SUMMARY

I have been on Tinder, and I can tell you from experience, it is a mind-blowing experience.

I am going to give insights on how to go about setting up a perfect profile when dealing with the dating apps.

Online dating has taken over the dating world. People no longer meet on the streets but rather through an app. In Kenya, most people are familiar with a dating app named Tinder. It is so popular among youths. So, how do you succeed in this game of swiping left or right?

I have been on Tinder, and I can tell you from experience, it is a mind-blowing experience. You get to meet all kinds of people, specifically women, for my case, because I am a dude. I am going to give insights on how to go about setting up a perfect profile when dealing with the dating apps.

Before setting up an account, know exactly what you are looking for. Are you looking for a life partner, a hookup, or a mixture of both (if you know what I mean)? Knowing this will help you throughout the process of getting a woman or a man

The next step is the most interesting part-creating a profile. This is where most people go off. When you are filling in your details, state clearly what you are looking for and what baggage you are coming with. Baggage, in this sense, means the extra things you are carrying on your shoulder. For example, you might have a kid or two. Put it there when filling up the registration.

If you are looking for something casual, have a casual picture(s), but if you are looking for something long term like a lifelong partner, show your prospective suiters that you are serious about it. Post a picture of you well cleaned up. You can have a picture of you in a suit or something close to that.

The next is stating what you do. You attract women based on what you earn monthly/annually. All this can be seen by the job title you have. According to a study by Dr. David Ludden, men making more money attract more women. This is especially when women are looking to settle and get married. They go for rich men.

A common misconception is that the more educated you are; the more women you will attract. It is a two-sided coin. It is true to some extent, because the more educated you are, the higher pay you get. At the same time, you can be educated but still earn peanuts. Education is not a huge factor on the dating app, but it can add you points.

After creating a perfect profile, we are ready to roll. Let us go get your dream girl!
