Do you wanna know how does Tinder work?

…So that you can get potentially more Tinder Dates.

Tinder’s algorithm is a secret. Duh. But there are things they have told the world about it, that makes it easier to understand a little bit about how Tinder works. It also gives some clues to some big no-nos if you want to stay on top of your Tinder game.

It may seem like online dating is a numbers game, or a game of chance. It’s all serendipity. Only, it’s not. There’s an algorithm. And you need to crack it.

Considering that you know how Tinder work, we will teach you how to use Tinder effectively by optimizing your profile for the algorithm. But, for the people who don’t have any Idea

Tinder is a match-making dating app which allows people (its users) to left or right swipe on the profiles facilitated to them by the Tinder. Where right swipe means you’re interested in the person and left swipe means the opposite.

How Tinder Works & How to Use it: 1. Your Profile is Everything

You need a good profile on Tinder. Why? Because the basis of the algorithm is how many people like your profile.

That’s to say: how many people swipe right on you.

When you first join Tinder, your profile gets a boost. It’s shown to a lot of people swiping that day. This way, you get a chance to meet people and Tinder get a chance to determine your rating on their system.

So before you start, make sure you have a bunch of great photos, showing off you and your life and a fun bio to go with them. Blurry photos, a ton of selfies, photos of things that are not you, etc. will make people swipe left by default.

People want to get a glimpse of who you are and the life you lead through looking at your photos.

Your profile has to be real good to make Tinder work for you. Therefore, I highly recommend you reading my article where I pointed out 12 common Tinder profile mistakes.

Likewise, a boring bio, or no bio at all, will lead to people swiping left. Think of it this way: when swiping right people take a gamble.

They want as much info as possible to support their decision to swipe right.

If you have no bio, it shows you don’t really care enough to write one. It also gives them less info to go on.

Using Bio on Tinder effectively boosts your matches, so don’t miss out on it.

If you want people to swipe right, have a good amount of great photos and write a witty bio. It only needs to be a sentence, or three, but it needs to pique people’s interest. We have other articles on here about how to write a great bio.

2. Limited Right-Swiping

If you swipe 2,000 times in an hour, you’ll get banned. Tinder will write you off as a bot.

On the other hand, if you never swipe, you’ll be put in the back of the queue. Your profile won’t be shown to people, as it’ll look like you’re inactive, so having people swipe on you, is just a waste of their time.

If you want to be seen on Tinder, pick up your phone once, or twice, a day, and spend 5-15 minutes swiping.

3. Always Talk with Your Match

If you match with someone and don’t message them, it shows that either you’re a bot, or you just don’t care when you get matched.

So why would Tinder waste time matching you?

They want happy customers. They want people who pick up their phone and write a message once they’ve been matched.

Sure, we all make mistakes sometimes. We swipe right by mistake. Or maybe we were just a bit too keen to swipe one day and now that we have a few different people to talk to, that one person doesn’t seem so interesting anymore.

Fine. But try to talk to the majority of the people you swipe right on and get matched with, or your ratings will start to go down in the Tinder algorithm.

3. When You Swipe

If you swipe right on everyone, Tinder will think you have no standards. You don’t care who you’re matched with. So you’ll end up in the back of the queue. Especially with people who are popular.

Avoid using Tinder profile swipes gadgets.

Be selective. Not so selective you miss out on fun, but selective enough that you know that you swiped right because you REALLY wanted to meet that person, not because you were bored at work.

4. Messages That Don’t Work on Tinder

If everyone unmatches you after one message, or simply don’t reply…you seriously need to rethink your first message strategy. Not least, because Tinder will probably pick up on your appalling response rate.

Starting by telling someone they’re hot, or gorgeous…is usually not a good idea. It’s too much, too soon as a stand-stand-alone statement.

You can, on the other hand, say something like “Hello gorgeous, you seem like quite the adventurer, Morocco on camelback, huh?! :)”

A simple “hey,” or “how’s it going,” is too simple. As if you care, if that’s all you have to say! Many people don’t reply. Commenting on something in their profile, making a joke, or sending a funny GIF, is a much better strategy. Here is how you should start conversation on Tinder.

Based on SimpleTexting survey, humourous is the most effective.

Inside Scoop: 10 Fist Tinder Messages Destined to Seal the Deal.

5. How Tinder Matches You?

When you first upload your profile and it’s showcased to a gazillion people, Tinder work by noting who swipes right and who doesn’t.

If lots of people swipe right, it means you rise in a ranking from 1-10.

If lots of people who are ranked high swipe right, it also means you rise in the ranking.

The people who are ranked as 10s are probably pretty selective in who they swipe right on, because they know they have choice.

Tinder will also note what people swipe right the most — those who are a 10, or those who are a 5, etc.

All this will help give you, your ranking. Once your ranking is established, you’ll most likely be paired with people of the same ranking.

So now you understand how important it is to create a great profile before you start swiping. If you upload two shady photos and no bio, you might end up at the bottom of a pile. Quite literally.

That’s not to say Tinder follows this religiously. They probably match you with all sorts of people. They have to, or they’d be discriminating. If you’ve ever used Tinder you’ve noticed how you get both the most absurdly good looking people and people hiding under massive shades on blurry photos in your feed. The point is, they will match you with a certain type of ranking more often than not and your profile will be more, or less, visible depending on various things in their algorithm.

6. Unknown Factors

No one knows Tinder’s algorithm who doesn’t work there. Maybe it’s affected by your education, profession, etc. as well as the above mentioned factors. I can’t tell you that.

