Tinder can be great for some many different reasons. Yes, there are such things as Tinder nightmares and scares, but it isn't all that bad. Personally, it has actually brought me the best guy I could have ever imagined myself with. So, I have done the best I can to compile some tips and tricks to help the rest of us navigate through this hectic app.
1. Be yourself
Your profile should reflect who you truly are. That's what you want to see in their profile, so why shouldn't yours be the same way?
2. Don't be afraid to step outside your comfort zone
Take a second. Take your finger off the phone. And just look. If you have a hunch about them, and they aren't your usual type, go for it!!
3. Keep your pictures real
The puppy dog snapchat filter is getting old. That's not what they want to see. Have your pictures reflect your interests and your best qualities.
4. Know what you want before you swipe
You need to have that conversation with yourself right out of the get go. Is this for a one time thing? Is this potentially the real deal?
5. Hone in on your bio
Make sure what you want out of tinder comes across in your bio. If you potentially want something more serious, then make it about you. If you are looking for something much more temporary then keep it short, cute and clever.
6. Don't under or over swipe
There is no need for you to continually keep swiping without stopping and looking. But it also goes the other way around. You need to take some chances and give yourself options!
Tinder can be a crazy thing, but why not give it a go? I'm sure there are actually plenty of reasons why you shouldn't, but we aren't getting into that right now. Hopefully, these tips will give you some courage to give it a go. You never know who could be out there for you.
