What is Tinder?
I bet you know that Tinder is an online dating mobile app that was launched in 2012. It isn’t a website! And you can’t access it unless you know have the app downloaded on your smartphone or your tablet. Tinder turns out to be one of the most popular and hottest dating apps today and girl, does it involve a lot of swiping. But, guess what, that’s the way you get to meet the one. If you aren’t a big fan of smartphones and tablets, you might have to pass on this, because it doesn’t work on a laptop or desktop.
Once you have downloaded this app, you would have to feel up some questionnaires about yourself and indicate the kind relationship you are actually in search of, either you want a serious and long term relationship, or you just want some casual romance or do you want to flirt? This is done, to make matching easier and faster for you.
A Tinder Bio
For a lot of people, coming with an excellent tinder bio can be a whole lot of work and begins to feel like you are at an interview. So many people end up creating a long and boring bio, and it cuts down their chances of getting picked or instead matched. What people want is usually a short, fun and exciting bio, something that sparks up interest at first glance.
In your bio, you should be able to communicate the kind of relationship you want in a short sentence and also some few fun things about yourself that reflect your personality. You should also note that you need to upload a beautiful picture. Here’s a nice sample you could use:
I have no trust issues
And trust me, you would keep on calling
Till you have got enough.
How to Use Tinder
Finally considering opening an account? Here is the perfect guide.
A. You need to download the app
First things first, you have got to download this app, remember there isn’t a way to sign up outside the app. As long as you have Google play store or apple app store, then you can get it. But bad news for the windows phone users, there isn’t any version for them, just yet.
B. Do you have a Facebook account?
After downloading the app, the next thing you have got to do is to sign up. But you can’t do this without a Facebook account, so if you don't have one, you might have to create one in a jiffy. For now, the only way you can sign up and create a tinder account is by using a Facebook account. This is because; tinder wants to affirm that you are actually a human being. If you really like your privacy that much, you can actually make your tinder account private from your Facebook account
C. Work on it
I hope your Facebook account hasn’t been dormant for too long, you might have to work on it to make your matches better. Upload some better pictures, put in some fun interests and your exact location. This would increase your chances of getting a good match of your taste.
D. Its Tinder time
Now you are finally done with Facebook, you can squarely face your Tinder account. Time to do some magic to that profile. Upload a lovely and attractive profile picture of you and take a look at the general settings and then don’t forget to write up something small on your profile.
E. How about the settings
Let’s talk about the settings. This is highly important and should be taken seriously, you get to choose and set according to your taste. You can decide your age/age range, sex, and so much more. You also get to choose the gender you are interested, and you can as well select both. Don’t forget, you have also got a bio to create, an interesting one by the way.
F. Swipe and Match!
After you are done setting up your profile and your bio, it’s now time to do some swiping. You get many people popping up with your screen depending on what your interests are, and then you get to swipe to the left or to the right. Left for a no and right for a yes, depending on your pick, there are also other options, the red, blue and green. Red is obviously a no while the blue is for a super like. You get matched when you swipe right for someone who also does the same. After that, you can both text each other.
