Did you know that there are an estimated 50 million active Tinder users worldwide? Tinder is one of the most popular dating apps out there. If you are wondering how to get more matches on Tinder, the answer lies in that it is all about first impressions. Why? Because users have no other way to judge you other than by your photos and the small amount of information you provide in your bio. As superficial as it sounds, you need to look good and “sound” good. So, let’s get to work and nail down how to get more matches on Tinder.
1. Post Amazing Photos
The first and most important aspect here will be your photos. The photos you choose to post will be crucial in determining a left or right swipe. How do I know this? Because I own a vagina. Hope you keep reading, trust what I am saying and don’t forget that important fact.
With respect to your photos, here is some good advice on how to get more matches on Tinder:
Only post high-quality photos. They should be clear and not leave the viewer asking any questions.
Smile. Say cheese, whatever, just make sure you are smiling naturally.
If you have a good body, show it off, but appropriately. No shirtless photos unless you are at the beach, and please, not too many of these. Go overboard on these types of photos and the thought that is going to cross her mind is “what a dick.”
Engage a professional to take pictures of you. Sites like Snappr offer photo shoots for $59 and you can book a professional photographer in 2 minutes online.
2. Create an Awesome Bio
Your bio is going to lend a ‘voice” to the fabulous photos you post. In order to get more matches on Tinder, your bio should be short, pack a punch and say a lot about you, but with very few words. I know, not easy. Let’s go over some important points that hopefully will pave the way for you to create a truly incredible bio. First, you need to be honest about what you are looking for and the type of woman you want to attract. Be genuine. If you are looking for no strings attached encounters, let your profile reflect that, but remember, being sleazy sucks. No one likes it, not even if they are looking for something very casual too. Summary: You can be flirtatious but keep it clean. If you are looking for your life partner, then your bio should be more serious-minded, but in no way does this mean it cannot be humorous.
3. Optimize Your Settings for Matches
Sometimes it is necessary to go outside the box to get more matches. Here are a couple of ideas on how to get more matches on Tinder: 1) search a wider geographical area for matches; and, 2) expand your preferred age range.
If your dating profile is “constipated” and nothing is happening, AND you are still wondering how to get more matches on Tinder, sometimes it is as simple as you need a “do-over. This means you will take down all your pictures and repost new ones (the second time around -- if you did not do so the first time -- get advice on the pictures you are thinking of posting from people you trust and/or consider using the services of a website like Photofeeler to ensure you are posting the best photos possible). For the bio, take some time and put in even MORE effort into creating one that exactly conveys the message you are trying to get across.
Remember, even though there are millions of Tinder users, there is only one you. Showcase your amazing personality and what you have to offer via your photos and bio.
