10 TIPS FOR CREATING AN EYE-CATCHING TINDER PROFILE

The following essay is the result of years of experience in the crazy world of dating apps 🙂
This article has been written by two experienced dating-apps-users, so we can confidently say that these tips apply to men and women…whatever you are looking for!

1 TAKE THE TIME TO SHOOT A GOOD HEADSHOT OF YOURSELF, BUT NOT IN A STUDIO.
We all want genuine pictures! Studio pictures with professional lighting are not the best because they look fake, as well as likely being retouched. At the same time, we want to clearly see the look and style of our potential match, so play the game properly and have a genuine image taken.

2 REPRESENT THE LIFESTYLE YOU WANT.
They say that when you prepare for a job interview, you must dress for the job you want, not for the job you have. We’d give the same advice for getting a date. If you are aiming for a romantic dinner, dress properly and get a picture of yourself in a nice restaurant. If you prefer informal things, keep it casual and use a picture where you are enjoying yourself in a pub. If you are keen to travel the world, choose pictures of yourself on holiday! What you will get depends on who you are, so aim for the lifestyle you want.

3 SMILE IN AT LEAST ONE PICTURE, PREFERABLY IN AT LEAST TWO!
Even if you don’t like smiling, remember that smiling attracts people. Smiles are good sellers. Your future partner will want to make you smile, so show them what they will receive in the long-term! Plus, it’s scientifically proven that smiling activates trust 😉

4 GO EASY WITH SEXY/TOPLESS PICTURES.
One might be appreciated but also, one is more than enough. Even if you are only looking for fun, nobody wants to have sex with a hyper narcissist!

5 AVOID SNAPCHAT ANIMALS, FILTERS, CARNIVAL, FANCY DRESSES.
We are adults, you can be ironic in other ways.

Don’t forget the importance of your caption – this really matters!

6 IF YOU WRITE YOUR HEIGHT, DON’T ADD “IF IT MATTERS” OR A SIMILAR EXCUSE.
You don’t need to justify yourself.

7 WRITE WHAT YOU LIKE, NOT WHAT YOU HATE. This sounds obvious to us, but a lot of people make a list of “I hate” or “don’t”. Ouch!

8 WRITE A DESCRIPTION, NOT A LIST.
Demonstrate that you can articulate your thoughts and desires, this is not a shopping list.

9 BE SWEET. BE CHEEKY. BE IRONIC OR FUN…BE YOURSELF! BUT IN A FEW LINES.
We don’t have time for the story of your life here: D

10 BE HONEST AND MENTION YOUR PACKAGE.
If you have kids or a major commitment, be honest and upfront about it. No one likes a surprise like that after a romantic dinner 🙂
