There’s only one thing standing between you and your next date: Your Tinder profile photo.

Get it right, and you could find yourself in demand. But, get it wrong, and you could end up dateless.

Mashable asked some of the trendiest people at London Fashion Week how to pose for a Tinder profile photo. And, of course, they gave us some stellar advice on how to create a show-stopper.

Here’s how it’s done:

Be a bit mysterious

“Be a bit mysterious. That’s a bit difficult on Tinder. You don’t want to seem overly friendly, don’t want to give out the wrong impression.” Izzy Van Dyke and Christine Donahue, fashion students.

Be elegant

Don’t take yourself too seriously

“I like to not take myself too seriously. That’s who I am as a person. I like to have fun. I wouldn’t want someone to think I’m a bit pretentious or posey.” Jade-Marie Merchent, fashion designer.

Don’t pose

“No respectable person poses for a Tinder profile photo. You have pictures taken of you and then you select them. I think my Bumble picture is me in Monaco in front of Casino Royale and I’m like: “What up?” with a Ferrari behind me.” Delia Bennett, growth manager.

Be transparent in who you are

“You know what? I wanna be seen as someone who’s fun but also I wanna be quite transparent in who I am. I don’t want to come across as boring or not as interesting as I am.” Chidera Eggerue, creative director.

Look sexy and sassy

Something between a smile and a serious face

“It’s really normal. I don’t really smile in pictures. I try to do something in between a smile and a serious face, which is a good solution.” Camilla Glorioso, photographer.

Pretend to be cool

Pose naturally