The only thing I can tell you is to create a profile filled with good, varied, pictures of yourself, a short interesting, or witty, bio and recommend you use Tinder a few times a week to ensure it shows you’re still active. Oh, and message people you match with.

7. Paid Boosts

If you realize you’ve been using Tinder in ways that don’t serve you, like swiping right on everyone and uploading crap photos and no bio…it might be time for a paid boost.

The algorithm constantly measures what’s going on. So if you want to show you’re active again and have a great profile…pay for a boost if you want things to change faster.

8. Use Super Likes

Apparently people who get super liked are three times as likely to swipe right on you. If nothing else, chances are they’ll stop long enough to read your profile. This can help you get more right swipes and help you increase your chances.


Again, don’t try to super like everyone. I’m sure Tinder’s algorithm won’t like that either…

Inside Scoop: How to Super-Like on Tinder

See, I promised you it wasn’t rocket science!

All in all, Tinder has developed an algorithm to try to find people who are the most likely to swipe right on each other.

Of course they mix it up, but to make sure you get great matches, the best thing you can do is create a great profile. And then make sure to swipe with caution and talk to the people you match with.S

Do you want your first tinder date to go well? I bet you do! Hence I’ll walk you through 10 amazing first tinder date ideas, so that you don’t mess it up!

Credit: Pexels

We all use Tinder differently — some are looking for hookups, others for casual dating, yet others for relationships. Most end up somewhere in-between, because they don’t know what will happen when they meet someone.

Maybe it turns out to be the kind of person they want to hook up with, maybe it turns out to be the kind of person they want a relationship with.

And that’s just the thing: you don’t know what will happen when you meet someone. That’s why first dates can feel like a hassle.

An awkward hassle.

They don’t have to be. Not if you come up with good first date ideas.

First of all, let’s lay down the ground rules for good and bad dates.

  • You must have an exit plan.
  • You Better avoid extreme situations.
  • Make sure you have the ability to get to know each other.
  • Do something that brings you natural topics for conversation.

Having an exit plan means you don’t tie yourself into a five-hour tinder date before you know you want to be on one. That means you avoid dates that would take five hours.

You can also say something like “I might meet up with some friends later, we haven’t decided yet.” Voila, there’s your exit plan for first tinder date.

That doesn’t mean you can’t have a five hour date — it just means you only commit to 30-60 minutes. If the date goes well, you can just do something else later.

Meeting at a place like Starbucks, unless it’s one that’s filled with strange people, leave you very few conversation openers. You want to be at a place, or doing something, that lead to natural topics for conversation.

However, you might be surprised by the fact that Starbucks is among the most popular places for first date.

Extreme situations can be fun, and adrenaline kicks actually make people fall in love more easily, but…do you really want to be in an extreme situation with a person you don’t know?

You don’t know how they’ll react, so probably not.

Ever tried meeting someone for the first time in a very loud, very busy bar? You don’t hear what they’re saying, you’re distracted by everything happening around you and chances are you’ll end up more frustrated than attracted/in love.

That said, lets look at…

10 Tinder Date Ideas For Amazing Experience: 1. Meeting at Home — Nah!

Pressure, much? You don’t know the person. They don’t know you. And trust us when we say that online chemistry doesn’t always translate. Not even if you’ve spoken over the phone, or done video chatting, before meeting.

Even if you’re looking to hook up with them, meet somewhere else first. You can always go home, once you’ve established that you’re attracted to their real life persona.

Billiards, Ping-Pong, Mini-Golf, Bowling, etc. — Hell, Yeah!

Granted neither one of you are prone to hit people with golf clubs/bowling balls, or feel totally humiliated by how bad you are at pool, playing a game together can relieve a lot of tension. Granted neither is a bad loser, either.

You don’t need to be good at a game to have fun, you just need to enjoy it. In fact, if you are terrible, you have something to laugh about.

Inside Scoop: 5 Common Tinder Profile Mistakes and How to Fix Them.

2. Going to the Movies – Just Don’t!

Yes, you may both LOVE film. Great. You’ll have something to talk about. That’s just the point though: to get to know each other you have to speak.

Sitting silently next to each other in a dark cinema for two hours? Not a very good way of getting to know each other.

Besides, remember the rule of an exit plan? Mhm.

You can’t very well up and leave in the middle of the movie, even if you realize you have zero attraction for the person next to you. Instead, you have to finish watching the movie, then dutifully accompany them to have a drink.

Worse yet: they may be hungry by now. You can make up a lie about not having much time, but how good will that sound?

After all, you knew you were going with them to the movies and that you would have to spend time with them afterwards…

You could flip it: have drinks first, then go to the movies. But imagine ending up next to someone that really didn’t get the hint during drinks and is still trying to move closer, or hold your hand during the film? Yeah.

Wine Tasting — Trust me, it’s better!

Something like a wine tasting, cheese and wine pairing, or beer tasting, is a great way to spend an hour together, while also having other people to interact with. You just don’t want a full day tour of a vineyard — stick to an even that’s max an hour, or so.

3. Going to a Shooting Range – You Good, Bro?

It sounds exciting, doesn’t it? Lots of fun for a tinder date. Pretty sexy. Especially if you both dress for the occasion. A bit of role play.

Sure, it is all of the above, but you don’t know who you are meeting. Imagine going to a shooting range with a lunatic.

They’ll have a gun. Need we say more?!

Hanging with Your Friends!

