When I first got on Tinder during my Christmas break home from college in 2012, I could swipe about 10 times before it told me I was out of people in my radius. Yes, the pickings were slim, but those slim pickings worked in my favor when it got down to actually matching with people. Obvioiusly, you were more likely to swipe right when you knew there were less people to see overall. But now that everyone and their mom is on Tinder, the competition is a little more fierce. So how do you stand out? Well, these dating app hacks straight from Tinder will teach you everything you need to know.
Before we get started on these dating hacks, let me tell you about a pretty big dating holiday (yes, I’m calling it a holiday) happening this Sunday. This Sunday, Jan. 8, is “Dating Sunday.” Essentially, it’s the biggest dating day on Tinder. Just last year, Tinder found they had more than 44 million matches made on Dating Sunday. So if there’s one day you’re going to want to really give dating apps a shot, it should be Dating Sunday, when your chances of getting a match are at the very highest.
Now that we’ve settled it and decided you’re absolutely, definitely going to be on Tinder this Sunday, it’s time to get your profile in tip-top shape.
