If you haven’t been getting matches even if you’ve been putting effort into marketing yourself on the dating platform, then it’s safe to assume that you will need to improve your profile. The all-too-common case of Tinderprofile Boringitis is a modern ailment that affects millions of users on the platform around the world.
After a while, your cookie-cutter profile is bound to get subpar results every time if you aren’t attentive towards what’s lacking. Sure, it might seem like a good idea to use a group shot and pickup line combination at first, but the reality is that it won’t work as well as you’d like it to.
Pushing someone out of their comfort zone and straight into your DMs with an irresistible force is both an art and science that heavily relies on the impact of your profile. As complex as it may seem, creating a Tinder profile that can make anyone go out of their way to stop, read more about you, and swipe right is actually a simple task that entails paying attention to the finer points of your persona.
With the right tips and tricks in mind and a few profile tweaks, you can easily enhance your Tinder profile without breaking a sweat or paying much more than you should. If you’re looking to make your profile more “swipe-worthy” and an effective tool for finding your soulmate or making new friends, here are three tips that you should take note of:
1. You can choose not to be boring
The most tragic, yet common story that concerns the Tinder platform has much to do with the mere existence of users whose profiles are utterly boring to the point that they “can’t do anything about it.” As convenient as it may be to go for the excuse that your profile is boring by nature, the truth about having a boring Tinder personality is that it’s only boring if you let it be as such.
Instead of moping and acting hopeless over the fact that people aren’t matching you, try to approach the issue from a realistic point of view by taking the efforts not to make it boring. After all, you’ll only be seen the way you wish yourself to be!
2. Choose photos that are unique
Let’s face it: a selfie, poor-quality photo, outdated shot, or group photo in the opening shot slot won’t help if you’re looking to match with more people. Instead of going for a plain set of pictures, pick a few photos that are much better in quality, and represent the more unique and captivating parts of your personality.
Got a photo with your dog? Go for it! Do you have a shot from your latest fundraiser that shows you in action? People love a generous helper! Is there a picture of you painting or playing the guitar? If you have any photos that best represent who you are but also leave a bit of mystery that builds to intrigue, then feel free to fill up your profile with them!
3. Go the extra mile with your bio
Your bio is a follow-up to the list of chosen photos that gives a more well-rounded idea of who you truly are as a person. This is especially applicable when you list down a few facts that make it easier for potential matches to swipe right. Instead of putting bits of basic text like “5’10,” “Sophomore,” and “Wanderlust” on your Tinder profile’s bio, put a few fun facts, such as your likes and dislikes, and why you’re on the platform in the first place!
WHAT SHOULD YOUR PROFILE PHOTO BE?
We’ve got neuroscience to back us up on this. Last year, scientists at ST&T Research hooked people up to eye trackers and brain scanners, all while they used Tinder, and their findings have confirmed what we’re telling you.
The brain doesn’t like to be confused, so the most attractive profile photo is:
- A clean headshot, preferably showing the upper third of your body.
- A high-quality photo, with a clear contrast between you and the background.
- A photo of you alone.
- A photo without distracting “noise” in the background.
- A photo where your face is clearly shown (NO SUNGLASSES!)
Making a Tinder profile that works in your favor is all about paying attention to the details that help make it into what other users exactly perceive it as. Before you give up on Tinder entirely during a bad day on the platform, give the tips in this article a try so that you can get better results!
