How to Find Success with Tinder Dating


Dating in the modern age can be a daunting prospect. The truth is you most likely won’t find your future partner at the local bar and you should invest your time and energy elsewhere. Tinder makes it a lot easier and more convenient, but even this seem like navigating a field of landmines. Here’s how to find success with Tinder dating.

You Must Have a Bio

While they say pictures can speak a thousand words, having a bio is very important so that any potential matches can get a feel for you. Mention notable things about yourself such as what you do for work, what you’re passionate about, or what you do in your free time.

Do Connect Your Instagram

Connecting your Instagram to your Tinder profile will actually increase your chances of getting matches. In this way, potential matches will be able to see more of your life likely making them more interested in getting to know you.

Swipe on a Sunday Evening

Studies have shown that Tinder users are typically most active on the app on a Sunday evening so you should follow suit and swipe away while enjoying a relaxing Sunday evening. However, there really is no wrong time to swipe!

The Opening Line

Once you’ve matched with someone, don’t go for a copy and paste opening line as this will likely feel forced and unnatural. Instead mention something that piqued your interest in their profile – do they enjoy playing bingo Australia, where that picture was taken, the name of their dog, or where they went to school.

Don’t Rush Exchanging Numbers

While some may like to exchange numbers almost immediately, we suggest chatting on the app until you’re interested in meeting your Tinder match. If the conversation on the app comes to a natural end, it will be a lot easier to unmatch them than asking them to delete your number!

Don’t Be Put Off by Small Talk

If the conversation seems to be drying up, try sending a link to an article which you think your match may find interesting or send a funny GIF. Small talk may seem pointless, but may lead to more serious conversations. Don’t be put off by it as there will typically be lulls in the conversation.

Super Likes Really Work

Studies have shown that your chances of getting a match are 3 times higher if you make use of Super Like and conversations that started in this way typically last 70% longer. Receiving a Super Like is incredibly flattering to receive and if you send one the recipient will likely feel the same.

The More Pictures the Better

While you may have that one picture that is your absolute favourite and which is displayed on all of your social media, the truth is that the more pictures you have, the better your chances of getting quality matches. You can add photos directly from your camera roll, so editing your Tinder profile is easy!