This is a bit of hit or miss. For it to work your friends have to

  • a) be a nice bunch that will respect your date, whether s/he is super interesting or deathly boring
  • b) you have to be able to pay attention to your date and ensure they don’t feel left out
  • c) it needs to be something where s/he can leave after 30-60 minutes if you don’t have chemistry (such as you’re all preparing to go to the next bar and they can join/go home, or you can choose to go with them somewhere else, or leave yourself).
Credit: Unsplash

While hanging with friends is low-key and a great way to get to know someone without much pressure, it’s usually better for first dates with people you already met in person. So you know if they’ll gel with you/your friends.

If they’re super shy, meeting five of your closest friends in one go can be too much. If you’ve spoken to them on the phone and chatted for a while and gotten a hang of their personality, it’s a more safe bet.

4. Having a Big Dinner — As exciting as Sleeping Pill!

You want to impress each other, so you want to dress up to your knees and head to a fancy restaurant for a three-course first tinder date dinner.

First of all, are you really comfortable being THAT dressed up on a first date?

Secondly, how much time investment doesn’t it take just to get ready?

Thirdly, you can’t leave in the middle of dinner, even if they turn out to be as exciting as a sleeping pill.

Meet for Dessert!

An after-dinner dessert (or late afternoon one), can be really fun for first Tinder date. You go to a place with lots of choice, so you can talk about your favorite deserts. You get to oh-and-ah about how good it is.

You get a sugar rush. It’s sweet. In more ways than one.

5. Extreme Adventure Sports — Not For First Tinder Date!

You’ll probably survive if your date, who said s/he likes adventure sports, turns out to be a wuss and refuses to climb the wall in a climbing place. Not too much fun, but nor too much time or money wasted.

But imagine if you’re in the same situation out on a rock? Especially if they’re halfway up the rock. Or when you’ve paid to go paragliding and last minute they back out as it’s scarier than they thought?

And just imagine heading out to the middle of nowhere to go mountain biking with a stranger. And if they come home with a broken ankle because they were busy trying to talk to you when biking…great first date. Not.

If you both love adventure sports, then the second date is a better opportunity for that. For the first date, stick to slack lining in the park.

Go for a Walk — Less Intensive, More Effective!

A walk gives you something to do.

Buying take-away coffees, or some ice cream, and then going for a walk in the park, or on the beach (choose somewhere with plenty of people around as it will give you topics of conversation and help you both relax as no one fears getting kidnapped).

You can always bring a frisbee, paper to make boats for the pond, that kind of thing and then use it if, and only if, you feel your Tinder date is the kind to appreciate it.

6. Paintballing

It sounds like fun, right?! But you have no idea if they’ll start crying when hit by a splash of paint, or if they’ll go completely crazy and shoot you up close, which is against the rules and hurts like hell. It can also get awkward chasing each other with guns on a first date.

Go to a Quirky Bar or Café

When you go to an oddball place, you have something to talk about naturally. Whether it’s the super cool decor, or the funky drinks menu.

Credit: Pexels
7. Meeting in the Middle of Nowhere

I’ve touched upon this already, but being in the middle of nowhere with someone you don’t know, creates unnecessary fear and stress. You don’t know them, they don’t know you, there isn’t enough trust to meet far away from people. No matter how great the sunset happens to be at that beach.

Coin Toss Dates — The Penny Date!

We actually got this idea from the guys over at Kirby, but it’s so good that I (the author), for one, am going to try it out!

Basically, you walk around the city and at each street corner you toss a coin. Heads you go right, tails left.

Of course, you can also have a goal. Such as stopping at the coolest bar you see (maybe you need to walk far enough to find two so you can make a choice, esp. if you find the first one after one minute of walking…), or having dessert somewhere.

Inside Scoop: Is Tinder even Worth it Anymore?

8. A Concert Awkward & Terrible!

Sure a concert is fun and if you both like the same band, great. However, you can’t talk to each other during the concert, they may turn out to have moves like the worst 70s disco nerd, want to get trashed, or sing like a banshee and embarrass you in front of hundreds of people and you’re stuck together for the duration of the concert.

It can get awkward as F**K.

Loud bars are just as bad idea fir Tinder date. You may be able to get out after a drink, but if you couldn’t hear a word of what they were saying, or vice versa, what are the odds of you having any chemistry?

Events in Your City — Exciting Experience!

While concerts, plays and the movies are a terrible idea as you can’t really talk to one another, farmers markets, Christmas markets, Renaissance fairs, art fairs and the rest, are excellent first dates.

You can walk around, looking at different stalls, so you have something to talk about and it won’t take all day. And the bonus is you might actually get to see something new in the city!

9. A Boring Coffee Shop

There’s nothing wrong with meeting for a quick coffee. In fact, it’s a great way to establish if there’s any attraction in real life. But meeting in a boring coffeeshop, as the Starbucks mentioned above, leave you few conversation topics.

Like “is your favorite the mocha or the Americano?” Not cool.

Same goes for boring restaurants. And remember: no long meals. Meet for a drink, or a snack, and if you like them you two can go to a restaurant once you get hungry.

Ice Skating or Rollerblading — Whyn’t do something epic, right?

OK, so if you, or your date, are prone to breaking your bones (or being scared of being seen looking like Bambi on ice), don’t do this. If not, it’s a pretty epic way to spend an hour together.

You can laugh (especially if you’re beginners) and after some fun exercising, you can stop for a coffee, ice cream, or hot chocolate.

