This Guy Tripled His Tinder Matches In A Week By Making One Small Change

Using dating apps can leave you feeling like you’re searching for a single grain of sand at the beach.

In other words, oftentimes there are hundreds of non-matches before there are one or two good ones.

Your Profile Is The Key To Getting Good Matches

If you’re feeling exhausted by a lack of matches, sometimes it can be as easy as switching your profile up to bring in some new ones.

After all, the profile is the first thing potential matches see, and if someone doesn’t like what they find, they won’t swipe right.

He Changed His Profile Bio And Noticed An Increase In Matches

One man posted his Tinder success story on Reddit claiming that his matches tripled in one week after updating his profile bio.

We’re not sure what his previous bio was but his new one gets a few points for humor and a few more for creativity.

The New Bio Is Interesting And Comical

Not everyone online loved his approach even though OP says it worked for him. The bio starts out strong and intriguing and then shifts to comedy.

If Brandon had ended his bio there, it may have worked even better. Asking for nudes is almost always uncalled for, but it’s especially weird if you’re 28 years old. Come on, man.

Not Everyone Was Sold On The Bio

One of the top comments suggested that OP was misleading with his “triple” the matches comment.

Another said that he should change the “Send nudes” part to add “Send nudes to confirm identity.” It’s still kind of tacky but at least it’s part of the joke.

Is Comedy The Best Approach To Building A Profile?

Other Redditors debated whether comedy is the best approach to building a dating app profile, or if it is an easy way out.

If someone tells a joke in their profile or uses a quote, they’re not giving you much to work with as far as getting to know them.

People Take Dating Profiles Seriously

Reddit comments: Funny bios always, always, ALWAYS do better than honest simple bios. Now, whether those girls actually talk is a different story.I deleted my silly bio because I needed something fresh and never really came up with anything new, and I've had a miniscule amount of matches since. It could just be that I've got through my local pool, but my matches went up with a silly bio, and went WAY down when I got rid of it; So overall is a funny bio better than an honest simple bio?; Your profile is you in a display case. Anything that shows off your wit and creativity without sticking you head up your butt is a plus

One response pointed out that funny bios do have a tendency to perform better for getting matches as opposed to “honest, simple” bios.

Vardarac reinforced the importance of profiles when they said, “Your profile is you in a display case.”

Effort Is Always Noticeable In Profiles

A bare profile means people have fewer things to potentially start a conversation about.

Most dating app users like to see that someone put a bit of time and effort into creating their profile and answering questions to allow others to get to know them.

A Good Profile Can Make Or Break Your Matches

A good profile definitely has the ability to make or break your matches on the app.

If EnsonAmata‘s post proves anything, it’s that some women really do love a silly sense of humor in a profile.

Maybe The Cats Are Doing The Profile Work

Reddit comments: Are you sure it isn't the cute cats in your picture, because as a man I would swipe right definitely for the cats.; Dude, 100% of the time I swipe left because of the kitty cats, I'm not even there to get laid.

While his approach definitely wasn’t for everyone, and the “Send Nudes” part could easily make lots of people swipe left, overall his new bio seems to be working for him.

Another Redditor suggested maybe it’s the cats in his profile picture that are doing the work, which was backed up by a different commenter.

Jokes And Cats Could Secure Matches

If there’s anything to take away from this profile, it’s that women enjoy funny profiles that have cats in them.

It’s not a scientific formula, but according to the comments section, it seems to work.
