Struggling to get matches on Tinder? I know – it’s frustrating. Literally all you want to do is match with a few women and start chatting so that you can see where things go.
And who knows, you might even get a date.
But it all starts with a match. Before that, however, you need to nail your dating profile.
You’ve probably been told by your mates that you’re a good guy – you’re decent looking, you’re funny and you’re great to be around. But how do you translate all this into a compact profile that girls will swipe right for?
It’s not always so easy but there are guys out there who are finessing Tinder. In this article, I’m going to show you how they do it by revealing 20 amazing Tinder profile examples for men that women LOVE to swipe right for.
Here are 20 Tinder profile examples for men, including some advice to help you write your dating profile:
20 Tinder Profile Examples for Men
“Getting lost in the supermarket as a child was scarring, mama would call out my name and everyone would call out Polo, drowning out my pleas for help.”
“Cinemas enthusiast, considerably artist. Anyway, let’s grab some story and tell me your coffee, maybe?”
“I’ve always wanted to be 6 feet tall. I made it to 5’10” and a half but god had other plans for the last 1.5 inches.”
“originally from the Dirty T, just moved to Phoenix. Looking for a good time not a long time.
* I’m not saying I’m a procrastinator, but I’ll just finish my bio tomorrow.”
Tip: Be Funny
Being funny isn’t easy, but if you’re a naturally funny guy and people are always telling you you make them laugh, it would be SUCH a waste if you weren’t funny in your Tinder bio. These are all good examples.
Ryan is just the right kind of cheeky without being rude; Wiryawan is complementing his humour with a seriously sultry pic, while Marco is just being goofy. It all works because there’s no girl alive that doesn’t love a man who can make her laugh.
The thing is that you should ONLY be funny in your bio if you’re a genuinely funny person. If you’re not, your attempt at humour will probably backfire and you’ll find it hard to get matches. You can use these profiles as inspiration but the main thing to remember is to be confident with your sense of humour but to always make yourself the butt of any joke you make.

“Majoring in Biochemistry and graduating in June as long as senioritis doesn’t get the best of me.”
“I like my women like I like my whiskey: Single, smooth and getting me into trouble.”
“Love the thrill of the fight and the thrill of deciding what to message first.”
Tip: Add Animals To Your Pics
The amount of times I’ve seen a girl write “must love dogs” on her profile is crazy. For real. Look, everyone likes animals but women tend to be more expressive about it. And they go absolutely gaga when they see a cute animal pic on Tinder.
I’ve run the numbers on this myself. I uploaded pics of me without animals and did some swiping. The results were okay.
Then, I kept my bio the exact same but added a new profile pic – me holding my sister’s dog.
The matches flooded in.
Of course, both your pics and your bio has to be right for this to work. If you’re going to use animal pics, make sure they’re natural and make sure they’re complemented by a solid bio – and preferably one that doesn’t say ‘I love animals.’ We can see you love animals.
I like Marshall’s bio. He’s making a joke, he’s being a bit naughty and his pic is the kind of cute dog pic that makes women cup their face with their hands and say “aww, that is so sweet!”
“I can name all the countries/capitals of the world … pop up and try me!
Fun facts, I’m Welsh , 6’3”, an award-winning composer, used to be an international racing driver and have an addiction for travelling to weird and wonderful places!
Boring stuff: Dentist with an interest in cosmetic/restorative surgery by day. Tooth fairy by night. (I look great in a tutu … trust)
Love to play soccer and basketball
Tacos + cuddling = perfect date
Please don’t make fun of how bad I am at Fortnite”
“Top 3% in the world at Car Soccer
Good at pretending I know what I’m doing
Master bio writer
Avid list maker.”
“Sum yourself up in 3 emojis
Winner of a giant fluffy unicorn.”
Tip: Create a “Fun Facts” Bio
A fun facts bio gives you the chance to flaunt your interests and showcase your achievements without being boring or self-obsessed.
Take a look at the way Ryan has done it. While he’s clearly showing off, he’s also challenging girls to “come and try me.” Girls love a challenge, even if it’s just for fun.
