Important: There is only one official way to change your age on Tinder
Tinder only has one way for you to change your age. And that’s through Facebook.
Did you create your Tinder account via email or your phone number?
Then you’re basicly stuck with the age you have now.
However, there is one unofficial way to change your age, that we’ll get into in a bit.
Did you use Facebook to set up your Tinder? Continue on to the next tip.
Method #1: Changing your Tinder age through Facebook
IMPORTANT: This method only works if your Tinder is linked to your Facebook.
If you’re Tinder and Facebook are connected, changing your age is easy.
Just head to your Facebook profile that’s linked to Tinder and click the ‘About’ tab under your cover photo.
From there, click on ‘Contact and basic info’.
Glance to the right of your screen and you should see ‘Basic info’ PLUS your birth date.
Click the little pencil and you’ll see drop-down menus that let you change your age.
Once you’re done, click ‘Save’.
Be sure to get the date right this time!
Because you can only edit your date of birth a limited number of times. I don’t know what number that limit is exactly. But my guess would be anywhere from 3 to 5.
So don’t be wasteful.
Once you’ve changed your age on Facebook, Tinder will adopt the number after roughly 24 hours.
Method #2: Changing your Tinder age (The unofficial way)
Sometimes you might want to change your Tinder age, but not your Facebook age.
Or you signed up using email or phone number and you’re unable to change your age, but want to do so anyway.
You’ll need to create a new Tinder account from the ground up, using a fake Facebook profile.
To clarify, you need to:
- Delete your old Tinder so that Tinder’s algorithm won’t ban your new ‘copycat’ account
- Create a new Facebook account that looks real (dummy accounts get banned)
- Set up a new Tinder account
It’s quite a bit of work. But it’s worth the effort, right?
Lying about your age to get more matches
The TextGod Mentoring Program attracts people from all walks of life. Each with their own problems.
But one particular demographic always come to me with the same problem:
“Louis, how do I date a woman younger than me?”
For any ladies reading this, no this isn’t a sleazy urge. Many of my older clients want to date younger women because the girls in their age group are often settled or have kids of their own.
While there are many ways to attract people younger than you, a BIG one is changing the digits on your Tinder profile.
Firstly, if you never touch Tinder’s age range slider, the app will only show you people between 18 and 30.
Are you 30+ and want to date someone younger? You’re out of luck. You’ll only match youngsters who’ve played around with their age slider.
And that’s not a huge amount of people.
So it REALLY helps having an age that fits inside the spectrum of 18 to 30.
“Does that mean you need to lie about your age?”
Yes and no.
While you DO have to change those big digits beneath your profile photos.
I do strongly recommend you share your true age in one of two ways:
- If you clearly don’t look your age: put it in your bio
- If you can pass as a 20-something-year-old: tell your match how old you are via text
Revealing your age via text is my favorite because then she won’t just be making a choice based on a number, but how you made her feel.
Many women will reject a man based on their age, simply because they were brought up to act that way.
But if she matches with you under the assumption that you’re almost the same age as her AND finds out you’re witty and absolutely hilarious… ..she may not care that you’re older than she previously thought.
There’s just one thing I want you to do if you use a fake age:
Always, and I mean ALWAYS, tell her how old you are before you meet her.
Otherwise you may as well be a catfish. And that’s super creepy, bro. Don’t be that guy.
Is it a bad idea to date someone younger than you?
Age difference can be a dealbreaker for some people. Should it be?
Depends on you and the person you want to date.
Here are the two biggest problems:
- They don’t necessarily have the same references as you
- They aren’t necessarily in the same part of their life as you
A girl in her early 20s is unlikely ready to settle down. And a woman in her 40s is unlikely up for a casual relationship or Tinder hookup.
The biggest danger, however, is… Being on separate wavelengths.
Before you get involved with someone significantly younger (or older) than you, ask yourself:
“Are you willing to take the risk that they won’t be in the same place as you 10 years from now?”
One school of thought is: you can’t help who you fall in love with. So just go with it.
That’s a very romantic way of thinking. I’m more of a pragmatic thinker.
While I don’t want to force my line of thought onto you, I’ll leave you with this:
If you think the age difference fits your dating goals, go for it. Just be aware of the risks involved.
Talking about risks, here comes another you MUST be aware of if you’re dating a woman in her 30s or above.
With the technical deets about changing your age out of the way, I’ve got one last gift for you.
