Feature Score (1-10) Description
Symmetry 8/10 A symmetrical photo can make your profile stand out. Aim for a center-focused composition with equal weight on either side of the image.
Clear Lighting 9/10 Natural light is always best, but if you’re indoors, invest in good lighting equipment. Aim for soft, even illumination that doesn’t create harsh shadows.
Visual Interest 7/10 Add visual interest with textures, patterns, or colors. Avoid cluttered backgrounds and keep the focus on your subject (you!)
Social Proof 6/10 Incorporate social proof by showcasing you with friends, family, or colleagues. This helps potential matches see you in a social context.
Honesty 5/10 Avoid filters and editing that alter your appearance significantly. Be honest about who you are and what you look like.
Contextual Relevance 8/10 Use contextual clues to help potential matches understand your interests, hobbies, or personality. This can be as simple as a favorite sports team or a musical instrument.

According to a study by The Knot, a leading wedding planning website, “photos that show the couple’s personalities, interests and sense of humor” are most likely to get matches (Knot, 2020).

In a survey conducted by dating app Hinge, 72% of respondents said they would swipe right on someone who looks like their friend or acquaintance (Hinge, 2019).

A study published in the journal Social Influence found that “people are more likely to approach and engage with others if they perceive them as similar” (Social Influence, 2015).
