When single, I never attempted Tinder. After hearing the horror stories of men just swiping for a hook up, I decided to meet eligible bachelors on Match, OKCupid, and POF instead. But many singles believe that it’s all the same. Just like you can meet a man that’s ready and willing to commit on EHarmony one “Hot” on Tinder can lead to an “I do.”
You see, Tinder boasts to making 10 million daily matches. If that leads to a night of sex or a lifetime of love is still up for discussion. What I can tell you is how to get a swipe from that hottie with the abs, or any kind of man that catches your eye. How? By sharing the results of Tinder’s social experiment.
Be Super Active
To get love from Tinder you must log on. Often! 57 percent of Tinder users log on 7 times a day. The more you’re on the more attention you will receive.
Expand Your Search
If you’re tired of seeing the same old faces on Tinder, expand your location when searching for matches. My Boo did so when meeting me on POF. If he would have stuck to Queens or Long Island, I would have never popped up. The love between a Long Island man and a Manhattanite may have never been.
Know Your Audience
Tinder is perfect for 20-something women seeking 20-something men. Or 30 somethings that like younger men. That’s because 53 percent of Tinder users are young. Yup. The majority of Tinder users are between the ages of 18-24. And now you know what you’re getting.
Write a Bio – Seriously!
But not too long. Tinder is all about the visuals, but users who are interested in more than physicality will appreciate the effort.
Post Great Photos
Speaking of photos, make sure the 6 photos that you use on your Tinder profile are stellar. Avoid group photos (who are you in the bunch?!) and please use great lighting. A warm smile won’t hurt either.
It’s 2014, gals, and there’s no need to be shy when dating online. That includes Tinder. The results showed that when women made the first move they received better results. They also lost matches when they didn’t respond at all. It makes sense. We are choosing what is best for us. Hopefully, you know what you like, want and need. In other words, be self-first.
