THREE SIMPLE STEPS TO SETUP A TINDER PROFILE THAT ATTRACTS MORE MATCHES!!
1. Setup a new Facebook account.
Tinder requires Facebook for most of your Tinder profile information. This isn’t great for those that want to keep their personal Facebook account confidential when speaking to random people. Therefore, the closest way to using Tinder without Facebook is to create a new (fake) Facebook account. This is the best way to protect you from spamming of your personal Facebook in the future and will also help you control the content that other Tinder users can see on your Tinder profile. Plus, you can edit your personal details in Facebook which automatically flow through to your Tinder profile… this way you are able alter you Tinder age as you wish – please be responsible ; )
I know that you’re excited to dive into Tinder straight away, especially since you have TinderSeductions.com’s cheat sheets and secret tips in your arsenal, but all good things take time. You’ll first need to add 50 people on your new Facebook account, otherwise Tinder will not verify your account and show the dreaded “No one new around you” result. You can do this by going to the Tinder Seduction Facebook Page and adding other people doing the same thing – start making Friend requests, or write a post on there saying hello and asking for people to add you. Feel free to Like the page as well! While you wait for your Friends list to build, move onto the next step.
2. Upload the best photos for a Tinder profile to your new Facebook account.
Now, this is probably one of the most critical factors in whether you’re successful on Tinder or not. Because the photos are viewed and judged within seconds, they need to be perfect!
Before I tell you what photo’s to use in your profile you should make sure your picture quality is decent. I’m not talking about spending hours Photoshopping more baby blue into those eyes of yours. So here are some quick tips:
- When taking photos, or selecting photos, use the ones that have been taken in natural light with no flash. Flashes are often too harsh and highlight your blemishes.
- Open up your photos in Microsoft Office Picture Manager or something similar. Office Picture Manager has a nice easy option called auto correct which will add a bit of life to your photo. It is located at the top ribbon under Pictures/Auto Correct.
- If you want to get a bit more tricky, play around with the brightness and contrast options A LITTLE. By slightly adjusting these factors you can give the impression of a deeper tan, whiter teeth and fewer blemishes. The trick is to do this so slightly that it looks like the photo hasn’t been touched up. Also when you do actually meet up with your Tinder target, you don’t want your unedited self to surprise (disappoint) them!
Ok, so now you know how to get your photos looking good. But here is the really good stuff, this is the secret template, which has been successful to myself and many others and has psychological support:
1st Photo: A picture of just you, with open and confident body language, smiling.
We all pickup and respond to body language subconsciously – it’s a proven fact that smiling has a positive effect on people’s emotions and the open body language is saying “look at me, I have nothing to hide, I’m safe”. It may sound slightly ridiculous, but I guarantee you it works. Before they even realise it, your Tinder target is already more comfortable with you.
*No hands in pockets, no folded arms, no legs crossed (unless it’s the leaning back “I own this shit” pose).
*Also it is exceptionally hard to look open and confident from a webcam pic – don’t use one.
2nd Photo: A picture of you, next to a good looking girl(s) and ideally some male friends who aren’t as good looking as you (if you can find some!).
The reason for this is to create Social Proof. It is an extremely powerful social phenomenon which basically makes your Tinder target think that since other people (including good looking girls) are around you, there must be a reason, so they want to be around you also.
The reason for choosing some non-aesthetically pleasing male friends is based on the psychological Relativity Principle. When girls are judging you, it is all based on a judgement relative to other males. If you’re better looking than them, whoever it is, it makes you look like the best choice. Do not make the mistake of putting yourself in with good looking male company, trying to be deemed part of the good looking crew! How many times have you seen a profile pic of a girl in a group, and hope she’s the hot one in the middle…. but she ends up being the obese tag along in the back corner. Don’t be that person! The relativity principle will leave a subconscious memory with your Tinder target, so make sure it’s one where you’re the top choice!
3rd Photo: A picture of you, either showing off your physique (if it’s good) or a conversation point.
If you have a good physique, show it off somewhat indirectly – a shirtless photo at the beach, playing basketball shirtless or something similar. The reasoning for this is obvious; humans are attracted to people who look healthy and it won’t make you look like a douche that uses a gym selfie as his first pic (although this may also work if you’re shredded). If you’re not jacked then I suggest that you go lift heavy, take a multi, misc and then read the next option:
Choose a pic that is a conversation point. This can be a photo of you and a pet, you on your boat, you eating at your favourite local meal place - you get the idea. Firstly, this may give you some conversation topics with your Tinder target. But the real power of this is to use as a launching pad to get your first date. An example is:
After making her laugh and building some commonalities…(See the secret tips and advice on seducing Tinder girls)
Her: “Your puppy’s gorgeous! What’s his name?”
You: “I actually just got him yesterday and haven’t come up with a name yet. You should come take him for a walk with me on Saturday and help me decide on one…. it can be practice for when we have our own gorgeous kids ;).”
This way you’re creating a familiarity anchor (your dog) with your Tinder target and making a casual request to meet up, all with a reasonable back story which will put the Tinder target at ease. The whole idea here is to get your target to focus on something other than the fact that she’s going on a date with a random guy off an app.
3. Download the Tinder application and sign in through the new Facebook account you just created.
After following the prompts, Tinder should pick up the profile photos you have on your account. However, there has been an issue relating to adding photos from Facebook albums – the album continues to load but nothing happens. If this happens to you, the way to get around this is: when you’re in Facebook, select the pics you want for to use for Tinder, and set them all as profile pics. You’ll then have to reinstall tinder and sign up again (takes 5 minutes) and your Facebook profile pics should be added to your Tinder profile.
The above is a proven template for getting solid matches. Use this as a starting base, then play around with picture combinations through trial and error and see what gets the best results for you. If you’ve made it to the end of your Tinder deck, delete your Tinder profile then sign up again, that way you’ll be able to recycle through all the girls with your new profile.
