Tinder tricks

 

Does it seem like you're constantly striking out on Tinder? There could be a reason why. Here are ten Tinder tricks to grab his attention:

Don't leave your bio blank

1. Don't leave your bio blank

Even though the bio section on Tinder is super short, it gives you an opportunity to tell your potential match about yourself, such as your hobbies and interests. While men are attracted to pictures, they are more likely to swipe left if your bio isn't filled out. Share the most important aspects about yourself in your bio, but don't go overboard.

Connect your Instagram

2. Connect your Instagram

Your Instagram can tell a unique story about who you are and what your life is like. Connecting to Instagram keeps your profile fresh and up-to-date without you having to do it yourself. Plus, it makes for a great conversation starter.

Swipe on Sundays

3. Swipe on Sundays

Statistically speaking, Sundays are the best time to browse Tinder. Why? Because most users are most active on Sunday evenings. Set some time aside during your Sunday to swipe through profiles.

Don't give out your number too soon

4. Don't give out your number too soon

Sometimes giving out your number too soon scares off potential dates. Instead, take the time to chat with matches until you feel comfortable enough giving out your number and setting up a date. The upside is that if you don't feel like meeting up, you're able to unmatch with a user. But you can't tell them to lose your number.

Your pictures should reflect your interests

5. Your pictures should reflect your interests

All the pictures you upload on Tinder should provide a talking point. If you're into dancing, then upload a picture of yourself dancing. If you are a painter, show a picture of yourself painting. Ultimately, your pictures should reflect your personality, hobbies, and interests.

Don't get discouraged by small talk

6. Don't get discouraged by small talk

Yes, small talk sucks. But if you find that the conversation is drying up, you can either send a funny GIF or like the last message that your match sent you.

Use the Super Like feature

7. Use the Super Like feature

Did you know that your chances of getting a match are three times higher with a Super Like? Plus conversations that start with a Super Like last 70% longer. Your match will definitely appreciate that you sent them a Super Like!

Show a pop of color in your photos

8. Show a pop of color in your photos

Most Tinder users wear neutral colors in their photos, such as black, white, navy, and gray. If you really want to stand out from the crowd, then you should wear something colorful that pops.

Upload lots of photos

9. Upload lots of photos

It's a proven fact that profiles with lots of pictures get more matches. You should upload a variety of different pictures to your profile, including body shots and close-ups so that potential matches really get a sense of who you are. Avoid pictures with other people in them, which can be confusing.

Add your job and education to your profile

10. Add your job and education to your profile

Adding your job and education to your Tinder profile will increase your matches. This is because potential matches will understand you better and those matches in similar fields or with similar educational backgrounds will be more likely to reach out to you.

Happy Swiping!

When it comes to Tinder, making good use of the bio section and uploading tons of photos is guaranteed to result in more matches. Remember that landing a date takes time and dedication. If you think something about your profile isn't working, don't be afraid to switch it up.
