Why you want to send her pictures on Tinder
Being able to send a girl photos of your daily shenanigans is GREAT for raising attraction.
An issue dating apps suffer from is that it’s so easy to treat people as lifeless characters from a dating sim, rather than humans with feelings.
Did the conversation with your cute Tinder match get a little stale? Then it’s almost standard procedure to ignore them.
Which feels fine when you’re doing the ignoring. But HURTS when you’re the one being ignored.
How do you keep her too interested to leave you on read?
By humanizing yourself through sending photos.
Sharing photos makes you more human.
Now you’re a person instead of just a match.
How to send pictures on Tinder
- Send her a link to your image.
- Add the photo to your Tinder profile.
- Upload your image to Tinder’s GIF library.
- Send Bitmojis.
1. Upload your image to an image hosting service
First, have a photo of something that’s guaranteed to make her a little jealous or interested in you.
I’m a big fan of food (although I will shank you if you call me a ‘foodie’). So I’ll probably snap a pic of something I’m eating.
Voila. A burger.
Next, you want to open your internet browser of choice (on your phone, DUH) and follow these instructions:
- Enter this URL: https://prnt.sc/.
- Once you’re on the website, ignore everything except the big blue button that reads, “Browse images”
- Hit the button and you’ll be asked to open your photo library
- Select your burger (or whatever photo you want to share) and be sure to confirm by hitting ‘Choose’
- You’ll be brought back to the website, where you’ll see something like this:
- Tap the link to confirm it’s the photo you want. (It ought to be.) And copy the link
- Next, open the convo of your special Tinder friend, paste that sucker into the chat, and hit send
She can see your delicious cholesterol-raising snack and go green with envy. Or you know, she’ll get interested in your life and send you more texts.
The above method is not the only way you can create links for your photos.
You can also share your camera roll by uploading content to iCloud, Google Drive, Facebook, or Instagram.
Each of these platforms lets you generate links for your photos.
So go with whichever platform or method you enjoy most and feels the safest.
I personally like to stick to Instagram.
IMPORTANT: Don’t just send her a link out the blue. She has no idea what you’re sending her and why she should click the link.
For all she knows, you could be sending her some kind of nasty virus.
So be sure to lead in your link a little.
Using my burger example, I’d probably go:
Using this kind of set-up, I’ve never had a girl refuse to open my link.
2. Add the image to your profile
Head to your profile and click ‘ADD MEDIA’.
Added the big circle in case you had cataracts.
From here, upload the photo you want to send your Tinder match.
I know what you’re thinking, “But won’t everybody be able to see the photo now?”
That’s why you want to take it down right after your match sees it.
In fact, you don’t even want to upload the photo WITHOUT first having an engaging conversation with your special Tinder match.
If you’re not having a continuous chat, there’s no point in uploading your photo. Sure, you can send her a text saying, “I have a special picture for you in my Tinder profile.”
But she may not see that for hours. And if you uploaded a dank meme, your match count may take a beating.
Here are the 3 steps to send a picture to someone on Tinder as I just described:
- Be sure to have a back-and-forth with the Tinder match you want to send the picture.
- Tell your Tinder match to check your photos for a surprise.
- Delete once she sees it.
Depending on the vibe and topic of the convo, I’d probably inform her with a text like this:
That sense of urgency will ensure she checks it out. Plus, it’ll add a lot of excitement to the convo.
After all, I’m confident she’s never had a guy show her a picture like that.
So be her first.
3. Create your own GIFs
Tinder’s GIF button is connected to Giphy’s search engine.
That means that the GIFs you upload to Giphy end up on Tinder.
How does it work?
- Download and launch the Giphy app.
- Select ‘Upload From Camera Roll’.
- Add tags so you can find it on Tinder.
- Tap ‘Upload to Giphy’.
Now you can open Tinder and send every match your own original GIF!
4. Send Bitmojis
I’m not gonna lie, I HATE Bitmojis and everything that has to do with Snapchat.
This probably hurts my outreach on the internet in some way, but so be it.
Anyway, why do I mention Bitmojis to you if I wouldn’t be caught dead using them?
Because the childish Bitmoji does work. Young adults in their early 20s especially seem to enjoy the occasional Bitmoji.
So, just because I’m not a fan doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be either.
Although you young readers out there will know all about Bitmojis, my older audience may not.
So let me explain.
A Bitmoji is basically a cartoon version of you that you’re completely free to design via Snapchat.
Once your Bitmoji is finished, you have a huge archive of ‘sticker’s of your Bitmoji that you can send to your Tinder match.
Here’s a collection of stickers from some random lady. Which essentially work like memes.
As you can see, it’s not as bad as I made it out to be. I’m just in my 30s and slowly becoming a grumpy old man.
So how do you use Bitmojis on Tinder?
You open a Tinder chat window and hit the green icon next to GIF.
Next, a window will pop up asking you to “Connect To Snapchat.” Type in your login details and you’re set.
Afraid your matches will know your Snapchat?
Don’t be. Tinder keeps your handle a secret.
The best photos to send to your Tinder match
- Highlights of your day. Perhaps a nice homecooked meal, a trip to the beach, or a pair of horses going at it in a field.
- Date ideas. Perhaps an empty seat on a terrace with the caption “I saved it for you. Where are you???”
- Custom memes. Meme-ify her photos.
Here’s an example of how a student from my Mentoring Program made a meme for one of his Bumble matches.
Make her addicted to your texts
Okay, bud, I have one last gift for you.
An opener SO GOOD that it won me an Oscar. A fan from Mexico who writes me fan mail every day. It’s really flattering.
Seriously, I do have a super-effective opener that you can use on all your new Tinder matches to get a reply.
Plus, I also have a few follow-up lines for you to reel her in after you break the ice.
You can find them AND a video of me going over the opener by hitting the big gold button down below.
If you click the link now, you’ll also get a video of me using my most powerful texting technique: The Personality Slice.
