If the dating app Tinder created our swipe-left-or-swipe-right world, a new generation of competitors is piling on to perfect it: There’s Hinge, which offers a heightened level of curation—and less of the creepy randomness of Tinder—by linking you to your Facebook friends’ friends; Happn, which GPS-tracks your daily wanderings to see where you overlap with nearby girls; and Tastebuds, which raids your music collection to find women with similar musical tastes.
If you’re wearing v-necks, you need to avoid deep v’s at all costs. Just make sure the bottom point of the “v” doesn’t go past the top of your armpits and you’ll be fine.
1) Crack the photo code once and for all “You don’t have to be really good-looking; you just have to seem interesting,” says L. No bar shots (drinking as an avocation is not attractive), no pets (not sexy), no cars (not a chick thing), no ski goggles or sunglasses (they block your face), no selfies (8% fewer clicks), no topless photos (nudity gets half the clicks), and no grins (women click more on prideful poses—think raised head, puffed-up chest).

With so much dating firepower at your fingertips, why aren’t you sharing sheets all the time?
Well, you’re probably doing it wrong, dating experts say.
