How are you screwing up your screwing chances?

(Answers to the top 5 dating app questions)

Are you ready? Because you are about to find out why you’re failing in the dating world, and it ain’t about you being ugly or something. It’s because the dating world has certain rules (more like guidelines) and you aren’t following them.

The 5 most often asked questions people have about dating apps are:

How to get noticed?
What to say once you’re noticed?
What kind of photos should I take?
How to keep the conversation going?
How to close?

and believe it or not all of these questions have very straightforward answers. Don’t worry, I’ve got just what you need to fill up that inbox with responses and have a long list of matches. Just keep reading and apply what you’ve learned.

1. Change your bio

Your bio should describe you in a short but fun way. It should be different than any other bio. Even if you have really boring and mundane life you should make it sound exciting. For example: unemployed? Write that you are a Pajama testing engineer. Be creative, make her laugh.

2. Write something unique

Your opener is really important. She gets so many messages with the same text “hey”. Don’t be boring, try something creative, get out of your comfort zone. You can comment about her photos or bio (not her look tho). But if you have problems with your creativity, here are some examples:

– Sometimes I feel like I am an unreliable narrator in my own life story. Know what I mean?

– I think people should always lead with something more than “Hey.” I mean, like, put some effort into it, you know?

– My mom will kill me if she finds out I messaged you.

3. Change your boring photos

You’re wondering why your friend Johnny is killing it on tinder and you can’t get even a decent match. I’m gonna be honest, it ain’t about the looks. It’s about your photos. They are too boring to look at! Women like to see you have some fun in life. That you have friends, enjoyment and hobbies. Not just a few selfies in a dark room with a creepy look on your face that screams “please like me”. What do you expect her to think after seeing this?

But fear not, because I’m gonna explain exactly what kind of photos you should have on your profile to bring you the girls you want. Only the right photos can get you noticed.

The first should be the one that represents YOU. Who you are and what you like. Show your passions and hobbies. Something that stands out from the crowd.
The second should be with your friends (preferably female) to show that you have a social life.
The third photo can be with a pet (yours or your friends) to show your gentle and nurturing side.

4. Keep the conversation going

After the opener keep the conversation going with fun questions about her. What she’s doing for a living, why she chose that particular college, 3 things to describe her as a person… Than comment on that with fun and non needy vibe.

5. Close successfully

If you see the conversation is going well and she is showing interest ask her for her Instagram (not her phone number yet) and then continue the conversation there. The close should be light and with no pressure, for example: “you sound like a fun person, I would totally grab a coffee with you tomorrow. What time are you free? ”

Hope this helped. Good luck!
