Writing a powerful Tinder bio is the last push you need to do to get a girl to swipe right on your profile. 

While most guys swipe based on pictures alone, girls are much more selective when deciding what profiles to swipe on.

Instead of swiping just on pictures alone, women look at the bio as a way to gauge interest.

If you have a blank, boring, or awful bio, she’s going to swipe left. Even if she was initially attracted to you.

A bio is much more important for a guy than a girl.

But just like pictures on Tinder, most guys don’t know how to make themselves stand out from the crowd.

There is a boring or stolen bio on almost every profile.

And many guys are so lazy, they don’t even fill it out.

30% don’t have bios……

Which btw, just adding a bio can lead to 4x the amount of matches…..

And many guys wonder why they can’t get matches on the app.

Even Tinder’s Founder, Sean Rad, has mentioned how important having a Bio is to a profile. 

“Think about how much more of a catfish you’re going to look if you have an empty bio! You’ve laid the groundwork with those photos – now it’s time to support those pics with a fitting description”

Let’s get right into crafting your new bio.

Bio Tips

Do you have no idea how to have your bio stand out? Follow these tips and you’ll be in the top 1% of Tinder Bios

Stop Copying Bios

There are a lot of resources online with copy and paste done for you bios.

And while this is better than have no bio at all, it isn’t ideal.

Just like the generic openers, once a girl has seen it multiple times, it gets annoying.

You need to put in some effort and market yourself. 

Short Statements

I personally like having 4-5 short statements in a bio.

With these statements you should be able to say 95% of what a girl needs to know about you.

Remember to say more with less. You don’t need a paragraph.

No Long Paragraph

Those with bios often make this mistake.

They write a paragraph like this. And continue to write a bunch of pointless words in there bio that really give no value to the girl. It just ends up in a text block like this paragraph. Something that could have been one line. Don’t write like this please. Most won’t read this anyways. If you did, thanks,

Did you read the entire paragraph above? Picture that on your tinder bio, it’s not going to work out.

Your bio needs to be a quick read so she swipes right or left.

Include your height (if over 6’0)

Height does matter. 

And if you are over 6’0, more girls are going to swipe right on you.

Here’s something you should know.

Tons of guys lie about their height.

I’ve heard of guys that are 5’8 or 5’9 putting they are 6’0 in their bio…..

So if you are 6’0 or higher, add an inch to your height.

If you are shorter than 6’0, don’t add your height. 

And don’t lie about it, girls will make fun of you.

Be honest

As mentioned above with your height

Don’t fake your profile to make yourself look like a different person.

It’s going to be obvious on the date when you don’t align up with what’s presented.

Honesty goes a long way, and it will get you a lot farther in life and dating.

Remove The Cliches

“Here for a good time”

“I’m on here as a joke”

“If I Super Liked you, it was by accident”

This really isn’t adding any value to your profile. So many guys and girls already have these statements.

At this point, it’s a waste of space on your profile.

Remove Anything Controversial

Never mention anything to do with Religion or Politics in your profiles bio.

It always divides people and will cause many girls to swipe left.

You don’t need to have the same views on everything in life to get along either if you want to hookup or date. There is so much more to a person than that.

So with that in mind, remove it. It doesn’t matter if you are a socialist or if you are proud of your southern heritage.

Get rid of it from your bio. It doesn’t belong on a dating app.

Remove the Elitistm

Coming off as an elitist is going to get you a lot of left swipes.

Tinder made a blog post talking about some of the different sayings they see in profiles.

Some of my favorite are listed down below. If you want to see the full list, check out their blog post here: Tinder Post

  • I Don’t Know Why I’m On This Thing
  • Sarcasm Is My Second Language
  • Looking For Other Successful People
  • Sapiosexual
  • Oxford Comma Activists

Add more value to your pictures

Your bio needs to have short statements that explain what’s going on in your pictures.

Don’t state the obvious. Expand on the pictures in your bio.

For example, if you enjoy running, don’t put in your bio “runner”

Specify the type of runner and add value to it.

“Ultra runner, training for a 100 mile race”

See how much more you can get out of saying that youre a runner.

It now specifies that you run ultra marathons and that you are currently training to run a 100 mile race.

On top of this, adding more information gives her stuff to bring up on dates, say in messages, or open you up with.

Here’s another example: “Guitarist”

When adding value to it

“Blues guitarist, who loves to play Marcus King, Stevie Ray Vaughn, & Eric Clapton music”

See how the girl now knows you play blues music and 3 of your favorite artists.

Give her more info, she craves it. 

Get Input From Friends

Ask your closest friends to see if your bio reflects your personality and interests.

They know you best and will add some insight on the bio.

Get Input From Reddit & Facebook Groups

After asking your friends, check out the Tinder Reddit.

Here they have a post where people post their Bios and pictures for critiquing.

It’s a great way to have your bio looked at.

You can also join The Pickup Pros Facebook Group.

Post your bio or pictures and we will leave you feedback. 

Split Test Your Bio

You should always be wanting to improve your profile.

Notice what works and doesn’t work in your bio.

You’ll see what gets brought up more often. Keep that.

Things she never talks about should be axed or modified.

The goal is to make it all compelling.

The more reasons to swipe right the better. 

Add a small joke

Add a one line joke to your profile.

Girls love humor. They eat it up.

In fact most girls think it’s a trait all guys should have.

So add a joke that falls in line with the type of girls you like.

Not something you would post to reddit or a facebook group for karma or likes.

This is the only part of your bio which can be swiped from an online source.

Keep it short and you should be good.

Take Risks With Your Bio

Make your bio slightly sexual. Add some additional info that might be questionable.

Only way you’ll find out if you went too far is if you get called out on it, or your likes are decreased.

But here’s the thing, if it works you are going to stand out.

End with some sort of call to action

At the end of your bio you need to reference what your ideal first date is. 

This way you already plant the seed into her head when she reads your bio.

For example, if you want to go to the beach for a first date:

“Let’s hit up the beach”

It’s as easy as that.

Even with a perfect bio, you still need great pics

Following all the advice from above, you will have one of the better Tinder bios.

A bio alone won’t get her to swipe right though.

So check out our article on Tinder Pictures.

Here you will see what types of pictures to take and what works best for your profile so that you can maximize the girls that right swipe on you. 

Pictures are the most important aspect of your profile. Nail those along with the bio, and you’ll be getting a ton of matches. 

How to know if you have a great bio

Message You First

If she opens you up. Your odds of landing a date skyrocket.

In fact they go up over 150%

This shows you how important it is to having a good bio.

Brings it up on dates or messaging

She’s going to mention tiny details of your bio on a date or messaging

Keep note of these as they are signs showing what works and why girls like your bio.

Ask more questions about the bio

If she asks more questions about a specific section of your bio, she’s hooked.

Keep feeding her tiny bits of info and invite her out to give her the full story.

Final Thoughts

Follow these tips and you are going to have one of the best bios on the app.

Combine the great bio with pictures, and your profile is going to be unstoppable.
