An Idiot’s Guide to Tinder

Online dating is no longer the privelage of those who can afford Plenty of Fish accounts. Tinder has exploded but how can you ensure you get the matches you need? Motley Editor Kieran Murphy gives his top tips

Have an Attractive Friend in Your Photo
Tinder is all about love at first site in a digital age. While our parents locked eyes across the dance hall and it was love at first site, we decide within 5 seconds if we’ll ride someone or not. So just in case you’re not the best looking person (I’m sure you are) have your most attractive friend in your profile photo to grab them in. Just in case someone looks at the rest of your profile make sure that your attractive friend is in every single photo for the rest of them and then you can reel them in with your eh shining personality.

Have a Good Opening LineSo you’ve made a match. What do you do? Ask how they are? No. Just don’t. You need a bonafide set of chat-up lines that will gaurantee success. For instance – I’d rate you a 9 out of 10 because I’m the 1 you need or Do you own a chicken farm? Because you sure know how to raise a… nvm that one actually. You need to surprise them because in 20 years time you need a better story than “We met on a dating app” to tell your kids.

Just Keep Swiping RightEver hear of the phrase “Just throw everything on the wall and see what sticks?”. Well this method can be applied to Tinder as well. Just keep swiping right and soon enough you will get a match and the maybe just maybe they might like you. Process of elimination like.
