came at a time when I openly expressed my desires of being in an open relationship subsequently I achieved dating two women at once. Ironically when I knew I was moving to New York I pulled away from the apps as I just didn’t have the time with getting ready to move - I had a girl text me to set up a date whom had been waiting for her vaccine immunities to kick in. When I told her I was leaving and wasn’t seeing anyone new she was still interested. Ultimately I got her back to my apartment and she appreciated my honesty about being in an open relationship, dating other people, knew I was leaving and still wanted to make it happen. Getting her naked and in front of me the only thing that stopped me from sleeping with her was her honesty when she revealed she had herpes. While in my thirst phase this might have been something I looked past I ethically could not knowingly have sex with someone who I knew had an STD while having sex with 2 other people regardless of how careful I was.

So it’s tough but you can line dates up every week and I just suggest being open, honest, and communicative. Women will find this refreshing and attractive. Honestly dude if you’re here on this forum you’re light years beyond the competition. You’ll do fine. :)

@Dewm thanks for the insight. Seems like it's just a numbers game in sf like everything else and you gotta just keep grinding away. Hopefully I don't run into any chicks with STDs >.<
Been lucky so far on that front

Surprisingly my tinder date didn't flake.

We vibed pretty well and she seemed to like me. She said several times I was very hot, she was attracted to me, and liked me.

We kissed a bunch and I tried to escalate but she kept stopping mid way. Like we would be making out, I'd be feeling her up, and then she would back away.

She kept talking about a previous ex being crazy. So she wanted to take it slow.

All in all a chill date. Most likely will be seeing her again and probably smashing on the 2nd date.
