FRISKY FRIDAY FRONT: Sexy Photo in your Dating Profile May Hurt More than Help You

Study: 
Use a Sexy Photos in your Tinder Profile? 
You’re More Likely to Be Seen as Incompetent and Unlikeable
If you use Tinder, Bumble, or Hinge, you may want to carefully consider what you choose for your profile photo.
University of Arizona researchers have found that people who post sexy photos on their dating profiles are more likely to be seen in three distinctly unflattering ways:  incompetent, unlikeable, and less likely to be looking for a long-term relationship.
Overall, male profiles, with sexy photos, were judged more harshly than female profiles with comparatively sexy photos.
Researchers wrote, “Our results found that sexualized dating profiles incurred social costs (e.g., less perceived task competence, less liking and less social attractiveness) – and were also at an increased likelihood of experiencing sexual cyber dating abuse than were their non-sexualized counterparts.”
