Anything you think you can provide to them, they can go online and find within eight seconds. Keeping up with a bunch of interesting accounts is fine, but you always want to keep your "followers" total higher than the number of accounts you follow.
If the scale starts to dip in the other direction, then that’s a giveaway that this individual is as basic as it gets.
I always find it interesting to open up a girl’s following list and analyze what sorts of accounts she's into. And if you are Kanye West -- you're not single so what are you doing here?
Almost 100% of the time you’re guaranteed to see at least a handful of the same ones. Anyway, following zero people is a dead giveaway that this person has WAY too high an opinion of himself/herself. People think they look better or come off more exclusive if they have a lot of followers but only a small number of pictures posted to their profile.
Nothing makes more of an impact on your dating profile than your main image.
You can have everything going for you -- great job, no kids, never married, and sporting an appropriate number of teeth -- and one bad shadow, receding hairline, or misplaced background can render you undateable with one swipe. Researching profile photos has surfaced bizarre information, like the fact that the most popular guys show the left side of their faces and demonstrate pride.
Anyone who does this is either alarmingly self-centered or a complete sociopath. However, if someone is posting an absurd number of food pics in restaurants, then something is up. Actually, let’s expand this one to breakfast, lunch, AND brunch.
If they’re steadily posting a lot of food pics between the hours of 10am and 3pm then that is another red flag.
As a rule of thumb, you want at least 50% of the comments to be members of the same sex -- and preferably friends.It means he or she doesn’t work or go to school or do anything productive with their time.Being available for heavy, boozy, midday meals four times a week is not something to brag about.Be weary of “I’m so jealous of you,” “You aren’t fair,” and other bitter comments.Those can indicate that her friends secretly can't stand her.If you only take photos of yourself, it doesn't take much to discern that you're probably a bit (or more than a bit) of a narcissist.It means he or she is way too into himself/herself.If the ratio is entirely thirsty individuals looking to flirt, then this one is probably starved for attention. If there aren’t at least a few comments like “OMG you look amazing! ” from a couple of old besties, then you may want to look out.A guy should have at least a handful of his buddies commenting, whether it be inside jokes or even lighthearted ball busting.Just because that girl you've started seeing has a decent Instagram page with some particularly impressive bikini shots does NOT mean this is someone worth investing in for the long haul.Same goes for that guy with the rock-hard abs who also looks deceptively hot with glasses on.
