Tinder bio and its other half

For one or another reason, filling out the Tinder bio didn’t feel appealing and you left it blank.

It can be the case that you trust in your amazing pictures to make the job for you and that is sort of okay. But not much.

A good Tinder profile is made of a stunning set of pictures showcasing the best of yourself and an amazing bio letting your possible matches know how you are in reality.

One can’t exist without the other. Not even if you are a supermodel.

Unless you just want pretty faces for your collection, but if you are here, that shouldn’t be the case.

If you are serious about online dating and expect to find good matches to hang around, with the possibility of building a relationship, your face alone isn’t going to be enough.

It’s true that if you are above average, your chances of getting more likes will be superior, however, when you want to make meaningful connections instead of having a good night out, your looks won’t do the job for you anymore.

This is where your Tinder bio matters.

The importance of Tinder bio for men

See, around 2016 a change in the behavior of females on Tinder took place. 

They no longer based their right swipe on the good-looking face in front of them.

They liked someone because of the text in their bio.

This had several reasons to happen:

  • Women tend to have up to 10x more matches than men.
  • They tend to care about personality. More so if looking for something serious.
  • It was a window to know if there would be some compatibility.
  • Therefore, a bio saved their time.

When this change was discovered, the boom of Tinder bios appeared and the balance tilted to the other way.

People—mostly men again—stopped caring about their pictures and started thinking about clever things to present themselves.

In the end, this was an incomplete approach as well.

And nowadays, although the time looking at a profile often doesn't go beyond five seconds before making a decision. 

However, with good photos and a compelling bio you can make people stare at your profile for longer, and eventually, the perfect combo you built will grant you maybe not more, but better matches for sure.

Tinder bio for guys (Quality over quantity)

Now, before we get into the main business of coming up with a Tinder bio that speaks for you in the best way, there is something you need to know and understand.

Having an astonishing Tinder bio won’t necessarily give you more matches.

Why? Because it will be made to give you better matches instead.

You might feel tempted by the idea of having a hundred likes every week coming your way. And we won’t lie, it feels amazing to have plenty of room to choose.

But, is that what you really want?

tinder-bio-1

Whether your ultimate goal is to find someone to date, get a couple of one-night stands, or find “the one”, your Tinder bio should help you achieve this faster.

When you go all-in with your Tinder bio, girls swiping will know immediately your best traits, and also your intentions.

That way it’ll be harder for both parts to get disappointed as things go by.

Also, a good bio will make them start the conversations right away with something they feel related to, or that moves them in some way. And this is huge because it means you are starting on with the right foot.

Even if things don’t advance further, having that bio well done will grant you good experiences and conversations that flow with ease.

How to write a Tinder bio

At the moment of creating your Tinder bio, you’ll need to have in mind the three main purposes it will work for:

  • 1. Discern

  • 2. Curiosity

  • 3. Highlight

  • The enemy

1. Discern

It’s possible that you still don’t know exactly what you’re looking for, and that you might be open to possibilities.

Although, we can all agree that you’d prefer to meet certain types of persons rather than others.

Your bio should help you find more easily what you want to find, even if a couple of apparently good matches are lost on the way.

Remember, quality above quantity.

What to put in the Tinder bio

Humans aren’t made of one thing.

We have many likes, dislikes, experiences, beliefs, and hobbies.

Discern what's best to say can be a challenging mission, but don’t worry. We got you covered.

For starters, a god bio has to accomplish at least two of these goals:

  • Show your personality.
  • Disclose some of your interests or likes.
  • Share your occupation or hobbies.
  • Spark conversations.
  • Make laugh.
  • Stand out from the rest.

Bonus points if it complies with all of them. You just made the ultimate bio!

How to make a good Tinder bio

Some people compare the impression made with the Tinder bio to the one on the first date.

You know that feeling when after spending several hours with someone you either know that great things are ahead?

This text in your profile emulates the sensation and encourages in great measure to swipe one way or the other. 

So no more beating around the bush. Let’s see the components of a good Tinder bio.

So no more beating around the bush. Let’s see the components of a good Tinder bio.

Grammar

No matter what you write, do it correctly.

Women pay special attention to this and can discard you for a word misspelled or 4 writin’ as u r still a lzy teen. 

If there is a part where you have to put most of your effort, is this. 

It might be the case that for one or another reason your grammar and spelling aren’t the best. And we don’t blame you, we all have mistakes, but we have plenty of ways to avoid or correct them on time.

First of all, your phone has an autocorrect function. Turn it on and use it. Most apps and word processors also have one as well nowadays. 

