Important considerations. 1. these points are wise, but are also cultural and locationally specific, these tips will not work everywhere in the world. 2. most importantly the one about nudity in your photos. If you have a good body, showing it off CAN lead to more matches. Not everybody likes the same kind of photos. A decent picture of you at the beach - just nicely showing off your body, will work in some cases, if you do it in a non-rude way. With other people, an even more explicit shot, showing some body, some bulges, in a provocative posture, will also attract matches, but from different kinds of people. Just claiming outright that nudity is to be avoided, is half a story. 3. What is the point of boosting your elo? If somebody doesn't like you, high elo won't make them like you =.= It's like saying - if you want to get good at league of legends, buy a boosted account. Of course, that DOES NOT work. And if you're not exotic enough for your local crowd, then even the highest elo will not save you. 4. When you meet a person, DO NOT TALK ABOUT YOUR PROBLEMS.

If sloth from the goonies had a brother, it would be me. I always wear a pair of shades, along with a hat with the brim facing 5 o'clock - always. I talk with a lisp, and a very unsure tone in my voice. I'm 5'5" when I wear my boots. Size 14 though! I like to wear track suits, like the guys in sopranos. I have severe halitosis, so keeping a tin of altoids on me is a must. With all that said, I've never dabbled in these dating apps. Do you think I would have any success with them? Appreciate any feedback
