#1: The self-cockblock in your Tinder about me (BIG MISTAKE!)
I’m going to show you the profile of an absolute stunner.
The kind of girl most guys would call a 9.
I right swiped her just yesterday to run a little experiment.
Here’s what her profile looked like:
I blurred out her face of course. You’ll have to trust me when I tell you when I say it’s a cute one.
But it’s not her photo I want to talk about.
Underneath her carefully selected photos, there’s a carefully written Tinder about me.
Let’s zoom in on that:
When I showed this profile to the guys of the TextGod team, their reaction was identical to mine.
Master degree holder
Alright, not really sure what that means but pretty cool I guess.
Cute, sounds feminine.
Alright she works out, dope.
At this point everyone I showed the profile too changed their tone of voice when reading her bio out loud. After boasting four times, people start to get annoyed with this text.
IQ 139, height 1.72 m
Is this some sort of joke?
Looking for a soulmate (aka the one who hates stupid hoes and respects real ladies as much as I do)
When her bio goes from ‘cool’ to ‘more issues than Vogue’ real quick.
My brain made an instant connection to this guy:
I have multiple awards that I achieved with my 147 IQ (certified genius by scientific standards)
(I know this screenshot seems like it can’t be real but sadly there’s whole collections of these. There’s hordes of niceguys that actually text like this.)
High IQ guys stating their IQ in their bio or texts, are like low IQ guys revving their engines on the street, thinking they are cool.
Anyway, I digress.
Back to this stunner with her Einstein brain.
Her bio SCREAMS insecurity.
No confident person that’s content with him- or herself feels the need to qualify like this. What is this person trying to prove?
Arguably a universal truth is:
If someone shows off their IQ out of the blue, they are most likely moronic and insecure.
(Besides, it has been proven that IQ is an inaccurate measure of intelligence because of the range and variety of mental skills people can have. The guy in the screenshot may have an IQ of 147, it seems like his EQ is close to 10.)
Goddamnit, I digress again. Where were we?
Oh yeah, this lady’s Tinder about me example screams insecurity.
And that’s exactly what the bios of many guys scream as well.
And people don’t want any of it.
Just like research showed us. Profiles with high levels of SSP (selective self-presentation) perform poorly in online dating.
Researchers expected that high SSP profiles and high warranting (proof to back up their achievements), would be the most popular on dating apps.
But researchers were wrong.
It was profiles with low SSP but high warranting that were most popular.
For example, you write a blog and you warrant it by linking to your blog.
Don’t brag about it, just state that what you write about and provide people with a link to your blog.
(Unfortunately for me, writing about Tinder and online dating advice has a tendency to backfire every now and then.)
#2: Tinder profile text: Student example
I’m going to show you another common mistake that costs men dates.
One you could be making too, and what you can do about it so you score way more matches.
Look at this bio that a reader submitted:
Wooh, that’s a lengthy m’fukkah.
Let’s go over it together, part by part.
When I was young, girls didn’t like when I pulled their hair… Funny how things change *emoji emoji*
Alright, not bad. Not sure if you’ve seen this before, but I have.
Nevertheless many girls on Tinder will be new to this line, and if so, it will probably will make them laugh.
On top of that, it’s a nice indirect way of sexualizing.
Tired of swiping left
With this part, Julian is playing hard to get. Girls aren’t really impressing him, and he’s about to get a thumb infection from swiping left so much.
✅Very much into personal development
He’s tall, he’s jacked, and his brain is jacked too. Alright…
He links his Instagram, which is packed with pics of him doing all sorts of sports. Plus some scenery shots.
Linking your Instagram can be one of the smartest things to do. If you have quality content, then she can browse through at heart’s desire. Without you being a silly tryhard, uploading all the photos to your dating profile, doing your very best to look super cool.
No, not a catfish. (As far as I know)
A variant of his “Tired of swiping left”, but a little different.
He is pretty much saying “Hey, I know this looks to good to be true, but it IS true. I exist.”
According to scientific research there is a 90% chance that the sole reason you are here on Tinder, is for the sake of emotional confirmation. In that particular case, there is a 99% chance we won’t match anyway
What do you think of this bio, my dear reader?
