3 Quick and Easy Tips to Double Your Matches on Tinder
Most people use online dating applications like Tinder these days. However, not everyone is great at getting more matches, and even fewer people know how to find love out there. Mastering online dating certainly takes a lot of practice, but with these Tinder tips we’ll give you today, it will be much easier for you – in fact, it will be almost too easy. These tips will help you get more matches on Tinder, and take very little effort to employ. In fact, some of them are even backed by science, and have been shown to work. So, without further ado, let’s talk about the best ways to get optimize your Tinder profile.

Tip #1 – Ditch The Selfies

If there’s one mistake I see most people making on Tinder, it’s having selfies as their profile picture. Selfies are usually a warning sign that somebody is narcissistic, so it’s not a good idea to put them on your profile.

I know, it’s shallow, but hey – this is Tinder. People are going to judge you based off of your profile, NOT based off of your personality (at least at first). Now, to be fair, if you’re just trying to get laid on Tinder, then selfies are great. But, if you’re looking for something more meaningful than a “friends with benefits,” you should probably consider adding a few high-quality pictures, that show your personality. Instead of a selfie, get some professional pictures taken. Just doing this will set you apart from 99% of the other guys on Tinder, and it only costs a little bit of money. One easy way to get good pictures is to find a friend with a good camera, and take some candid shots.

Tip #2 – Flex Your Looks

It’s no secret that Tinder is one of the best dating apps on the market, and even though it’s still a little bit shallow, it’s by far the most popular dating application, even compared to Bumble. …and of course, not everyone on Tinder is solely interested in looks, but to be completely honest, most people on Tinder are going to judge you based on your appearance. That’s why it’s important to have a good set of pictures that show how attractive you are. So many people try to use Tinder to get over that oneitis they’re hung up on, or to move on after a breakup, but if you don’t have a good profile, it’s going to be really hard to do this! Personally, I recommend that you have a “fitness shot” showing your body off. No, it doesn’t have to be crude, lewd, or objectifying, but just something that shows off your hard work. Don’t take a gym selfie, though (remember rule #1!). Gym selfies are great if you just want to hook up on Tinder, but if you want something more serious, I wouldn’t recommend it. Try one of the following creative shots as a profile picture, and watch your “right swipes” explode through the roof:
  • Hanging Out at The Pool
  • Flexing at The Beach
  • Having Fun Outdoors
  • Playing Sports (Action Shots)
Simply replacing your gym selfies with more natural looking “pool” or “beach” shots will drastically increase the number of right swipes you get on Tinder.

Tip #3 – Master The Tinder Bio

Once someone takes a look at your pictures, they’re probably going to look at your bio next. This is where most guys screw up, because they make it way too boring. Instead, opt for a funny Tinder bio, instead. A clever, witty bio that makes a girl laugh is one of the easiest ways to start getting more right swipes. Here’s a few ideas for a good Tinder bio:
  • “I’m an aspiring musician, so become a groupie while you still can!”
  • “Hopefully your standards are much lower than mine are, otherwise I’m out of luck.”
  • “Rated #1 Best First Date By The Guardian, New York Times, And Forbes.”
Simply using one of these hilarious Tinder bios will easily increase your matches by 20% or more, but when you use all of these tips together, you’ll be swimming in Tinder dates.

Designing The Perfect Profile

As we said before, the most important thing on your Tinder profile is the very first picture other people see. If you don’t master this, there’s no way you’ll ever get any matches. Here are some tips for your first Tinder picture:
  • Make it Bright and Colorful
  • Flex Your Looks Immediately
  • Use Puppies to Catch Their Attention
Seriously. Just using puppies in your Tinder profile will double your matches (I’ve tested this myself). In addition to this, making your profile picture “pop” with colors is genius. In fact, Tinder’s most swiped right man said this was one of the most important parts of his online dating strategy. “You need to have a photo on a bright background – it pops for people as they’re swiping through,” he said. Stefan-Pierre Tomlin, Tinder’s most swiped right man, certainly does have looks on his side. A male model, standing at 6’2”, he’s bound to get a lot of matches – but even so, without an optimized Tinder profile that shows off your looks, it wouldn’t matter.

The Bottom Line

In summary, the first picture is the most important. Without a good first picture, people will just swipe left on you, and they won’t even bother looking at the rest. Designing a good first picture is just the first step though. In addition to this, it’s recommended that you have some fitness pictures, and use a clever, funny Tinder bio.
