This is your opportunity to give them a taste of your sass, your wit, your sense of humor, or even just some basic life facts.
Something like, “I’m a 30 year old social worker who likes tea, Tegan and Sara, and beer, and dislikes people who are rude to waitstaff,” is great, because you’re revealing a few aspects of your personality, and you’re making clear what your values are. Maybe you find a lot of emojis a really big turn on. If you disagree, that is great, because there are different strokes for different folks etc.
Remember, most of the time, the women seeing your profile on Tinder will not know anything about you (or will only know of you through your ex’s best friend, as is so often the case).Plus, suitors who don’t also like the iconic Canadian pop duo know to back the hell away. One of the most popular bios one of our staff members ever had was “I have had three burritos delivered to my house this week and it is Tuesday.” We don’t have scientific data to back this up, but lesbians love burritos. But a bio filled with love hearts, salsa girls, and wine glasses may make you appear a bit, how do we say this…. but, generally, from our extensive research, emojis are not exactly hot.It’s self-deprecating, which shows that you’re not a douche, and is a siren call to anyone else who likes having Mexican food brought to their door. The one thing emojis are really useful for though is making very obvious that you are a gay lady.Obviously, if you are confident enough to think, “If they don’t like me at my High School Musical, they can’t have me at my Erykah Badu,” good for you.But if you’re not that self-assured in your diverse musical taste, perhaps give the top tracks a good old switcheroo. Know that you are amazing and desirable no matter what your swipe to match ratio is.And if you think that you shouldn’t have to do that because people should know that being gay does not correlate to a particular aesthetic, then all power to you – you just might miss out on some matches. If you’re going to link your Tinder account with your Spotify, be wary.
