By now, you must have heard about the dating app Tinder. Perhaps you are one of the 50 million users. Using Tinder is no rocket science. Based on your location, you are matched with other Tinder users that are near you. If you are interested you swipe right to like them and if you don’t like to be matched with that person, you swipe left. And if the other person also likes you than you can start a conversation. If you already have a Tinder account, but still haven’t got the hang of it, or you always wanted to try it, but never really did, keep reading our Tinder dating tips. There’s no harm in trying.
The first tinder dating tip for women and men is to be honest. Don’t lie about who you are in the bio or post a picture of you, that doesn’t look anything like you. Your bio should be simple and not too revealing. The guy should be intrigued by you. You can tell him all about you face to face on your date. The second Tinder dating tip for her is to post a great picture of you, but don’t use any filters or Photoshop. Also, don’t post any selfies with a duck face. It’s unattractive and it’s an instant turn off. Remember, stick to your guns, be yourself and have fun. Don’t expect too much or too little, just be in the moment and do whatever comes naturally.
Another thing to notice is to be aware that Tinder is a hookup app, so be sure that there are going to be a lot of guys looking for a one night stand. If a guy is only interested in sex and he is straight-forward about his intentions don’t be a prude. However, if you are also looking for something casual then great, you are both on the same page. If you like a guy, make the first move and go get him. Confidence is sexy and guys totally appreciate it. If the date goes well and you both hit it off, take a break from Tinder and see where things go with this guy. However, before doing this you should both be on the same page.
The Tinder dating tips for men are the same as the Tinder dating tips for women. Be honest, be yourself and have fun. Don’t post romantic pictures of you with another girls, it may look like you are unavailable. But one or two photos with friends is fine. You’ll look like a guy who knows how to have fun and who is ready to meet new people.
When you get a match, plan a date somewhere that you feel comfortable. Avoid any heavy talk and keep it casual and interesting. If you are only interested in a one night stand, just let her know. It’s up to you to be honest and if she feels the same, great. If not, well them at least you were honest about your intentions, so don’t be a douche. However, if you are looking for something long-term then take things slow. Be confident and talk about your hobbies, interests and keep it casual. Let things take their course.
Assuming that you both have swiped left, it’s time to start up a conversation. Send a message that stands out, so avoid messages like hi and hello. Don’t give your phone number right away. Get the know the guy before exchanging numbers. Because you can’t really know who is at the other end of the line. And there are a lot of creeps on Tinder. Keep in mind that there are shy guys as well. So, take matters into your own hands and be the first to send a message. Use a cheesy pick up line and make him laugh. The best advice we have to offer is to enjoy yourself and be positive.
Forget all about the cliché lines and start the conversation with something that will make her smile. Try out different icebreaker messages and see which one is a winner. Even a cheesy pick up line will do the trick, but only if you use it as a joke. There’s a whole book on every bad line written on Tinder and everything that is wrong about the online dating, so learn something from that. Girls like to feel special, so don’t send the same message to every girl. Use the info in her bio to write a great intro, just keep it casual, because you don’t want to give off a stalkery vibe. Don’t try too hard if the conversation isn’t going that well. Maybe she is just not right for you. There are plenty more fish in the sea.
Before using Tinder while you are abroad, you should get informed about the do’s and the don’ts in that area. So, don’t be lazy and do your homework. The most important thing to notice when using Tinder while traveling abroad is that this “romance” is going to be temporary. So, don’t get too emotionally involved, because you don’t want to get your heart broken.
Both of you should establish your expectations at the beginning and take it from there. Don’t over romanticize this date, the most important thing is to have fun. It’s very likely that you will never see him/her again, so don’t turn this date in a marriage interview. It’s up to both of you, if you decide to stay in touch after you leave. This goes for all Tinder dates, especially when you are in an unknown country. Be careful, you never know who is really at the other end of the app. So, be cautious and always have the first date at a public place. Let your friends know where you are and who you are with.
