Given your measurements and physical description, you would appeal to many women. Your height at 6’1″ alone is right up there with the range in height that many woman prefer.
The dating apps, Tinder, Bumble and Facebook Dating are all fairly different.
If you are using a uniform dating profile for all these dating apps, you have a higher likelihood of not getting matches.
Tinder’s vibe is more casual in nature. It is about instant impression and gratification.
To this end, you need to use photos that are very attractive in nature and more superficial, within limits.
Bumble is more about serious relationships. To this end, your photos need to be of more substance, giving women a good perspective on what your life is like and what activities you participate in.
Facebook Dating at this point in time is still fairly new and trying to find its identity. Having a combination of both eye-catching superficial photos and activity photos would probably be your best bet on Facebook Dating for now, until it finds its identity.
Your photos are so important on dating apps. Even though you aren’t photogenic, you need to have excellent photos. You probably have some friends who have a natural ability of taking good photos of themselves that they then post on their social media.
Ask these friends for their help with your photos. Better yet, find a professional photographer who is experienced in taking photos for dating apps. Look through his or her portfolio of work and hire them if you like what you see.
Just about everyone, male or female, reaches a point where they feel like their self-confidence has taken a hit on dating apps. Don’t take it personally. Everyone has their tastes and people tend to be a lot more picky when they are on dating apps than they would be when picking someone to date in real life.
Get a boost to your confidence by making sure that you are still spending quality time with family and friends who will naturally give you compliments. Don’t spend all your time on dating apps. That is not psychologically healthy for anyone.
