Dating apps like Tinder, Bumble, Hinge or Dragonfruit1 can be amazing tools for making the most of your online dating experience. Sure, you may have sunk not inconsiderable time into your OKCupid profile and making sure you’ve maximized your compatibility with as many matches as possible, but not all of your potential Internet paramours are going to be on traditional dating sites. At the same time however, Tinder can be a different, more frustrating beast and one that a lot of guys never get the hang of. After all, the last thing you want is to put in all that effort just to never get any matches.
If you’re going to use Tinder, you have to know how to use it right. Here’s how you avoid the mistakes that make women skip over you and develop a profile that’ll get more matches than you know what to do with.
