TIN­DER SWIPE HYPE

SHAKE OFF DAT­ING FA­TIGUE AND NERVES WITH THESE TIN­DER TIPS

Cosmopolitan (Australia) - - Sex & Relationships -

YOU WANT: A date, who’s in­ter­ested in you, your look and more im­por­tantly, your vibe.

YOU NEED: To make sure your dis­play photo is not a group one. It’s easy to con­fuse a po­ten­tial date with mul­ti­ple faces, es­pe­cially if all your friends look alike. En­sure your first photo ex­presses who you are – avoid any LinkedIn-style head­shots. YOU WANT: Some­thing more than a ‘tex­ta­tion­ship’ – you want an ac­tual re­la­tion­ship.

YOU NEED: To make sure you’re be­ing your­self. If you want your match to turn into a din­ner date or rom­com movie night, you have to keep your con­ver­sa­tion au­then­tic – your ban­ter and chem­istry will flow much bet­ter IRL, mak­ing for a more com­fort­able date. YOU WANT: To avoid be­ing ghosted or bread­crumbed.

YOU NEED: To re­alise that you can’t. Be­ing re­al­is­tic and open to a few duds along the way will only make it feel so much bet­ter when you swipe right on The One. Think of it as the per­fect prac­tise to sift­ing through what will in­evitably be a whole lot of left swip­ing. You can only be scared by a ghost once, right?!
