Do you prefer video? That’s great, I made a video where I review a bad Tinder about me + share a great bio!
Check it out:
1. Stop proving yourself
I’m going to show you the profile of an absolute stunner. The kind of girl most guys would call a 10.
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.
Alrighty. 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.” Nice, she’s smart. “University instructor.” Alright, not really sure what that means but pretty cool I guess. “Dance lover.” Cute, sounds feminine. “Fitchick.” She works out, dope.
But here’s when everyone’s enthusiasm evaporated: “IQ 139, height 1.72 m.”
And then it got worse. “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:
How cringe can you get, right?
Anyway, I digress. Back to the 10 with the Einstein brain.
Her bio SCREAMS insecurity. No confident person who’s at ease with themselves feels the need to qualify like this.
But more importantly, nobody likes it. Research shows that people LIKE seeing your achievements, but they DISLIKE it when you boast about it.
What does this all mean for you?
Show don’t tell.
For example, if you have a bomb-ass blog, then let them discover how awesome it is by providing a link.
Are you hilarious? Then try to make her laugh by writting a funny bio.
2. Stick to one theme
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. Ait.
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. She can discover just how awesome you are without you even trying.
No, not a catfish. (As far as I know).
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.
Julian went full TextGod and did his research. He lets women know that he is up to their hidden agenda. Him and the ladies only have 1% chance of matching.
What do you think of this bio, my dear reader?
Good? Bad? Excellent? Horrible? Average like the size of coach Dan’s donger?
A Tinder about me section like this is… OVERKILL.
Just like with cooking, mixing 10 amazing ingredients together doesn’t make it 10 times better. In fact, it often makes it worse.
What should Julian have done instead?
Stuck to his ONE favorite element. Like the hair-pulling joke.
This combined with a handful of solid Tinder photos and connected Instagram would have made a solid profile that attracts girls looking for a fun time.
If he was looking for something more long-term, he could have combined his ‘scientific research’ line with a call to action. Such as, “Swipe right if you’re actually looking for something serious.”
That would make his profile more appealing to ladies on the lookout for love.

3. Be cool but humble
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 introduced me and my friend to the app. All excited, we instantly made a profile with their help.
He was the real-life version of the online Chad. And I was the typical virgin, except for the small penis.
Once we launched our profiles, things got pretty painful for me.
His profile was an instant hit. My profile was uhm… instant shit.
The girls that I did manage to get on dates (they weren’t much to write home about at the start) all agreed: “You look better in real life than on your photos!”
When I got back to Belgium to visit my parents, I told my mom that all the girls said I looked better IRL.
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 match count EXPLODED. I even got girls to send me the first text!
I didn’t really know why I had all this success, until I heard Andy High from the University of Iowa say this:
“You want to balance all that is wonderful about yourself with some things that aren’t negative, but more humble or realistic about yourself.”
In short: be cool AND humble.
4. Attract who you want with your about me caption
Here’s why so many guys go on dates with women and find out they aren’t right for each other.
They don’t push away the wrong type of girl.
You got that right. The best Tinder about me’s FILTER out the bad.
This is especially true if you live in a big city. If your bio doesn’t filter out anything, then you’ll go on tons of dates with women who will waste your time.
I firmly believe that selection is the most important part of a relationship.
And it’s no different in business.
Imagine you run your own company. And you hired a woman who’s a bit too lazy for your taste. Sure, you could probably transform her to become more of a pro-active worker. But it’ll cost you lots of time and energy, plus she’ll probably still be lazier than someone who’s inherently a proactive person.
And it’s the same with romantic 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 continues. “…So okay, that’s not going to be a hookup. Fine, now I know to stop texting her. But now she’s really into me and can’t stop sending me texts!”
You could say this is a selection mistake by BOTH of them. Dan is looking for a quick love affair. His date is looking for a serious relationship.
What does this mean for you?
Know what you’re looking for, and then tailor your Tinder about me to attract precisely your type.
You’re not going to get laid when your profile is filled with photos of you cuddling a dog, holding your baby cousin, and some motivational quote about achieving goals.
5. Steal my best profile texts
In the following video I reveal my niche Tinder about me. It’s very useful to attract exactly your type on any dating app.

6. Three funny Tinder about me examples
Time for some funny Tinder about me ideas for you!
Over the years, these lines have become the property of the interwebs, so copy and steal like there’s no tomorrow.
This one is fun when you’re leaning more towards sexual encounters:
I got a B+ in Human Sexuality in college, so let’s just say I know my way around a… *checks poorly scribbled notes* Cliboris
If you’re optimistic and plan on meeting her parents:
I’m the kinda guy you can take home to meet your mom. She’ll think I’m super funny, and charming… and cute, but actually kind of sexy at the same time? She falls in love with me. I… think I feel the same way. We get married. I’m your dad now.
I confront you, “young lady why are you on Tinder?” You’re now grounded.
Looking for something possibly serious while showing her you got mad kitchen skills?
Current relationship status:
Made dinner for two. Ate both.
Here’s how to write your own original Tinder about me: remix something funny that already exists.
Try to remix some of the bios in this tip for practice.
7. Tell a story with a happy ending
Here’s a quite common Tinder about me used by people looking for Trüe Lövë and… who’ve had some bad experiences and have grown bitter and/or lonely.
So they come up with a bio like this:
- Swipe left if you’re looking for sex.
- ⚠️NO ONS
- I miss cuddling in front of a movie, doing silly things together, and laughing uncontrollably with someone I love.
These are quite extreme examples, but I literally copy pasted these from actual Tinder profiles. So it DOES happen.
Anyway, what these people don’t realize is that these about me’s are SCARY. AS. HELL. The amount of people you scare off with these lines are HUGE.
I mean, talk about red flags.
So why not make your desire for something serious and loving a little more playful?
If you can still laugh in spite of your pain, you’ll attract way more women.
That’s just what Larry tried:
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 goes down.
Times you stayed down? 7. Times you got up? 69. Giggity.
Here’s what I’d like you to take away from all this:
Larry tells what happened to him with a little story. He doesn’t just state bare facts. Plus, he tries to give it a good spin. (Although poor Larry still seems like he might be a little butt hurt, so there’s room for improvement).
Anyway. Guess who’s bio is going to have the most fruitful harvest? The person who shows that life can’t take them down.
8. A bio that attracts hookups
Looking for quick hookups? Not into all that lovey dovey shit? Then this one’s for you
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:
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 who’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. Make your Tinder bio better with specificity
I’m going to look at a VERY common bio with you right now and make it 10 times better on the spot.
It’s a bio that I see over and over, and over, and over again… I call it… the grocery list. You’ve no doubt seen them too because girls use them all the time.
The next screenie took me exactly four swipes to find.
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 things all humans do? Luckily, she did make some items in her list a bit more specific. She mentions “Bubbly drinks, Berlin vibes, and fashion magazines.”
But there’s a problem. Do you think she’s going to find dudes with subscriptions to fashion magazines?
Do you remember the 10 girl with a thousand IQ from the start of this article? Let’s upgrade her bio.
Let’s rewrite this terrible about me into something that’ll actually attract what she wants. For example:
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 doesn’t scream “HEY, I AM INSECURE AS HELL” plus it’ll filter out guys looking for sex, while making her potential matches 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).
