A Tinder profile is made up of your first name, age, photos (of your choice) and any pages you’ve ‘liked’ on Facebook.
You can also include your education and ocupation in your bio.
According to a new study by Tinder, wearing glasses in your profile photos will reduce your changes of a right swipe. Instead of having specs appeal, wearing glasses could reduce the chances of finding ‘true love’ by 12 per cent, which is a pretty substantial percentage for something we had never really considered before.
But why would this make people think twice about a right swipe? If you’re happily coupled up, you’ve probably helped your single girlfriends swipe through the reams of desirable – and not so desirable – potential dates.
If you become insatiable and want more, or if you don’t have Tinder Plus, simply buy a Boost any time you like. We know what you’re thinking: how on earth are we meant to create the perfect Tinder profile (right-swipeable obvs) to lure in our soul mate?
Head shots from professional modelling photos don’t work either – they tend to be a bit of a turn off.
A great way of discovering common interests you might share with your matches.
Tinder then finds you potential matches near your location (you can narrow it down by age and distance, too) and if they take your fancy, you swipe right to ‘like’ them. If they’ve also ‘liked’ you – then bingo, it’s a match and you can start messaging. A recent analysis of 12,000 profile photos of both men and women showed that 72% of them wore neutral colours in their pictures, as opposed to eye-catching bright colours or a garish prints, with the colour black overwhelmingly popular for people’s chosen outfits.
Well, that could be about to change thanks to Tinder Boost.
Yes, with a name that does exactly what it says on the tin, the new Tinder update gives your profile a push in the right direction – boosting you up to be one of the top profiles in your area for 30 minutes.
