Tinder profile pics are more often than not as photoshoot-ed, photoshopped, filtered, curated and strategically cropped as best each user can. We’re seldom aware that nope, Real-Life Potential Romantic Partner Person will not always come with artful Instagram filters, sunlight streaming through their hair with on-point eyebrow and eyeliner #wokeuplikedis.
So, a number of people started posting their Tinder profile pics vis-a-vis pictures of what they look like in real life.

Or what they’ll look like when they show up on your doorstep during the blizzard, because they’ll want nothing more than to spend this long, bleak period snuggling up all warm and cozy with you. (Aaaaw.)

“I want to grow old with you, if that means helping you readjust your dorky glasses on your cute dorky face for always.”
