Millions of people log in on Tinder & co. on daily basis. Most of them looking for "the one" which makes it even harder to stand out in the online dating scene. Unless you use our tips of course ;).
As you may figured out yourself, no one is into a curmudgeon. So it's not surprising that you'll attract more viewers when you have a smiling photo on your profile. But did you know that even the way you're smiling can effect your viewers? According to a research from OKCupid, you're more attractive when you flash your teeth while smiling instead of keeping your lips together. Oh and keep the duckface photo for yourself, that won't help you in any way. Trust me xD.
2. Set the bait
With your girl logic, you think putting "I love traveling" on your profile will break the ice and lead to the smooth conversation. Unfortunately men won't get the hint. Therefore spice it up with a teaser such as ''I am always in for a citytrip (don't forget to ask me about that time I spent 3 hours on a bloody hot police office in Milan!) ;)." Bonus: the conversation won't start with something like "Hey baby, you look hot. When are we getting married?"
3. One of the guys
Of course you are and always will be a girl, but don't be afraid to show a bit of your manly side on your profile. Your future lover dreams of someone to brag about and tell his friends you're one of the guys. So if you're into football or in the weekends like to work with your dad on his oldtimer, don't hesitate to mention it. But don't push it though!
4. Sex it down
It is perfectly fine that Fifty Shades of Grey is your favourite book, but don't expect this information to help you boost your reputation as "girlfriend" material. Unless you're just interested in a wild night of red lights. Hell yeah we want to unleash the sexy kitten, but slowly and subtle. Very subtle!
5. Be funny
You don't have to be the new Amy Schumer to be funny on your profile. But men find humor just as important as us women do. A grumpy and cranky woman is a total turn off. A bit of self-mockery can do wonders.
6. Lady in red
Red, the color of passion, love, romance and your clothes! You don't want to blend in with all the other profiles. It's even scientifically proven that the color red triggers the man's brain. On the other hand, don't overdo it with a deep cleavage or so. We don't want to send off the wrong signals.
Let me tell you a little secret...
You don't have to be obsessed and spend 24/7 on dating sites. According to research, Sundays are the crowdest so this is the best day to log in. The Tinder peak hours are from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm. On online dating sites the peak hours are from 5 pm till 10 pm.
Good luck and happy dating!
