Screen Shot 2016-09-27 at 4.01.33 PM Tinder has many success stories, and who says you can’t meet the love of your life on the app? But before you get started, go through this checklist: Start swipping right Don’t be shy about swipping right for any number of guys you actually like. Always swipping left can reduce the number of suggested matches by the app. Read the bio It gives you an idea of what your matches are looking for. According to research by Northen Texas University, men on Tinder tend to have self-esteem issues. So if a guy has already put himself out there – which you’ll see in his bio and the number of pictures he has posted – try to meet him halfway. Include all the things that you’re looking for in match in your own bio as well. Respond to messages You’ll never know where the conversation might lead if you don’t entertain it, or judge the person too soon. You don’t really have to exchange numbers too soon. But, start a conversation. Add pictures The more, the better so that your matches can sort of gauge the kind of things you’re into, and of course, see what you look like. Don’t you get more interested in matches with pictures? Superlike someone This shows that you are very interested in the person, their pictures and their bio. It’s flattering to the person on the receiving end, and there are more chances that they’ll want to make contact.
