A Study Finds the Best Pose to Help You Attract People in Online Dating

Whether or not someone swipes right on you on Tinder usually comes down to a matter of SECONDS. They glance at your picture, make an instant judgment, and swipe. So you’d better make that picture count.

A new study out of Princeton University found the best pose for getting dates. And the trick is . . . to spread yourself out.

The researchers found that people who had pictures where they held their arms out to the sides or put their feet on a desk and leaned back with their hands behind their head had more success than people who crossed their arms or kept their arms in tight.

And the difference is significant: People who stretched themselves out in their photos got almost TWICE as many messages as people who closed themselves off.

The researchers say that basically, you’re just like a peacock. Quote, “In the animal world, taking up more space and maximizing presence is used as a signal for attracting a mate.

“By exerting dominance, they’re trying to signal, ‘I am able to do things, I have a space, I have access to resources.”

You know how when you go to someone’s house, you immediately start judging it . . . even without realizing you’re doing it? Yeah . . . everyone does that to you too.

A new survey found the average person has totally judged you and made up their mind about how you live within 26 SECONDS of entering your place. Here are 10 of the snap judgments they use to come up with their opinion . . .

  1.  The smell.
  2.  The amount of clutter.
  3.  Any stains or marks on the walls.
  4.  How nice the couch is.
  5.  The decorations on the walls.
  6.  Whether the way you decorated is modern or stylish.
  7.  Piles of mail stacked up.
  8.  Whether shoes are arranged neatly or scattered everywhere.
  9.  Kids toys lying around.
  10.  The amount of random dust.
