Since Tinder allows you to only send messages to women with whom you established a mutual Tinder connection, don’t limit your options. Keep swiping right for almost all the women that get displayed on your feed. The higher number woman that show up, the higher are the chances of you meeting your match.
The Profile Photo
Whether it’s social media, dating site or dating app your profile photo plays a crucial role in you landing a date. Your profile picture should represent your personality and interests. It’s an advertisement to show what kind of man you are, what your lifestyle is like or what your interests are. For instance, if you’re a hiker, post an impressive picture of yourself at the peak of a mountain or hill with a breathtaking view. If you’re an avid art lover, share a high-quality picture of your in front of the famous Monalisa portrait in the Louvre museum in Paris, France. Another option is to take a photo of yourself alongside your family members or friends to show how much they mean to you, and how much important they are in your life.
Now that you’ve found your match, it’s time for you to make the first move. Send your lovely match a brief message that showcases all the mutual interests you both have. This approach is safe, comfortable and feels non-threatening and shows her that you’re truly interested in her. You can also go a little overboard by sending her a compliment in your message. Compliment something about her style sense, her hair, her eyes or her smile.
Most women place a high value on these features as it makes them feel that you’re genuinely attracted to her, instead of objectifying her. It also makes them realize that besides her physical attributes, you’re also acknowledging her unique traits. Keep your messages small and sweet, and don’t propose anything sexual initially, even if you’re only using the app for casual hook-ups. Instead, entice her with fun and interesting snippets that will invoke her curiosity to meet you in person.
If you want to date a woman, you need to make that woman feel desired. Get to know her well. Ask her questions about herself, her personal interests, favorite things to do in her pastime, favorite ice-cream, favorite places to visit in the city or anything else that you might have in common. Show your excitement and enthusiasm while conveying your feelings to her. Don’t make her wait.