10. Double Date

Having chemistry with one person is one thing, with two more, another. And horrors if it’s a first date and your date ends up liking your friend instead of you, or you end up liking your friend’s date.

Exhibitions and Museums — Hit or Miss!

This is similar to a fair — you walk around and check something out. It helps if you’re both into whatever is being exhibited, but if you both hate it, it can also lead to a good laugh.

Just bear in mind that if you’re a science geek and they’re an arty fart…unless you can make the science exhibit fun for them, or they the art exhibit fun for you, it’s not a good idea.

You need to find common ground, or something that’s new to the both of you, or something one can explain to the other to make it interesting. We all know what it feels like going to a boring exhibition and that is a total killjoy.

Hooking up on Tinder is not a rocket science, but there are dos and don’ts if you want to up your game, or have any game at all.

So who am I to tell you how to Hookup on Tinder?

Someone who has written more dating advice articles than you’d ever care to read. OK, but still, who am I to do that?

I’ve used Tinder, on and off, for about two years. I got a message a few days back saying that I’ve had 25k likes on my profile. Granted I’ve traveled a lot, so I guess I have the opportunity to get more likes than most.

Now, I’ve used Tinder for different reasons over the years. I’ve also had all sorts of men approach me on there. And I know what makes me stop in my tracks and read a profile, answer a message, or run for the hills. I have also read about other people’s advice and experiences on Tinder and it turns out, their thoughts are very similar to mine.

5 Steps Guide For Tinder Hookups 1. Tinder Bio For Tinder Hookups
Notice: Unless you’re a girl, these bios wont help you with Tinder hookups

Sure, you’re only looking for sex. So photos should be enough, right?! No. You need to show you’re not some douchebag. You need to show a girl can be confident you’ll treat her well before, during and after sex. You need to show you have character.

When looking for hookups, as contrary as it may seem, writing a few lines to establish that you aren’t a whack job is really important.

No, you don’t need an essay. Absolutely not. But two, or three lines, to establish that you are a decent guy and have a sense of humor…yes.

Oh, and writing something also shows you’re willing to work for it.

Examples (+Prewritten Bios):

“I like ice cream, surfing and cuddling on Sunday mornings. I’m terrible at cooking, but great at take-outs by the fire in winter, and by the beach in summer.”

“Your mother would like me because I’m a mean cook and polite gentleman.

“I know how to polish my shoes, clean the house and do the laundry. Just so we have that out of the way. As for the interesting stuff: I like adventure, I’m a sucker for days on the beach, I love a great bottle of red and even greater cuddles, I have a thing for fireplaces in winter and I’m so totally down for spontaneous experiences.”

“I never did the nine-to-five and I’m a terrible cook, but I’m great with adventure, cuddles and sharing pints of ice cream.”

“I’d like to think gran did well with teaching me to be a gentleman, but I have an adventurous soul, a naughty mind and love good banter.”

“Midwest gentleman come to live in NYC. Run a creative agency by day, explore the city by night. Love a good hike in the mountains, as much as I love a get-together with friends in the city. I also love my mother, but if you ever meet her, don’t hold it against me.”

“I like intellectual conversation and bottles of wine. I provide bear hugs and fireside chats. I am prone to adventure and pillow fights. I have a ridiculous love for poodles, but promise I’m quite manly in other ways.”

2. Photos That Work For Tinder Hookups

Before people even read your profile, they’ll look at your photos. They won’t read the profile unless they like them. Photos are there to show who you are. That means it’s not just about your face, or your physique. Shocker.

A woman wants to know who she’s going home with. Or in this case: who she’s getting into a conversation with, which might lead to sex.

A picture with your dog, or niece, shows you’ve got a heart. Wonderful.

Examples of Tinder profiles that get you laid!

If you have a shot with you and your friends, it shows you have friends. Great. You’re probably not a complete nutcase then.

If you’re out playing sports, you show you’re taking care of yourself and you’re enjoying yourself. You’re happy and healthy.

A full body shot (with your clothes on), shows you don’t secretly have the body of a Sumo wrestler.

A pic of you dressed up in a nicely fitted suit, or cool outfit, shows you’ve got style. You know how to dress. That’s sexy.

In general, shots of you having fun, shows you’ve got a life. Shots where you travel, cook, ride a bike, paint…do whatever it is that makes you happy.

If you have as much artistic sense as none at all, get someone good with a camera to help you pick the photos for your profile.

Examples of Tinder profiles that wont get you laid.

How Many Photos Should You Use?

Use as many as possible to show off your face and your life. The more women get to see of your life, the more comfortable they’ll feel meeting up with you. If you show you’re a social creature, who enjoys your life, knows how to dress, etc. you’re a lot more likely to get laid on Tinder.

Male Tinder profiles with three pictures got more likes over those with only one. This is specifically pronounced for the male Tinder users, for whom matches frequencies increased more than five-fold. 

The Not Impressive Shots You Think Will Impress:

A picture of you cruising down the PCH with in a Porsche with the roof down…sure, that can be fun. A pic of you posing next to a Maserati…that’s what’s called the small d*ck complex. You’re trying to make up for something.

The same goes for pictures of your expensive mansion, or Rolex. Seriously?

There’s a huge difference between men who enjoy their lifestyle and look comfortable doing things they enjoy, and those who take pictures to prove something. If you have something prove, see a psychologist, instead of using Tinder to prove it.

If you flex it right, you’ll get the reward.

