Hey ladies. So, you’ve signed up to a few dating apps. You’ve uploaded a few pics, but now comes the tricky bit: Writing out a dating profile that catches the eye. 

If you’ve decided to spread your bets among a variety of dating apps, it means you’re going to have to write out a few different profiles. There’s no one-size-fits-all solution here. What works on Tinder, for example, doesn’t necessarily work on OKCupid.

I know – it’s frustrating. 

*Puffs cheeks out with exhaustion*

There’s a lot of writing ahead of ya! 

The good news, however, is that once you’ve sorted your profiles out on each app and optimised them so that they hit the spot with the right kind of guy, you’ll be well on your way to making the kind of genuine connections you’re craving. It’s just going to take a little work, that’s all. Promise. 

In this article, I’m going to take a look at 20 dating profile examples for women. I’ll be picking four each from 5 different dating apps, and I’ll be explaining why these profiles work.

Tinder Profile Examples For Women

Tinder Profile Examples For Women

Ieva, 26

“Having a laugh and as much fun as physically possible is an absolute must for me!

Trying not to take myself too seriously, but do take what I do quite serious though 😉 

Channy, 29

“Good food

Red wine

Sausage dogs

Looking up every film on IMDB and refusing to watch anything below a 7.5

Crisp connoisseur”

Tinder Profile Examples For Women

Candace, 32

“Indie discos!

Looking for a nice chap to go looking for dogs in the park with, and who’s enthusiastically in favour of feminism.” 

Emma, 27

“Tall, pale and sarcastic. Southern pansy working my way North …

Attention span unsuitable for Netflix and chill. Looking for someone to join on my (mis) adventures.”

Tinder Takeaway:

What works: Short, slick, informative. Funny works too, as do emojis 

What doesn’t work: A long profile that discusses at length things like the meaning of life

Tinder is the dating app to join right now because it’s so busy with people looking to meet people. 

But because it’s so busy, you have to try really hard to ensure your profile appeals to the right people.

The four I’ve shown above have really cracked the Tinder code. None of them are taking themselves too seriously, they’re all short and sweet, and they all act as a ‘dog whistle’ to the right person. 

I’d say Ieva’s is an example of one that could run the risk of being too long, but look how cute and playful she makes it by adding the emoji’s at the top. Moreover, she tells us she doesn’t take herself too seriously, and she’s done a great job of giving insights into what she’s all about while still making her profile appear really cheery. 

Channy, on the other hand, has gone for bullet points, which is always a massive win on Tinder. 

Likewise, Emma knows what she’s looking for but she’s kept her profile slick and appealing by being so lighthearted. 

And this is really the thing with Tinder. If you can show people what you’re into and what you’re looking for without coming across as too serious, too confrontational or even too weird, you’re onto a winner. Mix humour with interests and you’re on your way. 

OkCupid Profile Examples For Women

okcupid Profile Examples For Women

Kate, 32

“I’m sarcastic and I’m never far away from a cheeky one liner

I do little dances sometimes 

I’m vegetarian, and I have been since I was 10. Not militant though. I’m like OG veggie, way before those tree huggers emerged so don’t expect any yoga or tie dye here.

I just love animalssss!

I like puns a lot.

I love theme parks and I could quite happily live in Disney World and never get bored.” 

Deidre, 30

“I am a huge baseball fan. 

Also enjoy hockey. 

I also really love Broadway musicals – definitely a total theatre nerd lol

Looking for a serious relationship but also open to friends – just important to have a connection and hopefully some common interests.” 

okcupid Profile Examples For Women

Emily, 31

“I’m like a tired feminist that has a really hard time trusting men at this point. Lulz, but seriously. I’m also really funny and smart and talented and caring and empathetic. I have really great hair and eyes. I love karaoke, I’m honest and straightforward. I’m not going to put up with bullshit. My family and friends are super important to me. I’m an artist and a caretaker and a really good baker. I love bad movies and true crime (like everybody else at this point). I’m a Capricorn. I work hard. I have a morbid sense of humour and can be very deadpan, I also really don’t like positivity.” 

Autumn, 24

“I’m pretty chill. Christian. Stars Wars is priority. Tattoos are cool. Talk to me about anything. I’m open and honest about everything. Nothing but love.

Let’s be friends.

What I’m doing with my life

I provide one-on-one instruction for people who have learning differences of disabilities. My students range between 6 years old and 60. It’s a new challenge everyday and keeps me on my toes, but I like it! 

I also volunteer at an animal shelter and at my church teaching English.” 

OkCupid Takeaway:

What works: Long profiles that go in-depth about who you are, what you want; your hopes and dreams 

What doesn’t work: Super short profiles 

Phew – these are long OkCupid profiles, right? Bet you’re worried about having to write yours now! 

The thing with OkCupid is that it gives you a lot of room to write as much as you want. I’m not sure if there’s a character limit but it often doesn’t seem like it, as you get some really lengthy bios on here. 

But that’s part of the magic here. People open up on OK Cupid; they’re real and honest, and this is really important. 

Take Emily’s profile. It’s long, it’s deep, and it tells us a LOT about her. She’s opening herself up here to the world and being honest and real about who she is, her scars, and what she wants going forward. She’s not always 100% positive, but OK Cupid allows a person to be fully human and to express themselves. 

