How to Make Yourself Match Worthy

Whether you like it or not dating apps have become a big part of how people meet each other. With 26 million matches a day on tinder alone single people today might as well embrace it. Whether you are on Tinder, Bumble, or OkCupid and are looking for a relationship, a hookup or just someone to talk to, dating apps are becoming the place to do it.

If you’re new to online dating or you just want to get more matches, here are some ways to amp up your profile.

  1. Have good pictures. This is the most important thing when creating a dating profile. Most people judge potential matches by their first photo. Your photo needs to be of your face, not of your car, or your dog, or the back of your head and it shouldn’t be with a bunch of people we are matching you, not your friends. It also should have more than one picture, and these extra photos might be a good opportunity to include those pics with your friends.
  2. Have an interesting bio. Not too long not too short. Don’t put your whole life story, but also don’t leave it blank. Write at least a quote or funny line. The bio is a great way to show your personality so that people can get a sense of you. Don’t make yourself look desperate by adding your Snapchat, Instagram or Twitter. this is not the time or the place to gain followers.
  3. Don’t swipe right on everybody. If you swipe right (meaning you are interested in them) on every person, then you will probably end up with a lot of people you don’t actually want to talk to. What’s the point in that.
  4. Don’t send explicit messages. Especially in a first message, we appreciate that you want to let people know your intentions from the get-go. But there are polite ways to go about that. Plus even if the person you matched wants the same thing, odds are they won’t message you back if you are being gross. And then no one is happy. Feel free to block or report someone if they are doing this.
  5. Don’t take it too seriously. Tinder can be fun and entertaining. Just be yourself and at least get some nice conversations out of it. Don’t let anyone judge you for having a dating app. If they don’t want one that’s fine, but don’t let other people stop you from doing your thing Have fun and get swiping!
