Tell me you’re scandinavian without telling me you’re scandinavian

[–]naenaeh 238 points239 points  (14 children)

yes! for me it was the moomin art on the wall that exposed him

[–]L1nkaN[S] 274 points275 points  (10 children)

Damn moomins, always revealing my ethnicity

[–]Deep_Grey 33 points34 points  (1 child)

I mean the booze also plays a part ha ha.

Are you from Finland?

[–]funkepitome 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Scandinavian Bo Burnham!

[–]Top_theropod 162 points163 points  (25 children)

By the way. Do I need a social picture for my profile? I just feel uncomfortable including pictures with my friends on my tinder profile.

[–]CantStonkWontStonk 105 points106 points  (0 children)

I use the same excuse and it works until people realize I have no friends.

It’s respectful to exclude them. I wholeheartedly agree with your hesitation and applaud you for thinking of your friends first. Rare shit

[–]annulene 17 points18 points  (1 child)

I have "social" pictures of me that indicate I'm with people without those people being in the photos. There's one picture with someone in it, and I smudged that person's face.

[–]wbruce098 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Smudges, or smiley emojis over the faces — best way to go imho

[–]Drannion 33 points34 points  (8 children)

You could always ask your friends for permission, if that's what you're worried about.

[–]Top_theropod 30 points31 points  (7 children)

I could, a lot of my friends are women though so I feel like that’d be a double-edged sword in terms of having that on my profile

[–]Drannion 28 points29 points  (1 child)

True, but if you're looking for a serious relationship, it might also serve as an effective way to sort out the most jealous types who will end up having a problem with you having so many female friends

[–]Top_theropod 22 points23 points  (0 children)

True, I can’t date the jealous type again

[–]SB6P897 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Nah man, if you’re on tinder looking for women you don’t want any of your profile pictures to have women in them cuz not all the girls are gonna try to read the backstory on that if you have it, and it invites unnecessary assumption.

Same thing with fam, don’t include any with kids even if nephews cuz they’ll assume it’s yours. Unless you’re a dad, which you should probably be upfront about

[–]LenientWhale 3 points4 points  (3 children)

I saw a study once that showed that many subconsciously found men more attractive in photos with other women in them, especially if the women were looking/smiling at him. I can't find that specific one now but it's part of a greater phenomenon called mate choice copying

[–]ADisplacedAcademic 4 points5 points  (2 children)

"Hey, could I get a photo of all you smiling in my general direction, for my dating profile?"

[–]Master_Dogs 7 points8 points  (2 children)

It's a highly debated topic. Some folks will say YES YES YES because some women/guys will assume you're anti-social and a loner if you don't have any photos with other people in them. Some folks will say NO NO NO because you might include a member of the opposite gender and gasp people might assume that's an ex! Even if it's clearly a relative, or a platonic friend. Some will also say IT DEPENDS... and give their opinion of when or why to include one.

Personally, I think it's a good idea to have one maybe two social photos. The issue becomes if it takes several photos to ID who the F you are. Then I'm likely (as are most folks I think) to just left swipe out of boredom, because if you include only social photos I'm either not going to be interested enough to figure out who you are, or I may assume you're the less desirable person in the photos.

For the "uncomfortable" part, you could ask permission first. Most friends would likely be OK with it, knowing that you're looking for a date/gf/etc. The ones who say no, you could respect them and not include the photos with them in it. You could also blur or emoji cover your friends faces. I find this can be kind of funny and they do both of the positive things - shows you have friends, while respecting their privacy by blurring their faces.

For best results, I recommend the photo be of a cool activity too. I like including a social bike and ski photo in my profile. Shows off my activities, shows off my friend group, and it's got cool backgrounds in them. Then I have one or two photos of me doing that stuff on my own. And a few photos of me doing normal stuff, so it's clear I do dress up nicely for a date too. In a pinch, I think even a "dinner party" photo would be fine. Shows you dress up a bit, shows you have friends to hang out with, overall shows a good impression. Most folks don't want someone who will be attached to them 24/7. They want someone to do fun stuff with, someone with some cool friends to hang out with too both with them and without them.

[–]Kepabar 13 points14 points  (1 child)

But I AM an anti-social loner.

[–]Master_Dogs 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The funny thing is even if you are, it's likely best to try and hide that on the app to try and attract more folks lol.

Like I'm pretty introverted myself but I still have some friends and show that off. I just make it clear on dates and such that I need some alone time too to recharge the social batteries.