Then you’ve got Kate, who’s also honest and real, too. And yet by focusing on what she loves, rather than what she hates, Kate is selling herself really well here. I always tell people to avoid profiles that focus on what you’re not looking for as they’re too negative and confrontational. Kate still throws some realness in there – she’s totally not into the whole yoga thing – but she’s focusing on her likes.

Ultimately, OK Cupid is like a more grown-up version of Tinder where you’re free to go into detail about your interests. Remember those pen pal sites you joined as a teenager where you’d talk and talk in your profile? It’s a bit like one of those. Just look into your heart, have a real think about who you are and what you want – and write. No one will judge you on this app. 

Match.com Profile Examples For Women

Match.Com Profile Examples For Women

Becky, 33

“I bought my first house last year, 3 guesses as to what I found in the attic … 

Avid reader, love the cinema and enjoy travelling to exotic places for adventures. Work probably a bit too much but love my job. Will volunteer for mostly everything and have a go at most things.” 

Ildy, 31

“I’ve moved to England for my work I’m passionate about. Used to live in 3 different countries before and speak 3 languages. 

Looking for my partner and best friend who I can be open and vulnerable with, have honesty and integrity, respect and empathy, load of affection and sense of humour between us.” 

Match.Com Profile Examples For Women

Merakinat, 25

“I love to travel and want to explore all corners of the world, so if you enjoy exploring new places then points to you!

At the same time, I’d say I’m humble and enjoy the simple things in life

Cosy pubs over clubs anytime, not your wild party type 

My ultimate goal in life is to turn my passions into a career and be my own boss, I call it a plan, not a dream ;” 

Anastacia, 27

“Hi, I am from Riga and have been living in Greater Manchester for the last 4 years. Love jazz, blues, classical music, theatre, a good book, walk in the park, coffee shops, city breaks. I enjoy cooking, especially baking (cakes!). Try to keep fit by doing pilates. As for my job – I’m a trainee teacher.” 

Match.com Takeaway:

What works: Long profiles that go in-depth about who you are, what you want; your hopes and dreams 

What doesn’t work: Super short profiles 

Match is a little less heavier than OK Cupid. It’s still important that you’re real and honest, but you don’t need to go into as much depth as you’re invited to on OK Cupid. Instead, it’s much better to just stick to your interests, hobbies and passions in your bio and save all the deep talk for when you connect with someone via messaging. 

All four profiles above do a good job of outlining the person’s interests without giving us a novel. As you can see, they’re not as slick or as witty as Tinder, but they’re also not as in-depth as OK Cupid. 

Just make sure to cover the things that are important to you but try to be fairly brief. Remember, to message anyone on Match, you have to subscribe. This means that people on here are taking dating seriously, so you don’t want to waste your time (or theirs) by not giving out enough information straight off the bat. 

That said, you don’t want to give everything away. Hold some things back because mystery is super attractive.

Bumble Profile Examples For Women

Bumble Profile Examples For Women

Joanna, 24

“Actress, art historian, gypsy woman. New York City native who isn’t afraid of nature.” 

Kathryn, 24 

“Just tryna get some free chipotle out of this.”

Bumble Profile Examples For Women

“Danielle, 24

“I love feminism, body positivity, John Oliver, plus size fashion and horror films.” 

Urshila, 23

“I’ll roast you but in a fun way.” 

You’d think it would be hard not to succeed on Bumble because you don’t have to write too much. But if you come across as arrogant or conceited, you’re out. 

Bumble Takeaway:

What works: Humour, snappy one-liners, emojis

What doesn’t work: Arrogance

It’s much better to play it safe by adding a cute one-liner that raises a giggle. 

That said, it’s also much better if you’re original – as opposed to using up some old cliche. And if you can’t think of a snappy one-liner, just do what Joanna and Danielle have done, and list a few of your interests.

Don’t go overboard with them, though. Stick to 2-3 interests, throw something funny and surprising in there, and use emojis. Just like Danielle has done. That’s pretty much the perfect Bumble cocktail right there. She transitions from feminism (pretty serious), then throws us a curveball in the form of horror films … before chucking in the knife emoji (totally non-serious).

Hinge Takeaway

What works: Unique answers

What doesn’t work: Untruths 

Hinge bills itself as the “dating app designed to be deleted.” As such, it’s meant to be taken pretty seriously by people who are looking to meet genuine people and see where things go.

For that reason alone you honestly can’t lose if you answer genuinely (Hinge gives you a series of prompts) and truthfully. 

Of course, it always helps if you can spice things up a bit with some humour. But if humour isn’t your forte, just answer truthfully and try to make sure your answers match up with your pics. What I mean by this is, if you answer a lot of questions about sports, it’d be great if your pics were sporty, too. 

It always helps to be a bit of a flirt or tease with some of your answers too, like Alijah. A bit of playfulness never goes amiss, but again it’s all about flaunting your personality. 

Key Takeaway

Overall, it doesn’t matter which dating app you use, the trick is to preserve the tone of the platform and keep it real. Be slick on Tinder, be more open on OK Cupid, showcase your interests on Match, be funny but candid on Bumble, and be truthful on Hinge. Just be you, be interesting, be fun.