Average like the size of coach Dan’s donger?
A Tinder about me section like this is… Overkill.
It’s like Julian picked all sorts of things he deemed noteworthy and then threw them on one big pile, hoping that any form of cohesion is irrelevant.
He combines a funny bio, with an arrogant bio, with some factual info about himself (Don’t. Fucking. Do this. More on this shameful tactic later in the article.), with some random fact about online dating.
I guess had a reason to add this random fact to his bio. But I don’t really see what it is. Maybe he is filtering out the ladies that are actually looking to meet up?
What you can’t see in this article, is Julian’s photos, where the trend continues. You can see a breakdown of 3 Tinder about me ideas in this video I made:
He has some good photos, but filled all 9 slots with pictures of him looking cool.
One slot was filled with the hair pulling line in the form of a meme. Overkill.
The thing is, there’s great stuff in his bio. We just need to cut most of it and pick one element.
He could just keep the hair pulling joke.
This combined with a couple solid Tinder photos and his IG linked, would make a solid profile. A profile that targets girls looking for some fun.
Or he could share the scientific fact, and add a call to action to it.
“Swipe right if you’re actually looking for something serious.”
That would make his profile more appealing for ladies on the lookout for love.

#3: Good Tinder about me for guys (My first killer bio ever)
It’s no secret to TextGod readers that I was a virgin until I was 22, almost 23.
And maybe you’ve already heard that around the time Tinder gained popularity, my lay count grew faster than a voyeurist’s shlong at a nude beach.
It all started when in 2013 I traveled to the United States of America. Pasadena, Los Angeles to be more exact.
Tinder was new, but it was already a hot topic in the States.
Some girls I met showed the app to my friend and I.
All excited, we instantly made a profile with their help.
My friend had always been the man in high school. He was the real life version of the online Chad.
If you’re familiar with the meme, then you can imagine what we were like.
The Virgin was all me, except for the small penis. And I never wore New Balance shoes.
My friend was the Chad alright. He even had the blondish hair and the blue eyes. He was also genetically muscular and could bench more than the average gym rat, without training.
When our female friends browsed through out photos to set up the Tinder profile, it got confronting for me.
His profile was an instant hit.
My profile was uhm… instant shit.
“You look better in real life than on your photos!” The girls agreed.
(My first Tinder date wasn’t anything to write home about)
“GREAT STORY LOUIS, NOW HELP ME GET LAID FROM TINDER, VIRGINBOY!”
Oh apologies, great sir. Let me get straight to the point.
When I got back to Belgium, I visited my parents.
I told my mom about the Tinder app and that the girls said I looked better in real life.
And my mom did what moms are supposed to do, she said:
“Louis, you’re always beautiful.”
And that helped me.
Because it became my first successful Tinder bio.
Here’s what I wrote:
“According to my friends I’m more beautiful in real life, but my mom says I’m always beautiful.”
And my god, did my matches increase.
And I got opened every now and then too!
What this bio sort of did, is something Andy High from University of Iowa explains here:
“You want to balance all that is wonderful about yourself with some things that aren’t negative, but more humble or realistic about yourself.”
And here’s the kind of reactions I got with it:
What makes it extra legit, is that it was actually based on my life. It wasn’t just copy pasted from someone else.
This bio appealed to a broad audience, it didn’t target anyone is specific.
No category of girls got weeded out, and no category of girls was specifically addressed.
When sometimes, that’s exactly what you need to be doing…
#4: Best Tinder about me captions
In this tip you’ll learn something that people who are already in a relationship, often wish they had known.
Something that has a HUGE impact on how you will go about Tinder.
See, a good Tinder about me for guys has to do a couple things:
Make her laugh
Make it easy for her to comment on
But most of all, it needs to FILTER.
This is especially true if you live in a big city.
There are plenty of big cities with millions of people. And there’s consequences…
Long story short:
- Big city
- Lots of people
- Big Tinder dating pool
- A lot of competition
- Easy to be just ‘meh’ and swiped left
But it also means:
- Big city
- Lots of people
- Big Tinder dating pool
- More girls of the niche that is exactly your type
- You need to appeal to just them, with a niche bio that filters out your exact type
Hear me out.
