12 Hinge Profile Tips That Double Your Matches (Complete Guide)

You’re on Hinge and are pleasantly bewildered by all the cute women.

There’s just one problem…

You’re not matching the cute women.

In this article, I’ll give you all the Hinge profile tips you need to get more matches and dates than you thought was possible.

Important: Just letting you know I am currently letting guys use my Profile Checklist for free. It's a simple fill-in-the-blanks code that shows you what to change about your profile. It's the first step to getting all the matches you want. Get it here for free.

1. Stop the selfies

The photo that without a doubt raises more controversy than the authenticity of Kim Kardashian’s butt…

The selfie.

Good or bad?

As my lawyer would say, “Depends.”

Let’s do a quick breakdown of the selfie:

  • Camera phones have gotten much better, so the quality is usually good.
  • Selfies show off your looks.
  • Doesn’t give her an idea of what you’re like.
  • Can’t really be trusted because selfies get the most touch-ups.
  • Probably looks like it could be a stock photo.

Unless your profile solves negatives from above, the selfie is probably doing more harm than good.

2. Make it about you

If you make the next mistake, you’re almost forcing her to reject you.

That’s not just clickbait.

It’s the scientific truth.

Research shows that the more distracting your photo, the harder the brain has to work.

Why do we suddenly care about the brain’s needs?

Because the more your profile feels like a game of Where’s Waldo? the more likely she’ll swipe left.

Luckily, the opposite is also true.

The easier she can recognize you, the more attractive your photo.

3. Show off your eyes

Hiding your eyes is disastrous for your Hinge matches.


We study people’s eyes to judge their character and intentions.

That’s why we always want to talk face-to-face. And feel disrespected when we’re talking to someone who’s looking away.

Even 2-day-old infants prefer looking at faces that look back at them.

So eyes are hugely important to feel attracted to someone.

Which you can verify on sites like photofeeler.com.

The highest-rated dating photos always have a clear view of a person’s eyes.

That means:

  • No party masks
  • No sunglasses
  • No emo hair hiding half your face

4. Look straight into the lens

You may be the coolest dude that’s ever walked this earth, but she’ll still reject you if you make the next mistake.

Having a bad first profile photo.

If your first photo is weak, 90% of women will swipe you left.

Most women have enough options that she’s not too worried about rejecting a guy who may have better photos after the first.

How do you get a leading photo she instantly loves?

Science recommends you show her the upper half of your torso.

Like so:

This photo has gotten me countless likes for YEARS.

Note that I’m looking straight into the camera. Confirming the importance of eye contact we spoke about earlier.

And notice how the background is busy, but not distracting. That’s largely due to the blur. Which in turn makes me stand out.

If you use my photo as inspiration, your first photo will become almost impossible to reject.

Hopefully, your other photos are just as good.

5. Don’t be a stereotype

Of all the photos you can put on your Hinge, this one is the worst.

Posting pictures with dead fish.

Maybe you’ll think, “Who on God’s green earth would do that?”

You’d be surprised.

So many men post photos with their scaly trophies, girls actually write Hinge prompts about them.

Look, it’s not just about the fish. It’s about anything you have on your profile that makes her go:

“O, no. He’s one of THOSE guys!”

Be a little different, will ya?

6. Look fun to hang out with

Most women don’t fall for the things you think.

Attraction is not just about fame, an infinite bank account, washboard abs, and a jawline that can cut diamonds.

If it were, the most successful photos would be of ripped half-naked male models making it rain with the Queen of England.

Anyway, men who get the hottest women on Hinge usually have far more normal profiles.

Profiles were they look friendly, chill, and happy.


Because women on Hinge (or any other Tinder alternative) are largely asking themselves one thing as they look at your profile:

“Does he look fun to hang out with?”

How do you look like someone that’s fun to hang out with?

The easiest way is probably to pose with pets.

Research shows women have a weakness for men who pose with kitties and doggos.

And can you blame them?

When I see this photo I just want to step into my screen and give that cutie a cuddle. I just love a man in nerdy glasses.

Anyway, if I feel the impulse to cuddle that doggo, she’ll feel that tenfold.

You can also do something different that’s equally adorable.

