We've already gone through what not to do with your Tinder profile - but we have yet to answer another important question. What should you have on your Tinder profile? Is there some bulletproof secret that will have all the girls swiping right on you? Unfortunately I can't call them bulletproof, but I do have some tips that would definitely encourage me to swipe right and even message you first wow, right? If you don't already have a picture of the family pet in your Tinder bio, you clearly haven't been on the internet for the last 10 years.
Chicks love cute animals. While this isn't universal, every girl I'm friends with will swipe right for the sake of a kitten or adorable dog. Even I use this to attract guys! One of my pictures is of the family cat - who doesn't even live in the same city as me.
Animals are a great conversation starter. You would be amazed or maybe not by how many first messages are along the lines of "that cat is so adorable".
For girls who have a cat picture, this can weed out some bad eggs as well. Those guys who use 'pussy cat' for some sort of play on words? They're probably not worth responding to. Get creative - if there's a dog involved, you could always say that you're taking your dog to a local park for a walk, and invite her along Let me just say that some things are too odd.
What I mean here is that it should be intriguing enough that someone might swipe right just to hear the story behind it, but not be so weird that it earns an immediate swipe left. Maybe if you dressed like this at one point?
I've gotten a guy dressed up in jean short shorts and a crop top, with a few other accessories. Since he was dressed as your typical cisgender dude in the rest of his pictures, it led me to wonder what the occasion was.
That picture earned a swipe right from me and a first message complimenting him on his outfit although he never responded, sigh. My friend once got a guy who had a picture of him with someone in a full Spiderman bodysuit clinging to him. She actually went on a date with the guy and learned that apparently, it was his ex-girlfriend who had shown up at his prom.
I'm not entirely clear on why she showed up in a Spiderman costume, but from what my friend could tell they were on decent terms It makes for an interesting story in any case. A bio that is actually filled out. This might just be me, but even if I'm only looking for someone to hook up with I want to know we have something in common.
Whether that's a love for adventure or a love for Netflix, I want to know before I swipe right. I'll admit that I give some people the benefit of the doubt - but if you have too few pictures and no bio, byeeee. A lot of great conversations have started because I've commented on something in a match's bio. Tell me you're a nerd if you are. If you're all about hiking, tell me that. Just give me something, some tidbit about your life that could lead me to swipe right and give me a conversation starter.
Pictures of you doing fun stuff! I am soooo guilty of not doing this, mainly because I don't do fun stuff. I only have selfies and a cat picture on my Tinder bio.
But if you happen to be more adventurous than me, post those pics! I'm so much more likely to start a conversation with someone who has pictures from that time they went skydiving or backpacked Germany. Even if you've only been in the area around where you live, put up some pictures of when you went hiking or to the lake with the fam. You're instantly 10 times more interesting to me if you have something other than selfies and pictures of your truck on your bio.
Just make sure to pass on the hunting pictures. Also, don't worry if your active pictures were taken at a bad angle or you don't exactly look your best. No one can look great in every picture, it's just not possible, and some people never look good in pictures taken of them me included. Post a few great selfies so that I know how attractive you really are, not that I would care about the double chin you had while lying down at the beach anyways.
Just make me laugh. If you can make me laugh or wonder about you, you've got me. There are countless ways you can make someone laugh with something in your bio, but make sure you keep one thing in mind: Put something that reflects who you are. Because even if hundreds of women swipe right on you, if they're not the right type of women what have you really gotten?
Maybe someone to sleep with, but in my opinion it's a lot better to sleep with someone you can actually have a conversation with as well. Someone you can get along with.
And even if you're not looking for more than a casual hookup, even that can be more meaningful if you have some common interests and go on a top-notch date first. People who don't agree with your brand of humor can freely swipe left, and you'll both be better for it.