This goes for close-ups of your abs, your crotch and gym pics too. Knowing you’re a gym rat is impressive because…? If you want to show off your body, take a shot of you surfing, or playing beach volleyball, or something of the sort.

Avoid Group Pics, and shirtless pics— Period!

As a general rule, if men have lots of blurry shots, shots where you can’t see their face, a ton of shots of nature…I think they’re trying to hide. If I am to swipe right on a profile and spend time talking to someone, I want to know who I’m talking to.

Never ever use a blurry shot, a shot of something other than yourself, etc. as your first photo. I don’t even bother looking at the second one.

The Off-putting Shots:

Extreme close ups of your face where you look insane. Why? It’s off-putting.

Likewise, bathroom selfies. Really? Like, you’ve no friends who can take pictures of you.

A few selfies are fine, especially ones with friends in them, but selfie obsessed people often have a broken ego, or you have to assume they have no friends who can take their photo.

Likewise, if you link your Instagram account and every single photo on there is a photo of you…trying to impress, much? Or desperate for hookups, much? Unless you are a model using Instagram to sell yourself as such, use it to show what you love in life, as much as your own face.

Also, one shot of you and your niece, or one shot of you and your dog, fine. All shots with you and the dog…this is looking like you have a dog obsession. Not sexy.

3. Be Honest If Want to Get Laid Using Tinder:

Here’s the deal: people use Tinder for different things. Many use it for quick flings, some use it for casual dating, some for finding love. Most use it for a mix of the three, or, rather: even if you’re looking for true love, you don’t know what will happen when you meet someone.

It all starts with dating. Maybe you’ll end up casually dating them for a while, hooking up a few times and then ending it. On the other hand, you could be looking for hookups and fall in love.

Based on Lendedhu study, 22.22 percent of Tinder users surveyed answered that they are looking for a hookup,

Point being, be honest about what you are looking for and what you’re open to. If you aren’t, you’ll end up wasting your time with people who want something else. There’s no point wasting time talking to a girl who’s looking for a relationship, take her out for a date, only to be told she absolutely won’t consider casual dating.

And trying to coerce her into it…really?! You’ll leave her feeling bad if she decides to have sex when she truly is looking for something more.

“I’m looking to date and have fun, but if I happen to meet someone I fall in love with…great.”

“I’m looking for fun and naughtiness.”

“Looking to meet people, have fun, see where it takes us.”

“Looking for fun and play.”

You DON’T have to state it in your profile, but you do have to establish it once you start chatting to someone and feel like there’s chemistry.

4. Looks v.s. Style and Personality

We were all born with different looks. Sex appeal has a lot to do with style, not looks. If you dress nicely, have great hygiene, take care of your body and are confident in yourself (i.e. you’re comfortable being who you are), it shows.

If you want to score on Tinder, you first have to see to that. No matter what you put in your profile, your personality shines through.

Based on SimpleTexting survey, humorous personality is the most effective.

Living from the heart means you’re neither shy, nor an ego show off. It means you’ve decided to take charge of your life and say bye to the wounds your ego inflicted upon you. It means you’re comfortable — you aren’t above, or below, anyone else. You are. It’s the most confident anyone can be.

5. Improve Your Communication Skills:

You also need people and communication skills. Otherwise you won’t understand what people communicate to you and/or they won’t understand you.

And as you will meet people you contact on Tinder, you won’t get laid unless you can talk to them in real life, too.

The First Message

“Hey.”

“Hey, how are you?”

Do those sound like interesting opening lines? No. Really? No. They’re not.

If a woman has a decent profile, she’ll get a lot of men approaching her on Tinder. Like, a lot. If you want her to answer to your message, say something interesting.

The easiest way to show you cared enough to actually look at her profile, is to mention something about it, whether something you have in common, or something you liked about it.

“That ice cream you’ve got in one of your pics looks delicious. Can I have some? ;)”

“You moved to NYC from LA? Let me guess: the eternal sunshine and pretty beaches just got too much for you? ;)”

“I see you visited Paris. Me too. What was your fav thing in the city? :)”

“I love the shot of you in Paris. Have a bit of a taste for globetrotting, do you? :)”

If you’re in a hurry (and you have a decent enough profile to back up you aren’t a complete douche) a “Name!” can also work. Why? It’s their name. It’s a lot more personal than “Hey.”

“Hey,” sort of indicates you have no clue what to say, or don’t care enough to say anything more interesting. Using their name is personal and confident.

Cheesy jokes that are actually funny can also work. And Tinder sometimes provide them for you — when you match with someone you get a message saying things like “We matched you. We can’t type for you as well.”

So saying something like: “Tinder tells me I have to type you a message to start the conversation. So demanding of Tinder, don’t you think? Shouldn’t they, like, have a bot doing that by now?! ;)”

GIFs can also work…if they are well thought out. One with red roses…no. Strangers giving you red roses is strange. In fact, an experiment showed you’re 30% more likely to get a response by opening with a GIF, and conversations including GIFS last on average 2x longer.

“You’re so hot/beautiful/cute,” is another no, no. Why? Too much, too soon. And the beautiful ones are usually more impressed if you’re attracted to more than their beauty.

Once the Conversation Is Rolling…..

Plan to meet up. After a few back and forths, you want to make things happen. While you might have great online chemistry, it doesn’t always translate. Communicate for long enough to show you can hold a conversation (that really only takes a few lines back and forth), then move it to WhatsApp (or similar) and schedule a date.

