“Girls are 99% less likely to swipe right on you if you aren’t willing to divulge some basic info about yourself.” Another suggestion: Link your Instagram account to your Tinder profile.
“It’s a great way to give your potential matches even more insight into your personality and interests.” So just how bad is it out there for the women on Tinder–who make up 42% of the site’s active users?
If you or your boyfriend cheats, it could be time to take a break to reevaluate what you want from the relationship.
Cheating is a breach of trust, and it will take time to rebuild that.
But beware: "Women are visual and will swipe left if your photo is a turn off,” says online dating expert Julie Spira. Take it from Rosette Pambakian, Tinder’s VP of Global Communications & Branding and a Tinder user herself.
“Posting photos of you with sunglasses says you’re hiding something. Posting photos of a gorilla may be funny to you, but does she really want to kiss that furry animal? “Never, ever skip the bio section,” says Pambakian.
You need to make sure that you are willing to forgive, and you could benefit from some time apart from your boyfriend to make that decision.
“If a break is agreed upon after infidelity, it is often because there is insecurity about the health and potential for the relationship, and taking a break will help both people to decide if they are happier with or without one another,” says Coleman.
Each day there are 26 million matches made on Tinder, with more than 8 billion matches made to date. You may want to show off your physique, but on the first swipe, she probably doesn't want to see you naked." Of course, landing the coveted right swipe takes more than just the right photo.
It might be a good time to take a break if only to fully take advantage of whatever you are doing during that time apart.
“If both agree that dating long distance won’t work well for them, then taking a break and seeing how they feel on their own, which often includes dating others, can be a way to test the strength of their connection and desire to make the relationship work, in spite of some temporary distance,” says Coleman.
The term ‘taking a break’ is probably purposely ambiguous – it can mean whatever you want it to mean in terms of your own relationship. Does anyone ever take a break and then continue with a successful relationship?