I firmly believe that selection is the most important part of a relationship.
(Which is incredibly painful to tell people who have been together for years already, but aren’t very happy with their relationship.)
Allow me to move this idea to the work floor.
Imagine you run your own company.
There’s a guy you woman you hired a while back.
But recently it came to your attention that she has a lazy and passive personality.
Suddenly transforming her into an active and proactive workers, is a tiring and time consuming job.
It would have been better to just hire a proactive person.
And it’s the same in relationships, or even with hook-ups!
As I’m writing this, the TextGod team and I are living in Vilnius for a month.
To uh… explore its culture.
Coach Dan came back from a date last night and was kind of frustrated at himself:
“Man… my first date of the evening was a girl I saw for the second time and she didn’t want to make out…”
He tells me.
“…So okay, that’s not going to be a hook up. Fine, now I know to stop texting her. But now she’s texting me!”
You could say this is a selection mistake by BOTH of them. Because BOTH of them have wasted their most precious resource: time.
Dan was looking for a quick love affair.
His date was looking for a serious relationship.
This may sound cruel, but it’s the harsh reality for many people on Tinder.
Of course, a hookup sometimes turns into a beautiful, long lasting marriage. And a relationship type sometimes just wants a one night stand… But those make up only a small percentage of the overall picture.
Don’t go writing a party bio when you’re looking for arty.
Don’t expect to get laid on Tinder tonight when your profile has a photo of you cuddling a dog, you cuddling your baby cousin, and some motivational quote about achieving goals.
Know what you’re looking for, and then tailor your Tinder about me to attract precisely your type.
#5: Steal my profile text
For you I added a video to share more Tinder tips in this article.
In the following video I reveal my niche Tinder about me.
It’s very useful to attract exactly your type on any dating app.
Check it out now:
#6: Five funny Tinder about me examples
Time for some funny Tinder about me ideas for you!
Over the years, these lines have become property of the interweb, so copy and steal like there’s no tomorrow.
I’ll throw them on your screen in text bubbles, because that looks cooler than normal text.
This one is fun when you’re leaning more towards sexual encounters:
*checks poorly scribbled notes*
If you want to make it REALLY clear you’re not looking for anything serious, try this one:
If you’re optimistic and plan on meeting her parents:
I confront you, “young lady why are you on Tinder?” You’re now grounded.
Ever seen the good ol’ Old Spice ad? Or all of them?
This bio parodies the original:
Look at the last guy you matched, now back to me, now back to the last guy you matched, now back to me. Sadly, he isn’t me, but if he stopped leaving his bio blank, and had better pictures, he could be like me. Look down, back up, where are you? You’re on tinder with the man of your dreams. What’s in your hand, back to me. It’s a pizza with your favorite toppings on it. Look again, the pizza is now your favorite dog. Anything’s possible when you match me on Tinder.
This is how you write a good Tinder about me as a guy. Don’t be too original, but in stead try to remix something funny that already exists like the above commercial. You can also rewrite one of my other examples to a profile description that fits your personality.
Looking for something possibly serious while showing her you got mad kitchen skills?
Made dinner for two. Ate both.
If you want more where this came from, then by all means, check my Funny Tinder bio examples.
#7: Tell her the story that has a *happy ending*
You’re looking for a girlfriend.
You’re absolutely done with sleeping around.
But at the same time you have some trust issues. Because your last girlfriend cheated on you.
Not the most pleasant of experiences.
Anyway, you’ve partly recovered and you want to head out again.
With new courage you try out some dating apps.
Here’s a quite common Tinder about me used by people looking for Trüe Lövë:
Swipe left if you’re looking for sex.
Looking for someone who wants to build something meaningful together
I miss cuddling in front of a movie, doing silly things together, and laughing uncontrollably with someone I love.
I made this a quite extreme example, but I’ve seen variants of all sentences in plenty of bios. And yes, usually it’s women with a bio description like this.
But not always.
