Sorority Girls Reveal If You Should Include That Picture Of You Holding A Fish On Tinder


Tinder seems to have stood the test of time. People are still using it while supplementing their hookups with the likes of Bumble, Hinge, and, hopefully, real life interactions with living, breathing humans. When it comes to apps like these, the first impression you put out is obviously key to winning the hearts, and opening the legs, of members of the opposite sex. Having a fire pic is going to increase your chances of getting a right swipe.

What makes a good profile pic? How about a picture of you holding that fish you caught over spring break while doing a little deep sea fishing. Fish Brain dove into the data, and then surveyed some sorority girls in Florida to find out if girls find these type of photos attractive.

From Fish Brain:

Over 1000 members of the Alpha Epsilon Phi (AEPhi) sorority answered our survey that we conducted during November and December 2015. Their answers revealed that:

46% of young American women (in their late teens and early to mid-twenties) find Tinder photos of men holding a fish more attractive than those of men without!

So the short answer is that the majority tends to like those without the fish, but it’s not much of a difference for you to be rocking a sailfish in your profile. If you are going to shoot for the minority of the data and put a picture of yourself holding a fish, below are the most popular types of fish selected.

Great Northern Tilefish: 21%
Sailfish: 18%
African Pompano: 16%
Red Grouper: 12%
King Mackerel: 9%
Amber Jack: 8%
American Red Snapper: 8%
Hog Fish: 5%
Barracuda: 3%
Juvenile Common Carp: <1%

No one likes a carp. Cast your net out wide, gentleman, and catch a shit ton of fish.

    Once again your title contradicts the actual content in the column. You claim the survey says that holding a fish will help us get laid, but then contradict yourself by saying that the majority in the survey think otherwise. This seems to have become a common theme on TFM.

    Definitely going to add a picture of the gar I viciously bludgeoned with an anchor after it bit my bow.

    So you’re saying if my buddy has a picture with a King Mackerel and I have a picture with an Amber Jack, a girl is 1% more likely to swipe him right over me? #AllFishMatter

    This isn’t even an accurate assessment of the information. 46% find fish more attractive. This doesn’t mean 54% find fish less attractive. They could be indifferent, or they could have said they didn’t know. So your article title may be accurate or your writing in the article may be accurate. However, they can’t both be accurate and we don’t have enough information to determine which one is accurate. You shouldn’t be fired for this article, but you should definitely be reprimanded.

      This is a satire site. If you’re looking for journalistic accuracy, go to Rolling Stone.

    In Asia, the juvenile common carp is a highly-prized source of testosterone. You hold up one of those and the Asian chicks will be swiping right faster than a piranha hitting a dead squirrel.
