Wondering how to get your tinder game strong? Let’s get those swipes right.
Aren’t we all tired of swiping right and still watching Netflix without any chill? Wondering what opening lines to use? Are those pictures getting you any dates?
Is that bio too humorous or too serious? Well, pull up your socks and get ready cause Nutkhatt is here to the rescue.
Let’s turn those left swipes into right.
1. THE PHOTOGRAPHS.
Show your smile. The best key to impressing anyone is to flaunt your smile. They won’t fall for your pout or your abs, humans are most attracted to a genuine smile.
Only selfies and mirror pictures? Really not a great option. Put at least one group photo showing what good times you and your guys have together. You having a social life is a validation for your potential match to swipe right on you!
SHIRTLESS PHOTOS. Abs much? Noooo.
NOO. A big NO. Don’t show them you’re too self-absorbed. Don’t flaunt it. Congratulations on you abs, but take it slow mate.
PICTURES WITH THE OPPOSITE SEX
It’s a huge turn-off to see all the pictures with the opposite sex, you have a lot of friends, cool. Save those pictures for the time your match inevitably stalks
you on other social networking platforms.
2. THE BIO. Like obviouslyyy
ADD A PINCH OF HUMOUR.
Let’s not be too mainstream, give the something they’ll have to read twice. Play a little with your bio like this man did:
“Married. A couple of kids. Just looking for some side action. OK, kidding. Single. Looking for someone who would shoplift with me.”
Contradict your profile and create suspense. Suspense drives every human being. Try something like:
“not as much of a douchebag as my flexing pictures may suggest.”
Or tell them who you are IRL and ask them to keep a secret,
“I don’t know who that nerd is in all those photographs, but I’m actually Jay-Z. Don’t tell Bey I’m here.”
KEEP IT SHORT!
We do not want the bio to be too long, just avoid writing too much about yourself.
Let them be curious enough about you.
WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
Research suggests that bios describing what they’re looking for are way more successful. Just mention something you would want your match to have.
Tell them you like someone who loves to have pizza. Tell them you like dog lovers. Anything, just let them know.
Not being a grammar nazi, but guys, it’s NOT cute when you use ‘lyf‘ for life. Just try and not make grammatical errors in the bio.
3. THE CONVERSATION
THE FIRST MESSAGE.
The most important phase is the opening line. Researchers say that sending a GIF instead of a text increases your chances of getting a response.
Although, if you still feel like texting instead of sending a GIF, say something that shows you took the time to read their bio and look at their profile photos.
*Do not standardise your opening line – everyone is different.*
Give some grace time for double texts. Let them say what they want to without cutting them off in between.
Also, it can be possible that your match has been busy lately and didn’t check the account. Just keep calm.
A few bummers again:
- No shirtless photographs.
- Don’t brag about yourself.
- Keep it short and simple. Seriously guys.