Moreover, whilst he’s showing off a bit, he’s clearly got things to show off about. If you’ve got achievements like “award-winning composer” in your arsenal, it’s well worth adding to your Tinder profile as it will help you to stand out.
Ryan then finishes off by keeping things real and showing girls that he’s human after all and totally relatable by listing the “boring stuff.”
Coby, meanwhile, takes the Fun Facts profile a bit less serious but it still works. He’s using the format to poke fun at himself while making the women laugh.
“Always thought I was going to be an astronaut or pilot, but sadly that didn’t work out. So instead I’m going to save the world.”
“Repelled down the side of a 40 story building for charity and didn’t pee my pants. Next on the bucket list is skydiving over the top of Tokyo. Yatzee.
Back in Japan in April.”
Tip: Find A Way To Draw Attention To Yourself
Just picture yourself swiping on Tinder. You swipe left, you swipe left and you swipe left once again. Because nothing is catching your attention tonight.
Except – hey, wait a minute! There’s a guy being mauled by a toy shark here!
Or how about this guy who’s clearly in some sort of band and who’s going skydiving over Tokyo?
And wow – what about this rocket scientist?!
If there’s something in your life that’s pretty damn amazing, make it the centrepiece of your profile like these guys did. The guy with the shark pic didn’t even have anything in his bio, and while I don’t usually recommend you leave your bio blank, his pic is so brilliant that he can probably just about get away with it.
I like the way Wessel draws attention to himself. He manages to show off whilst being hilarious and charming. Girls love that.
“Laugh, love. Live.
Also eat, always eating.
Let’s chat! X”
“Basic dude shit. Not looking for a hookup.
I’m about to get a fancy piece of paper to say I know things. And go work/travel for the rest of my life. What about you?”
“At the moment I’m a ski/snowboard instructor in flachau until late April.
Looking for some nice and interesting people.”
Tip: Flaunt Your Love Of Life
An easy way to get more matches is to show the women that you enjoy life. Check out Adam’s picture. He’s surrounded by a bevvy of beautiful people and he’s having a great time. He adds in his bio that he loves to laugh and live his life. This is what women are drawn to, especially in a Tinder profile.
And while Chris could probably find a better pic of him smiling, the backdrop is amazing. It shows Chris in his happy place and he clearly likes to get out and about and make the most of life.
Vincent, meanwhile, looks as laidback and in love with life as you can get. It’s the kind of aspirational “I wanna be there” image and bio that girls are attracted to on Tinder.
However, it’s important that you don’t go too far into frat boy territory with your “lover of life” theme. A lot of guys upload pics of themselves covered in foam on dance floors. It’s not an attractive look on a Tinder profile. If you’ve got a group pic of yourself having a good time with your mates like Adam, consider leading with that.
“Smart, funny and passionately curious. From tech to government policies to meatball subs, talk to me about anything. A good ice breaker could be to see who can down more tequila shots. Heard this was a good place to go, broke buying girls, food and drinks. Looking for a reason to delete this app.”
Tip: Show Your Passions
The above profile could probably do with some line breaks, but there’s nothing wrong with writing a wordier profile if that’s what you feel comfortable with. It gives you a chance to highlight your passions and write about the things that interest you, and which you hope to share with someone else.
“From Texas, moved to Germany
I can teach you how to ride a horse.”
“Intelligent typo and a fine gentleman, for sure.
Just came to Paris to explore the depths of local contemporary art.”
Tip: The “I’m New Here” Profile
Nope, you’re not a damsel in distress – you’re a man. But it’s still cool to play the needy “I’m new here – anyone care to show a guy around?” card on Tinder. It works like a charm if your photos are perfect because there’ll be plenty of women who’d love to spend the day being your tour guide, showing you around their city and introducing you to their favourite things.
Of course, this sort of profile only works if you’re truly new to a city or country. Don’t pretend!
The next step is for you to decide which type of profile you like best, before adapting it according to your own interests.
And, hey, if it doesn’t work straight off the bat – don’t panic. Be patient, make tweaks or try a new type of profile.
Whatever you do, make sure you use your best pics (ask a friend to help with this) and don’t be negative! Be fun, be smart – and be cool.
