Dating can be a difficult thing for some. Now with various dating apps available on the Internet, the pressure of dating has increased resulting in failed attempts to woo the person you matched with.
With only a few pictures to choose from your thousand plus selfies and a limited word count to introduce yourself, the dating world through the Internet can be a challenge especially for someone who hasn’t been in the dating game for long. You need to pick the right profile picture and know what to write in your bio. And we haven’t even gotten to the part of what to reply to your match, so you don’t make a fool out of yourself.
Worry not, as we have some tips for you to create the perfect Tinder profile which hopefully can help you with your dating life.
Step 1: Pick a photo with your best smile
The first step in setting up your profile is obviously choosing a picture as your display. Choose at least three that features your best smile to give out a friendly approachable look. Skip those duck face and Blue Steel pose for later; you want pictures that showcase those beautiful pearly white teeth. And please, for the love of God, no shirtless picture. Even if you have a hot body, you don’t want your first impression to appear as someone who is narcissistic and self-absorbed. Just put on some clothes, a nice pair of jeans, and smile for the camera.
Step 2: Be witty in your bio
Next, you MUST write something in your bio. A lot of people leave this part blank and rely solely on pictures, which is wrong. A bio is important to describe who you are as a person so that people will know what they’re getting into when they’re swiping right. This is the part where you get creative. You don’t have to be formal in your bio. Instead, be witty and add a fun fact of yourself. But don’t go overboard with it though. You want to keep some details for your conversation later when you match.
Step 3: Initiate the conversation
After you’ve matched, the next move is to initiate the conversation. Be mindful of how you start it, though, because you don’t want to be too strong with your introduction scaring your potential lover away. Nor do you want to be timid and give out a dull “hi”. Be creative with your approach. Engage them by saying something that shows you actually took the time to read their bio and view their pictures. At the end of the day, don’t overthink it and be friendly and respectful to each other.
