How to create the perfect Tinder profile
On dating sites, creating an attractive profile requires some time and effort. The way you present yourself will affect your chances of scoring the perfect date and will allow you to get as many matches as possible. What are the golden rules of the subtle game of online seduction? How can you present yourself in the best possible light, while remaining true to yourself? In this article, the LOVE Team will give you all of our top tips to successfully transform your love life, whether you’re a beginner or an experienced user!
There are some simple rules for creating an online profile. However, remember that the advice we give you is not based on any hard, cold facts: what works for some people may not work for others. Whether you're looking for a serious relationship or something more light-hearted, the most important thing is always to be honest: be true to yourself and show off your personality. Your honesty will be rewarded.

The first impression

Choose your first profile photo carefully. Even before they start reading your profile, this is what will encourage users to swipe right or stay awhile on your profile. It only takes a few seconds to make a judgement. Choose a close-up of your face rather than a full-length photo. Your features will be more visible and you'll have an easier time setting the stage for a successful first exchange.

This first photo should highlight your best features. Do you have a killer smile? Sparkling eyes? Show them off! Now is the time to put your best foot forward!

Don't forget to pay attention to the quality of the photo: lighting, sharpness, everything that makes your face stand out.

Finally, the background of your photo is crucial. If the pic has been taken inside, make sure everything is tidy, otherwise people might think you’re a slob.

Add more photos

The photos you use should give an insight into your life and tastes, showing you from different angles and in familiar situations.

You can choose to show yourself with your pet, which will make you look gentle and kind to the users who view your profile.

Share your interests by posting photos of you doing what you love: sports, cooking, travelling, etc. That way, the people who view your profile will have an icebreaker based on the things you have in common!

Be careful not to choose photos of yourself in the middle of a group of friends. Users might be confused about which one you are!

Finally, do not include photos of your exes (even if they are hidden by an emoji). You’ll be sending out the wrong signal and missing out on interesting potential matches!

Write an interesting description

Once you've chosen your photo, it's time to start writing your description, which is obviously crucial for users to find out who you are. The goal here is to introduce yourself, explain who you are, and what you're looking for on Tinder.

Describe yourself, but don't go into too much detail. Leave a little mystery, you'll have plenty of time to discover more about yourself once you've made a connection with another user.
Talk about your passions, your hopes and your desires.
Be sure to specify the type of relationship you are looking for. Don't go into too much detail about the physical characteristics of your ideal match. On top of the fact that you run the risk of offending potential matches, looks do not determine personality. Give yourself the chance to be surprised by profiles that you might not have thought you'd be attracted to.
Finally, use humour as much as possible: a witty remark is likely to open a lot of doors!
