There are over 50 million users on Tinder. That’s a lot of fish swimming around looking for relationships & Tinder Hookups. To stand out from the crowd, you’re going to need to strategize.
The first thing you need to know is that on Tinder, your Tinder profile is everything. Since the Tinder bio is a very important part of your dating profile, then it’s a no-brainer that it needs to be good. Really good.
But, writing bio is so stressful, right?
Wrong! Writing your Tinder bio shouldn’t be as long -nor as stressful- as the process of writing a thesis.
This is just about people getting to know you and you getting to know people. I know sometimes it’s difficult to know what to put there and what to leave out, after all, the most likely thing is that no one will read if it’s longer than a small paragraph but you don’t want to seem like you don’t care.
Overall Goal of Your Tinder Bio:
Make it inviting. Remember, the idea is to get a reaction even before you guys are talking. So by giving information about yourself, she might see that you guys have something in common and she will be interested.
Seems like a lot? Worry not, here I’ll show you how to write a Tinder bio, and getting more right swipes and –surely- more matches. Let’s begin!
Best Tinder Bios Examples (2019):
1. Own Overconfidence
If you just can’t bring yourself to stoop to the level of self-deprecation on Tinder, then try swinging things in the opposite direction. Be overconfident—like, over the top arrogant. Trust me, it’s funny. And if you don’t believe me, just take it from Jared.
The less impressive the thing is that you’re over confident about (i.e. juggling, doing backflips, and winning over your mom’s affections), the funnier your bio will be. That’s the irony. Get it? Right.
2. The List
Now this is a good tinder bio template due to its simplicity. You can make a list in which you briefly index, let’s say, no more than 4 things about yourself.
An addendum to this is putting also a very small list of things you would like in a partner, however, this last one is to be used carefully.
Remember not to put anything too explicit or too conditional, you don’t want to come across as someone that’s down to swipe right to everything nor as someone with extremely high standards or taking it way too seriously.
3. A Single Story Comment
Uhhh, risky, but it can play out pretty well. The risk is that it doesn’t give out much more information other than the basics, but this can certainly work in your favor as long as you make it sassy or funny as it makes you interesting from the first read.
Alert: You definitely need to have good pictures if you’re going to go ahead with this one. That way your profile is way stronger and you can definitely jump in with this risky move.

4. Experiences list (With Twist)
Now this is a variation on the classic list and it’s a good one because it gives a lot of information but in a very dynamic way. A good way to do this is putting firsts and lasts.
For example, you can create a list of firsts in which you include your first job, first concert, first movie that made you cry.
On the other hand, you can put a list of last book you read, last show you binge-watched or last place you traveled to.
The pros of this approach is that it gives information about you that people might relate to or they can ask you about, which is great for conversation starters or to make sure the conversation doesn’t get stuck once you guys get to talking.
5. The choices (With Twist)
Now, this one is also great for giving –or asking- information in a dynamic way. You can put a set of choices and compare them to say which one you like best.
For example you can put “Cats or dogs? Cats” or “Beach or mountain? Mountain”. Another way to do this is with the < symbol. That way you can just put “Dogs < cats” and it might seem even cooler.
Whichever you prefer, it’s a good way to give information, conversation topics and you can even end it with a “and you” that can work wonders for your swipe-righting chances!

6. Pros and cons
This is a clever Tinder bio template. You can put a list of maximum 3 pros and 3 cons. Make the pros as truthful as possible and the cons as funny as you can.
That way she will be attracted to you for things that you actually can do or actually are and she will find you funny as well (and let’s be real, there’s no need to put the cons out there so soon!).
So again, you give information that can be used as a conversation starter and you let it show that you have a good sense of humor, and who doesn’t like to laugh?
A little of self-deprecating humor (and I do mean just a little) never hurt anyone. The thing about moving the spiders is adorable, and it gets him to start interacting with whomever is reading his bio even before they start talking.
The cons are all super acceptable, funny things. Again, there’s no need to be too literal and put your darkest and deepest secrets.
7. The joke
Now, don’t try this at home if you don’t have a great sense of humor! And I don’t mean that you think you are funny, unless all of your friends say that you’re a very funny guy, do not try this (and do not listen to them if they are all men, sorry, not sorry)! But if you are then you are in luck!
A good way to get attention is by making your bio an elaborate joke. It can be about how her dating you will be a huge favor –in a funny, not pitiable way- or about how you are a machine and explain your different attributes as if you were reading an instruction manual.
The options are endless for writing funny Tinder bios.

