Secrets Tips for a Perfect Tinder Profile

perfect Tinder profile

How to get more likes? Reduce selfies, learn to tell yourself better, and try to highlight your strengths without hiding the flaws.

For those looking for love or even just a pleasant distraction, Tinder is still the go-to app. Compared to the days when you had to settle for blind dates and accidental lightning strikes, they give you much more opportunities, but swipes and matches can put you under pressure. When things go well they can boost self-esteem, when they go less well they can bury it. Yet a touch-up to the profile might be enough to return to feeling more appreciated or to chase away the feeling of attracting only the wrong people. Here are some tips on how to take care of photos and bio.

For those looking for love or even just a pleasant distraction, Tinder is still the go-to app. Compared to the days when you had to settle for blind dates and accidental lightning strikes, they give you much more opportunities, but swipes and matches can put you under pressure. When things go well they can boost self-esteem, when they go less well they can bury it. Yet a touch-up to the profile might be enough to return to feeling more appreciated or to chase away the feeling of attracting only the wrong people. Here are some tips on how to take care of photos and bio.

Choose the photo

You might think it’s unfair to judge the book by its cover, but that’s how dating apps work. It does not mean that we have all become narcissistic and superficial – or if we have become it is not all the fault of technology – nor that to please others you have to be perfect. After all, every context has the right strategy. It is true that we must above all educate the algorithm, but choosing the most suitable photos helps.

Selfie, yes or no?

Remove those necessary to get the prestigious blue checkers, proving that you are not catfish or serial scammers, selfies have strengths and weaknesses. On the one hand, they are very convenient because they avoid the passport photo effect of posing with the self-timer and allow you to open a profile without thinking too much, on the other hand, they can be less flattering than a photo taken by someone else, preferably when we don’t notice it. So asking a friend to help you find the right photo or take a new one might be a better idea. You can take a look together at the photos taken on vacation, or even in the backyard. Many people are more beautiful in natural light, warmer and more generous than neon and indoor lights, or in general when they are happy and relaxed.

Enhance the merits, without glossing over the defects

The photos do not necessarily have to be full-length, you can choose what to highlight based on your strengths. For some people it is the look, for others the smile, for others, it may be the line of the shoulders, the height, or the elegance of the hands. Another reason to not limit yourself to selfies is the angles – DIY, even with the stick that allows you to keep the neck straighter, has its limits. As we have mentioned, rigid or too unnatural poses should be avoided, as well as exaggerating with filters and retouching. Ultimately the goal is to meet and the last thing you want to hear is “you looked better on Tinder”.

Be recognized

Group photos can create more than one misunderstanding. One in five is fine, if you are extroverted and love social life, it could be a way of emphasizing it. Do not forget, however, that the protagonists are you. Even for the shy ones, if there is a right time to put yourself in the spotlight, this is it. Even sunglasses, hats, and everything that hides the face should be dosed with great care: if they are in a photo you pass, in all of them it is too much.

Tell a story

Maybe you dream of meeting someone who gets carried away to concerts at the last minute, or you have a huge passion for the sport. Or you are a lover of home evenings and ask for nothing better from life than someone to cook with and curl up on the sofa. Say it (also) with a photo: it is true that there are tags for any interest, but to highlight the personality there is nothing better than being seen in your natural habitat. It also becomes a starting point for conversation for those who decide to write to you.

The bio dilemma

White page syndrome? Don’t worry, we’ve all been there. Proving that you can be brilliant in a handful of words is not easy and can put even those who usually have a joke ready in a crisis. However, it is not said that you have to make the originals at all costs: the important thing is to be yourself.

When in doubt, keep it simple

Maybe you don’t have the poetic vein, but on the other hand, you can count on a great practical sense. So why not follow your inclinations? You can choose to use the bio as a natural extension of the interests section and talk about what you like or what you are looking for, or give some clues about yourself using your MBTI (as Koreans do) or your job as a cue. The characters available are not many, so focus on what you think reflects you the most. Joking is okay, but only if it comes naturally to you.

Avoid clichés

We have said that it is not necessary to try too hard to be original, but not too little either. Clichés and clichés tend to be ineffective because dating apps are like a very crowded room. Better to tell an anecdote, or add some more details that can deepen common interests (many people like cinema, but what are your favorite films?). Just don’t be too general or too telegraphic.

Borrow

Using quotes borrowed from a song, movie or book isn’t wrong, just don’t overdo it. Take care to quote the author and be careful not to fish from the sites that collect aphorisms in search of the catchphrase. Not only are they sometimes attributed to the wrong person, but there’s no point in citing Murakami to cheer you up if the truth is that you’ve fallen asleep three times trying to read Norwegian Wood.

Watch out for spelling

Typos really do happen to everyone, but if you go too fast and never re-read anything you could end up giving an impression of slovenliness or cosmic laziness. Two flaws that may be overlooked when looking for company for the evening, less so when looking for something more stable.

Anthem, pros, and cons.

The possibility of adding a song to the profile is interesting because the passions unite and the music touches very deep chords. Before choosing whether to take advantage of it, evaluate how important it is for you to share the same tastes or if you prefer not to alienate potential matches in Music Mode or the exploration mode for music lovers. And to change it following your vibe of the moment.
