Boost Your Tinder Game

Some tips on how to get more matches

JACOB ELWELL | THE SPECTRUM Guys, you should know better than to throw this in your bio. Make it 6’0″.

The time of loving is officially upon us. Many of us will spend this special day with our significant others and use this day as an excuse to buy chocolate for each other. For all you singles out there, I feel you. It’s never an easy day for people like us, but it’s days like this that make us mentally stronger. A select few people will be scrambling for dates at the last second, similar to prom, although not to the same extent. To avoid this, you could simply bump up your Tinder game a notch. For guys, we fall vulnerable far too many times and become too attached to a good looking woman we match with. This I cannot help you with. However, there are some ways to make your chances of matching with someone “with good qualities” increase.

There are some ways to make your chances of matching with someone “with good qualities” increase. 

Amp your height

Not by a lot, but just a little. I wouldn’t start with this if I didn’t feel it was the most important, but sadly it seems like women only care about height nowadays. Being 5 feet, 7 inches tall, I can really say being short sucks. It has its advantages, but not when it comes to the ladies. Luckily, there are still some women out there that don’t solely care about height. If you’re 5 feet, 10 inches tall, you better be putting down 6 feet tall in your bio. That extra inch or two to put you over 6 feet tall will be the deal breaker, and the women will flock significantly more. Like I said, though, don’t amp it up too much. You don’t want to be 5 feet, 10 inches tall and claim you’re 6 feet, 3 inches. If you’re just looking for likes and don’t plan on meeting up in person, then amp your height as much as possible. That would kind of take away the purpose of Tinder, though. An extra inch or two won’t be noticeable and could be the difference between a swipe left or right.

If you follow these four steps, I can guarantee you there will be more matches had you not followed them. 

Create the perfect bio

First impressions are key. Your bio must appeal to the interests of women in general while also explaining your own. Usually a cliche quote like “Fake it till you make it” or “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” will get the job done. Don’t be the guy that writes “Send me your best pickup line.” That’s for a woman’s bio. Write a quote about hard work or being passionate about something. Women love passionate guys. You also want to be mostly truthful, however. You can tweak a few things here and there, but if you’re a lazy person who smokes weed every day and you say you’re hardworking, there might be some complications if you do indeed meet up. Be somewhat outgoing in your bio, but don’t say something stupid that would cause a woman to swipe left.

Pick the right anthem

For the sake of getting a match, you might want to lean toward a gender-neutral song. You’re not going to want to have some popular rap song, although some women do like that. Very few find that stuff cool, however. If you want the right anthem, you could take the easy way out and choose “Forever” by Chris Brown, or really any song by Chris Brown. Country songs are also a good gig. For some reason, women seem to like country boys. They especially love country songs, so that would be a winner no matter what. Picking songs by female artists like Miley Cyrus or Ariana Grande can be hit or miss. Either the woman will be happy to see that so you guys can jam out together, or she will take it as an obvious pandering attempt and disregard it. Be careful when choosing an anthem, fellas.

Choose good pictures, but don’t catfish

You obviously want to look good for the ladies, so find your best picture and throw it in there. You also want to be real, so throw in a not so great picture of you as well. Mixing it up will tell the woman you’re attractive and have confidence. Tinder shouldn’t be about fooling someone, but that’s what a lot of people intend to do for some reason. Catfishing can only get you so far. Eventually, you’re going to have to go out of your comfort zone and show women who you really are. Whether it’s what they want or not is entirely up to them.

If you follow these four steps, I can guarantee you there will be more matches had you not followed them. I can’t help you if you’re ugly, but this article should help you get a start on your Tinder life. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone.
