How to Write the Best Tinder Bio

It’s rare you get the opportunity to learn directly from an expert in this field, but Dev is willing to lay her cards down. The Tinder director has worked with her team to identify the key trends shaping success on the platform, consulting relationship experts and revered swipers for their advice. And as you can probably expect, when it comes to the best Tinder bios for guys there’s a lot to consider.

“Tinder at its core is a social discovery platform, and every swipe or match on Tinder represents the possibility of starting something exciting – whether it’s an epic friendship, crazy adventure or a heartwarming love story. And it all starts with your profile and bio,” said Dev.

“Writing a good Tinder bio is the key to attracting quality matches. What you’ve written in your bio can deepen the initial attraction and inspire someone to message you and start that initial conversation, instead of matching and moving on.”

According to the dating and IT expert, there are some specific rules to getting your bio right. Simple, straightforward and effective, Dev’s guideline reveals the key to crafting the best Tinder bio, as identified through research. According to the spokesperson, Tinder has spoken to countless relationship experts and users to find the secret to having a good bio. Here is what they found:

How to Write a Good Tinder Bio
Honesty Be honest from the get-go and list your intention – Are you on Tinder to make friends? Let your potential matches know why you’re on Tinder and what you’re looking for. If you’re not entirely sure and want to see where your Tinder journey takes you, I would still encourage you to spell that out instead.
Tell them your delights and dislikes Share something more personal to you, that gives people a better idea of who you are. Are you a big adventure junkie that goes abseiling and hardcore four-wheel driving? Or are you more the indoor kind who binge-watches all 3 Lord of the Rings movies over a box of Dominoes’ classic Hawaiian? Let them know! It helps break the ice and allows people to swipe on the basis of shared interests. Don’t worry about the routine details (where you live, work etc.), Tinder already lists those for you so use your bio as a place for your personality to shine.
Ask open-ended questions Something that almost always works is leaving an open-ended question at the end of your bio. It gives your matches a place to begin a conversation with you. We know starting a conversation is difficult and small talk can be cringe-worthy – this way, you give your matches the chance to say anything but ‘Hey, lovely weather outside’.
Grammar Lucky for you, autocorrect will do all the work, but it is still worth running a quick spell check, and making sure you have the right “your” and “you’re” (one of my pet peeves).
Music Music is the #1 passion and interest that means the most to Aussie Tinder members. Whether it’s your favourite song of all time or the song you have on repeat at the moment, this in-app feature is another window of opportunity to meet someone that will be your next karaoke partner.

Common Tinder Bio Mistakes

Online daters know that getting your Tinder bio right is one of the most challenging aspects (it’s probably why you’re reading this very article). Navigating the minefield that is online dating can lead to some embarrassing results, as you would have seen in your swipe travels. According to Tinder expert Papri Dev, you can safeguard yourself against shame by following some general rules.

Here’s what you need to avoid in your Tinder bio:

Common Tinder Bio Mistakes
Don’t leave your bio blank You may be a person of few words but think of it as your first impression. And you know what they say about first impressions.
Steer clear of clichés For your Tinder bio, Google is not your friend nor is an overused line. Look to have conversation starters built into your bio.
Avoid generic descriptions Specifics matter! For example, instead of labelling yourself as a “foodie,” talk about your favourite restaurant or cuisine. Not only do you need to stand out from everyone else who also loves those things, but also attract those who share that specific aspect. This strategy also gives your match an easy idea for a first-date spot.
Cover up that chip on your shoulder Don’t use your bio as a place to vent your frustrations if something didn’t pan out the way you expected, whether somebody didn’t message back or didn’t look exactly like the filtered photos they’ve posted.
Dating app discomfort There’s nothing embarrassing about being on a dating app however I find that people are still saying “I’ll lie about how we met” or “I can’t believe I’m on here.” Everyone is on Tinder for a reason, so try not to make them feel bad about it as well.
Judgmental Requirements For Your Matches Saying what you don’t want in a match could be limiting your opportunities. Stating that you’re not interested in short guys or that you prefer redheads or that you’re only looking to date someone of a specific education level is close-minded and will result in prospects who don’t fit the bill swiping left on you. Whatever you think you want, things might change when you connect with the right person. Be open to dating outside of your type and you might just be surprised.
