Tinder in Frankfurt: 5 Reasons Your Photos Are the Most Important to Get Matches

Photo by Eye for Ebony

Getting tinder matches in Frankfurt can be tricky. The city is huge which naturally means that there is a lot of competition. Generally, it is difficult to get tinder matches in big cities as there is a more diverse selection. The attractive profiles usually have no problem becoming matches, while the others are typically ignored. There is, however, a secret to be in the more desired side of the spectrum of the app and that is your tinder photo.

1. First impressions will decide how often you match

Though we are constantly told not to judge a book by it’s cover, it is hard not to do so whenever using a dating app. Swiping right or left is usually done in seconds and if your tinder profile photo does not impress at first glance, you will likely be swiped left. Your tinder photo needs to stand out enough to be seen, but not look too unnatural. Think of this like skimming through Netflix and deciding which show to watch next. A series with a good-looking thumbnail will impress you differently than one with lower quality and poor design.

2. People swipe quickly so they will make their decision based on the photo

As stated above, the app is fast paced. Tinder is basically selecting someone based on their profile picture. Of course, the conversations you have going on is what that creates the chemistry, but you need to have a match first.

3. Personality in your photos is what creates a connection

Out of all the other profiles you want yours to stand out, be authentic and show your personality. Obviously, you would more likely approach a friendly looking person than someone with a stoic expression on the street. This applies to your profile as well. An authentic picture will establish a connection to your match before writing them. If you’re unsure of what an authentic picture should look like, you can take a look at our tips for do’s & don’t in dating profiles.

4. Looking attractive is super important

We all know that not everyone is equally blessed with good looks. Unfortunately, there is a bigger chance that someone swipes right if they find you attractive than basing their decisions on your personality. Tinder limits what extent you can showcase your personality down to a small bio text. To get to know your personality, you will have to match first. Good news is that beauty is subjective and different for everyone. However, there are basics to enhance your features, which brings us to the last and most important fact.   

5. The right lighting and angles do matter, trust me

Your profile picture is like a business card. People do a double-take if the card is professional-looking. Naturally, we find pictures with better quality much more appealing. It doesn’t matter if you’re the most attractive person around the block, if your picture is taken in a dark room, it won’t do you any favors. Even if you did find good lighting, it would still be lacking if the angles weren’t flattering you. A professional taken photo can do wonders for your profile. With the right angles and lighting, your best assets can be highlighted effortlessly in a tinder photo. A photographer with a keen eye can bring out the best of you in one photo for your profile.

Tinder in Berlin #8: 5 Incredible Tips That Actually Help You Find Dates

By Sophia Isabella

Dating life with Tinder in Berlin doesn’t have the best reputation. It is difficult to find dates on your own. You’re isolated within your work-space or studies, especially during the time of social-distancing, and dating your colleagues might be a little awkward. 

Finding dates doesn’t have to be difficult though, there is hope for all the lonely hearts. In the age of social media and dating apps, such as Tinder, OkCupid, Bumble and other dating platforms, you will find it easier than ever before to find dates. These tips will help you find your perfect match on Tinder in Berlin without even leaving the comfort of your home.

1. Find the best dating app to meet interesting women on Tinder in Berlin

To find a date that matches you, you’ll have to find the right-tailored app. Tinder is popular, as is Bumble and OkCupid. Tinder in Berlin is especially booming at the moment. The chances of finding someone right for you are higher now than ever before. These apps do however usually target younger adults and students. If you’re interested in dates that target a more mature audience, you might want to look at dating platforms such as Parship, ElitePartner or Lovoo. But don’t worry, anyone can make a Tinder profile as the range of people is expanding every day as its app grows in popularity.

2. Create a Tinder profile that shows your personality

You can’t leave you profile blank. Your potential dates will look at not just your picture, but also at your profile to see if you have anything in common. An emoji-filled description and clichés are a no go. You want to stand out and have a profile with; “Looking for my next true love. Is it you?”. It won’t get you far. 

Share a little bit about yourself, but not too much. Keep it short, specific and briefly describe your hobbies, work and likes. Be witty and yourself. Your profile can also be an icebreaker, which leads to my next tip.

3. Create a connection by messaging them first

Don’t be shy and write a potential date first. It shows that you’re confident and your match might be keyboard shy. Address their profile and do not send them just a “hi” message. If their profile displays any sports, ask them about it. If they have a pet on their picture, ask them what its name is. Address anything on the picture that might have caught your attention.