Did you know using emojis in Tinder bios leads to more matches? This fact was published on the dating app Clover’s data study. Now that you know about it, then whynot use it to your advantage?
The idea is simple here: Just use emojis defining yourself or something you’re interested in. null
9. Magazine “QUOTES”
While this one is a very funny approach it has gotten a little overused and might come across as unoriginal. So if you go for this one, make sure to put some personal info there.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, I’m referring to these bios in which you put “reviews” from famous outlets such as The New York Times or People magazine. A funny way to change this is involving the other person.
For example, “the best son-in-law I ever had”-Your mom. This is a way to show humor while also creating a first interaction with the person.
Now as you can see, the trick is to make it funny. You don’t want to put a bad review of yourself now, do you? And the trick is to make it as absurd as possible, you can even be a bit outrageous…like saying you are the Da Vinci of your generation. This shows a good sense of humor and might get you a lot of right swipes!

10. Be Original
Now, no one says that you need to do any of these. You can always write your 3-4 lines classic about how you like long walks at the beach, love dogs and are 6 foot tall, and you might get swiped right too.
But if you are not doing that well, you just got started or really, you just want to definitely stand from the crowd, the follow one of these tricks I just gave you and trust me, you won’t regret it.
And as always, a final reminder to enjoy the road. Have fun! The good thing about apps like Tinder is that you literally end up with millions of options where to choose from and you have the opportunity to explore your dating style and see which one fits you best.

11. Downplay Your Accomplishments
Even if you’re super successful, downplaying your accomplishments on Tinder can be a funny way to break the ice and make yourself more approachable.
Also, mentioning an accomplishment of any kind—no matter how small—opens up the potential for you and a match to find a common interest or talent. Science says that finding a commonality helps two people form bonds.
But if nothing else, it gives you something to chat about long enough to hold a decent conversation—which on Tinder can be an accomplishment all of its own!
For instance, what if this guy’s match really likes the game of Kahoot?
Maybe she’s won a game or two of her own! ???? It’s a silly thing to have in common, but trust me, it’s better than nothing. And it could be the start of a light-hearted conversation that could spark something more serious down the line.
12. Humble Brag
If you can find a humorous way to brag about your best qualities, then you’re golden on Tinder! No one likes a narcissist, but tooting your own horn is a little more acceptable if you go about it the right way.
For example, this dude cleverly boasts about being tall while making fun of girls who care about height—joke’s on you, girlfriend!
And who doesn’t like a tall dude? For real.
13. The Witty Bio
If you’ve got nothing else to work with, you can always get straight to the point and use a corny pick-up line or witty Tinder your bio. I mean, what’s stopping you aside from your own dignity and self-respect?
If you’re going to use this tactic, though, the rest of your profile needs to be on point (Read: You better be hot!).
14. Embrace Self-Deprecation
If you can embrace self-deprecation, you’ll have mastered the art of laughing at yourself. And as a result, others will laugh at you too. In a good way.
Our buddy Pearce (above) has definitely learned to self-deprecate, and he knocks it all the way out of the park with his funny Tinder bio.
Lucky for Pearce, there’s plenty of girls out there who prefer a laid-back guy with a dad bod over an uptight jerk with abs. There, I said it.
15. Pun It Up!
Puns are sure bets when it comes to using humor on Tinder. Even bad puns go over well, so you really can’t go wrong with it. It turns out that when it comes to puns, the extra cheesy ones are so bad, they’re actually funny.
If you can get an eye roll from a potential match, then you’re in there like swim wear, so to speak.
This girl Imani manages to score a Tinder trifecta by using a pun, a food reference, and a humble brag all at once.
In above example, There’s even the hint of a little something sexual here. Tantalizing, isn’t it. Anyone else feeling hungry?
16. The Happy Go Lucky
If there’s one thing you need to be in your bio (unless you’re a misanthropic goth looking for a fellow misanthropic goth) it’s happy.
In this example, this lady shows us that she’s great fun to be around. But she does more than that. Instead of saying “hey, look at me, I’m fun!” she quotes her mom who says she’s still a kid at heart who loves to have a good time.
17. Be Playful With What You’re Looking For
You know what’s boring and cliched on a dating profile? Taglines that look like this:
“Looking for my Prince Charming.”
Or ones that look like this:
“Looking for Mr Right.”
Instead, try what the girl above did when she put a humorous spin on what she’s looking for.
18. Show Your Manners
One thing I’ve noticed is really lacking on profiles are etiquette. You just don’t see them so much these days. Everyone is into pizza, Netflix and carbs. But who’s still into kindness, empathy and old fashioned chivalry?
The girl in the pic above is and adding a touch of compassion and big heartedness which is a great example.
19. Admit Your Flaws
I absolutely love this profile below because it’s unashamedly – and yet wittily – honest. The girl is upfront about her flaws. She can’t pack. She’s always early. She never edits what she says to people. She snorts when she laughs.
And you know what? That’s totally cool because with this kind of girl you get what you see. She won’t hold back.
A lot of guys (and women) respect that.
If you admit your flaws early but don’t moan about them and if you do it in an original way, what could have been a negative bio will actually catch the eye.
20. The Normal Profile
Before you go ahead and think your Tinder profile has to be 100% original and you’re worried about how you’re going to stand out from the crowd, I do want to point out that creating a profile that makes you look totally normal is cool, too.
See above. The girl here lists pretty generic interests. But the thing is, these are interests that connect people, especially on first dates. Pizza and wine followed by Netflix and some laughs? Sounds perfect.
Don’t worry about trying too hard all the time when – sometimes – simply being normal works just as well. Remember, people want to meet normal people! When you try too hard, you risk alienating yourself.
21. The Normal Profile With a Twist
Again, this is a normal profile that lists normal, everyday interests that many of us have. The catch here is that she’s used emojis to stand out a bit more. It works.
22. Emojis + Banter
Don’t simply append a cliched emoji to the end of a word all the time. Instead, be creative with how you use them – like the profile below.
The first line is hilarious and will attract attention. By using emojis like this, the lady in question is flaunting her humour and her creativity. It’s attractive.
Plus, her humour is pretty razor sharp. Winner.
23. The Damsel In Distress
The damsel in distress is the archetypal girl who needs a man to help her out. For this woman below, her needs begin right now. She doesn’t need a man to help her catch a spider or change a lightbulb (yet); she just needs him to help her come up with something funny for her profile.
It’s a great way to start a conversation and get the ball rolling and should invite some funny responses.
24. Show Ambition
There’s a lot to be said for any man or woman who has drive and personal and professional goals they’re working on. So why not talk about them in your bio?
If you’re not into the one night thing and if you’re looking for someone relaxed and ambitious, it’s important that you show this in your bio.
What I like about the above example is that the individual goes into a bit of detail, too, which lets you know they’re serious about what they want.
25. The Cute One liner bio
A lot of the time, one-line bios don’t work. Especially if they look like this: “Hey”
On the flip side, if you can be cute, engaging and even a bit funny with your one-liner, a one line bio can work.
The example above has a hip one-liner but it also has emojis, too. It’s short but it’s engaging and it lets us know that dogs mean a lot to her.

