Some men consider the Tinder “About” section or bio to be optional. Some men fill this section out, while some do not. Unless you look like a male model, you need to fill out your “About” section with a clever bio.
While photos are certainly the most important part of your Tinder profile, if a girl is on the fence about your photos, the “About” section or bio can get you over the hump. Of course, neither of these parts are useful if you don’t know how to send the right messages on Tinder.
The key to the “About” section is to come off as normal, whilst not boring. Humor is a plus as well, as long as you avoid coming off as a creeper.
The “About” should be short, but give a brief and entertaining description of your life. Discussion of where you work/go to school, your goals, and your hobbies are fine. It is important for men who have gotten their Tinder pictures up to par and are still finding it difficult to attract more and get matches.
Many men just do not know how to start an “About” and end up getting no Tinder matches.
Below are a few guidelines and examples to help you create the best “About” section you can.
The Good News
If a girl takes the time to read your, “About” section, then she is intrigued by you in some manner. She may already be enthralled by your photo and is reading your “About” to make sure you’re a normal guy. Or she may be on the fence about whether or not she finds you attractive.
The Goal Of The “About” Section
The only reason you fill out your “About” section is to get more matches, more replies to your messages, and more girls messaging you first. The only other benefit your “About” section can lend you is fodder when engaging in messaging conversations with girls.
The best way to accomplish our goals using the “About” section is by creating a funny fact about yourself.
Learning By Example
Instead of elaborating too much on the “About” section, I am going to give you a brief ‘how-to’ on and then different examples of each aspect of your profile.
Good examples of a brief synapse of who you are, examples of funny facts, and then examples of full “About” sections.
*One item to note is your “About” section should be short, sweet, and to the point. You should never, ever use over 200 words in your “About” section. Fewer than 50 words is preferable, but I know some of you creative fuckers are long winded.
How To Write a Brief Synapse of Who You Are
1. Keep Simple
These chicks just want to see a bit of normalcy and humor in your profile. Nothing crazy is needed. Simply put a bit about yourself. Avoid anything too quirky or corny. Quotes are also a big no-no unless done properly.
2. Displaying Ability
Enjoying alcohol or partying is fine, but writing about liking to party and your drinking habits is lame. Most women desire a man who is not only stable, but also somewhat interesting. Nothing says I’m a fucking loser like your only hobby being drinking on the weekends. Men can write about their job or where they go to school, but only with brevity.
3. Discuss Hobbies and Interests
You do not need to be too descriptive in your Tinder bio. There is nothing wrong about being a huge fan of the sushi place down the street, but chances are most women will have no clue where that is. Be broad when writing your profile.
Instead of writing about that specific sushi place, a man could write about his affinity for sushi everywhere. This is much broader and chances are more women will be able to relate to loving sushi than loving one specific restaurant.
A simple to get this point across is, “Sushi addict” or “Sushi is my favorite food group”
Examples Of “About” Section Synapses
Here are a few examples to clarify things for you:
“- London based, 6’2″, former professional athlete.
- Swedish. In Chicago for the weekend”
“Former pro MMA fighter in both Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and Thai-Boxing. Just recently moved to NYC.”
“6’5” Something like an athletic accountant with a slight alcohol problem.”
“Collector of moments, not things. Lover of adventure, sushi, and wine.”
“Manhattan, Med School, Dog Lover.”
“- New York based graphic designer
- Surfing and traveling addict”
“Graphic designer. Yoga enthusiast. Sushi is my favorite food group."
“The least flexible guy in the yoga studio, but my downward dog is top notch.”
A few things to take note of with the examples: if you are above 6’2” it behooves you to list your height. Telling girls about your athletic prowess in a non-douche way is beneficial. Briefly describing your job is also good. Talk of relocation or travel sparks a girl’s curiosity.
There are very little blocks of text here. Periods. Commas. Dashes. Break things up for these girls. They do not want to read a full paragraph.
Using these examples as guidelines, any man should be able to come up with a brief synapses that attractively portrays who he is.
*If you are struggling to write about yourself, right when you wake up in the morning spend 15 minutes writing about yourself. You can write in a serious manner, a funny manner, whatever. Do this for a week. The compile what you have written and see if you can select a sentence or two for your profile. You’ll find you’re the most creative right when you wake up in the mornings. Brain fog is beneficial.
These synapses of a man’s life can be all you need in your Tinder “About” section. However, you can increase the response rate to your messages and the percentage of girls who message you first by using the methods below.
Throwing a Funny Fact In Your Bio
Throwing a funny fact in your profile is a great way to get more matches, more responses, and more girls messaging you first. The key to using funny facts in your profile is to avoid coming off like a creeper.
Instead of lecturing you on the in’s and out’s of funny fact “game”, I am just going to show you some examples:
“Professional pillow fighter.”
“Ranked 5th in the world for thumb wrestling.”
“Shakira told me my hips don’t lie.”
“Runner-up at the world championship of snuggling.”
“Naked & Afraid occasionally constitutes as foreplay for me.”
“I’m a virgin.”
“World champion of warm smiles.”
“I typically Tinder on the toilet.”
These funny facts are supposed to be humorous and kind of weird. The best topics/activities to use are: pillow fighting, thumb wrestling, snuggling, and petting dogs. When coming up with your own, think along those lines.
Do not sexualize these any more than they already are. Anything past this level of “sexualization” will come off as creepy in your profile.
As well, the best way to start these is by either stating you are a professional or ranked. Examples:
- Professional thumb wrestler.
- Professional dog petter.
- Professional snuggler.
- Ranked 7 in the world for dog petting.
- Ranked 3rd in the world for pillow fighting.
By inserting a funny fact into your profile, you make girls laugh while giving them something to talk about. Whether it be in the conversation you have or when she messages you out of the blue because you’re such a stud muffin!
Completed Tinder “About” Sections
When you put the two aspects of your Tinder profile together, you “About” section is completed. Here are a few examples of great completed “About” sections. Make sure to keep the punctuation and spacing the same, minus the quotes:
- “Manhattan, Med School, Dog Lover.
Ranked 4th in the world for thumb wrestling.”
- “Collector of moments, not things. Lover of adventure, sushi, and wine.
Professional pillow fighter.”
- “Former pro MMA fighter in both Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and Thai-Boxing. Just recently moved to LA.
Shakira told me my hips don’t lie.”
The above examples all make for great Tinder “About” sections. You give the girl a glimpse of what you are about combined with something that may make her laugh or cause her to message you first.
Make sure to avoid copying anything in this chapter. Take bits and pieces of the examples, but focusing on creating your own “About” section. Something that is congruent with who you are as a person and this could fix your problem of no Tinder matches. Just follow the guidelines above and you’ll be set.