Like playing the guitar, cooking, painting, or holding a young relative atop your shoulders.

7. Focus on vibes over looks

Here’s how to get TONS of matches with average looks.

Have spontaneous-looking photos that ooze personality.

What does that look like?

Let me show you.

Forget it’s Tinder for a second.

Doesn’t that photo look epic while also saying a lot about who I am and what I like to do?

These types of photos are the secret sauce that’ll make your Hinge profile irresistible.

My student also watched his matches climb after he uploaded this shot:

He doesn’t have to show his face, because he used it as his 4th photo.

TO BE CLEAR: you don’t have to show yourself doing anything sporty or extreme.

As long as it gives a peek into your life and gives her the feeling she’s missing out.

Take stock of your hobbies and see if you can turn it into an enticing photo.

8. Use the right group photo

Sometimes the same photo can make or break your Hinge success depending on its position in your profile.

What the heck am I talking about?

Group photos.

Only use ’em on your Hinge profile if you’re the center of attention and look like a baws.

So not like this.

How is she supposed to know who’s Bret?

Or this.

Although the girl in the photo is my ex-girlfriend, and my hand is resting on her thigh…

…it looks like I’m awkwardly making a move on my bro’s girl on the left, while he’s looking like he’s about to drop a bombass rap album.

In other words: he looks like a big dicked playa, while I look like a virgin.

9. Show off your muscle casually

Your muscles may actually be hurting your chances to get laid.


It’s too fuckboi.

In normal language: you look like you only want to do the bedroom mambo.

And that’s a big turnoff for most women. Even if she’s open to a casual relationship, because it gives her the impression you’ll stick your salami in anyone. And that you’re too in love with yourself.

Women usually prefer to sleep with men who are boyfriend material.

Even if she’s not looking for something serious.

That’s why you only want to show off your muscles when it makes sense.

Like when:

  • You’re playing beach volleyball.
  • You’re doing a handstand and your shirt falls over your face, exposing your washboard.
  • You’re helping a friend out with their art project.

This isn’t a shirtless pic, it’s art.

10. Show off your sense of humor

The next photo will make her laugh and will increase the odds of her liking you.

And if that wasn’t good enough, it’s also super easy to make.

What the heck am I talking about?

Become a memelord.

Yes, you finally have permission to be your true trolly self.

Well, maybe not your true self.

Women usually don’t like dank.

Too much of an acquired taste, my friend.

The key to a successful Hinge meme, is threefold:

  • Put it last.
  • Make sure it’s easily understood by most people.
  • It makes you laugh.

Something like this.

11. Create irresistible prompts

The stats show that prompts get the most reactions, not photos.


Because prompts are best at giving her a taste of what you’re actually like.

So a great answer to a prompt labels you a ‘catch’ and motivates her to compliment you on your wit.

Here come a few prompts that you can use right away.

Dating Me Is Like: Finding an extra chicken nugget in your McDonalds.

Dating Me Is Like: Waking up and discovering you have another 3 hours before you have to get up.

Or, Dating Me Is Like: Coming home from work and remembering you have leftover pizza.

Worst Roommate Story: Once shared a womb with another dude for 9 months.

A personal favorite that I can’t sadly can’t use. 🙁

Write fun prompts and I’ll guarantee that you can watch the messages pour in.

12. Make it personal

Here’s how you can get a chance with those girls who are out of your league.

Leave great comments on her prompts and photos.

The right message can make her excited to talkwith you and invite you to chat.


*hacker voice*

You’re in.

So how do you leave great messages?

You make it personal.

Let me give you some examples.

Is she scuba diving? Comment: “You can stop searching now, we already found Nemo.”

Is she posing in a car without a seatbelt? Reply: “Not sure if I should crush on a girl who’s allergic to seatbelts.”

Does her prompt say she loves action movies? Give her a dilemma that’s older than time: “Mission Impossible or James Bond?”

Does she have a dog photo? “Did you know dogs can be trained to smell diseases? I trained mine to find my dignity.”

These are just examples that I came up with on the spot as I was swiping.

Point is, personalization works because:

  • It’s relevant to her
  • It shows you paid attention to something else than her looks
  • It shows wit

Do you find it difficult to come up with personalized openers?