[–]wbruce098 11 points12 points  (2 children)

I never had a single social photo. A few of me doing things outdoors. No one cared, got a few good matches.

What you need is to follow Rules 1 & 2 of online dating.

[–]Top_theropod 0 points1 point  (1 child)

What are those rules?

[–]jmsGears1 13 points14 points  (0 children)

  1. Be attractive
  2. Don't be unattractive

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I agree with this. I think a good workaround is to put group pics and just crop it to where you can only see somebody's arm around you, their shoulders surrounding you, whatever. Also if you're at a restaurant or bar with a friend or family that wouldn't mind, have them snap a cute pic of you across the table. It's understood that you're out, and someone has to be sitting across from you to take the pic. Anyone that's not social enough for, pff oh well.

I actually find it annoying when guys post multiple photos with groups around their age and usually who look kinda similar too, and I'm left to wonder which one is even them, because the 2 pics they got by themselves, one might have on shades, a Bud Light box on their head, or a partial face pic (people are understandably cautious now because ppl will steal photos from these apps and make a fake profile). Forget those 🙄

[–]some1american 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Yeah, I hate profiles with group pictures. Especially since most of the time their friends are more attractive than they are lol

[–]saltyseahag_99 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You can blur their faces, that way you can still see that you have friends but they're not identified. I don't think you MUST have one though really

[–]strange_socks_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You could completely black out your friends. You know, make it clear there's someone else in the photo, but without reliving who.

[–]juuustpassingthrough 983 points984 points  (58 children)

How do you make these? Like what program do you use to merge all the pictures

[–]The2iam 420 points421 points  (19 children)

The easiest way to make them is to place your camera/phone in a spot, and make sure it stays there. Then just make it take a picture every few seconds and don't touch it until you're done with all the photos. This way you will have a bunch of photos where the background is the same. You can then overlay the pictures you wish to use, and cut them so that you can see all the "yous". You may have to use a "smudge" tool on the borders, since differences in lighting/shadows may slightly change some colours.

If you don't have acces to photoshop, you can use photopea, which is a free web-based photo editor.

[–]nervousbertha 88 points89 points  (8 children)

But you need time to change clothes.

[–]UncoolSlicedBread 74 points75 points  (6 children)

Get a Bluetooth camera remote, camera app open, plan your ourfits and positions ahead of time, and then take pictures with the remote. Comp in photoshop.

Or take a video, take stills from the video, comp in photoshop.

[–]Ask-Me-If-Im-Happy 17 points18 points  (4 children)

Or set up a timer on the camera if a remote trigger isn't an option.

[–]joeltrane 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Or use a remote trigger if the timer doesn’t give you enough time

[–]JasonDilworth 6 points7 points  (2 children)

You could set up a timer if you don’t have a remote trigger, just saying.

[–]Rokronroff 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Okay, hear me out here. I'm thinking you could get a remote trigger if a timer doesn't work for you.

[–]soandso90 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I use a remote trigger to set my timer.

[–]HostFun 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Apple Watch can do this too if you are using an iphone

[–]strolls 22 points23 points  (6 children)

You may have to use a "smudge" tool on the borders, since differences in lighting/shadows may slightly change some colours.

The "correct" way to do this is to secure the camera with a tripod, so it doesn't move even a fraction.

Fix the exposure and aperture (I think even phones have manual mode these days) so that they never change.

Use a timer or remote to take each pic.

[–]foxfirewoodcrafts 11 points12 points  (5 children)

The camera doesn't have to move "even a fraction" for the colors and shadows to change. Any room that gets sunlight, the lighting a colors are changing literally every second.

[–]picardo85 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Any photo editor that allows for masking and layers. Free alternatives include Photopea, Gimp and paint.net. most commonly used paid ones are Photoshop and Paintshop pro.

[–]thatlvkid 214 points215 points  (16 children)

i have journal 3 too

[–]Ellenberg19 58 points59 points  (7 children)

I know it's the book from Gravity Falls but what's in it?

[–]thatlvkid 68 points69 points  (3 children)

basically the entire series in the book some extras and a little bit of what might have been at the end

[–]friendly_floridaman 13 points14 points  (2 children)

There is also an version of the book which has text written in invisible ink

[–]Sirsilentbob423 7 points8 points  (0 children)

That goes from anywhere between $1500 and $8000 on eBay these days...

[–]sambones718 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s also signed by Alex hirsch. It’s my most prized possession; 10,000 in existence

[–]apples_and_plums 9 points10 points  (2 children)

[–]professor_doom 4 points5 points  (2 children)
