There is nothing wrong with a bikini pic or two, but a dating profile that is dominated by bikini pics sends the wrong message to men.
Yes, you love how you look in a bikini.
You were on vacation in your bikini pics and you looked amazing.
The happiness and glow in your face in those bikini pics has you believing that you have never looked that good.
The first issue here is that you are way too caught up in how good you look in these bikini pics.
It makes you feel good to look at them, as you relish the moments they were taken.
It’s a high.
This is further compounded by the deluge of men who are matching with you and complimenting your pics.
You have a double high.
Guys have never made you feel this good about yourself in your day to day life.
It’s no wonder you hesitate to remove your bikini pics or reduce their number.
If you are on a dating app to find a serious relationship, you don’t do yourself any favors in posting multiple pics of yourself in a bikini.
As aforementioned, you can have one or two bikini pics but no more.
When you are looking for a serious relationship, you are better off posting pics of yourself engaged in interesting activities that you love.
This gives a guy who is looking to find a serious partner a greater perspective on who you are as a person.
When you are doing activities that he is passionate about, he gets to connect with you on a deeper level.
You won’t get this level of an emotional connection when you have bikini pics on your dating profile and not much else.
Remember that it isn’t only about getting matches on a dating app, it is about getting quality matches.
Your bikini pics are sure to garner lots of matches, but they have to be the right matches.
It does you no good to have a bunch of matches who aren’t taking you seriously.
Although it’s a boost to your ego when you are getting all these matches and likes, it won’t take long before you get frustrated over the fact that the lion’s share of messages you are getting are from guys who keep asking you to send them more pics of you in your bikini, or worse, nude.
Yes, this is what happens when you post multiple pics of yourself in a bikini, exposing excessive flesh.
You aren’t leaving too much to the imagination, and this invites trouble.
Stop for a second and ask yourself about whether you are serious about meeting a serious relationship partner.
The attention women receive on dating apps can be addicting.
It overwhelms a lot of women, especially women who are in bikinis or scantily clad.
Ever since you signed up on a dating app and posted your bikini pics, the adulation has been nonstop.
A part of you worries that in removing the majority of your bikini pics, you run the risk of no longer getting anywhere near the attention you have been getting so far from men.
It’s possible that you are terrified of missing out on the matches, likes and interest signals.
You have to get over this fear.
In the end, if you are looking for a serious relationship, you have to dramatically reduce the number of pics of you in a bikini, and significantly increase the number of pics of you immersed in an interesting activity that you love.
That reduces the number of matches you get, but that’s fine.
Remember, it is about the quality of your matches, not the quantity.