What these people don’t always realize is that this Tinder about me is SCARY. AS. HELL.
The amount of people you shoo off with this, is HUGE.
And if you find someone, he or she is probably pretty damn scarred by previous relationships. Or has been very lonely for a very long time.
Why not make it playful?
Why not show that you can still laugh?
Instead of saying “laughing uncontrollably with someone I love”, show them you can make them laugh!
Instead of bringing your message across like the most strict teacher, bring it with joy.
That’s just what Larry did:
They say laughing at your misery is half the cure. Or something.
I don’t know if people actually say that.
But it definitely shows that you can still smile after some bad stuff went down.
Fall down 7, stand up 69.
Larry tells what happened to him with a little story.
He doesn’t just state bare facts.
And guess who’s bio is going to have the most fruitful harvest?
The first person is probably still bitterly looking.
While Larry… well have a look for yourself:
Damn, Larry, that’s some serious harvest. Leave some for the rest of us.
Now let’s have a look at a lady doing something similar to Larry, but she’s looking for the opposite of him.
#8: Give your photos some context (Larry’s opposite)
Looking for quick hookups?
Not into all that lovey dovey shit?
Alrighty, then this one’s for you
And we’re going to do this one quickly.
In the last tip Larry was looking for a relationship.
The girl from this tip, let’s call her Nancy, wants FUN and she wants it NOW.
She can’t just go swiping with a bio that says:
I just want the D and I want it asap. Swipe right for some quality sex.
…Wait no, she can.
She’s a girl. With a bio like that she could break the world record of most sexual partners in one day.
But you, my dear reader, you can’t.
You carry the curse of the donger.
You have to actually put in effort if you want your tongue to spell out the alphabet right on her princess parts.
So instead, a funny profile text example for guys, would be similar to this:
Looking dude that’s willing to let me hang out of the window of his car while I grab traffic cones from the road with my mouth.
Does that sound like someone looking to get married ASAP?
I mean, she doesn’t own a car since she wants to be in yours. So she’s probably not very career oriented at the moment.
And she wants to pick up TRAFFIC CONES WITH HER MOUTH.
Is it me or does that sound a heluvva lot like someone that’s looking to deep-throat your shlongadong?
Anyway, you get my point.
Be funny about your quest for nightly adventures.
You’ll be surprised how well women can react to them.
#9: How to make your current Tinder about me better
I’m going to look at a VERY common bio with you right now, and make it 10 times better on the spot.
The type of bio that I see over and over and over again.
It’s the dreaded list bio.
Even worse: the factual list bio.
You’ve seen them on Tinder yourself, because girls have them too!
And after just doing a couple swipes now, we have a winner!
A quick way to greatly increase this profile’s attractiveness, is by making the list more specific.
She says she likes music, coffee, sense of humor, …
Uhm ok. So you like humans?
Everyone likes music, laughing, friends, and having a good time.
She made some items in her list a bit more specific. Good!
Bubbly drinks, Berlin vibes, and fashion magazines. Although I don’t think she’s going to find many men with subscriptions to fashion magazines.
Do you remember the insecure girl from the start of this article?
Let’s finish this article with her as well. So we have a nice complete circle.
Master’s degree holder
IQ 139, height 1.72 m
Looking for a soulmate (aka the one who hates stupid hoes and respects real ladies as much as I do)
Ouch, that last line… Who hurt you?
Anyway, let’s see if we can turn this bragfest into something a bit more specific.
Let’s rewrite this terrible about me into something you can use.
Master in public law
Samba and rumba dancer (currently in between stepping on people’s toes and actually dancing)
Powerlifting (don’t you dare swipe me if you crossfit)
Due to the powerlifting I’m on a strict diet. Anything with hookups in it ruins my gains. Sorry guys.
Now this bio has some filters in it (flashback to tip #4), it doesn’t scream “HEY, I AM INSECURE AS HELL” anymore, it’s funny and will make some people laugh.
Oh, and it doesn’t call her sisters from other misters “stupid hoes” anymore.
(I respect you, m’ladies. Feel free to thank me in my Instagram DMs)
