Tinder Unveils A List Of Its Most Swiped-Right Members
I'm sure many of you think you're a huge hit on Tinder, having written yourself a witty bio and uploaded a carefully curated selection of photos that show you're an unmissable right-swipe. You've even slipped in that picture of you with your mum's dog, haven't you? Sneaky, but smart.
While I don't dare question your dating prowess, sadly there's a select group of people who really can claim they're the top dogs, having been named Tinder's most successful members.
The dating app has now released the profiles of its most popular members aged 19-34, and they range from models and students through to songwriters and Prince Harry lookalikes.
This year's list has been compiled in collaboration with Cosmopolitan, who took it upon themselves to talk all things dating - including a few hints and tips for the rest of us mere mortals.
The most-fancied people include James, a 6ft 4 sports broadcaster from Worcester, who says he's 'commonly mistaken for Prince Harry'.
He reckons the best thing you can do to stand out on an app where it's all about first impressions is to crack out a 'big smile', but also says it's important to show off what you're into in your photos - be it music, sports, travelling or whatever.
Chanel is a 27-year-old singer from London, who's after someone with kind eyes. Her bio says she's an 'artist and music lover', but she also considers herself a bit of an adrenaline junkie, so would be up for a first date at Thorpe Park.
Then we've got 22-year-old Marley, a DJ from Swansea.
He advises: "Use all of the picture slots available and include a link to your Instagram. It's so easy to do, why wouldn't you?"
Next up is Elise, 19, who refers to herself as a 'sandwich artist'.
The food retail server from County Antrim believes confidence is key, and thinks small talk is 'the worst'.
Mia, a personal trainer from London, lets her pictures do all the talking for her, as controversially her bio says nothing.
The 21-year-old does, however, have a Spotify anthem listed: 'Caroline' by rapper Animé.
How about Ella-Morgan? She's a 25-year-old cosmetic surgery consultant from Bristol, whose bio says: "Proud transwoman. Judge me all you want, but I'm the nicest and funniest girl you'll ever meet. Yes, I've had my surgery!"
Or mechanical engineer, Liam, 23?
He's taken his dating global, recalling his best encounter in San Francisco: "A friend offered me two free tickets for a sunset dinner on a cruise ship - at first the girl I invited was hesitant and said her friends had warned her against going on a boat date with a stranger.
"I was like, 'Actually yeah, you're dead right. Fair enough!' but then she changed her mind and we had a great time."
We've also got 30-year-old marketing executive Jane, whose bio simply reads: "Sometimes I like yoga, sometimes I like wine."
I mean, fair dos.
Ali is a student, model and personal trainer from County Down.
At 5ft 10, her bio simply reads: "Probably taller than you."
Here's Adam, a songwriter from Cheltenham.
The 23-year-old says his best date was with a girl who worked at Longleat Safari Park, as she gave him a personal tour and let him feed some of the animals.
What makes him swipe left? He explains "I love fitness, so maybe people who aren't really into it, or anybody who comes across as closed-minded from their bio."
Well, there you go. Open your minds, guys.
And finally there's Marcus, who's gone for the exotic approach for his profile pic, with a sunny holiday snap.
The 6ft 3in student enjoys playing rugby, and admits he doesn't look at bios unless he matches with someone.
His advice? Play it cool. "Don't be so keen that you reply after ten seconds of matching," he says.
