11 Tips to Ensure She Swipes Right

Thanks to apps like Tinder and Grindr, it has become super easy to check out members of the opposite sex and give them a quick thumbs-up or thumbs-down. Sometimes you have less than one second to make an impression, so it’s important to make those photos count. If you heed these 11 tips, you should start receiving a lot more right-swipes in the dating app jungle.


1. Make sure she can easily see your face
You’ve only got a few seconds. Let her see your pretty face!

2. Wear a bright color
If you want to be noticed, you have to be noticeable. Beige and gray blend into the background.

3. Feel free to be silly
Girls love a sense of humor. Showing that you are goofy or silly is a good indication of confidence and demonstrates that you don’t necessarily care what people think.

4. Snap a photo with man’s best friend
It is an absolute total ploy in order to pull at the heartstrings of women. And you know what? It works! Grab your pooch and snap a selfie.

5. Avoid using group shots
If she can’t figure out which one is you, why would she swipe? Even worse, she might be interested in your better-looking friend and ask you to hook a girl up!


6. If you can’t compete, take another track
If you didn’t get blessed by the beauty fairy, don’t try to compete. Instead, take a different track by being different and unique.


7. If you’ve got a talent, show it
People love interesting people. If you have a unique talent, showcase it! Not only is it interesting, but it shows that you have passion, drive, and the willingness to see things through.


8. Showcase a favorite activity
While we all enjoy binge-watching TV in our sweats while munching on chips, you may not want to showcase that in your dating app profile. Instead, include a photo where you are engaging in a favorite activity. Not only will you appear more interesting, but it gives people an opportunity to ask you about it.

9. Make it a family affair If you have
a kid and are looking for something more serious, it’s totally okay to have a picture with them. It shows that you are caring and loving. A nice photo with your parents at their anniversary party is also good. Having a good family bond is a great indicator of a well-adjusted person.


10. Smile bright
Everyone loves a good smile! Not only are we biologically drawn to a smile, but it is very indicative of what’s going on in your life. If you’re smiling, chances are you’re not bitter, cynical, or jaded, and people usually want to be around people like that.


11. Include a witty tagline
Sometimes the tagline alone is enough to make people stop and take a closer look. Not only is it fun, but it tells the ladies that you’re witty, you don’t take yourself too seriously, and you enjoy life. These are all great traits in a potential match!
