*This stat, any names, and the entire press release is fake of a satirical nature to celebrate April Fools Day. The subjects dealt with in this release are entirely fictitious,and not based on any real evidence or feedback from Tinder members.
But If you are looking for *real* ways to connect with a foodie on Tinder here are nine tips to send your Profile Completeness score all the way up.
Your interests are hot
Finding common ground is one of the easiest ways to hit it off with someone. Your interests are what make you unique, so lead with them to show your most authentic, real self and, in turn, match with people who are more likely to match your energy.
Having a bio will get you better matches
Profiles with bios attract more matches. Avoid being immediately beige flagged by including a quick and witty statement that shows off the best of you, while also leaving them wanting more. Try to stay away from using the most popular bio of all time: “Here for a good time, not a long time.” Trust us, it does not help your chances.
Flex your convo skills
The more active you are on the app the more you’ll get shown to and be seen by other members. There’s no adrenaline rush quite like matching and immediately starting a convo with someone who may or may not be your new crush, so don’t be afraid to message first. Chances are you’ll get a message back, as 75% of 18-25 year olds reply in 30 minutes or less.
Work hard, swipe hard
Looking for someone who shares your school spirit? Maybe a creative looking for your muse? Adding your school and job title is a great way to find your potential ride or die, or in this case, narrow down on who might not be the best fit for you. We know the urge to say you went to “School of Hard Knocks” is strong, but resist it. Your potential matches will thank you.
Don’t leave potential matches guessing — set your location to meet people nearby, especially if a LDR isn’t something you’re into. And while we’re on the subject: We understand Dalston to Peckham is considered long-distance to some, so set your radius to meet people in your neighborhood or that next one over. And if you’re feeling international, expand your horizons with Passport to meet a cutie in Croatia (or literally anywhere on the globe).
Four is the magic number
Your pics are a great way to show who you are, what you’re into, and get the convo started. We actually know that four is the perfect number of photos to have in your lineup. Also, make sure your first pic gives a clear view of your gorgeous face — that’s how you reel them in. Give your profile some edge by connecting your IG, so new pics will automatically upload as you post them on your grid – work smarter, not harder.
Music is the 6th love language
Can we all agree that music compatibility is crucial to a solid relationship? Make sure you connect with people who are on your wavelength by adding your song — your life’s soundtrack — to your profile via Spotify anthems. 40% of members between the ages of 18-25 have their anthem on their profile and experienced nearly a 10% increase in matches.
Unverified profiles are a red flag
Verify your profile to let your matches know you’re the real deal. Try to stick to matching with only verified profiles to avoid getting catfished. Profiles with the blue check are more likely to receive more matches.
