What are the benefits of a Tinder reset?

  • More views. New accounts get a ‘newbie boost’ and make it possible for you to be seen by even the most desirable people.
  • Another chance. You get another chance to seduce the people who swiped you left the first time.
  • Improved match rate. Tinder’s algorithm connects you with other profiles based on your profile’s desirability. Updating your profile and resetting will get you favorable treatment.

And if you choose to wait 3 months before you create a new profile, Tinder will also delete all your user data.

What are the downsides of a Tinder reset?

  • Matches and conversations will vanish. I recommend taking screenshots of your favorite interactions before resetting.
  • Loss of your paid subscriptions. If you paid in advance for future months, you won’t get your money back.
  • Risk of a ban. Tinder’s guidelines discourage users from deleting and recreating their accounts too much.

Tinder excuses the occasional reset. But if you reset your account frequently, a ban is likely imminent.

And Tinder won’t tell you you’re banned either.

When the “There’s no one new around you” message pops up if you live in a populous city, you’ve probably been shadowbanned.

What’s the best time to reset your Tinder account?

The only time I recommend clients to reset their Tinder account is when both of the next criteria are met:

  • They’re not getting the results they want. Like when you don’t get high-quality matches, or if you’ve been shadowbanned.
  • They have new high-quality photos to build a new and desirable profile.

If you reset without giving your Tinder profile a facelift, chances are that you’ll end up in the same place as before.

How to get more matches after your Tinder reset

Here are three easy tips on how to build a profile that’s too attractive for her to ignore.

1. Upload an attractive first photo

The perfect first photo is never a selfie or a group photo.

Selfies are bad for a host of reasons, but mostly because they distort your face up to 30%.

And group photos create too much clutter. The harder she has to work to pick you out of the crowd, the bigger the chance she’ll swipe you left.

How am I supposed to know who’s Bret?

Neuroscientific research shows that a chest-up portrait is your best bet to make a good and sexy impression.

I even ran an experiment to test it. Here’s an old photo of mine:

And at the time, I thought it was a great photo.

Manly gaze? Check.

Spanish suntan? Check.

Swole biceps? Check.

Surely it would charm the ladies.

But when I uploaded my photo to Photofeeler.com and I got crushed. I looked dumb, shady and… ORDINARY!

After hours of crying in the fetal position, I manned up and rang my photographer buddy.

Then we shot this masterpiece

Skrrrrrt!

A perfect upper-body shot.

For those out of the know, Photofeeler is a website where you can get unbiased feedback on your photos for free.

I highly recommend it.

2. Show off your personality

Besides your looks, women are looking at your profile for one thing:

“What will it be like to hang out with him?”

So what would you like her to think of you?

Do you want her to think you’re smart, caring, funny, or that you have 10 inches of man meat between your legs?

Whatever story that you’d like her to have of you, you want to express who you are through your profile photos. Because your bio can just be copied from the internet and insincere.

Let me give you an example.

Here’s a Tinder photo I used to communicate that I was adventurous and a bit of a free spirit.

A surfing pic.

Secret: at the time, I could barely make turns. But as far as she knows, I’m staring off into the distance waiting to catch the next wave to do crazy tricks on.

I invite all of my clients to take on an adventurous hobby. And I recommend you to do the same.

And I’m not talking about you and your buddies raiding Naxxramas with your guild. (Perfect 29 Undead Priest player with Deadman’s Hand, here.)

Find a hobby that takes you out of the house and boosts your confidence.

The ladies like men with an edge.

3. Write a bio that gets her to send you the first text

If you want a match-tripling bio, keep the next principle in mind:

Show, don’t tell.

Telling: “I’m funny.”

Showing: “I want to say adult things to you. Now turn off the fugging lights because we paid $300 in utilities last month.”

See the difference?

Here are a few more examples that I’ve categorized based on what they say about you.

  • I’m a bit of an introvert:
    “I’m the life of the party, but only when it’s inside my bag of Fritos.”
  • I’m sexual and playful:
    “My kink is when women care about my feelings and what I have to say.”
  • I’m a fun nerd:
    “Used to be 100% indifferent to birds my whole life, then one day I was like “damn is that a yellow-rumped warbler??”

And here’s an old favorite of mine.

This geek is secretly a testosterone-exploding beast.

Anyway, pick a bio that tells the right story about you. For 15 more hilarious bios, check out my article:

FAQ: Do I need to reset my account to be seen by girls who already swiped me left?

No. Tinder also gives you a second chance to be seen by people who already swiped you after an undisclosed period.

The current theory says that period shortens when your profile gets significantly more likes and becomes more desirable.

How to reset your Tinder account – Conclusion

Resetting your Tinder profile can completely change your Tinder experience. You can go from few to zero matches, to getting a handful of high-quality matches per day.

But only if you improve your profile first.

If you reset your Tinder profile and use the exact same photos and bio as before… nothing will change.

What should you focus on when you give your old Tinder profile a facelift? Everything that’s not working.