You can even tell them you prefer meeting in person to chatting online. (Read another of my articles about great first dates.)

Complements work great, so use them to keep the conversation rolling.

And if someone drops out of the conversation, move on. Tinder is filled with people. I don’t know how many people you meet that stop talking to you and vice versa.

You realized they aren’t your cup of tea, someone else came up that was more interesting, you got busy with life and didn’t have time to flirt…oh and the people who just use it for an ego boost and never intended to meet up with you in the first place… If it happens, just move on.

If someone sounded really, really cool, shoot them a message after a day, or two. If they don’t reply, leave it. You don’t have to unmatch them, as something really could have happened that means they aren’t on Tinder, but don’t hold your breath.

In Closing — lemme know what you think?

I hope this helped you up your Tinder game. It’s actually a lot about people/communication skills. You have to present yourself in the right light; in a way people can connect to and then interact with them in the same manner.

Not surprisingly, there’s a disproportionate number of dudes on Tinder, which can make it harder for the male members of our species to get a right swipe on this online dating app. (Sniffle). That’s why a lot of guys turn to Tinder hacks to up their chances of scoring a match and hopefully a date on the app. There’s no reason why girls can’t use these too, though, if they want to get more matches or just higher quality matches.

What Is a Tinder Hack, Anyway?

A Tinder hack is an easy way to maximize your matching capabilities on this online dating app. In some cases, using a Tinder hack can be a little like tricking the system a bit. But don’t worry, it’s all completely legal and a lot more ethical than catfishing. Nothing too shady here, just some smart tactics to help you get more Tinder matches.

Don’t be shy. Read on.

Generally speaking, there are two types of Tinder hacks: 1) strategies to improve your own Tinder profile and 2) strategies to manipulate the Tinder algorithm. In this article, we’ll give you some examples of each of these types of hacks that you can try out right away.

What Is the Tinder Algorithm?

Yes, Tinder has an algorithm, and no, it’s not easily explained—or even fully known, for that matter. What we do know is that every Tinder user has been assigned a secret score used to help the app determine who to show their profile to and which profiles to show in their own feeds.

There is no way to find out what your score is (not that anyone would ever really want to know), but fortunately, there are ways to increase it. Many of the Tinder hacks we share in this article are designed to do just that.

10 Tinder hacks to help you get the most from Tinder: 1. Use the right photo(s).

No Tinder hack can replace the simple act of using the right pic on Tinder. It may not be right; it may not be fair, but it is true—looks matter on Tinder (and IRL for that matter). There’s just no getting around it. Use a picture that shows you at your best and ditch the hat and sunglasses.

2. Use the app regularly.

This may sound like the most obvious Tinder hack of all time, but it’s actually legit. Tinder says the more you use the app, the more your profile is shown to other active members. It’s a fool-proof way of getting more exposure and hopefully, more matches. From the folks at Tinder:

We prioritize potential matches who are active, and active at the same time. We don’t want to waste your time showing you profiles of inactive users. We want you chatting and meeting IRL. And there’s nothing better than matching and immediately striking up a conversation. Using the app helps you be more front and center, see more profiles and make more matches. This is the most important part of our algorithm — and it’s totally in your control.

3. Send the first message.

Confidence is sexy, so go get you some. In fact, get enough of it to message your match first. It’s sad that so many matches senselessly die from inactivity.

If you’re sitting around waiting on her to message you first, then you’re part of the problem. Be the solution instead, and send her a message already. What are you waiting for?

4. Try a funny pick up line.

If you’re trying to come off suave on Tinder, give it up already. Take off your bowtie, turn down the classical music and grab a beer because it’s time to get a little more casual.

Taking yourself too seriously can be poison to your likeability on this dating app. Humor is the anecdote. Go funny or go home.

5. Like it up on Facebook.

Take a minute to log in to your Facebook account and like all of your favorite movies, books, celebrities, and bands.

Why?

Because Tinder shows your potential matches which FB pages you’ve liked. And this could be a good starting point for some future conversations between you and your next girl/boyfriend. Remember, finding a shared interest is a good way to start instantly bonding when you meet a new person. This works online and off btw!

6. Strike a swipe balance.

The Tinder algorithm doesn’t like it when you swipe right too much or not enough. It rewards you for striking a nice balance.

If you swipe right on every profile, your own desirability score will decrease and you’ll get less exposure. If you’re too picky, you won’t be shown as many potential matches. Try to strike a balance.

7. Use a Superlike.

Tinder gives you one free SuperLike a day, but some people believe using this feature on the dating app will make you look desperate. This may or may not be true. What we do know about SuperLikes though is that they have an effect on Tinder’s algorithm.

When you use a SuperLike, your profile gets pushed to the top of the deck, at least for the person you SuperLiked. If that person likes you back, then your score improves. Whoop!

Inside Scoop: Learn here how to use Tinder Superlike effectively.

8. Activate Smart Photos.

Tinder claims using the Smart Photos feature can increase your matches on the app by 12%.

Smart Photos is a new Tinder feature that keeps track of your most popular photos on and shows them to new matches first. It also puts your remaining photos in order of popularity. Using the feature will cost you nothing and could make the difference between a right and left swipe, so why not give it a go?

9. Ask original questions.

By asking your match original questions, you’re essentially doing two things: keeping her attention (that’s the “original” part) and prompting her to respond back (the question part). As we mentioned earlier, so many Tinder matches die because the conversation never gets started or falls flat.

