Tinder is one of the most popular online dating platforms. Since every convenience is shifting to dating apps, so is companionship. A lot of users wonder how to find success with Tinder. Most men keep swiping right continuously with no results. In this article, we will explain how Tinder works and how you can succeed.
Tinder is a dating app available for both mobile and desktop users. This app allows you to match with a compatible partner after reading through their profiles and checking their pictures. If you like a person, swipe right to their profile; if you do not like the person, swipe left to their profile. If the other person swipes right to your profile, it will be a match.
Best Tinder Tips and Tricks
The sequence mentioned above might seem easy but brings rare results for men. The reason is that they do not understand the algorithm and end up getting their account shadowbanned. If you are a man using Tinder, once your account is shadowbanned, you won’t be informed about it. While you can use the app as usual, other users will not notice your profile. Try the following tricks to overcome this situation.
- Don’t swipe right every profile
- Note your criteria on a piece of paper and stick to it
- Check every profile in detail and don’t swipe quickly
- Communicate with every profile
- Add your Instagram account to Tinder
- Change your location
1] Don’t swipe right on every profile
Out of desperation, most men swipe right at every profile on Tinder, and they do it quickly. The app recognizes this and simply shadow-bans the account. So, keep a standard and only swipe right to profiles that you have a chance of matching with. Also, if you try to match with the better part of the hierarchy, it is obvious that you would have a rare chance.
2] Note your criteria on a piece of paper and stick to it
Just like most apps these days, Tinder uses artificial intelligence. The app tries to understand what you are trying to seek and only shows you results that are related. Now, if you swipe right randomly based on the profile picture only, then you will confuse the algorithm.
The best way to stick to your criteria is to note it on a piece of paper and compare them before swiping right. Eventually, you will be shown profiles of your choice and the people you are interested in will be shown your profile more often.
3] Check every profile in detail and don’t swipe quickly
When you swipe right (or left) quickly, it sends a signal to the app that you are hoarding profiles. In this case, Tinder will assume that you are not serious about the game and hide your profile. Stop at every profile and check the details. Then, check the pictures and decide whether to swipe right or left. This will give the correct signal to the application.
4] Communicate with every profile
Tinder is full of people who waste the time of other users by ghosting them out after matching. If you seek success on the application, please make sure to message every person you have matched with. The first message should not be a simple “Hi” or “Hey.” It is better to read their profiles and ask them something interesting or related as a conversation opener. The first message can make or break an interaction. Start by complimenting something about their profile. Follow that up with saying something that is unique about you and your interests.
5] Add your Instagram account to Tinder
A lot of people use filtered pictures on Tinder so the app gives higher value to those who add their Instagram profiles. Adding your Instagram profile would give a signal that you want the other person to know more about your life. It is a symbol of a genuine profile. Furthermore, many users might want to connect with you directly through Instagram instead of waiting for you to accept their request.
6] Change your location
Let’s face it. Every region has a desirability factor. You might not be desirable at the location you are currently at, however, when you shift to another location, your desirability score might increase. Try changing your location to increase your chances of matching with a suitable partner on the Tinder application.

Is Tinder safe?
Tinder has the option to verify profiles and places a blue checkbox next to those profiles. However, since you are meeting strangers, be sure of general safety precautions. Keep the first meeting at a public location. Connect with them on social media first since it will help you know whether they are genuine or not.
