My experience wasn't as effective on Tinder, then again: some of these I couldn't apply.
I didn't have friends to hang out with, so nobody but myself to take my pictures. I had no mode of transportation, so nowhere to go to meet people..
o GED / Diploma at the time, so no opportunities at school / work either, because they weren't there. It wasn't until I started going to a church within walking distance of my place that I finally met a girl, got my GED + job and had a form of transportation. I made some friends eventually this way as well, so it was really just not thinking outside the box of what I need to do. Tinder might not be your best option if you're not a top-of-the-food-chain dude. You could be great, but just not have access to the methods at the moment. Take some time out of your week to go out somewhere as close by as possible. Before the church, I'd hang out at the mall at least once a week which is a 2 hour walk away from my place. I did get results that way, but not fast / effective enough. Take this advice to mind, guys: If you can't maximize your Tinder profile, go out into the real world and real places. Of course, the virus going around at the moment: that can be hard. But when you can, do that. You're much better off (both men and women) to meet up in person from the start, because online dating is not on equal footing for both of y'all usually.
