To increase your chances of matching with someone, don’t be afraid to be your true self.

Here’s an idea of the kind of photos that work well:

  • Use your own pictures and let people see your face - there's nothing more alluring than a stranger's smile.
  • If you’re shy, go for a shot from behind. In our experience, accounts lacking genuine photos attract significantly less matches and get reported up to 3 times more often - which can lead to getting blocked.
  • Pictures that illustrate your personal interests and hobbies can help you Connect with more people.

Here’s how you might convey your unique personality in your profile:

  • In your About section, tell us what makes you special. An in-house study showed that members with completed About sections are much likelier to make matches.
  • Be open and precise about your interests and desires - remember, you’ll only attract what you’re looking for if you know what that is.
  • Don't be afraid to play around with your Search settings!

What’s best practice?

  • Be proactive and begin a conversation as soon as you match with someone new.
