Contrary to what most people think, the app where you get to find the cutest guys is not Tinder, it's actually Instagram. However, finding them is not as easy and meeting them can be tricky. You need to be on top of your game to be successful.
If you're having trouble finding cute guys on Instagram, you should start by looking for a common interest and progress from there. It would also be a good idea to watch out for fake profiles and to be patient.

Read on to learn my best tips about how to find cute guys on Instagram.
While it's true that not everything you see on social media is true, it's still safe to assume that looking through someone's feed can give you an idea as to their interest. It can even tell you a bit about who he is and if he's someone you'd be interested in.
However, if you have trouble deciding what to look for, perhaps you should just go with what you like. If you like books, perhaps it's time to check out #books and go from there. And since there are millions of people on the app, you should be able to find someone you can connect with.
Sharing an interest can definitely break the ice. It can potentially get a conversation going between the two of you, as well as sustain it. It can even give an idea of who to avoid. If you don't have a common interest, a mutual friend will do as someone who can connect you.

Don't Jump In With Both Feet Immediately
When you do find a cute guy with whom you're almost certain you can connect, don't jump in and DM them in a flash. Start by making normal Instagram things instead. These could include liking and commenting on some photos and maybe following them.
Once you establish your identity, you can maybe DM them. After some time of Instagram flirting, you can then move on to having a coffee date or something if you're both in the same area. Keep things simple and take them easy.
Be Wary Of Fakes
Try not to get too carried away with perfection. Sure, some people like Instagram because of the filters. However, some people use the filters to the extreme to help cover up their real faces.
So if you see poreless skin and all too smooth faces on their timeline, it's probably because they used a filter to make themselves appear a lot more pretty than in reality. Some people use other people's pictures in their accounts. So make sure you're cautious.

Don't Like Everything
Even if you like him so much and you don't think you can help it, you shouldn't like all his pictures. You're interested, sure, but you're not a stalker. So avoid freaking him out as much as possible. Because even though you think you're being sweet and admiring, it only comes across as creepy.
Stick to liking their most recent posts instead. Make your presence known to him by liking no more than 1-2 photos at a time. Practice some restraint, and don't be a serial liker.
Always wait for him to respond. Don't bombard him with DMs and comments. You definitely don't want a one-sided interaction with the cute guys. Chances are, if they don't respond, they're not interested. So don't push it.
Guys can also find overly aggressive girls to be tiring. So even if he's interested, he's probably going to lose interest soon if you don't give him a chance to send his own signals.