Tinder-Bio-5

They were invented for a reason. Don’t let them go to waste.

Then, you have the option to download a free grammar checker like Grammarly

These tend to be completely free and help you with basic issues of grammar, spelling, punctuation, clarity, and they even tell you the mood of your text. What else do you need?

And last, but not least, it’s almost a fact that you know someone who is somewhat of a grammar expert, or just good with their written skills. Ask for their help.

Hovalo tip: If you do know someone with good writing/grammar skills who is willing to give you a hand, also ask for ideas on how to craft your Tinder bio at a superior level that goes beyond listing facts.

Wit

Stating facts like it’s homework due to the teacher you disliked the most won’t encourage those right swipes.

Be clever, present things in an original way, and avoid commonly used phrases like the plague.

Whenever you can, look towards unchaining a reaction. 

Make questions, use prompts, give plot twists, glorify your gaming habits, tell a story about you, turn the boring into interesting… Options are endless and there should be one that matches your personality in the best way.

Tinder-Bio-6

Brevity

Depending on where you’ve been looking for advice before, some will tell you that the best bios should be between one to four lines maximum.

Other sites will tell you that it shouldn’t be longer than 80 characters.

Truth is, there is no rule, but you have to consider that when it’s clever, a line or two will do the job. 

Also, when it’s interesting, reading a longish (no more than five lines) paragraph won’t be such a task.

Tinder-Bio-9

And when things are fun, you can have several lines and paragraphs.

The thing is that you must be careful with the things you put and how you put it, but whenever in doubt, better cut some, than adding some.

Remember that the attention span to your profile will be only a few seconds and no one wants to read half a book when they can get the information in one phrase.

Humor

There’s this phrase that says: “Make her laugh until she forgets you are ugly.”

Okay, probably you’re not ugly, but the point is that humor can (and will) work miracles.

As said before, an ideal Tinder bio will also encourage your match to be the one starting the conversation.

The easiest way to do so is with humor.

Tell something you experienced in a funny way, make a joke out of what you like doing, make one phrase that describes you with humor. You can even use your photos to create a combo.  

Point is that when your matches start laughing, they most likely will start messaging, and they will be in a good mood, which is a huge heads-up.

Tinder-Bio-sample1

When your match is happy, it is more likely that she will give you a priority, and when you keep the humor rolling, she will be more eager to meet. 

But then again, avoid humor based on criticism, being rude or offensive. This will work against you all the time. 

People are on dating apps because they want to find a significant other while having a good time. Provide that good time, turn it into a date, and make that date become a relationship.

Show, don't tell

Stating that you are an adventurer, sarcastic and weird specimen who likes exotic food won’t be enough.

If you are really what you are saying, share a story, your favorite dish, make a joke, display one of your rarities (don’t abuse this though), or post a picture that proves a point.

In the end, anyone can say anything they like, so what will set you apart will be showing your traits without having to point a finger at them.

Tinder-Bio-11

Adaptation/Tone

This is a crucial point especially for those who travel often or live in a different country.

Not every bio works for any place, and you have to be aware that things that are normal or funny in one place, can go against the culture or beliefs of another place.

It’s good to do some research on foreign cultural differences, or whenever you can ask a local. 

A slip of this kind can even get your account reported by mistake, so make sure you adapt to the place where you are.

Tinder-Bio-12

If you don’t travel, this point applies to the kind of relationship you want.

The tone of a bio for a hookup must be worlds apart from the one aiming to find your soulmate.

When you have a very specific idea of what you are looking for on dating apps, make sure to tune your Tinder bio to make this clear early on, and even if you don’t know what you want, that should also be present in some way or another.

Originality

This goes hand in hand with the next section. 

Come up with a Tinder bio that speaks your truth.

Don’t be embarrassed by the things you like, and don’t try to guess what will make people like you.

It’s important that you don’t use common phrases either. Many, many others are using them as well, and even though some ideas were truly clever or meaningful, those got boring after the fifth, tenth or hundredth time too. 

What people look for is someone authentic, not perfect. Embrace the things that make you outstanding and use them in your favor.

Tinder-Bio-14

Should I put my height?

The million-dollar question.

Some say go, boy! while others say it’s a no-go.

Here’s the thing: Most girls do prefer tall guys because they offer a sense of protection. 

They are also perceived as more “manly”. 

And for those women who love heels, having a tall boyfriend means that when they go out, they look like they are hanging out with their actual boyfriend and not a human keychain.

BUT, like almost anything else, your height doesn’t define you.

If you are tall and by this, we mean at least 6 feet (180-183 cm), go ahead. Highlight your height because it will give you a good head start. 