Don’t let this happen—get curious, and ask some fun questions to get to know your match better. Make sure these queries have substance. Forget “What’s up?” or “How was your day?” You might as well ask her how to spell BORING!

10. Ask her on a “proper” date.

And by proper date, I don’t mean wine and dine her. Guys, pay attention. It’s the 21st century, and dating has changed fairly drastically. Asking a girl out via a dating app requires that you do two things: keep it public and keep it short.

Girls these days are worried about both their safety and their sanity when accepting dates from online suitors. She doesn’t want to get kidnapped, nor does she want to die of boredom on a seemingly endless date. If you do match with someone you can carry on a conversation with, remember these two things when taking things to the next level.

There you have it—10 Tinder hacks designed to help you score more matches and dates on Tinder. Try them out today. They could be a game-changer!

Whether you’re just looking for something casual or hoping for a serious connection on Tinder, you’re going to have to get to know your match—to some extent anyway. What better way to do this than to ask questions?

The worst thing you can do on Tinder is to waste your match’s time (or your own for that matter), so don’t just sit there twiddling your thumbs—jump right in! Here are some sample questions to ask your match on Tinder:

Serious Questions to Ask Your Tinder Match:

Looking for something serious on Tinder? You’re not alone! Despite the app’s reputation for booty calls, more and more people are using the app to find something other than just a casual hook up.

If you’re one of these guys or gals wanting to find a long-term relationship on this online dating app, then it’s time to get curious and ask some strategic questions.

After all, you need information and lots of it in order to find out if a match is worthy of investing any more of your time and attention. Here are some ideas to get you started:

1. What’s your idea of a perfect date?

This, first date, is a good question to ask your match if you’re looking for someone to start a long-term relationship with.

Why?

Because the answer should give you a fairly good idea of what it would be like to spend time together. Like actual time. In the real world. If your match’s notion of an ideal night out sounds appealing to you, then you may be barking up the right tree!

On the other hand, if it sounds like a bore, then it’s time to move on.

2. How would your best friend describe you?

This is a great question because it gives your match an opportunity to describe his or her best qualities without sounding like they’re bragging.

Believe it or not, some people are so humble that they would never tell you about these awesome qualities from their own perspective.

By answering this question, though, they can brag per se without seeming narcissistic.

3. What did you give your best friend (or sibling, parent, etc.) for his/her birthday?

If generosity is an important quality in your ideal mate, then this is the perfect question to ask. If your match says “nothing”, then this may be a red flag that you need to move on to the next guy or gal.

If not, then it will give your match a chance to flex a bit!

4. How much time do you think a couple should spend apart?

This can be a really important question to ask on an online dating app like Tinder, especially if you’re an independent person.

Some people can be controlling in relationships, so you want to make sure you steer clear of this toxic quality. If he says couples should never spend any of their free time apart, for instance, then that’s your cue to run!

Silly Questions to Ask on Tinder:

Not everyone on Tinder is looking to have a deep philosophical conversation. I mean let’s face it—a lot of people are just looking to hook up on this app and nothing more. So it’s perfectly ok to ask a question that’s a little on the lighter side. The great thing about these questions is that often, their answers reveal more than what you might expect!

5. What do you like on your pizza?

This may seem like a frivolous question, but some people take their pizza pretty seriously. If you’re the kind of person who refuses to eat frozen pizza or who judges friends when they order pineapple on their pie, then you may be one of them.

Why not get this heated discussion out of the way right out of the gate? Is he a pepperoni or a salami guy for instance? These are things you need to know!

Plus, if you end up together, you’re gonna be sharing more than a slice or two together, am I right?

6. Ice cream or frozen yogurt?

You can tell a lot about a person by their choice of frozen dessert. If she’s all about FroYo, for example, she’s probably a health nut or at the very least, hits the gym on the regular.

This can either be a plus or a minus for her depending on your own personal habits and/or activity levels.

If she goes for ice cream, it could mean she doesn’t take herself too seriously or she knows how to have fun. It could mean nothing at all, but still—it’s something to talk about on Tinder while you try to figure out if you want to meet up.

7. What’s in your refrigerator right now?

This is a fun question to ask to get a conversation going, and it could have some surprising results. Depending on what the answer is, you could learn a lot about your match.

If the answer is beer and leftover pizza, then you know you’re dealing with the typical frat boy, for instance.

If it’s protein shakes and kale, then you’ve got a fitness freak on your hands. Neither one of these is necessarily a deal breaker, but it’s good to know!

Hot Questions to Ask Your Match on Tinder:

For a lot of people, Tinder is about getting things heated up as quickly as possible. If that’s what you’re on the app for, then there’s no sense in acting like it’s not. If you want to get a flame going right away, here’s some kindling for you:

8. Lights on or off?

This question is a good one if you want to test the mood without offending your match because it’s suggestive but not over the top. If he or she answers honestly, it might also give you some insight into how open your match is when it comes to intimacy. And that’s always a good thing to know.

9. What body part do you find the sexiest on a man/woman?

This is an interesting question that can give you a good bit of insight into your match. If he answers“eyes” for instance, then he may be a romantic at heart. If she says “abs,” then she’s probably a fitness junkie.

The answer to this question can also let you know the odds of your match being into you when you meet. After all, if his or her favorite body part is a nice plump bum and you’re lacking in that department, then it may be a no go.

10. Do you have a fetish?

This is a risky question to ask, but if you’re willing to give it a go, it could make for a stimulating convo! The answer to this question could also help you fend off the weirdos.

