Want to succeed with a dating app? Here are 3 vital tips

Gone are the days when you had to withhold the fact that you met your significant other via a dating app. Thanks to the arrival of smartphones, swiping left and right in pursuit of a soul mate has gradually become the new normal. But with so many people searching for love on these platforms, how do you stand out from the crowd?

Here are three tips that will help improve your chances of finding love via a dating app.

First impressions matter. Choose your photos wisely.

First impressions still matter, and nothing makes a great dating-profile impression more than an excellent photo. While setting up your profile, take your time to select shots that show your best looks while hinting at your personality. It works best when you use photos that potential matches can easily use to recognize you when you finally meet up in person. Get at least one great close-up of your face and one more distant photo that shows a full view of your body. Just be sure not to go overboard with this. Nudes, revealing, or group photos may not be a good idea. 

Your bio is important. Work on it.

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but the text in your profile still matters. According to studies, men with blank bios are 90 percent less likely to find a match. Even if you are the cutest person on the platform, a blank bio or a poorly written one will grab the attention of the matches you desire. While some apps have room for a full-length bio, others only limit you to a line or two. No matter how much space you have, utilize it to highlight your personality and what makes you stand out. Browse through other profiles to see what your “competition” is doing. Then, clearly describe yourself, your hobbies, and what you are looking for on the platform. 

Your expectations are vital. Clearly articulate them.

Once you have put an awesome profile in place, it is time to start looking for potential partners. With the sheer number of people looking for love on these apps, a picky dater will likely take forever scrolling through available options looking for the perfect match. In fact, the high number of potential matches can work against you by distracting you from the awesome profiles that are readily visible. This is where having a clear and concise expectation comes in. Getting the right match becomes easy when you know exactly what you are looking for.

Online dating can be fun and scary at the same time. Once you have completed your dating app profile, check out the app’s features in order to understand what it offers, and how you can best use it to meet the love of your life.
