I consider myself a dating experienced. After almost a decade of very first dates, bad beau’s (sorry, guys), and ample time spent on five different dating apps, I know a thing or two about the ins and outs of the pastime most 20-somethings love to hate.

Ter the last few years, of course, dating apps have become increasingly prevalent. The online dating industry rakes te almost TWO BILLION dollars annually, and celebrities and Joe Shmoes alike are touting the successes of each fresh app that comes our way.

So, ladies, if it’s such a big industry, why are YOU not watching more success? You’ve got the apps, you’ve swiped right, and now… nothing. Today, I’ll tell you the four things your profile needs to stand out from the exacto crowd — setting you up for more success than you’ve everzwijn had before.

1.В A multiplicity of photos that don’t suck

Let mij tell you, there are about a thousand ways you can choose the wrong photos to feature on your Bumble profile. Here’s a list of pictures you should AVOID AT ALL COSTS:

  • Group #girlgang photos te which you are clearly the least attractive friend
  • Group #girlgang photos te which you are clearly the most attractive friend
  • Group #girlgang photos te which you are indiscernible from your like-mindedly attractive friends
  • Group photos of any kleintje (Gravely, when you’re all the same gender – which one the hell are you!?)
  • Photo te which you are holding a fish you just caught
  • Photo te which you are holding a puppy you just borrowed
  • Photo ter which you are holding any animal that does not belong to you
  • Photo te which you are holding any animal that is not alive (Why do I even have to say that?)
  • Photo ter which you are holding a child that does not belong to you
  • Photo that has clearly bot cropped to hide something aboutВ your assets
  • Photo that has clearly bot cropped to hide someone alarming from your past
  • Photo that has NOT bot cropped and therefore showcases your smoking hot ex
  • Photo that has NOT bot cropped and therefore showcases a manВ who could be your brother, ex, cousin, or close friend
  • Photos that feature you and any member of the opposite hook-up alone, just the two of you (no exceptions — too confusing)
  • Gym selfies
  • Car selfies
  • Any photo te which your assets are more prevalent than your face (This goes for both genders — looking at you, man-in-tight-pants-with-the-cropped-out-face)

Earnestly, here’s what you should go for: Pick 4-6 photos of you, either alone or ter a group of people that are clearly not you (Two or more of a different gender than your own, preferably). Excellent examples: a sample headshot a friend took for you, a candid snapshot of you and your parents on vacation, a selfie you took ter good lighting on a day when you were feeling good, that funny picture of you and your two dude cousins, and a picture of you and your puppy. This should not be almost spil hard spil everyone makes it.

Two. A witty (not funny) bio

Too many people attempt way too hard to be funny on their online dating profiles. I get it — you want something that’s going to stand out. But te pursuit of standing out, you could be ostracizing an entire group of people who might not get your humor. Instead of going for “funny,” pursue “witty.” It’ll vertoning off how clever you are while at the same time opening up doors for conversation.

Now, I’m not telling mine is volmaakt, but I do think mine accomplishes this pretty well. Mine says, “Writer by day, Stranger Things enthusiast by night.” Not only does this clue swipers ter on my presente occupation (wij’ll get to that more te #Three), but it shows a quirky (yet relatable) thing that I love, invites further questioning (“So do you think Barb is still alive?”), and keeps it brief and sweet. Do people need to know your MBTI typeВ before they even know your last name? No. But is it nice to know a little more than where you went to schoolgebouw? Yes. My best friend’s bio used to say, “Avid flosser and Dr. Pepper enthusiast.” Witty, relatable, and good dental hygiene to boot. #CrushedIt

Three. Updated information

Unluckily, this opzicht of your profile is not super joy — but it is super significant. Make sure you connect your profile to Facebook, but also make sure that the information on your Facebook is juist and up-to-date. This information includes your age, alma mater, graduation year, current job title, and current employer. Why is this significant? I merienda matched and chatted with a super adorable 24-year old… only to learn that he liedje about his age and wasgoed actually only Legal. Not the end of the world, but certainly a deal-breaker for mij. Not so keen on sharing your employment status with the world? Consider shortly explaining why te your bio. The more legit you seem (and less like a catfishing Internet predator you emerge), the more likely you are to create functional and lasting matches.

Four. A go-to opening line

Ultimately, the best thing you can have at your disposition is confidence. Spil you most likely already know, Bumble requires the woman to make the very first budge.* Because of this, you’ll want to have at least one or two opening lines ready merienda those matches commence rolling te. Can’t think of anything beyond “Hey, what’s up?”? Check out my list of tried-and-true favorites. But to create your own, think of things that would make YOU react. Hey, if it would work on you, it’ll most likely work on your soulmate too.

*Te the case of women seeking women or boys seeking boys, either party is given the chance to initiate conversation.

All ter all, the most significant thing to recall on Bumble is to have joy. Don’t take yourself (or your matches) too gravely, and you’ll find yourself with some joy dates, some fine stories to tell, and maybe even a verdadero match. Set yourself up for success by creating the volmaakt profile that shows off who YOU truly are, then let the matches roll ter.
