Tinder Do’s and Don’ts: Be More Likely to Make A Tinder Match

Contributing Writer

Imagine having access to people your age, looking to date in your area, right in the palm of your hand. The app, Tinder, is becoming a popular way for college students to meet each other because of its easy accessibility.

Tinder is a free app that uses your phone’s location to match you with people near you. It was released in early 2012 and is known to be one of the first “swiping apps.”

According to the latest information on datingsitesreviews.com, there are 24 million users active on Tinder. Datingsitereviews.com also reports that men swipe “like” on a woman’s profile on average 46% of the time, while women only swipe right on average 14% of the time.

After interviewing more than two dozen Piedmont College students, all 12 of them had the Tinder app. Most of the students said only to have the app to cure boredom.

“I think that Tinder is just somewhere that people go when they’re bored,” junior mass communications major Haley Hall said.

In order to be successful in the Tinder world at Piedmont College, here are some popular tips that might help.

For men, do not have a selfie as the main picture on the profile. A third of the women in the interview said that was an automatic swipe left. In order to get more right swipes, the thing to do seems to be grow facial hair.

Twenty-five percent of Piedmont women that were interviewed said that they would swipe right for facial hair.

According to datingsitesreviews.com, women are more likely to swipe right when shown a man with well-groomed facial hair.

Eighty-five percent of the men interviewed said that a woman that appears to be in good physical shape will get an automatic swipe right.

Junior business management major Peyton Luken said that if the woman is attractive and doesn’t have any pictures of guys on her page, then he would swipe right.

Tinder recently came out with Tinder Plus in 2015. This includes features such as an undo button and an option that allows you to search outside your current geographical region.