If he shares a fetish that you’re definitely not into, then you’ve dodged a bullet. You’re welcome.

Asking questions on Tinder is a lot like using Tinder pick-up lines. Before you do it, you need to have a fairly good idea of what you want the outcome to be. And if you plan on posing a serious or hot question on Tinder, be prepared to face a little rejection. It just comes with the territory. As long as you don’t take yourself too seriously, though, you can’t go wrong!

Bumble rolled out a new feature in the summer of 2017 called SuperSwipe. Not everyone is a fan, but those who love SuperSwipe really love it, like super love it. Let’s dig in to this new paid feature.

What Is Bumble SuperSwipe?

SuperSwipe is a premium feature on Bumble that lets you show a potential match that you’re super interested in them. SuperSwipe does not come with a Bumble Boost subscription (the app’s paid version). Instead, you have to purchase SuperSwipes with Bumble Coins, an in-app currency.

Bumble’s SuperSwipe is a lot like Tinder’s Super Like. Bumble says it’s akin to “walking over to someone you’d like to get to know, tapping them on the shoulder, and introducing yourself.”

Before you start tapping (digitally or otherwise), though, let’s learn more about the SuperSwipe on Bumble.

How Does SuperSwipe Work on Bumble?

SuperSwipe just so happens to be super easy to use. Once you’ve purchased Bumble Coins, you can simply tap the heart icon on a user’s profile to express your interest. Each SuperSwipe will cost you a single Bumble Coin, which is equivalent to about $2.

You can purchase up to 20 Bumble Coins at a time, so if you have several profiles you’re really into, you can SuperSwipe to your heart’s content. Plus, the more you buy, the cheaper each SuperSwipe is.

When you SuperSwipe, a message is sent directly to the user. He or she won’t have to swipe right on your profile to see that you’re interested. That’s why it’s called a “super” swipe as opposed to a normal swipe.

SuperSwipe Advantages (The Pros):

You’ll get more Bumble matches.

Well, according to science, anyway. Research says that when you show interest in an online dating prospect with a special signal or feature, it increases the chance of a positive response. The following comment posted on Reddit may provide some insight into the thinking that goes along with this scientific phenomenon:

“When someone superswipes me, I do give them a second glance. I consider it a positive sign of legit interest (as opposed to the guys who just swipe right on everyone).”

Guys can make the first move (well, sort of).

Without SuperSwipe, there’s really no way for a guy to express interest on Bumble, at least not directly. He can swipe right on a profile, of course, but the girl won’t know it unless she also swipes right or unless she’s a paid Bumble Boost member.

If he uses a SuperSwipe, though, she’ll get a message instantly informing her that he wants to get to know her better.

Inside Scoop: No Matches on Bumble? Find out Why.

SuperSwipe Disadvantages (The Cons)

They don’t always work.

Some online daters just can’t be bought off. At least, that’s been some people’s experience with SuperSwipes. Take this one guy on Reddit, for instance:

“Since it’s been released, I still have yet to get a match with a SuperSwipe. Judging from other posts, it doesn’t appear to be very useful. Has anyone ever gotten a match this way?”

Clearly, SuperSwipes don’t always work, and there’s no guarantee you’ll get a right swipe back when you send one.

You might look desperate.

Bumble claims SuperSwipe won’t make you seem thirsty, but there’s no guarantee. Unlike Spotlight (another premium Bumble feature), SuperSwipe isn’t confidential, so users who receive the SuperSwipe message will know that you’ve paid a fee to get their attention.

This can be off-putting to some online daters. And since there are no free daily SuperSwipes (like there are for Super Likes on Tinder), you can’t play it off casually. Worst case scenario: you’ll look desperate.

They can get costly.

If you start relying on SuperSwipe to get matches on Bumble, it may end up costing you a pretty penny. At $1.25 to $2 a piece (depending on whether or not you purchase in bulk), it can add up fast.

3 Tips for Using SuperSwipe Successfully

1. Be sure you have a great Bumble profile.

There’s no swipe, no matter how super, that can make up for a lousy profile on Bumble. To create an awesome Bumble profile, be sure to answer as many questions as possible and make use of the 300-character freeform section to make a bold first impression.

There are several different strategies you can use to spice up your Bumble Bio, including using humor, asking a question, or offering an unpopular opinion, for example. Key takeaway here: don’t be boring!

2. Pick pictures wisely.

They say a picture says a thousand words, and this could not be more true on Bumble. When you SuperSwipe someone, your profile picture will show up on their end alongside a notification that lets them know you’re super interested in getting to know them. Whether they decide to match with you or not will depend heavily on their opinion of this all-important pic.

There are lots of things to consider when selecting a profile picture. For instance, make sure it’s a clear image of your smiling face (no mean mugs!) and that there’s no one else in the picture. This allows your potential match to focus on you and you alone and to get a good idea of what you actually look like.

3. Use SuperSwipe after a match has expired.

A strategic use of this premium feature is to use a SuperSwipe right after a match has expired. Consider this scenario: You swipe right on a girl’s profile, she swipes right back, and a match is made. Unfortunately for you, she never sends you a message, so you’re left hanging. Now is the best time to use a SuperSwipe to nudge her to start the convo and save your match!

Bumble SuperSwipe definitely isn’t guaranteed to get you more matches, but it’s certainly a fun way to try. As long as you don’t start compulsively SuperSwiping, the cost is fairly minimal, so give it a spin and see if you can start a buzz on Bumble!
