I want to upload a picture without my face on it as a public photo, how come I can't?

Sorry, you can’t. We’re a visual dating app, not an image bank. Please only use clear and high-definition pictures of yourself. If you want to upload a picture that doesn’t comply with this golden rule, you can always connect your Instagram account to your Surge gallery - but your profile picture still has to contain your face. The better the profile, the bigger chance of matches! And that’s what everyone wants.
