I’ve heard men complain frivolously for not getting enough matches on Tinder, while women grunt about meeting prospective dates who turn out to be sleazebags. Women are a little more complicated than men. Whether they just want get laid or try for something sort of real, they take into account more than just how hot men are when deciding if they want to swipe right. Men, on the other hand, normally just take into account the hotness quotient while swiping right. This creates a vacuum when men don’t get enough matches and women get frustrated with their experiences.
Here we provide you some tips to create the perfect Tinder profile that will attract the right women and boost your game.
1. Understand how women use Tinder
Men swipe right on Tinder on a much higher scale than women do. This means that there are a whole lot of men who want to be with women than there are women who would like to be with men. Men operate on a binary scale of 1 or 0, hot or not hot. That is all it takes for men to swipe right on someone. Women think differently. They take your pictures, your description and how both of those things align to tell them something about who you are.
2. Put up pictures that focus on your face and body
How can you expect someone to swipe right on you when the person can barely make out your features? Be a pal and smile for the camera. No woman wants to date someone extremely serious or with dental issues. Make sure that you highlight your best features on the pictures. Put yourself in the shoes of the women going through your profile. Would they appreciate the mirror selfies and half-face pictures? Its 2018. Show off who you are with confidence.
3. Make sure your bio isn’t too long
One word is too short, and a paragraph is too much. If you have no clue where to start, try to make us laugh somehow, whether it’s with a joke, a popular opinion or a reference to pop culture. Humour is one of the best ways to attract attention to yourself. It can act as an unexpected method to make more women swipe right on you because everyone likes a humorous person. If you’re not the funny guy at all, maybe include where you’re from, a cool place you’ve traveled and something you do for fun. Show off your interests.
4. Mention your college and where you work
Listing both is great as sharing the same alma mater is a wonderful conversation starter. But you should place more importance on listing your job. Or where you intern. That automatically opens a door to your interests and hobbies. And anything is better than women swiping left on you because you’re unemployed, right?
5. Include your height in your bio if you are tall. If you are short, be real about it
Yes, women care a great deal about your height. Many women like guys who are tall, hence mentioning how tall you are can actually work in your favour. Similarly, if you are short and are conscious about it, be real and mention that as well. You wouldn’t want to end up meeting someone taller than you and creating an awkward situation, right?
6. Avoid uploading group pictures
Sure, you may have some great pictures with your buddies, but on Tinder you are looking for someone who might be interested in you. I’ve heard of unfortunate incidents when women have matched with men only to get the number of ‘their hot friend in the group photo’. That is just tragic.
7. Do NOT upload pictures of you with girls
This does not make you look desirable at all. They just makes women confused and leaves them wondering if that girl is an ex, just a friend, or your sister. And if it’s your sister, they’ll start to wonder why you’re close enough with her to include her in your Tinder profile. Bottom line, all the women I know always swipe left on guys that have pictures with other women.
8. It is always safe to upload pictures with dogs or cats
If you have a pet, or know someone who does, take advantage of it. Take a nice picture and upload it on Tinder. I cannot tell you how many times my friends have swiped right on guys because they like animals.
9. Don’t include trademark dating profile lines
It’s great if you are “just a fun-loving guy looking to meet some new people,” but it doesn’t say anything about you. You become one of those endlessly boring profiles that are inadvertently swiped left on. If you have to resort to clichés, it is better to not write anything at all. Also, refrain from using pick up lines. Maybe keep that for the actual conversation.
I feel like guys think women want one type of guy: the hyper-macho, emotionally detached, athletic hottie. But not everybody wants that. And in an effort to create the illusion that you are the ‘dream hunk’, you lose out on good things about yourself and that affects your Tinder game. Put these tips to the test and you’ll come out with flying colours.
