When you decide to set up a Tinder account, you might be discouraged at first if you’re not getting any matches or dates. If you’re not familiar with the app, it allows you to set up a profile for yourself, and if you and another person “like” each other, then you match and can chat from there.
The only way to get to talk to someone is to match with them, so you need to succeed in getting matches to get dates. One of the most important parts of any Tinder profile is the pictures.
The pictures are the first thing displayed, and are often what most people make their decisions on. If someone sees an account with no pictures, they probably won’t like them because they have no idea what the individual looks like.
When uploading pictures, put in more than one and be sure there’s at least one of you by yourself, so nobody confuses you for someone else in a group picture. Another important aspect of Tinder is your bio.
You can write out a bio with some basic information about you that you’d like your potential matches to know. Here, you should put some basic interests and maybe some further contact information if you want, like a Snapchat username or an Instagram handle.
This helps other users know that you’re not a robot, and if you have mutual interests, it can be a good talking point. If you want to get decent results for other users to sort through, you should be sure that your settings are adjusted accordingly.
Tinder starts with some default settings, but you can change them to account for your own wants and needs. For example, if you’re only interested in seeing people close by, you can adjust the distance setting to only include people in a certain radius.
You can also change who you want to be shown to you in terms of sexuality, as well as age range. You should also be sure that your information is entered accurately. This includes things like your general location, gender, age, and name.
If you match with someone and have to tell them that your information is wrong, it can immediately create an air of distrust around the conversation. It’s almost like you lied to them, having an account with a different age or location.