26. The Dreamer
“The Dreamer” is a profile that paints dreamy pictures in a persons mind.
Let’s say I’m a guy swiping until I come across the profile below. I see the words “Disney Land” and I’m picturing the vacation of a lifetime!
Planting certain images in a persons mind like this – dreamy images – is a great way to capture peoples imagination so that they swipe right and message you. It could be Disney Land, it could be the Grand Canyon – anything you can think of that is a little out of the ordinary.
27. Be Adventurous
If you’ve got an adventurous side, flaunt it on Tinder. It only takes a few words to get this across to people – just check the image below.
What’s good is if you can do what this lady has done – mix adventure with intellect (by getting ‘teacher’ in there she’s letting us know she has brains, too) – because that’s a surefire winner.
And if you hate wearing shoes? It’s always good to mention that as well 😉
28. Be Random
Random doesn’t always work because it can look a bit mixed up and unattractive. But if you get it right (like the guy below) it can work like a charm.
You could just follow this guys lead by listing your job, any cute pets you have before listing a couple of random facts about you. They just need to be interesting and worthy of starting a conversation. Adding a few emojis with them never goes amiss, too.
29. The “I Need a Tour Guide” Profile
This profile is almost cheating because it’s so easy to do. If you’re new to an area, all you need to say is “Hey, I’m new here, anyone fancy showing me around?!” and you’re guaranteed to get some matches.
It’s also nice if you can do what the guy below did by adding a bit more info about you, including where you’re from, as it helps to break the ice.
30. Positive Vibes
We all love positive people. So, a bio like above can be a great choice. You can use the same template but customise it based on your interests.
