On the plus side, newbies invariably get it wrong first time out. So while they flounder at conversation with the first guy they swiped right on – Daniel, 33, beer mat collector – we are sailing past them stealing their future husbands. But Julie cautions against overdoing it, saying, "Nix the bathing suit photos, as it's the same as lingerie with a different material.Show just a little cleavage to look flirty."Variety may be the spice of life in the bedroom or on a date.