4. Get a second opinion from your Berlin friends on your Tinder or Bumble profile

Your friends might see something that your profile that lacks. After all, your friends know you better than you know yourself. You might also downplay your qualities without knowing or you forgot an important detail about yourself. Friends also tend to know what makes you different from others, which will make you stand out amongst the other fishes in the sea on Tinder in Berlin.

5. Get more matches with your attractive profile pictures

This is the most important tip out of them all. Your profile picture is like a business card, you need to invest in a good one so that it catches the interest of potential dates. You want to make a good impression because they will see your face first. You can be handsome or beautiful, but with bad lightning and awkward posing you’ll have a hard time getting any matches (see our article on Do’s and Don’ts in Profiles). This also goes the other way around. Professional photoshoots will do wonders to one’s features and we can help you with that one easily. With our help, you’ll get attention-grabbing and professionally looking photos in one session without looking staged. Just reach out to us and you will find dates in no time.

Tinder in Munich #1: 5 Steps to Succeed on Dating Apps

Photo by Kinga Cichewicz

Online dating is an open-world for everyone. You just have to set up an account, and pick your dream partner. Unfortunately, it’s not as easy as that. Just a normal dating profile won’t get you very far, but the way you show yourself is what determines your success.

Munich is the third-largest city in Germany with over 1.5 million inhabitants, half are women. But why can many guys not find their partner on dating apps in this city?

So, now please respond to these questions: “Did you make a strategy for online dating or are you just using it without thought?” and “What do you think makes an attractive dating profile?” Let us reveal for you 5 indispensable steps to succeed with your dating profile.

1.Clarify your purpose

There are many dating programs like Tinder, OkCupid, eDarling or Badoo. You can of course use them for any purpose, but each platform works out better for a specific aim.

For casual hook ups, you can go ahead with Tinder, OkCupid or Happn. In contrast you should come across with several professional programs like eDarling or Parship if you are looking for a serious partner.

2.Set up your preferences

After specifying your purpose for online dating, download the apps and start your journey. Firstly, you need to determine what you are looking for regarding location, age, or interest.

Unfortunately not all of programs provide searching preferences for free. On Tinder you can only adjust age and gender with the free version. On OkCupid you have one more function free of charge, which is location.

For a big city with over 1.5 million people, dating in Munich is not impossible if you only use the free functions on apps. But if you are looking for people with similar interests, let’s go on with the next steps.

3.Highlight your qualities

If you are looking for dating in Munich, knowledge of German can be an advantage, because 79 percent of inhabitants in this city are German, according to the population report from City Population.

But if your German is bad, don’t worry, you always have a chance. Actually Munich is a modern city with many foreigners, international companies, and Munich girls speak English pretty well.

Don’t waste time pretending to be someone who you are not. Just be yourself, and show them who you are. Everybody has their own taste, some people like serious guys, others go with humorous minds. What is your speciality? Ask yourself this question and light it up.

4.Sell your compelling story

Biography is an indispensable part of your profile, but have you designed it well yet? Actually many guys have no idea for their bio and they just write it down quickly. For example: “I am Luca, 28. I am a funny guy”. Yawn.

Biography is an ideal space for showing who you are and connecting with people who are truly good matches to you. You have 500 characters for bio on Tinder, don’t waste it.

As promised in step 2, now we will show you how to get attention from people who have the same interests as you. You can basically write about your hobbies like: “I love traveling, reading and hiking”. It’s sufficient, but not interesting. Why don’t you try with a list of favourites? 

My Favourite…

Book: “40 Rules of Love” by Elif Shafak

Destination: Neuschwanstein Castle, Bayern, Germany

Drink: Beer

Fest: Oktoberfest

Or Fun Facts about yourself

“I am an attractive guy” – No, don’t listen to me, this is the truth from my friends.

Here’s a no fuss profile hack to try out for your own one: Let’s think of something special for your story. If you have a thirst for ideas, we will provide you some cool samples in the next blogs.

5.Show your exceptional photos

Last but most importantly, it’s about your photos. Living in a big city, do you think that you have many dating chances in Munich? Actually we need to face up to a reality: the more people the more challenging. The people, who make the best impression, will stand on top.

Tinder allows you to display up to six pictures. Do you have six perfect photos of yourself?

If you cannot make your profile stand out, getting dates will be a hard. First impressions are always very crucial, because in fact no one opens your biography if they’re not attracted by your photos. And that is reason why you should not underestimate the power of your pics. Don’t upload a photo that is blurry or boring.
