1.Nail that opening line
While you might be tempted to message a simple ‘Hey’ or ‘How are you?’, Ms. Pambakian advises that users should send more focused opening lines.
She explained: “There is no magic opening line that works best, but the most successful way for a Tinder match to get my attention is by pointing out something in my profile that sparked their interest - whether it's my job, where I went to school, or my (adorable) dog Bijou.
"Plus, you can use the GIF function, that's a really fun way to show your personality and sense of humor.”
2. Make sure your profile has a bio
Knowing what to write in your bio can be tricky, but don’t just miss it altogether.
Ms. Pambakian said: “Never skip the bio section! It's your opportunity to tell your potential matches more about yourself - your hobbies, your interests, what you're looking for.
“But don't go overboard. We have a 500-character limit for a reason - no one wants to read a novel when swiping on profiles.”
3. Connect to your Instagram
Tinder currently limits users to six photos on their profile, but there’s an easy way to show dates more about you.
“Connecting Instagram also automatically keeps your profile fresh and up-to-date without you having to do it manually."
4. Make sure you’re online on Sunday night
The best time to bag a date is on a Sunday night, according to Ms. Pambakian.
She said: “We've found most users are most active on Sunday evenings.
"But I personally just make it work for me and use it whenever I get some downtime at the office or with friends - and especially when I'm traveling.”
5. Don’t give your number out too quickly
If you’re really hitting it off with someone on the app, you might be tempted to give your number out - but don’t be too hasty.
Ms. Pambakian said: “I've heard of couples who fell in "love at first swipe" with the first person they matched with on Tinder and exchanged numbers right away, but I think it's worth chatting within the app until you're sure you are interested in meeting them.
"You're able to unmatch with the other person on the app if you decide you're no longer interested, which is a lot easier than telling them to lose your number!”
6. Ditch the selfies!
Make sure your pictures are actually representative of you, and not just boring selfies.
Ms. Pambakian advised: “Your pictures should give others a sense of your personality, hobbies, and interests. If you like to go skiing or hiking, show it. If you're kind of a goofball, show it. We all deserve to be liked for who we really are.”