Bonus points if you manage to use your height to your advantage and come up with something funny for your bio.

If you are shorter than that, don’t worry. 

Tinder-Bio-15

Even though most girls do like tall men, in the end, whether they look for a serious relationship or a fun date, they can certainly fall harder for your personality, than for your height.

In the end, your height is only one more feature that makes you. 

Let your match get to know your charming personality, and how tall you are (or aren’t) won’t be a problem at all.

If for any reason a match wants to know your height right away and unmatches you because you told the truth, it’s okay. 

She saved you the trouble. That kind of person, as hot as they might seem, is looking for something superficial.

If you are up for it, you know, just lie to them. 

But have in mind that a good relationship can’t be built over lies.

And what’s most important, she’ll notice the difference when you meet, and it might be problematic. And you’re into online dating looking for something nice, not troubles, right?

How to achieve all that in the Tinder bio

A bunch of tips and tricks might feel overwhelming. 

If it’s hard to start, get off Tinder first. 

Now, open a new document, create a note, or grab a pen and paper and start writing your qualities. 

Ask friends or family about them. They can have a different opinion on something that you hadn’t even considered useful. Or they can come up with features that you didn’t even know you have and are good for flirting.

Divide your traits into categories. 

Which are more important? Which set you apart? Which ones make you funnier? What makes you more attractive? What makes you different from?

What’s that thing that you have that will set you apart from every other profile?

After you have all of that clear, you can decide what approaches are going to be more useful.

Despite how bad you want to have a certain type of bio, consider at all times if it really sounds like you and shows how you are in person.

Pick those characteristics you wrote and look for specifics to make your bio more authentic.

Saying “Skydiving in Hawaii every summer, wanna fall with me?” will be much more appealing than stating “I like sports”, and if you can add a question that invites your match to join you, the better.

Tinder-Sample

Have in mind that only one trait doesn’t define you.

Make several options depending on different topics and in the end, take your favorite parts and mix them, change your bio to see what works best, or decide over time and conversations which one gives you better results.

It’s a possibility that you don’t get the perfect bio on the first try, but there’s nothing wrong with trying and experimenting as long as you always stay true, don’t steal someone else’s ideas and you are happy about what you created.

Hovalo tip: If you want to go beyond with your Tinder bio, you can pair your pictures with the text. Takes some hard work, it’s a bit harder to achieve, but the results can be astonishing.

Why not copy-paste Tinder bio ideas

A shortcut to have the perfect Tinder bio can sound more tempting than an ice-cold drink on a hot summer day, but it won’t be as good in the end.

If you look for Tinder bio examples on the internet, you will find dozens upon dozens of compilations and examples.

Best Tinder bios, Tinder bios for tall guys, Tinder bios for your zodiac sign, Tinder bios for beginners, funny Tinder bios, and so on.

And we won’t lie, they are GOOD.

The problem is that because of their wit, humor, originality, and quality, they’ve been stolen.

Over and over and over again.

This means that people on the other side are most likely to have seen them at least once. 

Despite how tempting it is to take a brilliant idea from someone else, making your own will add a lot more value to your profile.

It doesn’t matter if it’s not as clever, fun, or surprising as you would’ve wanted, but it’s yours.

There is nothing more valuable than that.

Believe us, when you are authentic, your conversations will be as well, and better things will be born from that.

Copy-pasting the idea of someone else will just make you give a bad impression of yourself, and lose the chance to meet incredible people with the same interests as you.

Usually, this kind of bios is the funniest yet wittiest of all. Whenever you can get away with one of these, do it without a second thought.

Always have in mind that laughter is the best way to make someone fall (in most cases, there are exceptions for everything).

Conclusions to craft the perfect Tinder bio

Creating a good Tinder bio, as you have seen, can be quite a task. 

It has to be smart, fun, brief, original, and communicate in the best way a reason why it’s worth dating you, besides how good you look in your pictures.

We’ve seen with the examples how tempting it might be to copy-paste the work of somebody else, but we hope you are more inspired to make your own than to borrow something that won’t be 100% yourself.

You also learned that the best Tinder bio must reflect the best of your personality, and ideally, it will make your matches start the conversation and/or hint at what you can do on your first date.

With that, you can forget about openers and breaking your head trying to think of a good plan.

In the end, making the perfect Tinder bio will require you to take time, effort, and think thoroughly about it to ensure that what you wrote will attract like-minded people who are looking for someone just like you.

We know it can be overwhelming and you might want to get someone else to do this for you. If that’s the case, don’t you worry, we got you.
