Many people have mixed feelings about dating websites, especially Tinder. Since its inception, Tinder has quickly grown as one of the most frequently used apps for people to meet other people in their area. And as anyone who has used it for more than five minutes can tell you, there are some basic Tinder etiquette rules people need to follow if they want to increase their chances of not getting swiped left. For example: don't be an overly confident jerk, don't have misleading photos, and don't assume that women are only interested in how much money you make.

While it can be argued that people who are on Tinder don't take it seriously and are only there to have fun or to hook up, it should not be assumed. Below are some of the biggest Tinder turnoffs for women. (Note: everyone has different tastes, and what some heterosexual women find attractive, others may not. But this list reflects what I have heard as complaints from a number of women).

    You Don't Have Any Photos Of Yourself

    I have no choice but to assume you are not a real person.

    Your Bio Section Is Cocky

    Too many guys on Tinder use their bio section to let their ignorance shine through.

    You're Being Mean

    Telling me I look better in my first two pictures than I do in any of the rest of them isn't exactly a compliment, neither is asking me if my personality is as amazing as my smile.

    You Use Vulgar Pick Up Lines

    Regardless of why a woman may be on the site, starting the conversation with an explicit reference is gross.

    You Only Have Group Pictures

    I don't feel like playing a game of "Where's Waldo?" just to figure out which guy you are.

    You Emphasize How Much Money You Make

    Flaunting how much money you make, like one person who actually made their main picture a screenshot of their bank balance, is assuming and unattractive.

    You Can't Spell

    If you don't know by now the difference between "your" and "you're," then we have absolutely nothing in common.

    You Message Too Much

    This is especially a problem for the guys who get mad if you don't answer them within a 30-minute time span.

    You Want To Meet Up Right Away

    If you ask me to meet you at a bar before you have even asked how I am doing or what I do for a living, I am most definitely going to assume you have the wrong intentions.

    You Post Deceptive Photos

    If you are a guy who is 5'2", you might want to have this reflected in your photos – just to save yourself some awkward dates.

    I Can't See Your Face

    Call me superficial, but if I am going to be matched with you on this dating site, I would appreciate knowing what you look like.

    You're Being Too Serious

    You don't need to be a goofball, but taking yourself too seriously and not being able to joke around on such a casual site can be a little annoying.

    You Only Have One Picture Of Yourself

    In this age of technology, I find it suspicious there is only one picture you felt comfortable to post.

    You Post Pictures Of Your Car

    I really don't care what you drive, similar to how I don't care how much money you make. I am on here to meet people, not machines.

    You're Not A Local

    Unless you are looking for a one night stand, why are you on Tinder when you are only in this state for two days?

    You Post Gym Selfies

    You should be at the gym to work out, not to show the world how big your biceps are via social media.

    You Have An Overly Specific Bio

    Let's leave a little mystery. There's no need to tell me your life story before I have even been matched with you.

    You Post Mirror Shots

    Especially because these mirror pics usually involve the guy with his shirt off.

    You Use Cheesy Pick Up Lines

    While cheesy is better than vulgar, asking me if I fell from heaven just shows me that you aren't very original.

    Your Profile Picture Shows You Holding A Fish

    I don't know why this is so common, but way too many guys are on boats holding up fish in their profile pictures.
